Window tinting films have evolved so much in recent years. Gone is the era of strange colors and peeling corners, only durable films that provide a wide array of benefits for building owners and users.
During summer, the air conditioning system needs to harder to regulate the building’s temperature, which means energy costs skyrocket. Window tinting films can offer substantial return on investment by obstructing much of the sun’s heat. Premium performance films can even filter as much as 75% of such heat, enabling them to cut most commercial buildings’ operating costs in the hotter months.
Solar-filtering window films can help get rid of office hot spots, decrease glare on computer monitors, and regulate the amount of light that goes into every room. The overall environment created by the above adds to the comfort of employees and clients all year around.
Privacy and Security
Window films enhance a building’s privacy while still letting enough natural light inside. Vandalism, accidents, harsh weather conditions are some of the saddest realities for any commercial building. Window films work by adding a protective layer that prevents further damage. If the glass breaks, the pieces will be held in position by the film while a window replacement gets on its way, thus reducing the risk of injury to building occupants.
Protection from the Interior
Over time, ultraviolet rays can harm electronics, furniture, electronics and most other things. Tinted window films help prevent such damage. They block out most of the harsh UV light and heat, controlling fading and overall solar damage.
Improved Appearance of Building Exterior
No matter how old or new a building is, modern window films can give it an instant fresh and slick look. The films can make any piece of glass look tidy and spotless. Even if different curtains or blinds are used in different rooms, the films will make the building look uniform all throughout when view from the outside. New window films can now even be removed and replaced while keeping the old glass, which is just one of the many cost-saving advantages of window films.
Low Maintenance Costs
Finally, when it comes to window tinting, minimal maintenance will be required. Since film is not as porous as glass, dirt and streaks will not be as obvious to the eye, and the period between glass cleanings can be extended. If the windows actually need to be washed, a basic mild detergent and water solution is often enough, and the glass must be wiped dry afterwards with the use of a paper towel or soft cloth. Every now and then, it’s also good to use silicone products for buffing the films.
