Window tint provides many benefits, from savings in energy costs to the intangible qualities of a more beautiful view of your surroundings. Depending on the product that you choose, there are a number of benefits to be found by installing window tint in your home, office, or retail space.
Reduce Fading of Your Merchandise and Furnishings
Window tint blocks up to 100.0% of UV (ultraviolet) rays, known to be the major cause of damage to floors, window treatments, artwork, furnishings, and store merchandise. By reducing fading you increase the lifetime of your possessions and inventory, thereby saving replacement costs and maintaining drapes, paintings, photographs, carpets, and other surfaces far into the future. And by maintaining your store’s merchandise, you can keep your valuable items on the showroom floor longer.
Decrease Unwanted Energy Transfer
Window tint is one of the most efficient ways to decrease the transfer of undesirable solar energy through your windows, and can provide up to 98% infrared heat reduction when compared to unprotected windows. In addition, window tint can reduce temperature imbalances in your home, office, or retail space, creating a more comfortable environment for you and your customers, clients and co-workers.
Excessive glare from the sun is one of the most common complaints we hear and one that is easily remedied by the installation of the correct window tint. Reduced glare means less strain on the eyes and increased visual comfort when viewing daytime television, working at your computer, and displaying your merchandise for customers.
Save on Energy Costs
Reducing energy transfer in your home, office, or retail space will result in less work for your cooling and heating system by maintaining even temperatures all year round. This translates into lower energy bills and reduced maintenance costs, while increasing comfort.
With decorative and privacy films you can subtly change the look of your home, office, or retail space while giving you a level of privacy to suit your tastes. Privacy films are an effective way to provide additional privacy for office workers while continuing to offer a natural view of the outside.
Enhance Your Safety
Window tint — especially those with a high safety rating — can help reduce injury in a storm by holding together shattered glass and keeping the shards from entering your home, office, or retail space. The right film can also make it more difficult for a thief to enter through a window, thereby providing an additional crime deterrent.
Protect Against Skin Cancer
Standard, unprotected windows allow nearly all of the sun’s harmful UV rays to stream in unchecked, which can damage your skin as if you were outside in the sun. By reducing up to 100.0% of UV rays entering your home, window films act just like a sunscreen, protecting your skin while allowing you to sit comfortably in sunlit areas. In fact, the Skin Cancer Institute now recommends window films as a protection against indoor exposure to harmful UV rays.
