Tips in Choosing the Right Window Tint VLT (Visual Light Transmission)

There are various reasons for building and homeowners to have window tinting. Window film is a thin laminate film meant to be installed on the interior or exterior of the glass surfaces of a home or building. The primary purpose of window tinting is to control the amount of light entering any space. However, there are other factors to consider, such as the level of privacy, glare, and temperature, among others. Below are some tips on choosing the right window percentage for your home or building.

 

For privacy

If you’re looking to increase the privacy in your room, opt for a lower tint percentage. Tint percentage below 20 per cent is much darker and allows less light to enter. Textured tints prevent people from seeing through your windows. Even at night with the lights on, people won’t be able to see the inside of the room. Such window tint percentage is suitable for your bedroom, bathroom, office partition or entryway if you intend to have some privacy.

 

For improved visibility

Another reason to install window tinting is for better visibility. UV control tint is a viable solution for this. Because of this, having window tints with a low interior visible reflection also maybe your best option. If you own a storefront business with a window display section, potential customers can view the products inside without worrying about the sun’s reflection. Also, at night, these window films allow you to see through your windows to enjoy the night view from your office or home.

 

For temperature control

Temperature control is another factor to consider when choosing the percentage of your window tint. Opt for the window tint that will work for you whether you want to keep the heat in or out. First, there are window films that keep the room warm by redistributing the room temperature to reduce cold spots. This is a good option to maintain the heat within your home during winter. On the other hand, there are heat control window films that help reduce the amount of heat entering a room. These window films are the best option for you if your home or business gets too hot because of the sun’s heat entering through the windows.

 

For glare reduction

Some people choose window tinting for glare reduction. There are window films that reduce the glare caused by natural light while allowing plenty of light to get through. Because of this, they do not compromise your view of the exterior. These films are ideal for your business, particularly if you operate computers and have difficulty viewing the screen due to the glare from the windows. The same is true for your windows at home, where the glare from the window might impact your TV viewing experience.

 

For sunlight reduction

Finally, you may want to choose window films for sunlight reduction. The sun’s rays are at times concentrated in a particular spot at various times throughout the day. This makes your business or home uncomfortable when the sunlight gets through glass surfaces and regular windows. That said, select the film type that will redistribute the light in your premises. These window films help to reflect light upwards and inwards so that the room is lit evenly.

Choosing the right window film percentage depends on your window needs. Whether it’s for privacy, glare reduction, or temperature control, you must know exactly what you want. Consider the top tips outlined above to set you in the right direction in choosing the right window tint for your home or office.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
