Modern Home Improvements – 4 Popular Types of Window Films

Residential window film tinting is often compared with car window tinting. Nevertheless, this is an unfair comparison as window coats can do more than protect your home from the sunlight. The development of premier technologies has allowed for versatile uses and advantages for window film, which varies depending on your preferences. 

 

Reinforcing your property with window film

Applying window film to your home or office can decrease the opacity of your windows. Yet, did you also know that they can do more than just obstruct an outsider’s vision? Although almost all window coatings reduce window glare and increase protection from the sun’s UV rays, there are other unique qualities they offer.

If you’re planning on reinforcing your property’s windows with window films, here are four different types you can choose from: 

1. Dual reflective film

These metallised coatings are composed of microscopic metal fragments that help in reflecting and bouncing glare and heat from your window, similar to how mirrors reflect light. Because of their reflective properties, it won’t only reduce the sunlight in your rooms, but it will also serve as an eco-friendly way to reduce your air conditioning bills. Window films of this category offer the most basic protection to your windows.

2. Hybrid window film

These types make use of a blend of special dyes and pigments to absorb the sun’s UV rays. Because of this, your windows are capable of absorbing a higher level of heat compared to traditional windows. Unfortunately, this can become a double-edged effect because it will put more strain on your windows’ glass, especially during harsh summer seasons.

3. Premium window film

This type is made from the most durable heat absorbent materials that make for great additions to any property. Not only does it overcome the weaknesses of hybrid window layers, but it also takes it up a notch by having greater insulation properties. It uses ceramic, which is used as the main component in space crafts and power lines to limit the passing of heat. Premium window coating is your best option in providing a durable reinforcement of your property’s windows. 

4. Privacy window film

Although most types are clear or made with a subtle tint, decorative films offer all of the traditional window’s basic protection while giving them a stylish accent. You can order etched, patterned, frosted, and even coloured films that are designed to your preference.

If you want to go the extra mile in increasing your privacy, you can opt instead to have reflective privacy film, similar to how double-sided windows function. This mirror-like finish allows you the benefit of maintaining vision on the outside while reflecting their vision back.

 

Conclusion

In installing window film to your property, you need to know what your needs are and where your window placements are located. Recognising your home’s geographic placement can help save you money when you don’t necessarily have to apply tinting to all your windows. The best way to improve your property’s protection and privacy is by being aware of what your property’s weaknesses are and committing to a solution that can be a significant investment in keeping it safe and secure.

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.
