How Window Tint Can Make Your Home A Safer Place
How Window Tint Can Make Your Home A Safer Place

There are many things you can do to secure your home from intruders. You can put locks on the doors or a fence around the property. You can set up closed-circuit cameras to monitor the premises and install a door alarm system to warn you if someone attempts to break in. However, some entry points that may leave you vulnerable are your windows.

Large windows are great for enjoying the scenic view around your property as well as allowing natural light to illuminate and warm your interiors. Unfortunately, the bigger the windows are, the more inviting they become for forcible entry.

To address this, some homeowners put metal grills or mesh over their windows to keep unwanted guests out. Covering them may make you safer, but it defeats the purpose of having windows, and it distorts your view of the outside world. One discreet way to add a layer of protection for your home is to install window tint.

If you want to be able to enjoy the benefits of having big windows but still keep your home safe, here are a few ways window tint can help:

 

1. They can prevent injury

Glass panes can suffer from thermal stress breakage. Even without a criminal forcing his way in through the windows, they can break when exposed to extreme temperatures. Flying debris, a wayward ball, or a person who loses their balance and falls against the window can cause it to shatter. When the glass shards fall, they may hurt your family members or anyone standing near the window. Window tint can hold the pieces together and make it easier to remove and replace the pane.

 

2. They can keep prying eyes out

Some window tints have a layer of opacity that can block unwanted attention. If you have a portion of your house that is near a public street or sidewalk, you can add a layer of tint that will keep outsiders from looking in. Translucent window film is particularly useful for home offices or bathrooms. Applying film can also deter criminals, especially if you have high-value items or you constantly view sensitive information on paper or your screens.

 

3. They block harmful ultraviolet rays

While we can take steps to protect our home against forced entry, window film can stop invisible intruders that we don’t know are entering our house every day. Ultraviolet (UV) rays are radiation emitted by the sun. While some exposure to UV is necessary for humans, chronic exposure to it can cause sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer. Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking we are protected from the sun while indoors. It is not always the case, as untreated windows can leave us exposed to harmful levels of radiation while we go about our regular activities.

 

In conclusion

Protection for your home can come in many forms, and tinting the windows of your house is one of them. Not only can they prevent visible forms of intrusion, but they provide a barrier for unseen ones as well. Contact a window tinting supplier in your area who can recommend the best solutions for your unique home design. A layer of tint is a quick, easy, and customisable option that can protect any vulnerable windows and give you peace of mind.

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.
