It’s likely the average consumer has never considered buying window film, in fact, many of you may be asking yourself “who needs window film?” The answer is fairly simple — anyone who is concerned about personal and property protection.
You should consider window film if you:
Own a car.
Window film is like sunscreen for your car. Automotive films, just like architectural films, can block up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays. Research shows that 53% of skin cancers in the U.S. occur on the left, or drivers’, side of the body. Professionally-installed solar control films, also known as tinted window films, help block out both UVA and UVB rays that cause skin cancer. By blocking UV rays, window films also reduce glare, reduce heat inside the vehicle, and protect the interior from fading and cracking.
Own a home.
Just like you probably wouldn’t think to apply sunscreen before getting inside your car, you probably wouldn’t consider putting on SPF 30 just to sit in your living room or bedroom. The harmful UV rays that penetrate unprotected glass can damage your skin, causing premature aging and wrinkles, and as we already mentioned, skin cancer. Solar control films reduce your AC usage and energy costs by lowering the amount of heat entering your home. Your AC simply won’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool. If that wasn’t enough, window films can also reduce glare which can cause eyestrain, as well as offer protection from fading of interior furnishings, carpeting, artwork, and flooring.
Own a business.
Business owners are concerned about protecting their investment. Whether you own a small business or multi-million dollar company, having window film professionally installed increases security both inside and outside of your commercial building. Safety films can hold shattered glass in place, providing an extra level of protection from threats like burglary attempts, vandalism, and natural disasters. Solar control films can also significantly reduce energy costs, provide increased privacy during the daytime, improve visibility— especially for computer monitors and TVs, and provide significant fade protection for office furniture and decor. All around, they create a more comfortable environment for employees, visitors, and tenants.
