effective protection from the Sun using window tints

Window Tinting can block up to 99% of UV rays and also reduce glare by 85%.

Australia’s glorious sunshine provides an enviable outdoor lifestyle of barbies, bathers and beach fun. However, when temperatures soar life can be made more than a little uncomfortable if excessive heat becomes trapped inside of a home, office or car. Window tinting goes a long way in keeping those scorching rays where they belong: outside.

The Benefits of Window Tinting

Insulating indoor areas from the harmful effects of UV rays is similar to applying sun block lotions to exposed areas of the body before spending extended periods outdoors. Said to block up to 99% of UV rays, window tinting can also reduce glare by 85%. The need for less air conditioning may result in energy savings of up to 31%, which not only makes the process more environmentally friendly, but could result in a window tint paying for itself. The number of daylight hours spent in an office makes office window tinting a logical undertaking. Overheated employees become stressed and irritable and are incapable of producing their best efforts whereas the pleasant temperatures provided by office window tinting results in far greater efficiency and much more considerate dispositions.

How Window Tinting is Accomplished

A tinted polymer film can be applied to specially prepared window glass. A window tint done in this way is inexpensive and an added safety benefit is said to be glass that does not shatter as easily and, if it does, its spread will be far more contained. Window tinting can also be done by spraying a tinted solution onto glass. This type of window tint is said to outlast the film method, but it requires the removal of window glass. The inconvenience factor makes it unsuitable for motor vehicles. Then there is the window tint that is within the glass. The glass manufacturing process includes the addition of a mild tint that is obviously permanent, but replacement costs in the case of accidental breakage are also far higher.

Window Tint Suitability

Weighing costs against lifespan should include whether the windows are situated in a residential or a commercial property. Window films usually have a lifespan of approximately 5 years after which they begin to bubble and disintegrate. This makes office window tinting, particularly in high-rise buildings, more suited to the permanent window tints. The mild tinting contained in the glass ensures that the natural light quality remains high, while glare on office equipment such as computers is minimised. For home use the more versatile choice could be tinted window film. Tinting only a select number of windows could avoid a room becoming too dark. Experimenting with the variety of colours available by wrapping a sample around the eyes can produce the same satisfactory result.

Conclusion

Office window tinting as well as residential or motor vehicle window tinting can promote a healthier and more comfortable means of enjoying an Australian summer. The effects of blocking out the dangerous UV rays of the sun can reduce the incidence of severe skin conditions. All it takes is a very thin, tinted film.
