There are many reasons that managers and owners of commercial properties, stores, restaurants, and office buildings choose to tint the windows of their facility. Often, these buildings have large and/or multiple windows that allow the sun’s UV rays to enter. A high-quality window tint film can block up to 85% of the sun’s heat, making your facility more comfortable and saving you money in energy costs over time.
If you have ever sat in a restaurant of office with the sun shining on your face, you know how uncomfortable it can be. You may not only start to feel overheated, but the glare can make it difficult to see or concentrate. Even with the blinds pulled, you can often feel the heat of the sun or still be bothered by the glare as the sun peeks through the slats of the blinds.
Window tinting not only blocks the heat of the sun, it can reduce the glare by up to 95%. It blocks a significant amount of UV rays, heat, and glare to make the environment of your commercial property more comfortable and appealing to your visitors, customers, and employees. With tinted windows, the sunlight is filtered and appears much softer and the temperature of your facility stays more regulated.
By keeping the temperature of your commercial property balanced, you are able to maintain a constant temperature in your building. This helps to reduce energy and operating costs, especially with the extreme temperatures of winter and summer. With the rising energy costs that we have seen the past few years, your investment in commercial window tint should pay off in no time.
Prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays is not only damaging to our skin, it can fade or discolor furniture, flooring, merchandise, equipment and other important items inside of your building. Damaged merchandise cannot be sold, resulting in a loss of sales for your business. Protect your investments with window tinting that can block the sun’s harmful rays while preventing your important items from being damaged or ruined.
Window tinting can also provide privacy and security for your workers. Your windows can be tinted so that people passing by cannot see into your building. This helps your workers feel more protected and less like they are working in a fishbowl or on display. While your employees can see out, nobody else will be able to see in.
Another benefit to window tinting is that if your window should happen to break or shatter due to a robbery attempt or an accident, the tinting film helps to hold the glass together so that it does not explode all over. In the event of a window break, your visitors and employees will be much safer than with a window that has no tint.
There is a science to applying window tint properly. You should enlist the help of a qualified window tint specialist to ensure that the film is applied correctly. It needs to be precisely cut and installed so that it looks seamless and appears to be part of the original window. If you notice air bubbles or uneven lines, you know that it has been applied incorrectly.
