About Window Tinting

What is Window tinting and how does it work?

Window tinting is a polyester film that is applied to the inside or outside of glass. To give it its special properties the polyester is coated with various metals and chemicals which are then protected from the elements by extra layers of protective plastic.

There are many reasons why window tinting is beneficial… to prevent glare, reflect solar energy, give privacy, reduce graffiti and vandalism or to improve glass safety.

Window film works on two principles –

  • to reflect the sun’s light and heat back outside, and
  • to absorb the light and heat.

There are two types of window tint technology – non-reflective or dyed films (these films primarily absorb solar energy), and reflective or metalised films (these absorb as well as reflect solar energy). Hybrid films combine layers of both technology to be non-reflective AND reflect the sun’s energy.

The diagram below explains how window tint is more effective than plain glass at keeping the sun’s energy from entering your home, office or vehicle.

Architectural & Eco Solutions

Flat Glass

The modern trend for large glassed areas in homes and commercial buildings looks great, but can result in excessive heat build-up inside requiring powerful, power-hungry air conditioners to restore comfort. High light levels also lead to glare making it difficult to view TV and computer screens. Fitting window tinting film to the inside or outside of your windows is a very effective way to combat these issues and reduce the cost of heating and cooling your property.

The sun’s energy also causes fading of curtains and carpets reducing their life and appearance. Solabloc SA’s extensive range of window films block most of the damaging UV that affects your people and furnishings. With window film you enhance your personal protection, your living environment and save the planet too!

Residential

Reasons to Protect your Home:

As well as adding style and privacy to you home without sacrificing your view, window tinting your home has the following features & benefits:

  • Property protection – protects furnishings, fabrics, carpet, and wood against fading and damage from the sun’s rays.
  • Personal protection – filters out cancer causing UV.
  • Safety - helps hold together glass in the event of forced entry, accidents or natural disasters.
  • Comfort - filters out heat in summer and insulates against winter heat loss making your heating and cooling systems more effectively.
  • Money saving – conserving energy saves on heating and cooling bills!

Commercial Applications

In addition to the above benefits, commercial and industrial applications include:

  • UV blocking films to protect stock from fading and perishing due to sunlight.
  • UV blocking to protect employees who are exposed to sunlight through windows. Normal clear glass does not provide any form of UV protection.
  • Smash and grab protection for front windows.
  • Creates comfortable working environments by reducing glare on computer screens and the amount of heat entering the building.
  • Saves money by reducing heating and cooling costs and staff absenteeism in extreme weather.
  • Enhances overall look of an office or retail location.
  • Protects vulnerable windows from graffiti damage through scratching and paint/chemical attack– saving you time and money and insurance premiums.
