Why is Window Tinting becoming so popular? The Facts and the Fictions

Home, office and car window tinting have now become so favoured and even looks as if it will become more so as an increasing amount of windows are being tinted up. So, in order to clear away the wheat from the chaff, let’s have a little look at what the facts of the matter are out there regarding window tinting:

Will it be Somewhat Darker on the Inside?

The windows won’t block any light or visibility from any direction, but UV rays will be having a hard time be blocked out by an unbelievable 99%! Window tint film won’t make your house dark and after installation, you’ll be able to see out, but nosey neighbours will no longer be able to see in!

Is There a Boost in Safety & Security?

Any accidents, acts of God and human threats can rapidly transform any pane of glass into life threatening dangerous shards. A thicker type of protective glass safety film is available and offers an extra level of protection in case of any breakage, and will enhance your security at home from intruders.

Is it harder to Clean than Glass?

All customers are asked not to clean the window film for the first 30 days after installation. This is what is known as the “drying period,” but after that time period, just simply clean the windows like before. However, don’t use any harsh liquids like ammonia or vinegar as they may happen to harm the film, so use only soft cloths and nothing abrasive.

Does Window Tint Film Bubble or Fade?

Nope, not at all. Some people are concerned about top quality window tint film in Adelaide, because they’ve seen rough self-fittings done with low grade film in buildings or cars with those awful looking air bubbles. But the fact is that the finest quality film utilises stable dyes and/or permanent layers of metal that will never degrade.

Will House Plants Suffer?

This depends on the plant, and naturally certainly not in all cases. Oddly enough, some plants will thrive after window tinting has been fitted, especially dark green houseplants due to the increase in moisture content in the air. A few flowering plants may at first encounter a short period of shock, but will pick up after a few days. Try moving the plants to a somewhat darker area away from windows for a day or two and see if it affects them.

Are All Window Tinting Films the Same? 

The quality of window tint film these days is mostly top notch in solar protection and not only will your home, car and office windows look great, but you will also be making savings on power bills, because window tinting film helps to boost the efficiency of air conditioning, which means that you can turn it down.

Do yourself a favour, get tinted up and you’ll soon know why it’s become so popular!
