Window tinting can improve the look of a car, truck, service vehicle, home, or business. But there’s a science to window tinting, how it works, and why it might improve your life.
Window Tinting Science
UV-blocking window film
Window tinting was created to prevent UV radiation. UV rays damage your eyes, cause headaches/migraines (more on that later), and fade interior furniture. Modern window tinting blocks up to 99% of the sun’s UV radiation. By reflecting them somewhat of absorbing them, it allows rays (photon particles/waves) to pass through the windows and into the structure’s inner space (s). These waves warm up the interior once they reach it. Penetrating light waves warm objects as well as the airspace they pass through. This causes a radiant head effect and exponentially warms the environment.
A car’s steering wheel or dashboard can become practically hard to touch after enough time in the sun, or why your cat or dog loves to sprawl out on warm floors warmed by sunlight through the windows. Infrared radiation is inhibited from entering your home by window tinting films’ reflective and metallic, ceramic, or carbon characteristics.
When light hits a clear window.
In some cases, The window absorbs some of it. Some of it enters via the window. Tinted window film is meant to reflect or absorb more solar radiation and minimize solar energy transmission into the interior space. So long as there is enough daylight and night visibility.
Aside from hiding the sun, window tinting can improve the quality of life in cars, houses, and enterprises.
Window tinting enhances privacy and security.
Darker or reflective window film shades also obscure passers-views into interior spaces. This promotes privacy and security. Custom window films are made to:
- Boost privacy
- Prevent vandalism or natural calamities from damaging the glass.
- Reducing glare on computers and in offices
- Office, boardroom, conference, and executive briefing center computer screens and monitors should be protected.
- Blocking the view of your company’s assets deters robbers.
- Quiet, focused places with reduced sound propagation
- These films use adhesion, fiber connection, tinting/shading, reflection, and other features to assist homeowners and business owners.
Savings on energy
Remember how less UV radiation means less solar heat gain/absorption? The science behind window tinting aims to reduce energy usage and costs. This reduces the demand for non-renewable fossil fuels, benefiting the community and the planet. Even if your home has energy-efficient windows and glazing, adding a solar-reducing film to the windows will reduce energy costs.
Note: Improper window film selection or installation can void your window manufacturer’s warranty. Always consult a certified window film installer to determine the appropriate window film for your home and install it properly.
Reduce sun-induced headaches and migraines
Sun and light sensitivity is a known migraine trigger. Installing tinted window film in their automobiles, homes, and offices has helped many people lessen their headaches and migraines, improving their overall health.
