Window Tinting: How does it work?

There are a number of reasons why tinting the windows of your home, business or vehicle is a good idea. Whether it’s to provide security and privacy, reduce sun damage or saving on energy costs, window tinting can provide you with a host of benefits. But what exactly is window tinting, and how does it work?

What is window tinting?

Also known as window film, window tint is a thin layer of polyester film that is applied to a window pane. These can be the windows on a house, commercial property or a vehicle, and the tint can be altered with additives, treatments or colours before being applied to either the interior or exterior of the window.

Window tinting has many uses and can come in a lot of different styles: frosted film can be used to add a certain level of privacy, while black-out tinting can be useful in reducing the harmful effects of UV rays. For vehicles, window tinting can be used to cool down the interior or provide heat in the winter.

How does window tinting work?

Window tinting can be a simple and relatively inexpensive process, so with the right instructions you may be able to do it yourself. However, we offer a professional window tinting service, expertly installing window tints using the very best film on the market.

Using a particular type of polyester-based film, this is then applied to the inside or outside of the window. This film is usually available in a number of different shades and are made to measure, so you can find the perfect choice for your window before beginning the process. Additionally, certain additives or treatments are available that can alter the look and function of the film.

After measuring your windows, the film is cut perfectly before being applied. If installed correctly, the film will last for a number of years before needing to be replaced.
