Window Tinting For Heat Reduction

For Home & Business

  • Solar window tint film installations are the ideal choice to reduce excessive heat, glare, UV damage to furniture and flooring and also to curb high energy costs due to air conditioner usage. Solar film reduces energy loss by up to 40% and in turn reduces your monthly energy bills by up to 30%. During the Summer months temperatures can be reduced by up to 15 degrees so if you need to increase your comfort  levels inside your home or office then installing solar film is the right choice for you. 

     

     

  • Window Tint Film vs Alternatives
    Compared to other lower cost investments that reduce UV exposure such as curtains, blinds and awnings, our solar films do not create an unwanted dark environment or block your view of the outside world. The window films are available in a variety of shades and reflectivity, allowing occupants of a home or office to enjoy natural light without the unwanted UV, heat and glare.

Window Tinting vs Window Frosting.

If you are looking to keep out the heat then a tint film application is the answer. Heat reflective window film reduces the amount of Solar Energy entering a room by absorbing between 28% & 47% of the heat depending on the solar window film type, and this is where the heat inside a room is greatly reduced, especially in the hot summer months. Residential window tint film blocks up to 99% of the Sun’s UV rays while reducing energy costs at the same time by means of reducing air conditioner running times.

 

With window tint film applications there are also some privacy options but they are limited. The standard black & grey tint films offer partial privacy during the day but one can still see in depending on the amount of light outside and the intensity of the UV window film. Reflective window film offers day time privacy but none at night, especially with the lights on inside, so at night time blinds or curtains would still need to be drawn for total privacy. Being a reflective product, these solar window films outperform all other tint films when it comes to heat rejection to deliver fast payback and long-term energy savings. One Way Films for privacy (Mirror Tint) are light dependent & are intended for use on windows which are exposed to outside light so when using these films indoors there needs to be enough light created inside (interrogation rooms) to achieve the privacy needed on the correct side of the film.

Window Tinting For Heat Reduction

Glass and Film Facts

Shatterproof, Laminated & Safety Glass Film Restrictions:

  • These glass panes expand and contract with heat. Dense colour solar window film causes thermal stress to the glass which can cause the glass to crack if the correct film is not installed on a specific glass type. If Laminated or Safety glass windows are not exposed to sun then it will be acceptible to use any colour film, if  the glass is exposed for 2-3 hours of morning sun only then it would be acceptible to use any colour films BUT if the glass is exposed to the sun from +- 11h00 until the  evening then a dense window tint film could cause the glass to crack. The only window film one can safely use on these windows with a lot of sun exposure are a Non-reflective 35% or a Silver 15% reflective or higher.

Toughened, Temper Shield, Armor Plate or Float Glass:

  • Any film of choice can be used on these glass types.  Window tint films are ideal for keeping out harmful U.V. rays and in the process protecting any blinds or furniture that may be exposed to the sun during the day from fading.

Factory Tinted Glass:

  • See FAQ for film to glass recommendations.

Window Frosting For Privacy

For Home

  • Window frosting film allows for customised privacy with a number of attractive patterns whether it be on windows, entrance hall glass doors, kitchen cupboards with glass, bathroom windows or shower enclosures, so if you need more privacy without sacrificing the natural light entering  your room then let us install a beautiful Sandblast vinyl design onto your windows.

 

  • Sandblast vinyl installations are also common on sliding doors to prevent people from walking into the glass panes. In South Africa it has been reported that glass related accidents are responsible for 15 000 injuries yearly. Of all fatal injuries occurring in homes, half of them involve children between 5 and 14, so why not consider some DIY Window Frosting options for your glass panes for some added safety.

 

  • Frosted window films are an excellent low maintenance alternative to curtains and blinds as they provide much needed privacy on glass windows and doors while still allowing 90% natural light through. If you want to change the look of your space or if you are looking to add more privacy in certain areas then this is a cost effective solution for you.

Window Frosting vs Window Tinting.


If you are looking to achieve total privacy day and night from both sides of the glass then look no further than a window frosting film installation. Frosted window films, also known as sandblast vinyl, offer *100% privacy day and night even from the outside with the lights on inside a room at night, so no need to have curtains or blinds drawn for total privacy. Window frosting film is translucent and because of this it still allows up to 90% of natural light in during the day. *There is an exception and that is security gates right up against the glass which still show through because of the translucent properties of the film but from 0.5 metres away privacy is achieved and at 2m total privacy.

Typical uses for total privacy would be for frosted bathroom windows, meeting rooms and areas where sensitive business information is displayed in the workplace. If total privacy is not essential then a frosted glass design is the answer which would allow one to see partially to the outside if needed which would offer partial privacy, this can include company logos on windows, frosted sliding door strips or even an abstract design if needed. Sandblast vinyl blocks up to 95% of the Sun's UV rays which slows the fading process of furniture and curtains which are exposed to the sun, but it does not stop as much heat as tinting does from entering a room.

Conventional sandblast is achieved by removing a layer of the glass surface and the result is weakened glass. Sandblast vinyl eliminates this problem but achieves the same elegant look and also protects the glass from shattering in the event of any breakage PLUS it is removable should a design want to be changed or removed from rented office spaces.
