Solar Window Film (synonymous with Window Tinting) is always transparent and can be almost undetectable in color to extremely dark, like the back of most limousines. It is usually installed to the interior side of your windows, although there are some films engineered to be used for exterior applications. Solar Window Film is best utilized for fade protection, glare reduction, daytime privacy tinting and solar heat control. A thicker (along with aggressive adhesion) type of solar film can be applied for extra security protection and even blast safety purposes called 'Safety Window Film'. Safety Films are offered in both clear and tinted versions.
Depending on the type of project (Commercial/Residential) will help determine the class of Solar Film we recommend. As an example, for residential use, a higher product class is usually required. Generally our Professional and/or Premium grade solar window film products are preferred here. These higher grade products add features like lower interior reflection for better nighttime viewing. Or for those discerning customers that require maximum light transmission along with impressive solar heat reduction you will most likely be eying one of our Premium line of products.
