Window Shade or Window Film?

Are you choosing between installing window film or window shades in your home or office? This can be a difficult task. Although it’s mainly personal preference, here are a few key factors to help you make an informed decision. Consider the following:

UV Protection

Natural light is enjoyable but UV rays can be damaging to you and your valuables. UV rays can cause various skin conditions, eye problems, and fading of floors and furniture. Some window shades may not block UV rays, based on the type of material. On the other hand, window films block up to 99.9% of UV rays, therefore you are able to safely enjoy natural light in your home or business.

Solar Heat Rejection

Light colored shades or closed shades can aid in reducing heat, however in states where it’s warm most of the year shades do very little to reduce heat. Darker shades are actually known to absorb solar heat and spread it throughout the room. Window films actually reject most sunlight before it enters your home or business and absorbs the remaining amounts. Therefore, depending on the type of film it can block up to 77% of solar heat.

Glare Reduction

Blocking glare with shades darkens your space which causes you to keep your lights on leading to an increase in energy and costs. Window film reduces glare and allows you to enjoy natural lighting.

The Importance of Blocking UV Rays

When we think of summer, we think of fun in the sun but most don’t consider the amount of damage the sun can cause. Ultraviolet rays, also known as UV rays cause damage to your skin, your eyes, and your immune system. Blocking these rays in your home or business can possibly save your life.

Some effects of UV exposure are mild while others can be life threatening. Sunburn is a mild case, which causes redness of the skin, which is due to increased blood flow in the skin. High doses of UV exposure may cause pain, blistering, and skin peeling. More serious effects to the skin include skin cancer. Research shows that most people develop skin cancer from harmful UV rays. It is very important to protect your skin, and even more important to protect the skin of children. Skin cancer is extremely rare in children; however the amount of exposure they receive during childhood causes an increased risk, as they become adults.

Recent studies show that UV rays cause serious eye conditions such as cataracts, if proper eye protection is not worn. Protection is especially useful in the summer, as UV levels are up to three times higher. It is estimated that 3.2 million people go blind each year due to UV exposure.

These rays can also weaken your immune system, which is your body’s defense against disease. The rays stop your body’s ability to fight off bacteria and greatly increases your risk of infection.

All the window films at Window Tint LA block 99.9% of these harmful UV rays. Applying window film to your windows will definitely assist you in protecting yourself against these life-threatening conditions. We have a wide variety of films, some are virtually clear so that the appearance of your home or business will not change.

How to Stop Turf Burning and Discoloration

Most states are experiencing a water shortage. Many residents are being asked to reduce their water consumption. More often than not, residents are turning towards artificial grass and flowers. Artificial grass, also known as turf dramatically reduces the amount of water used to maintain a beautiful landscaped yard.

Turf is much easier to maintain. There is no need to water it, mow it, or fertilize it. The only possible downfall, is high temperatures can potentially melt the turf. If this is a problem you are experiencing, Window Tint LA has the solution for you!

We offer a couple of options to solve this problem:

The first is a matte frost and is perfect in situations where visibility is not important. This film is applied to the exterior of the window and provides total privacy both looking in and out. Although this is a privacy film, it still allows 73% of natural light into your space and provides 99.9% UV protection.

The second option is our exclusive film, which is also our most popular, a screen film. This film is perforated so it is similar to looking in and out of a bug screen. The screen film is also applied to the exterior, however it provides visibility both in and out of the window. The film is offered in clear, white, and silver, which is the most common.

Adding turf guard window film to your windows that face your turf will prevent burning and discoloration. Without the window film, the reflection from energy efficient windows can magnify the sun, which causes your turf to melt and burn. The homeowners of this home, decided to install our silver perforated screen.

If you need to protect your turf, give Window Tint LA a call. We are open 7 days a week and are ready to assist you. We offer completely free consultations. Call 310-935-1748 to schedule your consultation today! We also install various other types of window films. No job is too big or small. Call us today!

Anti-Graffiti Window Film to Protect Against Vandalism

Far too many business owners fall victim to vandalism. They know the pain and frustration of finding graffiti on their property. Not only does graffiti affect the business aesthetics but it’s also expensive damage to mitigate. Often a business is forced to bear the brunt of replacing glass windows marred by vandalism, and this undue expense can costs many thousands of dollars.

Anti-graffiti window film is a great way to prevent glass from being damaged. Anti-graffiti film will protect all types of glass against etching, gouges, scratches, acid marking, and spray paint. The cost of anti-graffiti film is but a small fraction of the costs associated with replacing the actual glass; it is much easier and far less expensive to replace sheets of window film than it is to replace your glass windows, mirrors, or doors every time they are damaged.

For the following project, our customer wanted to protect his new establishment against potential vandalism. We applied a 6mm anti-graffiti film to all of the exterior windows. The film acts as a “sacrificial” layer; in an event of vandalism or other damage, the glass panes themselves will not be damaged, all that would need to be replaced is the window film.

We provide completely free window tint and window film consultations, so contact us today without incurring a bit of obligation. We will bring you samples of the different films we offer, measure the glass at your property to make accurate cost estimates, and will gladly answer any questions that you may have.

To schedule your free consultation please give us a ring at 310-935-1748.
