When it comes to addressing issues like glare, heat buildup, and UV exposure, there’s nothing quite like reflective window tint with a sleek mirror finish. While some homeowners might view window tinting as an all-or-nothing solution, you can actually reap the benefits of window film without committing to tinting your entire house. The strategic use of window film can provide you with significant advantages.
Enhancing Sliding Doors
Sliding glass doors are a frequent request from our customers, and for good reason. These doors often feature the largest glass panels in our homes, allowing an abundance of natural light to stream in. Moreover, many sliding doors are constructed using uncoated single-pane glass, which happens to be the least energy-efficient type of glass.
A multitude of reasons drive our customers’ interest in tinting their sliding doors:
Security: Law enforcement professionals commonly assert that sliding glass doors serve as the most common entry point for burglars. Window film enhances security by significantly increasing the difficulty of breaking through the glass. When faced with the added resistance of window film, burglars tend to seek easier targets.
UV Protection: UV rays can wreak havoc on our skin, furnishings, artwork, and textiles. Virtually anything exposed to sunlight, even indoors, can fall victim to UV radiation. Window films effectively block over 99% of UV rays, ensuring protection from UV-related damage while you’re indoors.
Privacy: Window film can be employed to reduce one-way visibility, allowing you to see outside while preventing anyone from seeing in. If your glass doors compromise your privacy, window film offers a solution.
Glare: Glare can be incredibly frustrating, especially when you’re trying to focus on a computer or TV screen. Window film significantly reduces glare, allowing you to enjoy your screen time without distractions.
Heat Rejection: Window film can reduce interior heat gain by as much as 85%, helping to eliminate hot spots and reduce the need for air conditioning during the summer. Additionally, window film can be beneficial in the winter months, contributing to more affordable energy bills.
Applying window films to your sliding doors is a smart way to enhance the livability of your home. This simple upgrade addresses a multitude of issues and can be undertaken at any time of the year. Improving the overall performance of your doors and all the glass in your home is an excellent way to prepare for the summer months.
