Will Clear Film Block out Heat and Glare?

Solar window films have really improved the last few years. Today’s films do not rely on dye to block out the sun. Instead, they use what is called “spectrally selective technology” to identify heat and UV rays.

When the sunlight hits the film, the harmful rays that cause damage to your skin and interiors are bounced back away. However, the visible light we see and want in our homes is allowed to pass through the film without interruption. Therefore, yes, clear energy efficient window tint provides the same heat and glare blocking benefits as clear film.

Is Window Film Durable?

By Blog No Comments

One of the most common questions we get here at Edmond Window Film is how long window film will last, how long will it stay on the windows? In other words, is it durable? This is an important question, especially when you are seeking a return on your investment.

Window film is an extremely durable product. Most window film will last at least 10 years and most likely, it will last between 15-20 years.

A few factors that influence the life of Window Film:

Location of the film: Window film works great against extreme sun exposure for many years. However, customers need to understand that in hotter climates, like Oklahoma in the summer, on windows facing east or west, the film will wear down quicker. These particular windows on your Edmond home or business will likely need film replacement faster than other windows. Remember, the windows that need film, are the exact ones that get the most sun and therefore ones that need the film the most.

Quality of the Film: When it comes to solar window films, polyester films are very cost effective and work very well. The downfall of these films is that they are not nearly as resistant to scratches and won’t last as long. At Edmond Window Film, we really encourage customers to go with a ceramic solar window film because of the high quality and durability. They are a little more expensive but are resistant to scratches, damage and will last much longer.

The Skill of the Installer: It is very important to have a trained film installer. When you hire a true professional from Edmond Window Film, you ensure the correct adhesion and flawless look. Please, you will get all the warranties offered from our company as well as the film manufacturer.

Window Tinting for UV Protection

By Blog No Comments

sun protection1I am starting to experience the winter blues or winter blahs. Whatever you want to call it, I am ready for spring, summer and SUN! With the warmer temperatures and more exposure to the sun with the new seasons approaching, you probably put on sunscreen when you spend the day outside. However, how often do you protect yourself from sun exposure when you are hanging out inside your house?

There is more and more evidence showing it is still possible to be exposed to even low-level UV rays when you are inside your home or office through a window. This may not seem like a big deal to you but over time, damage can accumulate quickly and can have harmful health issues for you.

There have been several studies that found people who spend a lot of time in their cars or by windows with no protection are more likely to develop skin cancer on the side of their face or body that is exposed.
