Window film is not a newcomer to retailers’ shelves but has been receiving plenty of attention of late. In the past, it was difficult to adhere properly to the window, leaving behind unattractive and visible creases that interfered with visibility. Windows are openings to the world, enabling onlookers to enjoy beautiful views if they are sparkling clean and clear. Today’s window film is easier to apply, and with all the technological advances in the industry, offers many benefits to residences and businesses, as below.
1. Providing UV Ray Protection and Temperature Consistency
High-quality window films can immensely improve the space in which they are installed. With films in place, fading of furnishings is no longer an issue, nor are any hot spots. These added layers protect the indoors. Depending upon the quality of film, some may almost completely block out harmful UV rays to protect floor coverings and furnishings from excessive fading. Temperature consistency from room to room is another benefit that increases comfort in the overall space, thanks to the film’s ability to control and filter sunlight penetration. Simultaneously, it provides impressive energy savings during the hot summer months, as cooling systems will work less.

3. Enhanced Privacy
Businesses can also benefit from increased privacy when installing window films, but never having to sacrifice natural light from entering the space. Employees can enjoy greater comfort, without having to close their blinds, so they can still catch the occasional glimpse of the outdoors and not have to feel claustrophobic while at work.

4. Increased Security
Window films make it more difficult for thieves to break into a business, thereby enhancing security. Security also encompasses confidential information that could be compromised given today’s camera technology in unprotected work spaces. One never knows who is observing or spying from a distance, and how that could impact the future of the company.
Vandalism is another problem faced by many companies adding to their annual overhead expenses. Window films protect against graffiti, leaving the expensive windows untouched and only requiring the film to be replaced. The films are also capable of holding together broken panes and avoid shattering and glass shards from endangering employees and passersby, as in the unfortunate event of a bomb blast.

5. Cosmetic Appeal
Etched glass can cost a small fortune, depending on the size of such a project, but window films allow for attractive decor for a fraction of the cost. Decorative films enhance privacy and add style to a space effectively and efficiently, without blocking out natural flowing light from entering.
Window films offer energy savings with cooling systems but also with regards to artificial lighting usage. As natural light increases indoors, employees rely less on artificial light. Studies have shown that employees can be more productive when working by daylight rather than artificial light. Business owners can choose from either tinted sun control or clear safety films depending on their individual needs.
