Window Film History:  
Window film was originally developed in flat glass application in the 1960’s. Its purpose was to help control a building’s internal temperature by reflecting solar light away from the window while maintaining acceptable vision through the glass. It also happened to help with safety in the event that a glass window broke during extreme weather or a home/office break-in. Since then, uses for residential and commercial window film and window tint have increased. There are metalized reflective films, dyed color films, ceramic films which contain no metal or dye and high VLT (visual light transmission) films which are considered the most efficient window films on the market currently. The use of any and all window films can add significant value to an office or home.

As window film production continued to develop and improve, decorative film with features such as dyed color and texture were introduced for architectural design purposes. Decorative film comes in a wide variety of colors and textures such as black, gold, bronze, gray or frosted. There is also a metalized reflective type of film that acts like a mirror on the exterior for complete privacy indoors. Privacy film has become a popular alternative to blinds and shades as decorative window treatment.

Since the energy crisis in the 1970’s, the most popular use of window film is still to reduce utility bills. Film does this through heat retention from within a building in winter and heat deflection from the sun during summer. Throughout the years, film has transformed from one that simply blocks light and heat and darkens the window like a shade or blinds. Window film is now made up of materials that still allow the visible light spectrum in so your office or home still appear bright and natural. What is kept out are the damaging and hot infrared and UV lights.

Although there are DIY films available, professional installation of window film is the preferred method because of the precision needed to apply film so that it is effective and aesthetically pleasing.
