What is Window Film?
Window film is applied to the interior surface of a glass window in a home, building, or car. The film also has a scratch-resistant coating on the outer surface to protect the film. Today’s window films are high-performing, durable, and the result of continuing research and development.
There are many types of window films, including some that are clear and others that have multiple layers to protect against shattering glass; others are tinted with pigments, metals, or dyes to reduce the amount of visible light transmitted through the glass and block heat. Decorative window films can replicate the look of frosted glass or etched patterns.
Window film can reduce air conditioning costs and save on lighting costs by reducing solar heat gain while letting in natural light.
