Specialized window tint is an excellent addition to the building facade ensemble, notes NFI, an expert property management company, guaranteeing high resistance to mechanical damage and comfortable temperature balance in any climatic conditions.
Due to the use of the most innovative components, window film can perform tinting functions, reinforcing window glass, reflecting part of the incoming sunlight – the choice of models and technologies is truly wide.

How to apply window film
Most window film models are convenient and quick to install on most window types – the main thing is to select the correct dimensions and choose the film type that suits window structure. You even can make window film yourself – there are specialized installation kits for this. All you need is material and installation tools, which can be found in almost everyone’s garage or closet.
It is not recommended to purchase one set of material – for self-installation you may need more film, so first of all, take care of a sufficient number of layers of film. You will have to glue it in several layers. Carefully – each layer of the film must be moistened with glue and then applied to the previous one until the required thickness of the reinforcing layer is achieved. In the case of tinting, things are looking better – you will need 1-2 layers of tinting film, which most likely has a self-adhesive surface. The window film company, that particularly assembles its production with montage complects, can provide you with the best option to end all necessary setting process within several hours (exampling, Solaris 979 model).
Window film selection. How to fit window film?
Key aspects of choosing window film:
- First of all, evaluate the technical characteristics of the window film – the level of transmitted ultraviolet radiation should be minimal. Thanks to the use of advanced alloying components, the film can have an extremely wide range of applications even within one selected model. Consult with a qualified engineer for working with the facade of the building, be sure to take into account all angles of incidence of sunlight on the surface of the window, write down the sundial for each window – all this information can be extremely useful for the installation specialist, and if you are gluing the film yourself, then the details taken into account will give you years of additional functionality;
- Be sure to check the Visible Light Transmittance indicator. VLT is window film technology terminology that refers to the amount of visible sunlight transmitted. Expressed as a percentage. The higher the percentage, the less harmful ultraviolet radiation passes through the film, creating a unique and warm home atmosphere;
- What is the U-value. This indicator is responsible for the amount of heat transmitted. In temperate and cold climates, with unstable temperatures, this is a key indicator for ensuring the practical tightness of a lockable window – window film improves the window’s impermeability to both heat and excess ultraviolet rays;
- Consider changing window tint when planning the architectural design of your home. If you want to completely change the appearance of a building, then a high-density textured film may be needed. The degree of light reflection and tinting can significantly change the appearance of a building, giving it an Art Nouveau silhouette, with darkened reflections of solar light serving a variety of practical functions. The aesthetics of your home should not be compromised in any case.
