How Does A Solar Film Work?

One of the best things you can do for your home or office is to invest in a reliable solar film. Not only do solar films block harmful UV rays from the sun, but they will lead to a more productive work environment.

But how do solar films work?

How do they work?

Solar films are a type of window film application designed to block UV rays that can damage your skin, eyes, and furniture. They're typically made from a polyester film or similar construct that is directly applied to glass via a strong adhesive. They can go on any window from your home to your office to your car.

The solar film works like a reflective surface that bounces back the sun's rays. This prevents the rays from entering your office -- some solar films can even block up to 99.9% of UVA radiation. Some solar films absorb rays if they're not reflective.

Why are solar rays bad?

Solar rays are a nuisance that can lower productivity in your home and workplace. At best, the temperature in your home will fluctuate and cost you money. At worst, your skin and eyes can be damaged by the light. Not only does this damage your body, but it can also lower your productivity as you work. A solar film or residential window tinting can save you money and protect your body from the sun's harmful rays. If you want to save even more money in the home, try installing a modern HVAC system with a programmable thermostat.

Where can I get one?

A good solar film should only be purchased and installed from a reliable tint shop. Whether you need commercial window tinting or residential, it's essential to install solar films correctly. This ensures you're getting the most out of your purchase. After all, 50% of UVA rays can pass through windows -- you want to keep all of them out to keep you and your family safe.
