Ceramic tinting is a premium service that our company offers for homeowners. An ultra-thin film, covered with microscopic nano ceramic particles, is being applied to the windows. Invisible to the naked eye, it provides the ultimate protection from the sun: blocks 99% of UV and UVB rays, 80% of infrared light, and up to 59% of heat. This is the top window tint technology on the market today. By choosing it, you’re choosing the real protection from the sun damage for your family.
Even if your house stands in direct sunlight, with windows tinted with ceramic coating, it remains cool and comfortable. Your interior doesn’t fade, and the sun glare and heat don’t interfere with your daily life — you can watch TV in the daytime and let your kids play in the living room at the peak of sunny hours. But what is more important — you know, that the health of your close ones is protected.

How does ceramic window tint work?
Nano ceramic particles that cover the surface of the film act like an invisible shield that rejects infrared heat and UV rays. As opposed to metallic or dyed window tint, this film is absolutely transparent. It doesn’t interfere with the visual transmittance of natural light, making the interior darker. And, it also doesn’t produce any electronic signal interference.
By reducing the exposure of your interior to heat, glare, and UV light, ceramic tint offers the ultimate protection and reduces the risk of skin cancer.
What will increase the benefits of ceramic window tinting?
As perfect as ceramic window films sound, they cannot always be the ultimate solution for heat and UV rejection. To get the perfect results, you must have a well-insulated house. The more modern it is — the better. Gaps in the walls, old materials, thin walls, old tint roof — all of these and many other factors would stand in the way of the wonderful performance of ceramic window tint. If the walls and the roof of your house get overheated during the day, none of the films could help.
Sounds like your case? Consider making these 6 steps that will increase the heat resistance of your house:
- Insulate the roof (there is a technology called the “Cool roof”, check it out)
- Insulate the walls of your house
- Install water sprayers on the perimeter of the roof
- Design the proper shading around your house
- Check if your air conditioning is working properly
- Install extra fans to cool the rooms down.
Best brands of ceramic window tint
There are many brands that use nano ceramic technology, but we definitely know that we can trust only a few of them. Window tinting, as simple as it sounds, is a super delicate job and it is connected with the protection of our clients’ wellbeing. Incorrectly chosen and installed window film can be dangerous: by making the space visually darker, it won’t block UV rays and radiation as needed, literally becoming a risk factor for your health.
