What is a heat reflective window tint?

A heat reflective window tint is a special kind of film that provides the optimal level of the sun’s heat blockage, protecting the interior from harmful UV rays, radiation, and glare. Its mirror-like coating prevents unwanted attention from the outside, giving your home a sufficient level of privacy. These tints can be installed on your windows, doors, or any other glass surfaces.

Like any other window film, a heat reduction one has to be produced by reliable manufacturers. Only in this case, it retains its protective properties that always have solid warranties from the brands. An unknown product definitely wouldn’t have up to 99% UV rays blockage, up to 79% protection from the sun’s heat, up to 80% of glare as reputable brands do.

  • Any space with large or panoramic windows
  • Well insulated house with normal (or even smaller) windows
  • Kitchen, living room, bedrooms, children’s rooms, bathrooms

So, the satisfying results are not only in the heat protection itself but in addition to a great level of comfort to your property.
