Order Office Window Tinting and Reduce Heat, Glare & Energy Bills

Tinted commercial window film is a thin layer of adhesive-backed material that’s installed on an office building to change the color of the windows and filter UV light. While large sliding doors and windows create a light, bright office environment, they can also result in dramatic temperature increases and huge cooling bills in the summer. A great solution is to install either transparent or tinted window films.

Commercial window films come in many different colors and transparencies depending on the amount of light you want to filter out. It doesn’t all have to be all about function either, decorative window films help modernize a drab-looking office building bringing it into the 21st century. Mirror window tints can also offer privacy to those working inside an exposed building.

If the employees in your office space are struggling with glare and overheating in the afternoon, it’s time to install commercial window film. Book installation today with Tinting Chicago at 773-455-0467 or 312-212-0493.

Benefits of commercial window film

Blocks heat

If you live in a sunny climate, offices with large sliding doors and windows inevitably heat up after midday. This can cause physical discomfort for staff and reduce productivity. Window tinting helps regulate the temperature of an office, keeping it cooler in the hot summer months.

Filters harmful UV light

Surprising to some, harmful UV light can still pass through glass. If your desk is positioned right next to an office window, the chances are you’re being exposed to harmful UV rays in the afternoon.  Window tinting helps block UV light reducing your chances of developing skin cancer.

Reduces glare

Working on a screen with the glare of the midday sun is irritating and unproductive. Window tinting reduces glare significantly while only partially blocking out the bright light you need.

Reduces cooling bills

Offices in particularly sunny locations generate high cooling bills during the summer months. Window tinting lowers the temperature in offices, reduces the need for air conditioning which saves the employer money and is kinder to the environment.

Modernizes exterior

Window tint can transform your business both inside and out.  If your office building needs an upgrade, window tinting is an affordable way to add a bit of color and style.

Provides privacy

With tinted film, it’s possible to see out of a window but it’s not always possible to see in.  If your office is overlooked or located in a busy location with plenty of nosy, passing traffic, tinted window film provides privacy without blocking out the much-wanted light.

Enhances security

So much theft is opportunistic meaning a potential thief wasn’t intending to steal anything until saw it.  Tinted window film makes it impossible for anybody on the outside to see in, enhancing security and cutting down the chances for opportunistic theft.

Retain the view

If you enjoy spectacular views from your office building, why cover them up with blinds or curtains? Install tinted window films and enjoy the uninterrupted views all day long.
