Read on to find out all about the different types of window films and what unique benefits they can provide your home or business.
Types of Window Film Offered in Santa Monica
Security window film
Security window film, especially the 3M window film that we use, is an affordable way to improve the safety and security of your property’s windows.
Security window film consists of many layers of a poly-based plastic coating that gets applied directly to existing glass surfaces, including windows and doors. It can be applied either on the inside, the outside, or both sides.
While it’s not built to prevent glass from breaking, this security film does reinforce windows and provides a basic level of protection against forced entry and burglary, smash-and-grab theft, inclement weather, vandalism, and accidents.
When a window protected by security film gets impacted by something hard enough to break, the film holds the broken glass in place, preventing sharp, jagged shards from flying inwards and potentially injuring someone nearby.
Even though security window film doesn’t prevent glass from breaking, it makes it harder to break through, thus causing a delay to forced entry that can help deter burglary or smash-and-grab theft.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective way to add some basic glass protection to your Santa Monica business or residential property, but don’t have the budget for a polycarbonate or glass-clad polycarbonate retrofit, security window film is an option.
But, if you require a higher level of security, we highly recommend a Riot Glass polycarbonate or glass-clad polycarbonate security glazing retrofit, which we also do.
Window tinting films
Window tinting films come in a nearly endless array of colors and finishes, from classic gray-tinted films to color-shifting and reflective films.
These window films can help you change the appearance of your property, give an old building a contemporary facelift, or add privacy.
For example, if you own an older office building with outdated windows, we can apply tinted, colored, or reflective window films as part of a facade re-imaging procedure to bring your property up to par with more modern buildings in the area.
Sometimes all it takes is the reflection of the surrounding buildings, landscape, and sky in freshly applied mirrored window film to give an old property a new lease on life!
Or, if you want to increase daytime privacy in your property’s ground floor rooms, we might use reflective window film to create a two-way mirror effect when the light outside is brighter than the light inside.
There are also completely opaque window films available for when maximum discretion is required.
Energy-efficient window films
Energy-efficient window films, more specifically called low-emissivity (low-e) window films, are an excellent way to reduce your reliance on AC and cut down on utility costs.
Low-e window films are designed to supercharge the performance of your existing glass by essentially adding an extra pane of glass to your windows and glass doors.
In other words, this type of window film can convert the performance of a single-pane window into that of a double-pane window, or make a double-pane window work like a triple-pane window.
Low-e window film drastically reduces solar heat gain, or the amount of heat from the sun that passes through your building’s windows, thereby making it easier to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures and reducing the need to run the AC to stay cool.
For large homes and commercial facilities, this can translate into very drastic energy savings.
In fact, installing energy-efficient window film is an investment that typically ends up paying for itself in just a few years (or as little as one year in some cases) because of how much money it can save you on your monthly utility bills.
Sun control window film
Sun control window film, such as the 3M Prestige Series film we offer, is another type of high-performance window film that can be used to improve indoor comfort.
This type of window film blocks approximately 97% of the sun’s infrared light, which we feel as heat, and 99.9% of the sun’s harmful UV rays that cause furnishings to fade and that can cause skin damage.
Sun control window film is also very effective at reducing glare, while allowing you to continue receiving the benefits of natural light and enjoy full visibility through your windows.
These characteristics contribute to better energy efficiency, as well as overall more comfortable interior conditions, making rooms with a lot of windows more pleasant to work, shop, or otherwise be in.
Decorative window films
Decorative window films are a great way to add graphics, like logos or decorative designs, to both interior and exterior glass surfaces.
For instance, we often apply graphics using frosted window film to glass doors and walls of areas like conference and reception rooms.
This allows you to spice up the interior or exterior design of your property, add branding or advertising, and increase privacy in certain areas.
Decorative window film designs can be as simple or as complex as you want, and are available in transparent, frosted, opaque, double-sided, and translucent prints.
