Types of Window Film

In this episode, Jacy and Cindy go over the different types of window film and explain the benefits of each. Window film has come a long way over the years. Today, you can buy decorative window film with different frosted designs to obscure vision for privacy and security. If you want some privacy in your office at work or for your home, this might be a good option. There is also security window film for added protection from people who are trying to break into your house or car. This type of film makes it difficult for people to hit the window and break it to gain access.

UV Blocking Automotive Window Film

Another popular option they mention is UV blocking window film. This type is popular among homeowners, automobile owners, and people who work in commercial buildings. These films come in a variety of tints–from dark to light. So if you are looking to improve the look of your car, you can pick the shade (or VLT%) that best matches your car. Keep in mind; there are window tint laws in every state. Click here see what the laws are for where you live. You’ll also help prevent your skin from skin damage and skin cancer. Sitting in the car for hours on end will have a negative effect on your skin, but it will help reduce the sun’s UV rays that cause skin cancer and also keep you feeling cool. If you’re looking to add window film to your home windows, your furniture will benefit from the reduced UV rays of the sun shining down on them. The sun will damage your furniture over time, including, carpets, sofas, couches, tables, and more. What’s even better is that you won’t need shades or blinds blocking the view to the outside.

The window film lines that we offer for superior UV blocking protection are our Phantom Series and MonoCarbon film. We have created and added our Nano Carbon Ceramic window film technology to block infrared light and make you feel cooler under the sun.

In the second half of the episode, Jacy and Cindy invite Darrell from the International Window Film Association. Darrell provided tips on window film and information on IWFA.
