1.   I am trying to stop heat and glare what is the best film?
 

Like Automotive films a metallic film will do the best from a heat perspective and a darker the film will again stop the most heat and glare.

  
2.   I want the best heat and glare performance however don’t want the “mirror” external appearance?
 

It has always generally been a compromise of having the best performance meaning more metal content and avoiding the “mirror” look which is a direct result of adding more metal. The compromise is a hybrid metal/dyed film having less metal content and more color which dulls the mirror look and “back reflection” problems which arise when turning the lights on inside at night and looking at a highly reflective finish.

  
3.   Will Reflective Window tinting give me privacy of a night time?
 

During night time hours’ people will be able to see into your windows, you will still have to use your drapes or curtains to gain privacy.

By applying the right window tinting, people will find it very difficult to see in your windows during the day, whilst still giving you the ability to look out.

  
4.   Does Window Tinting Peel and Bubble?
 

We have many films that come with a Lifetime Manufacturers Guarantee. There are some other cheaper films on the market sold by other businesses that offer very limited or no guarantees at all. You may have these sort of problems with these types of films. Resulting in the additional costs of having to pay for the inferior tinting to be removed and the cost of paying for new tinting that should have been purchased and installed the first time.  

  
5.   Will Window Tinting Cut out too much light?
 

We have many films that significantly reduce heat and the harmful effects of ultra violet light whilst still letting a significant amount of light through the glass. Many people are surprised to learn that there are many clear films that can perform these functions.

  
6.   Will Reflective Window tinting give me privacy of a night time?
 

During night time hours’ people will be able to see into your windows, you will still have to use your drapes or curtains to gain privacy.

By applying the right window tinting, people will find it very difficult to see in your windows during the day, whilst still giving you the ability to look out.

  
7.   Will tinting my windows make my home, office or car cooler?
 

We have window tinting films that will significantly reduce the temperature of your home, office or car. In the case of your home or office a flow on effect is electricity savings through reduced cooling costs. In the case of your car lower fuel consumption during the summer months as you don’t need to run the car a.c as high.     

  
8.   Does window tinting film help with fading?
 

Many of our films have U.V(Ultra Violet Light) ratings that will block 99% of U.V light.

  
9.   Will window tint stop people looking in my windows?
 

Yes, by applying the right window tinting, people will find it very difficult to see in your windows during the day, whilst still giving you the ability to look out.

During night time hours’ people will be able to see into your windows, you will still have to use your drapes, blinds or curtains to gain privacy.

  
10.   Do you have a specific film for privacy?
 

We have many films that make normal windows/panels act like privacy glass. Such as frosted, decorative and architectural films.

  
11.   How do I clean my tinted windows?
 
  • Do not clean your windows for at least two weeks after the tinting film has been installed.
  • Always use a soft, clean cloth for the inside of the windows only. Never use abrasive cloths or abrasive cleaning pads.
  • Never use a cleaner that is not formulated for tinted windows.
  • Never clean film with abrasive cleaning chemicals.
  • Never clean with chemicals like ammonia.
  • Never attach adhesives or suction cups to the film as these may also damage the tinting film when they are removed.
