Window Tinting


UK: Window Tinting: Window Tinting Manufacturers & Suppliers



Window tinting film can be applied to any glass window, to reduce glare and fading, and to reduce energy costs. Glare and fading is reduced by window tinting films which will block up to 99% of ultra violet light. Window tinting film is mainly used to reduce energy costs in hot climates, where reduction in infra red transmissions, and thus in solar gain, can reduce the costs of air conditioning. A danger of applying a window film with too dark a tint is that it may cause occupants to use more electric lighting, thus increasing energy consumption in winter. Leading UK suppliers of window tinting film are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
