Although window film products have been hailed as one of the greatest inventions, most people think that they are only used to protect people from sun exposure. This is no longer the case though, as there are now various forms of window tint that can protect you in various ways, some of which will be discussed below.
High quality window film products that have been correctly installed are able to help protect building occupants in the event of a bomb explosion. Although it is not a guarantee that no injuries will occur if you are in a building that has had window tint installed, it will certainly provide an additional measure of protection in that glass shards will not be able to fly all over the inside of the building. The windows will still break however, but the film will help keep all of the broken glass together.
Smash and Grab Prevention
Over the past few years, instances of smash and grab attacks have risen tremendously, especially with vehicles that are stuck in heavy city traffic. Having dedicated smash and grab tint installed on a vehicle will go a long way in preventing this from happening because it renders the window glass virtually impossible to break by conventional means (many thieves engaged in this activity make use of old spark plugs to break windows, as they are easy to conceal, yet hard enough to smash even tempered glass).
Prevent Skin Cancer
Each year, hundreds of thousands of patients are diagnosed with melanoma and other forms of skin cancer. As a result, it has become one of the leading forms of cancer these days, even though it is one of the easiest forms of cancer to prevent. Having window tint installed on your home and vehicle windows will help reduce your exposure to harmful UVA and UVB rays, which will help reduce your chances of developing this condition.
In most cases, would-be burglars will not break into a home if they are not able to see what is being kept inside. Window film will not only prevent them from being able to see inside your home; it will also make it far more difficult for them to break in, as it provides an additional layer of protection on the glass. While normal tinting products simply darken the glass, there are mirrored tints available as well that make it virtually impossible to see inside from outside – and they can help improve curbside appeal too.
When having window tinting products installed in buildings or vehicles, it is imperative that the work be carried out by accredited installers.
