Being able to use natural light to illuminate the interior of a building is always a big advantage. It provides a nice opportunity to become “green” or environmentally responsible, as well as minimize energy consumption so money can be saved. The problem with using natural light, though, is that it’s hard to control the amount of brightness and glare it provides. And of course, sunlight brings in heat and has damaging UV rays which are known to morph the appearance of natural materials. For commercial property owners who want to take advantage of the generous amounts of sunlight that daytime brings, the intensity of natural lighting is the usual problem, mainly because it can be a source of discomfort for people and it somehow reduces the visual impact of certain components used to enhance interior aesthetics. These problems don’t mean that business establishments can just forget about being green and eco-friendly; there are solutions to these problems which will not only effectively address the aforementioned issues but also create other improvements. Thoughtful and strategic window treatments like curtains and blinds are good examples; they are attractive interior decorating implements that prevent natural light from coming in — just draw them down and sunlight is completely blocked. But if this isn’t what commercial establishments want — say, they prefer a sleek, clean, and completely polished look devoid of obstructions to the view of the outdoors — then the better solution would be to try window tinting. Los Angeles builders claim that window tints are more suitable for modern and sophisticated business locations for not only do they maintain the original interior style, but they are also additional implements that do not necessarily add extra cleaning responsibilities.
When it comes to aesthetics, climate, and comfort advantages, Los Angeles builders have rounded up five more that come from opting for window tinting instead of blinds and curtains.
Window tints are better filters of natural lighting. The tints these days have been improved by technology to control the amount of glare. With better filtered natural light, the original colors of interior décor are maintained — they look crisp and clean.
Another advantage of better light filtering is that people are prevented from squinting due to glare intensity.
Window tints also filter the amount of heat absorbed by the windows, assisting the building’s HVAC system in maintaining indoor climate.
Window tints also help maintain the quality of interior design elements like hardwood flooring, seating made from fabric or leather, paintings, etc. With UV protection, the morphing of colors and sizes of these elements can be prevented. Not only those, but people indoors are also protected from harmful UV rays.
Window tints with graffiti film also make maintenance of glass windows a breeze. They are vandalism- and scratch-proof so business establishments can be sure that nothing can take away from the nice appearance of their glass windows (and even doors).
