Window Films Of Yesterday Vs. Today

Window film has evolved over the 50+ years of its inception in many ways that make our modern lives better. This is because the window tinting and film industry is always looking for and developing different films for a number of new age applications. So much so, that it has come a very long way since the days of thick, dark, sheets applied to only glass windows. Today, films are not only for providing sun relief for home and business owners but for a multitude of other purposes. Even in the 10+ years, we have been providing Salt Lake City with window films and tints we have seen a variety of new products come on the market that provides more valuable benefits than ever before.

Privacy Window Films With Perfect Clarity

In the early window film days, window film for privacy also blocked much of the view from people inside homes and commercial buildings too. Today’s window tints offer more comprehensive light to dark range options and many that result in almost no loss of clarity.

High Definition Decorative Window Film In Salt Lake City

Decorative window film is a great way to add a unique interior design element to glass surfaces in your home or office, at a reasonable price. But it is often thought of as dated and gaudy. However, the decorative patterns of today are not loud pictures or patterns of an era gone but rather HD graphics, that give a modern look and even coming in elegant frosted glass and etched patterns–replicating real glass.

Daylight Redirecting Window Film In Salt Lake City

One type of window film that far more technologically advanced than it’s predecessors is daylight redirecting film. The ingenious window film literally redirects rays of sunlight. So, rather than shining directly in front of the windows in a room, creating glare, sunlight is redirected deeper into the building where light is low. This creates more comfortable and consistent light levels through the use of innovative window film science.
