With window coating, you may apply it on any glass window or door for decoration, add privacy or filter out solar radiation
You can coat your window by using window film. Window coating using adhesive-free films are by far the most convenient and popular choices among home owners to protect their windows and homes. In the past, home window film often conjures the image of dark glasses to block off sunlight. This is no longer the case with the newer designs.
There are many benefits of installing window glass films on your windows. Most of the vinyl films are UV rated, which means that they can filter out more than 90% of UV ray from the sun. UV ray is what causes your furniture and carpet to fade in colour and shorten its life. By installing the window static films, you can prolong the life of your upholstery.
Window glass film not only protect your upholstery from UV ray, it also helps to keep the heat out during the summer. When you install window glass films, you also help to reduce the glare caused by the sun. You will have more pleasant experience while watching TV and when you look at your computer monitor. While heat is kept out of the house, you can still block unpleasant view by creative use of window films with decorative elements.
During the summer, as heat is kept out of the house, you save on your electricity bill on your air conditioner. As light is still allowed into the house you save on your bills from the unnecessary use of lights. Previously, many home owners have been using blinds and curtains to keep heat out, but the UV ray will still cause the curtains to fade. Furthermore, when they draw the curtain and blinds, the entire house becomes very dark, and the only way to lighten up the house is by switching on more lights, which not only translates to higher electricity bills, but also generates more heat within the house too.
While window coatings using vinyl films help to keep the heat OUT during the summer, they help to keep the heat IN during the winter. Vinyl films have heat resistance property. The warmth and heat generated from our human body are well contained during the winter and is prevented from escaping to the cooler environment during the winter. Again, this helps to lower your electricity bill down from running the heater all time round.
There are many other uses of the vinyl films to coat your window. Some owners use privacy coating for windows to maintain privacy while at the same time allows natural lighting in. Today, there are many designs available for privacy window films. There is also the fully opaque version or the lite frost which is the semi-opaque version.
Conventionally, to install privacy window glass would means getting the shower door or the bathroom window glass to be frosted. Having a glass frosted is the same process of getting the glass sand-blasted through industrial process and this means replacing totally the shower door or the bathroom window.
Now you can use frosted glass films instead. If you do not like the conventional frosted glass films, you can also opt for etched glass window film. There are many types of etched glass film patterns to choose from.
