Film for glass panes is available in both pre cut window tints and rolls. When installed, the product will filter out a considerable portion of sunlight and preserve interior furniture. Many companies offer pre cut window tints that can achieve close to 100 percent filtering. Many clients prefer to purchase the material in measured kits because they save a great deal of time. The customer only has to trim the excess product off of the edges and the installation is complete. Film is available in an array of colors and filtering power, and this provides a way for the customer to choose the exact amount of shade necessary. These products are available for use on commercial, vehicle or residential glass.
Light filtering products offer several beneficial qualities to the glass it’s applied to. It rejects harsh heat and solar radiation, and this heat reduction can reduce the energy needs of the vehicle. Reducing the load on the air conditioner can save gallons of fuel over the course of a year. This type of product is also shatter resistant, and if the pane is exposed to trauma, the film will keep small shards of glass from being expelled into the vehicle. This can be especially useful during rough weather or a break in. Safety is the most important benefit that this product brings and is growing in popularity due to its ease of installation.
Pre cut window tints are made of high quality, premeasured plastic. Premeasured varieties save the homeowner time and frustration during installation, as the majority of problems that come up during installation tend to be caused by inaccurate measuring and cutting. Using a prebuilt kit means less cutting and slicing. This reduces injury risk and also ensures a better fit on the pane. After installation, there will be less waste left over, which is a plus for the cost conscientious person.
Installation requires Gala solution, a squeegee and a razor. In the kit, the plastic is already measured to fix the exact model, make and year of the vehicle it is to be applied to. To install the film, place it on the glass and trim the excess, then wet the product and apply it directly to the pane.
While pre cut window tints are available, if one needs to apply film to several areas, it makes more sense to purchase a roll of the material. The roll is not measured, and so the client must trim it to fit each individual pane. The roll of film can generally cover the glass surfaces of several vehicles, and there will likely be quite a bit left over after use. The excess can be useful down the road if another vehicle is purchased, or if the original installation wears out over time. Dealing with a roll of film requires precision while measuring, and if a sheet is cut too small, it has to be trashed. There is typically more difficulty when installing this product from a spool.
Though rolls of window film are available, it usually isn’t a viable option for most customers. Pre cut window tints allow the client to quickly install the product, saving on both time and effort.
