Is Residential window film installed on the inside or the
outside of the glass?
Window film is always applied to the inside of the home.
Installers simply use the outside in some cases .
What film is legal for my car?
Laws pertaining to how dark you can tint your car windows vary from
province to province. Here in Africa the Law says this:
The Police officer must see the driver from outside the tinted window.
To understand what that meant I talked to one Police Officer and he explained
to me that : "if you want to know if your tint is legal or not, take
your driver's license and from inside your car hold it against the tinted
window, if the driver's license is readable from the outside you're in
the legal zone. If not, your tint is illegal. However don't worry, we
will let you know if the tint you choose is legal or not.

No. Window film will not completely eliminate fading from occurring.
Depending on the type of window film that is applied, window film can

can combat all of these threats.

No. Solar film does an excellent job at holding broken glass
together but it cannot prevent the window from breaking if it comes in contact

Safety & security films can be found anyplace
where glass breakage poses a threat - homes, commercial buildings, retail
stores, government buildings and even cars. They are available in a variety
of thickness sizes depending on the level of protection needed, and you
can choose either a clear film, if you don't want the look of window
film, or a shaded version if you are looking for added solar protection.
Another popular protection film is anti-graffiti. This clear film was
created to protect glass and other non-porous surfaces from accidental
scratches and acts of vandalism.

Yes, it is still important to do so: Window films have many useful characteristics such as reducing glare, enhance the home beauty,
Create comfort by reducing the heat during the summer time and reducing the air conditioning that escape from your home through the glass.
Is it true that the glass permit the heat to escape from my house to the outside?
Yes it is true. I explain.There are some universe laws such as hot air is lighter than normal air. Such laws exist also for temperatures
The glass is separation between the inside and the outside of your home; but it permits transfer of temperature. The universe laws say that temperature travel from the hot point to the cold point.
That means during the winter the hot point is your home and the heat is going outside ( 15%) through the normal glass and during the summer the hot poit is outside and the heat is coming inside your home through the glass too.
With tinted glass you reduce the heat transfer ummer or winter, plus you cut the glare, you enhance your home, you create more comfort and you save money too.
Generally that ia about 24 months, but remember that residential window tinting is a lifetime projet.
