Although we tend to take it for granted, glass surrounds us at work and at home. From windows to architectural art, glass provides both form and function in our lives. Glass can however, be the source of many problems.
Ordinary window glass can’t satisfy all the demands we have today for safety and security, privacy, comfort, and visual appearance. Winter heat loss through glass is an expensive waste of energy. In the summer, solar heat and glare through glass cause irritation, inefficiency, and increased air-conditioning costs.Sunshine through ordinary glass leads to UV fading of color pigments in everything from shop displays and furniture to works of art. Windows also allow unwanted intrusion of privacy, whether by prying eyes or criminals. In an attack by vandals or burglars, or in a damaging storm, window glass is generally the weakest point.
So, from comfort, to safety, to financial savings, there are many compelling reasons to tint the windows of your home or office.
