At Altapac, we tint more than just cars. We’ve been tinting homes, businesses and offices almost as long as we’ve been tinting cars. Window tint on your home protects you, your family and your belongings from harmful UV rays and helps to keep you cool during those long, hot Summer days. Window tint also offers privacy and can guard your property against wandering eyes.
It pays to have an expert on your side when you’re thinking about having your home’s windows tinted. There are so many options to choose from and when you choose Altapac, you’ll have a member of our friendly dedicated Flat Glass Team to guide you through the decision making.
Flat glass is the term we use for glass on buildings. Generally, this glass is flat whereas the glass on cars is often curved. Window tints designed for use on curved glass often won’t adhere correctly to flat glass and vice versa, so it’s important to make sure you choose the right film for the job to get the features, quality and longevity you expect from your new home window tint.
There are many benefits and reasons for tinting your home windows.
Window film is the most efficient way to reduce unwanted solar heat transferring through your windows. It can provide up to 78% heat reduction versus untreated glass while controlling hot spots and cooling off sun-drenched areas in your home.
Window film blocks up to 99%* of UV rays, while also significantly reducing heat. This helps to protect your valuable furnishings from fading and provides a “sunscreen” for your skin against the harmful effects of the sun.
Whatever the cause – direct sun, reflections from snow, water or surrounding buildings – there is a perfect window film solution to help reduce annoying glare.
Reducing temperature imbalances caused by extreme sunlight is why so many designers, architects and building engineers desire window film. Reducing heat loss will increase efficiency and lower energy costs.
Accidents, environmental effects and vandalism can instantly turn a pane of glass into life-threatening shards. Window film can act as a “safety net” by holding shattered glass together.
Whether it’s a contemporary look or a uniform design, there’s a choice of window film products that can aesthetically complement the exterior of a home or office building.
Professional installation is quick and simple. There’s minimal disruption to one’s daily lifestyle or work schedule.
