Privacy and safety

Window tinting can give you increased privacy without sacrificing lighting. Tint film can be added to your bathroom, bedrooms and other private areas such as your home office, giving you a clear view to the outdoors while preventing outsiders from looking in. The tint will also let in maximum lighting while getting rid of significant glare, enabling you to make maximum use of natural light during the day.

Window tint also forms a rigid layer that makes your windows more resistant to damage from minor bumps and bangs. The film window tint can also hold the glass together when it shutters, preventing glass fragments from flying dangerously into the house. When broken, windows with protective tint also stay intact, reducing your interior's exposure to the elements.

By installing window films in your windows, you will be able to fully enjoy the sun's natural light without having to worry about its fading effects. The film will also cut out heat and glare, allowing you to work and relax without having to close your blinds or drapes.


Window tints are an inexpensive way of giving your home an upscale, contemporary appearance. The films can accurately imitate the look of more expensive windows, and can also provide an elegant, uniform look without the clutter of drapes or blinds.

Residential window tinting can be purchased in different colors and shades to match your home interior. Tints are available in stylish tints such as gray or bronze, or in clear colors that out filter heat and glare while remaining inconspicuous.
