Q. WILL ALL WINDOW FILMS DARKEN MY HOME?

NO THAT IS A FALLACY. EVERY FILM HAS A PURPOSE, THE CLARITY AND TRANSPARENCY IS MEASURED BY VLT (EXPLAINED BELOW) AND IS A FACTOR OF COST AND QUALITY.
IT IS A FACT THAT MORE EXPENSIVE FILMS PROVIDE FAR SUPERIOR PROTECTION AGAINST HEAT TRANSMITTED AND REJECTED, HOWEVER ALL FILMS PROTECT AGAINST UV.

AT MR TINT AND SUN WE ARE CAREFUL TO HELP YOU CHOOSE THE CORRECT FILM TYPE FOR THE PARTICULAR NEED YOU HAVE. WE WILL MATCH YOUR BUDGET AND REQUIREMENTS AND PROVIDE
THE RIGHT FILM, ON THE RIGHT WINDOW AT THE RIGHT PRICE.

MR TINT AND SUN - THE DIGITAL WINDOW TINTING COMPANY PROVIDES AN IDEAL FILM FOR THE LIVING AREAS AND THIS IS A NANO CERAMIC IR FILM AND IT HAS THE FOLLOWING PROPERTIES- (SOME VARIABLES MAY VARY ON THE EXACT FILM CHOICE AND PRICE.

THE PROPERTIES ARE-

1.  HIGH VLT (VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMITTANCE) WHICH MEANS A LOT OF LIGHT PASSES THROUGH
THE WINDOW SO MAKING THE ROOM LIGHT. A VLT OF 70% + IS VERY GOOD

2.  MODERATE VLR (VISIBLE LIGHT REFLECTANCE) AND A VLT OF 12% IS EXCELLENT AS YOU GET SOME REFLECTANCE AND PRIVACY BUT NOT OVERBEARING.

3.  TSER (TOTAL SOLAR ENERGY REJECTION) OF AROUND 40% IS OUTSTANDING WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE VLT IS HIGH. NORMALLY HIGH TSER IS ONLY ASSOCIATED WITH DARK FILMS.

4.  UVR (ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION REJECTION) OF 99% IS STANDARD ON HIGH QUALITY FILMS. ESSENTIAL TO PROTECT YOU HOME AND FAMILY.

5.  IRR (INFRARED REJECTION) OF AROUND 40% IS GOOD AS THAT IS THE HEAT BEING REJECTED FROM YOUR HOUSE. THIS KEEPS YOUR HOUSE COOLER AND SAVES YOU MONEY ON AIR CONDITIONING.

6.  SC (SHADING COEFFICIENT WHICH HAS BEEN UPDATED TO SGHC. THIS IS CALCULATED BY MULTIPLYING THE SC X 0.87)  WHICH IS DEFINED AS THAT FRACTION OF INCIDENT SOLAR RADIATION THAT ACTUALLY ENTERS A BUILDING THROUGH THE ENTIRE WINDOW ASSEMBLY AS HEAT GAIN.) SO A SC OF 0.52 OR 0.45 FOR SGHC IS A VERY SOLID FIGURE AND IS ONLY POSSIBLE WITH ALL THE OTHER FACTORS BY USING A HIGH QUALITY FILM.

7.  SR (SCRATCH RESISTANCE) IS IMPORTANT WE LIKE OUR WINDOWS CLEAN. A 2H ANTI SCRATCH COATING IS APPLIED AND THAT IS STANDARD ON HIGH QUALITY FILMS.

Q.  HOW DO WINDOW FILMS WORK?

MR TINT AND SUN SELLS FILMS THAT ARE DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF SOLAR HEAT TRANSMISSION THROUGH WINDOW GLASS BY INCREASING THE SOLAR REFLECTION (NOT NECESSARILY VISIBLE REFLECTION) AND SOLAR ABSORPTION OF THE GLASS.

1.  TYPICAL COLOURED OR DYED FILMS WORK PRIMARILY THROUGH INCREASED ABSORPTION. THE COLOUR ABSORBS THE SOLAR ENERGY AT THE GLASS, THUS REDUCING THE DIRECT TRANSMISSION OF HEAT INTO THE ROOM. THESE FILMS ONLY OFFER MARGINAL PERFORMANCE WHEN COMPARED TO REFLECTIVE FILMS.

2.  REFLECTIVE FILMS ARE FILMS THAT HAVE BEEN PRECISION COATED WITH METALS. THESE METALLIC FILMS ARE DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE SOLAR ENERGY REFLECTION OF THE GLASS AND SOME OF THE ABSORPTION. REFLECTIVE FILMS RANGE FROM MILD TO EXCELLENT IN SOLAR HEAT REJECTION PERFORMANCE (HEAT GAIN REDUCTION). 

3.  NANO CERAMIC AND SPUTTER IP FILMS ARE FAR SUPERIOR FILMS WHERE VLT IS REQUIRED. YOUR LIVING ROOMS OR ROOMS WITH A VIEW ARE SPOILED BY HAVING DARK WINDOWS. WE SUGGEST STRONGLY THAT ALL 'ROOMS WITH A VIEW' USE NANO CERAMICS IR FILMS. IT'S SIMPLY WORTH THE MONEY!

Q. WILL MR TINT AND SUN WINDOW FILM STOP MY FURNISHINGS FROM FADING AND WHAT CAUSES FADING?

NOTHING STOPS FADING. WINDOW FILMS ARE DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE MAJOR CAUSES OF FADING (ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT, VISIBLE LIGHT, AND SOLAR HEAT), THUS PROLONGING THE LIFE OF YOUR FURNISHINGS.

1.  SCIENCE TELLS US THAT ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT RADIATION (UV) IS APPROXIMATELY 40% OF THE CAUSE, VISIBLE LIGHT RADIATION IS ABOUT 25%, AND (IR) HEAT RADIATION ABOUT 25%.
THE REMAINING 10% CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO AGE, HUMIDITY, POLLUTANTS, INTERIOR LIGHTS, DYE STABILITY AND MANY OTHER FACTORS. HOWEVER MR TINT WINDOW FILMS PROTECT YOU AGAINST 99% OF THE UV RADIATION AND THAT IS THE MAIN CONTRIBUTOR TO FADING.
