Window Films: Five Key Trends for 2020

According to The International Window Film Association (IWFA) five key trends for window films in 2020 have emerged.

As we know, window films or window tints offer multiple benefits and are proven to be cost-effective products to upgrade older existing windows in good condition to achieve:

  • Improved energy savings
  • Safety
  • UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays

Window Films: Five Key Trends for 2020

Schools may increasingly use security window films to help protect people and save more energy

Windows do wonders for a class environment, as the brightness and openness they create is conducive for learning and overall morale.

But in times of a crisis, they can also become a liability.

According to BeSafe Technologies, to ensure they do not become one, utilizing school security window films can serve as a stellar line of defense. Having these security measures on the classroom windows and exterior entrances of a school can help prevent the entry of an armed and dangerous intruder. And, when utilized within a school’s interior, they can be key in preventing an attacker from gaining access to areas of a school where they can continue to do more harm.

School Security Window Film

Window film is, in essence, a stellar option for windows that are not bulletproofed but need an additional layer of protection. Literally a near-invisible film that is applied to windows and makes them much harder to break through, due to an increase in thickness and the adhesiveness of the film.

The most well-known and common kind is 3M Ballistic film. There are two variations that work well together and are commonly utilized, the S140 and Ultra S600. The S140 helps hold broken glass together, and the Ultra S600 excels at tear-resistance.

About 3m Ballistic Film

While 3M will be the first to tell you that their Ballistic Film is not bulletproof, it is vital in helping slow-down intruders thanks to its retention of broken-up window fragments that makes breaking through glass harder. Thus, it provides valuable extra-time for law enforcement to arrive and helps put a stop to any would-be violent intruders.
This especially holds true when the S140 and Ultra S600 are used in conjunction, although they can utilized separately.

Is ballistic film for windows a smart choice?

Should someone desire to have more protection than a simple window but are unable to afford an option such as bulletproof glass, then ballistic film is worth considering. For the reasons above, S140 or Ultra S600 are among the best, whether used in conjunction with each other or independently. Plus, 3M is well-known for their quality products.

They are by no means able to offer a level of protection found with bulletproof glass but provide a degree of protection thanks to their ability to resist damage and slow down a potential intruder.

Other 3m Security Films

Even if ballistic film of the S140 or S600-level are not being used, there are general security films that can be beneficial to schools to install and use. At levels such as S40, S70, and S80, these films are great for reducing the damage of broken-glass from natural (or human) causes and still can be of assistance in an emergency situation.

They are much-less resistant to bullets, of course, hence not featuring any mention of ballistics in the product itself.

3m Security Film for Commercial Usage

As this is an extensive overview it should be mentioned even if it does not directly apply to school safety, that 3m has security film designed for commercial usage. These commercial-use films are explicitly designed to help prevent possible damage from wildlife, such as bird strikes, as well as make “smash and grab” burglaries more difficult.

This kind of film of course is not as useful for a school-setting but helps to illustrate just how many options exist for window film.

3m Security Film Installation

Generally, professional installation is highly recommended. It can cost only $50-$80 per window and be done perfectly, easily saving money that could be lost through shoddy self-installation. On top of that, incorrect installation could result in reduced effectiveness of the film, and become a major risk to the safety of those inside. Again, if you are already spending the money on window film, it makes a great deal of sense to pay a bit extra and have professional installation done.

Of course, none of these options are a cure-all for the dangers a school may face. But as windows and doors are often the first thing an intruder, or possible school-shooter will encounter, having them reinforced via whatever means are both possible and affordable is clearly a wise choice.

The trend toward natural daylighting in buildings is likely to continue

According to a new study conducted by Alan Hedge, a professor in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell, workers in daylit office environments reported an 84 percent drop in symptoms of eyestrain, headaches and blurred vision symptoms, which can detract from productivity.

“The study found that optimizing the amount of natural light in an office significantly improves health and wellness among workers, leading to gains in productivity,” said Hedge. “As companies increasingly look to empower their employees to work better and be healthier, it is clear that placing them in office spaces with optimal natural light should be one of their first considerations.”

With Americans, on average, spending more than 90 percent of their time indoors, providing the optimal amount of natural light is vital. Unfortunately, office environments introduce a number of challenges. Most notably, uncontrolled natural light can cause unwanted heat that can lead to intra-office “thermostat wars” and excessive glare on occupants’ eyes and computer screens. Consequently, windows are often covered with blinds or shades, contributing to poorly day-lit spaces.

To conduct the study, Hedge compared the experiences of workers in offices with traditional windows to workers in offices with auto-tinting “smart” windows that adapt to and control the sun’s energy to optimize natural light and reduce glare. The smart windows were manufactured by View Dynamic Glass.

Key findings of the study include:

  • Controlled daylight unlocks significant health and wellness benefits for office workers. Workers in office environments with optimized natural light reported an 84 percent drop in symptoms of eyestrain, headaches and blurred vision symptoms, which often result from prolonged computer and device use at work and can detract from productivity.
  • More natural light translates to more alert employees. Workers in offices with smart glass reported a 10 percent decrease in drowsiness.
  • Enhanced individual performance is tied to access to natural light. Workers sitting close to a window that optimized daylight exposure reported a 2 percent increase in productivity – the equivalent of an additional $100,000/year of value for every 100 workers or around $2m over the window’s lifetime.
  • Natural light creates a better indoor experience. Workers in offices with smart glass reported a 40 percent increase in daylight quality. Lack of daylight and access to views decreases the ability for the eye to relax and recover from fatigue. Additionally, workers in proximity to windows report 80 percent higher daylight satisfaction.

“Despite their best intentions, companies are unwittingly detracting from their employees’ health and performance by limiting their access to natural light,” said Dr. Brandon Tinianov, chair of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Advisory Council and vice president of industry strategy at View. “These findings are a wake-up call to every executive who wants to maximize the wellness and productivity of their workforce.”

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) may be seen as a key rating to assess the energy saving qualities of window films

According to the Convenience Group Inc, in a recent reporting on Myths about Window Film, the Dundas Edward Center in Toronto had a problem with solar heat gain prompting a number of tenants to complain about comfort.

“Our standard response was to say, “Keep your blinds closed,” says The Sorbara Group’s Emil Vertes, the property’s general manager. But solar heat gain continued to plague tendants of the 26-story 270,000 square-foot building, so an emergency conservation program was devised. Amon the initiaves was the idea of replacing the windows with double-pane, tinted glass – an option that would have involved a major capital investment. A more viable option, building managagement discovered, was to install window film.

“Of all the things we did, the window film gave us the biggest feedback. It was the thing tenants noticed the most,” recalls Vertes. He also noticed tenants were keeping their blinds open more often. “What’s the point of having a window if the blinds are always closed.”

General consumer knowledge about window films is likely to advance as information about window films is widely available

“Window films are a very cost-effective retrofit solution for any building that has windows that could be upgraded to meet today’s building codes and energy standards,” said Darrell Smith, executive director of the International Window Film Association (IWFA). “While no one can truly predict trends, based on past experience we would expect window film to be a smart choice over replacement windows for reasons such as costs, energy savings, safety and security, UV protection and curb appeal,” he added. “From a budget standpoint, the winter months are the best time to have window film installed,” said Smith.

The benefits of window film include:

  1. Reducing heat gain through windows by as much as 80%
  2. Curb appeal, as window films are available in wide range of colors from crystal clear through very dark, reflective or non-reflective
  3. Payback as commercial window film applications may see a return on investment (ROI) in less than 3 years depending on film selection, weather location, and glass types
  4. UV radiation is cut by up to 99.9% to help reduce fading of furnishing and offer skin and eye protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB radiation
  5. More safety as security films may discourage burglars from breaking through a window and thick security films may reduce injury from flying glass in bomb blasts and other impacts

Commercial Tinting Film: Six Advantages for Your Business

More Than an Office!

Owning your own building or office space is both a lucrative and rewarding endeavor that gives you the freedom to select who you wish to surround yourself with and create an environment that is both positive and productive. However, as it’s been said before, “With great power comes great responsibility” and when owning your own office, this phrase certainly rings true! Obviously keeping your tenants happy is a major concern and while there’s only so much you can control; a safe comfortable environment is something you can provide!

Commercial Tinting Film   

As surely, you’ve heard, window tinting is the practice of applying tinting film to all the major windows or sources of natural light within a building or residence, with the purpose of reducing the amount of sunlight allowed to enter the dwelling.  While protection from excess sunlight is an obvious reason for the application of tinting film, there are multiple benefits offered by commercial tinting film; many of which can be highly beneficial for both the tenants of the building as well as the actual building itself.

Six Advantages of Window Tint

  1. Comfortable Climate: As mentioned previously, if you have hot, blinding rays of sunlight beaming down on you throughout the day, you are almost certain to be miserable! Fortunately, window tinting can resolve this as tinting film both rejects the sun’s heat and humidity from entering through your windows, as well as significantly reducing the glare caused by excessive natural light. Conversely, the weather resistant film material also provides additional insulation for your building, during those cold winter months. Read more here about the advantages of making your work zone comfortable.
  2. Increased Security: As much as we may love our beautiful city of Sacramento, let’s be honest here; break ins happen all the time! Fortunately, by applying commercial tinting film to your building’s windows, the glass will become shatter resistant, and thereby much harder to penetrate. However, keep in mind that while the window may no longer shatter, the glass can still be cracked or broken upon significant impact, thus intruders can sill break in if they are determined enough.
  3. Improved Safety: Safety is very important and certainly your tenants always want to feel as though they are in a safe environment. Therefore, the fact that tinting film strengthens and reinforces glass is certain to provide the staff with a bit of relief as they will indeed be much safer from any outside hazards such as accidents, intruders, or even natural disasters.
  4. Save Energy: Obviously utility bills can be a bit pricey at times, and with a consistent influx of hot or cold air seeping through your windows on a daily basis, these costs are almost guaranteed to skyrocket! This can be reduced by window tinting; however, as by eliminating hot or cold air from entering the building, the occupants may keep their work space at a comfortable temperature without having to contend with outside interference. This in turn, will significantly reduce the overall amount of energy used, thereby cutting down on energy costs regardless of the outside climate, and assuredly save you money!
  5. Added Privacy: While privacy might not seem like a major concern for an office, the additional veil of privacy may enable the office staff to conduct business without any outside distractions or interruptions, thus encouraging a more productive atmosphere.
  6. Alter Interior Lighting: By adjusting the light entering your building, you will not only make better use of its natural light, you will also be able to direct the sunlight away from sensitive furnishings or equipment. When furniture and appliances are repeatedly exposed to the sun’s harsh UV rays over a period of time, the materials may sustain damage or begin to fade and become discolored. Obviously replacing such items is likely to be time consuming and of course costly, by simply redirecting your light sources through tinting film you can avoid such a scenario.

5 Reasons Office Buildings Need Window Tinting

More Than A Glare

As a workspace, it’s important to keep the number of distractions at an office to a minimum, while maintaining an environment that is both comfortable and encourages productivity. However, when you find yourself constantly interrupted by a blinding glare coming from your window, even the smallest task can become quite a chore.

While such a simplistic problem such as excessive sunlight may seem like little more than a minor nuisance, by creating a difficult or uncomfortable environment this can affect an office’s productivity, cause unnecessary stress amongst employee’s, and eventually lead to financial losses as well! While certainly blinds or drapes provide some temporary relief from the harsh rays of sunlight, by merely masking the problem will you will not fix it, nor will you prevent it from being an ongoing issue in the future. To truly solve this problem once and for all, you need to be proactive and you need a permanent solution; you need a commercial window tinting.

While having the windows of your office tinted may seem like a tall order, commercial tinting can make a big difference in improving workplace comfort, while providing an attractive solution that is almost certain to win praise among employees and clients!

The Major Benefits of Commercial Tinting

Better Environment:

As mentioned previously, when an indoor environment is subject to sunlight, glares and fluctuating temperature are persistent problems that will certainly cause a degree of discomfort and aggravation. However, by having tinting film applied to your major sources of sunlight, you will reduce approximately 95% of the blinding, heat-inducing glare from each window.  This creates a much more comfortable climate for your office’s staff, as well as any guests that may visit.

Interior Protection:

One aspect of natural lighting that is often overlooked is the fact that excessive Ultraviolet (UV) light can be extremely harmful to furniture, carpet, electronic equipment, and other facilities as well. Fortunately, by applying tinting film, your windows will be able to repel upwards of 90% of the UV rays, thereby protecting the furnishings of your office from damage.

Save Money:

How often do you find yourself adjusting the thermostat? Obviously, the heat and humidity are an issue for many the summer months here in sunny Sacramento. Unfortunately, if left unassessed, this issue may prove to itself to be quite costly when receiving your monthly bill. Thankfully, by reducing approximately 80% of the solar heat coming through your windows, commercial tinting will surely put a big dent in those monthly AC bills while simultaneously sparing the office staff from the scorching heat.

Reasons to Choose Professional Commercial Window Tinting vs. DIY

Commercial window tinting has become a common occurrence in sunny cities like Sacramento. It leaves many businesses wondering whether they should attempt a DIY job or call in the professionals. While the allure of saving money is strong, there are a few incentives for professional commercial window tinting that outweigh those of the DIY approach.

Better Quality of Materials

Commercial properties tint their windows for various reasons. Most buildings are home to offices and business professionals. Therefore, tinting blocks the glare of the sun and harmful UV rays from entering the workspace.

Tinting helps in three ways:

  • Fewer Distractions: The glare from the sun can blind or impair employees from completing their work on time.
  • Reducing Health Risks: Window tint blocks harmful radiation from entering the office space, preventing skin damage.
  • Energy Efficiency: Tinted windows block excessive heat from the sun, reducing cooling costs in the summer.

When you choose a DIY kit over professional-grade window tint, you run the risk of using low-quality materials. If you select a product without UV protection or one that peels in extreme heat, you’ll be back at square one.

Smooth Application

If you’ve ever applied a large decal before, then you know how difficult it is to keep things smooth. Between the risk of lopsided film, streaks, bubbles, and warping, it seems impossible for things to go right. Tinting companies are trained to apply their products, taking the stress out of the application.  

When endeavoring to tint alone, there’s no customer service guarantee to fall back on. If the job is botched, you’re out of the money for your kit and left removing the tint yourself. If you use a local expert for application, you know it will come out looking great. If not, you can always rely on customer service to get a reduced rate or complimentary re-do.  

Adherence to State Laws and Regulations

Professional commercial window tinting services have a vast knowledge of not only application but also the laws governing window film. Most Americans are aware of the rules for tinting automobiles, but few consider building regulations.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are guidelines for property tinting, which fall under the Safety Standard for Architectural Glazing Materials. These standards were initiated in March of 2016 and included mandatory testing for the glazing and coloring of glass before installation.

You would hope that DIY kit retailers would adhere to these standards, but how can you be sure? When you hire a professional commercial tinting company, you’re guaranteed high-quality, standardized glaze and film every time.

DIY vs. Professional Tinting

As a recap, the main reasons companies lean toward professional commercial window tinting businesses rather than DIY kits are:

  • The guarantee of high-quality materials
  • Smooth and bubble-free application
  • State regulation adherence
  • Guidance through the entire process

Ultimately, the choice between calling a local expert, like TintMaster, or doing it yourself is a personal one, but you’re rolling the dice and hoping for a perfect outcome if you don’t call in the pros. Whether your commercial property is large or small, hiring help is almost always the best fit.

Improve Customer Experience with Commercial Window Tint


Commercial window tinting has many advantages; it can impact and improve customer experience. A patron’s interaction with your employees and their anticipation of a great experience will affect how they perceive your business

Many proprietors are unaware of the benefits of commercial window tinting as part of the impression they make on visitors. Tinted windows eliminate harsh rays and help control the temperature in your business. It also offers privacy and security. These elements all contribute to an ideal customer experience, as it provides an ambiance that is relaxing and inviting.

Window Tinting Offers Comfort  

One of the most crucial elements to promoting a positive perception of your brand is encouraging your customers to be comfortable. As soon as customers walk through your doors, they are judging the environment.

Customers are very critical and rightfully so because when they are accepting a service from your business, so they expect the best experience. Ensuring that the temperature in your environment is regulated correctly can improve how patrons receive your company.

Tinted windows prevent sun rays from permeating through the window, which supports proper temperatures within a building. Improve customer experience, so it’s not too cold or too hot can affect a client’s mood and comfort level. Discomfort can also result from glare and brightness from outside — windows that are tinted shield people from the sun’s beams. You can also ensure customers see the very best of your business because harsh UV rays won’t be damaging your furnishings or products.

Commercial Window Tinting Improves Company and Customer Value

A prime aspect of commercial window tinting is its ability to enable businesses to save money on heat and cooling during respective seasons. You’ll save money on energy bills, and that money can go towards further company improvements that only serve to make the customer experience better. Providing better products and valuable services influence the customer’s perception of you and your brand. When clients like how they feel in your office or store, they will continue supporting your business with the understanding that you take pride in your image and in customer satisfaction.

Tinting Adds Security and Privacy

Another benefit to commercial window tinting is that it comes in various colors and opacities. If you’re concerned about security, you can choose a window tint that is opaque from the outside, but customers can still see the outside from within your space. You will be part of a community that is considered safe because vandals will avoid buildings with heightened security measures or that they cannot see into. This level of security offers reassurance to clients and encourages them to feel safe. They are also not a spectacle to persons walking outside of your business. Instead, their privacy is upheld.

Keep Your Employees Cool with Commercial Window Tinting



Sometimes, an office does not provide the most accommodating working conditions for everyone. There is always someone who feels unsettled or uncomfortable because of the temperature in their department. When areas are too hot or even too cold, they can impair the comfort level in the office, lowering the drive to concentrate or work diligently. Commercial window tinting can help business owners to keep office workers happy and building owners to retain tenants and lower operating costs.


Does Your Building Face East or West?

The position of your windows or building could be affecting the temperature in your space. Windows facing either east or west are susceptible to increased glare and direct sunlight throughout the day. Between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, the sun’s rays are at their hottest and brightest. So, when you are in an office with limited shade to control the intense light from the sun, it can be difficult to tolerate. The unblocked sun can cause unbearable glares off of computer screens, increase the temperature in the office, and, overall, limit the productivity of workers.


Productivity is Important, So Keep Temperatures Comfortable

In any business, maintaining productivity is crucial. When workers are productive, this enables your company to achieve its goals. However, the work environment must be rewarding and conducive to the needs of your workers. Sweltering temperatures and constantly shifting to read a screen are not ideal conditions for an employee to work effectively. And if this is an everyday occurrence, you’re losing out on hours of productivity.

Tinting your windows helps to control the temperature in the building. It operates as a screen to manage the amount of sunlight permeating through your glass windows. With this addition to your office windows, you are achieving optimal comfort for your employees. The overall temperature in your workplace remains regulated, and the sun will no longer be blinding as it bounces off of reflective office surfaces.

Top 5 Reasons for Commercial Window Tinting in Sacramento


Why do you need commercial window tinting?

When you hear the term window tinting, several things are likely to come to mind. Most often these concepts surround the darkening of windows in your home or perhaps your car, particularly for the purposes of protection from sunlight or for privacy. While both of these perceived purposes would be correct, the protection and benefits behind window tinting are numerous and extend to beyond simply individual homes and cars, but to large commercial buildings as well.

If you have lived in Sacramento for any period of time, then you may know that from July to September Sacramento holds the distinction of being the sunniest place on the entire planet! It is in these hot, dry summers that protection from the sun’s brutal UV rays is most critical, thus the investment in protection for both your property and for yourself is certainly worthwhile.

If you are considering having your windows tinted, it is important to remember that although tinted windows are designed to protect and shield us from the outside elements, there are many additional benefits to commercial window tinting that you may not have considered.

Benefits of Window Tinting:

There are many benefits of high quality commercial window tinting for properties and buildings. Window tinting can reduce up to 85% of the heat from the sun and give 99% rejection of ultraviolet light and reduce 95% of the glare. Window tinting films also offer complete privacy during the day. Films come in varying degrees of light transmission so you can pick the window film that best meets your individual needs.

Commercial Window Tinting Will Save You Money

Commercial buildings of any size will save money by maintaining a consistently balanced temperature. An immediate return on any window tinting investment will be realized when commercial films are installed because operating costs and monthly energy usage will be lowered. By window tinting your office, you can also enjoy up to 15 degrees of saved temperature from the film itself which translates into energy cost savings on air conditioning.

Comfortable Work Environment with Window Tinting

Any sunlit environment is subject to temperature shifts created by glare, hotspots, heat and fluctuating temperatures. It’s important to keep employees, guests, clients and shoppers comfortable. Significant amounts of UV rays can be screened out with the installation of commercial window tinting by shielding the UV rays, glare and heat from entering your work environment. It will also soften the light, balancing the temperature and maintaining a comfortable work environment all year-round.

Interior Building Protection Using Window Tinting Films

Window tinting can protect valuable contents in your building.

Security Window Tinting Films Offer Safety

One of the most vulnerable parts of your building is the windows and glass. Protection and safety in the workplace should always be top priority. Window films are available in security window film versions that are thicker and help hold the window glass in place if shattered. This feature can reduce the chances of burglary, damage to your property and even personal injury.

Decorative window films give you the opportunity to make the best impression with decorative window films on your building or even in your home office. Commercial window tinting films offer a large selection of styles and designs to suit almost any environment that you want to add dimension or personality to within your space.

Where to buy Window Tinting Films for Commercial Buildings

The first consideration is for quality and not always price since a high quality commercial window tinting film will last for years. The old adage of “you get what you pay for” rings true in this area! Don’t fall into the trap of purchasing a low-grade window tin that will only last a couple of years. It will cost you more money in the long run, because you will have to replace it.

As a family owned and operated business, TintMaster pride themselves on professional installation, high-quality materials, and unparalleled customer service.
