The Importance of UV Blocking Window Film for Denver Winters

November 23, 2020 in Aggrigate, UV/UVB/ RF Blocking Window Tint

UV blocking window film is something most homeowners are thinking about and calling us for in the head of the summer. Why? Well, logically because this is when it is hot outside. So lowering heat indoors is on the mind. However, UV blocking window film is more than a hot season consideration. It is actually needed just as much in winter as it is in summer. Find out more below. 

Reasons Why You Need UV Blocking Window Film In Winter Too

Is UV blocking window film only effective in summer? Or is it something that could be helpful in winter? The answer may surprise you–these types of film are needed year-round and are just as effective in the winter as in the summer. Here is why.

UV Blocking Window Film For the Reflection of the Sun Off Snow

We get a fair amount of snow here in Denver and what we get sure is pretty. But it also brings with it a host of issues outside of car accidents and bitter cold. Did you know that snow reflects and magnifies sunlight? That’s right–the glare off the snow is incredibly powerful and is why you can go snow blind or get a sunburn–even on an overcast day. This is why window film is so relevant in the winter. It is used to block UV rays in winter and summer. It stops the reflection of UV rays off the snow and into your home protecting your skin and eyes.

UV Blocking Window Film to Stop Solar Heat Gain on Glass

It may seem like UV rays coming through your Denver home’s window to heat it up a bit more would be a good thing right? Actually–no. Your home’s HVAC systems are designed to use the air temperature near the center of your home (usually near the center) to regulate the temperatures. Therefore, there is no way for it to account for, or adjust to, the massive amount of radiant heat coming off of your untreated windows. This means the areas by your windows get as uncomfortably hot as it is in summer without UV blocking window film. Also, it means your HVAC systems work harder and need more frequent repairs. 

UV Blocking Window Film to Curb Harmful Radiation in Winter

UV rays beaming into your home at any time of the year–summer or winter–are destructive. It doesn’t matter if it is sunny or cloudy, hot or cold, the effects of these rays are the same. They will destroy and fade your home’s furniture, rugs, curtains, and floors. More concerning–are harmful to your eyes and skins, causing illnesses, headaches, and even certain types of cancer. This means even in winter, you should utilize the protection that films are designed to provide: an SPF 1000 and blocking 99.9% of harmful UV rays.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED TO REPLACE SECURITY WINDOW FILMS?

March 4, 2020 in Aggrigate, Safety And Security Film

We get a lot of inquiries about how long it will take until security window film will need to be replaced. This is a good question and the great news is–not often. This is true of most types of window film. But, security window film does have some extenuating circumstances that could mean you need to replace it more often. This is simply due to the function of the film–protection. So as you will see, the fact that you need to replace security film on your Denver building could be a very good thing. Find out why below.

SECURITY WINDOW FILM NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AFTER A BREAK-IN, ACCIDENT OR STORM

The purpose of safety and security window films is to add safety to your Denver home or business. It does this by keeping glass safely adhered to even after severe blows from a storm, intruder or accident. When the glass stays on the film it can’t fly around and hurt people. So, if you need to replace the film, it is almost always due to a catastrophic event—more likely than not the film saved lives. After such an event the window, frame, and security film need to be replaced.

SECURITY WINDOW FILM NEEDS TO BE REPLACED WHEN IT GETS OLD

Like any film on the market– window film gets old. Film on windows that face east or west especially, tend to age faster. When a window film gets visibly old due to exposure to the sun it stops being as effective. Since it is in place to protect people–this means it needs to be replaced when visibly aged or risk of injury is introduced. Here in Denver (where the sun is intense) this could happen faster than say–the Pacific Northwest. In replacement circumstances like this, you can usually keep the safety frames.

SECURITY WINDOW MAY NEED TO BE REPLACE WHEN YOU REMODEL

If you are doing a remodel on a home and need to move a window, you may have to replace your security film. This largely depends on your particular renovation. But once a security film is torn or scratched it is no longer effective. Whether or not you can use the specialty frames again depends on the and skill of your contractor and the age of the frames. Specialty security framing should be able to be used again if properly removed.

All in all–once the security film is in—it is there for a good long time–unless it saves your life. Contact us at Denver Window Tinting today to schedule a free, on-site security assessment today!
