Why Do Some People Think Window Film Harms Double-Pane Windows?

In the past, window film contributed to trouble with double-pane windows. The film could cause the glass to overheat and break. This flaw is not a problem with a knowledgeable window tint company, compatible film and professional installation. This is why it is important to choose a window tint film company that has the knowledge and experience to know which film is safe your windows. We have been in the window tint film industry for 27 years.  Spectrum Window Tinting LLC has specific window films designed for double pane windows to increase the efficiency of your windows and keep them safe.  Do not trust just any window tint film company with your home or office windows. The repercussions will cost you money in window replacements.

Whomever said “there’s no need to save even more money on my electric bills” has never had window tint film by us. Double pane windows do not provide the level of heat rejection, glare reduction and ultraviolet ray protection that our window tint films accomplish.  We can safely tint your double pane windows and provide superior solar heat gain reduction and ultraviolet ray protection.

What you need to know
Double-pane windows have a space between two sealed pieces of glass. The space is usually filled with a gas. If you apply the wrong film, it may cause the seal in the glass to break or the glass could shatter.

The problem starts if installers use inappropriate film. When the film absorbs heat, as it should, the two panes trap the heat. Some window manufacturers will void a warranty if you install an aftermarket film.

To preserve the original look of your windows, choose a film with little tint. You may not see these films, but you’ll notice the benefits. The film will block heat, glare and ultraviolet light.

You should not apply certain types of film to double-pane windows. When choosing window tinting for double-pane windows, consider how much heat the film absorbs. Not every window tint company is aware of the restrictions on double pane windows and will unknowingly apply unsafe window film.

Don’t use films with a solar-heat-absorption rate of 50 percent or higher. They are not safe for double-pane windows.

You should never use automotive film on flat glass. This is true even if the heat absorption rating is less than 50 percent. Automotive films are not the same as the architectural film we use in homes and businesses.
