  Window tinting - Tinted Windows   Lower your energy costs
In summer, tinted window reflects the sun, reducing solar heat gain and air conditioning costs. In winter, tinted window provides an additional thermal shield, reducing costly heating bills. Tinted window pays for itself year-round.

  Improve your year-round comfort
Tint window can create a more comfortable environment by eliminating "hot wall" and "cold wall" problems. You will stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter no matter where the sun is shining. Window tinting also cuts annoying glare which adds to your personal comfort.

Reduce heat
Today's window tint is extremely efficient at controlling the effects of solar energy. Tinting can provide up to 78% heat reduction as compared to untreated glass.

Reduce health risks
All our tinting films protect you and you’re loved from the potential dangers of the sun (Skin cancer) and its side effects.

Reduce costly fading of furniture & carpets
Window tinting can screen out up to 99% of ultraviolet rays which are the main cause of fading of store displays as well as home and office furnishings


  Increase your security

Tinted window also severely impairs burglars and "smash and grab" looters from gaining access through store windows. Applied to the glass exterior, tint can even protect against vandalism and accidental scratching.
  Increase your safety
Window tinting film bonds with the glass creating a shatter resistant barrier, protecting the people inside, from flying glass, shards or fragments. This barrier can be of critical importance in protecting executives and personnel in industrial or government facilities where the risk of explosions can be higher. This barrier is equally important in the home where severe weather and household accidents can severely injure children and other family members.
Deter thieves
A tinted window in your vehicle helps to discourage thieves. Once a thief tries to break the window the film helps to keep the glass together and hence makes it more difficult to break into your vehicle or home.

Save money on utilities
Window tinting helps keep your hard money where it belongs, in your pocket.

Protect your investments
Window tinting will add value to your vehicle, home and business.

Add more privacy
Window tint can be an attractive alternative to curtains or blinds. Our films afford a clear view to the outside, while at the same time, preventing others from looking in during the daytime.
