What is the difference between car window tint and home or office window tint?

Difference Between Car, Home or Office Window Tint

Difference between window tint

Car window tint and home or office window tint both have the same purpose; to keep the interior of your car, home or office more comfortable. The intense heat and glare caused by sunlight can make in the inside of a vehicle or room uncomfortably warm.

Car Window Tint

Car window tint is designed to shrink to fit the curves of automotive windows. There are also many restrictions and regulations for car window tint. Like how dark the tint is allowed to be as well as the use of reflective tints. These restrictions can vary from state to state and country to country and are for your safety as well as the safety of others on the roads. Blocking out too much light makes it difficult to see what is happening outside the car, worsening and night or in low-light conditions.

Home and Office Window Tint

Just like car window tinting, there is a range of options when it comes to tinting your home or office. And choosing a window film for your home or office will come down to what you want to achieve. From privacy and security to heat reduction or blocking harmful UV rays.

Why they are different

Window film used for home and office window tinting reflects heat, whereas automotive window tint absorbs the heat. And while the intended purpose is the same, they are quite different. If you were to use an automotive window tint on a window in your home or office, there is a good chance that the window will break, as the film shrinks with heat. Similarly, if you were to use a home or office window film on your car, you could be breaking many laws concerning visibility. Always choose a professional window film installer when looking to install window tint to ensure a quality job and warranty.
