There is no job that we can’t handle. Tinting your office, car or home with the correct film can not only save you money on air-conditioning but can also give privacy and comfort. The Queensland sun is very harsh, and we will notice our summers are getting longer and hotter. Over the years we have sourced, tried and tested the best window films to be used for these conditions.

We stock the best quality window films on the market from Rayno, Global, Avery, Hanita, SunTek, UltraGard and 3M.  Q Tint can supply and install films that will suit your needs and to help cool you down during the hot summer days.

WE STOCK A RANGE OF HIGH-QUALITY WINDOW FILMS

We will supply and install the best quality Avery Dennison window films.  This will give you a range from natural/light films while still cutting out 99% UV rays, through to films that are dark to cut that annoying glare.  Avery Dennison dual reflective films reject up to 78% of solar energy, what better way to fight back against the harsh Queensland sun!

The Suntek film range we offer, provides 4mil safety, for jobs like home day care, frost for total privacy, and silver film for maximum heat reduction and ILRDS Infinity series.  A revolutionary, non-corrosive sputtered film that is great for most commercial jobs.  Our car film range also includes UltraGard and Rayno.  This gives your car a great look with a durable film because of its outstanding performance features.

Our decorative range can provide you options for a decorative frost alternative, giving an “edgy” look to your decor.

WINDOW TINTING HOW IT WORKS

I’m sure that at some stage during your schooling you

 learnt about light.  But unless you became some sort of scientist or engineer, this is probably the first and best time to gain from those lessons.

The sun gives off ultraviolet rays, infrared light, and visible light.  They have different wavelength and electromagnetic energy that determine their ability to penetrate natural barriers and produce heat.  The more barrier they have to cross, the lesser the chance of them reaching us.  That’s the reason why walking under the heat of the sun without any protection is detrimental to our health.  Doing so allows UV rays to penetrate our skin on a cellular level, causing damage to our skin cells.  Sometimes, the damage triggers cells to mutate, which marks the beginning of cancer.

Brisbne Window Tinting - tint helps protect

Now, experts have long studied the properties of these solar energy components.  As a result, have developed materials and techniques to block them.  Manufacturers used this knowledge to produce different window tinting films.  Some films can block ultraviolet rays that fall within a certain range of wavelength.  This will minimise the light and heat that pass through them.

There are films that are designed to let the safe amount of solar energy pass through and then prevent that solar energy from escaping.  They are often used to insulate homes and buildings during the cold season.  Then there are types that are extremely efficient in reflecting solar energy.  Instead of passing through the glass, this solar energy bounces off the surface of the film.   This heat rejection will protect your home from heating up, therefore, saving your air conditioner from overworking.  But how do you know which is which?

 

WINDOW TINT FILM RATINGS

When you buy film, there is a list of indicators that allow buyers to determine what kind of window tinting film it is and what it does.  The list usually contains enough categories to keep you reading until the next season.  We’ve shortlisted a couple of items that are important to consider in film selection.

VLT (Visible Light Transmittance)

This refers to the percentage of light that can pass through the window tinting film.  The lower the rating, the less amount of “visible light” can pass through.  So, if you want more light to come into the room, opt for one with a higher rating.  A film with a 25% VLT and higher should keep the lighting in the room at a comfortable level.

TSER (Total Solar Energy Rejected)

As the name implies, this refers to the percentage of heat that will not penetrate the window film.  This percentage of solar energy is “bounced” back off the film.  The films with a high TSER generally tend to have a reflective exterior appearance and you will sacrifice some of the natural light (VLT).  However, there are some film options available that will let through a high level of natural light while maintaining a moderate to high solar energy rejection.

GLARE REDUCTION

Window films can do a great job in reducing glare entering through your windows.  This can be important in media/TV rooms and also for bedrooms to reduce early morning or afternoon glare, even glare from street lights at night.  A darker film will give you the best result with reducing glare, a low VLT around 10%.

VLR (Visible Light Reflectance: Exterior and Interior)

– refers to the amount of light reflected away by the film.  Generally, films with a high exterior reflectance will give you the best solar heat rejection.  Window films with  low reflectance will give a subtle, natural appearance.
