Transitional and Photochromic Window Tints

Transitional/photochromic window film is an adaptive film that reduces glare and heat gain by changing to suit it’s environment. The tint contains photochromic dyes that respond to UV rays by getting darker. Eventually, when UV intensity decreases, the tint gradually returns to its original, lighter color. It’s a great way to smooth out the transition from bright to low light and make sure early risers and night owls alike aren’t caught off guard by changes in luminosity. Homeowners can retail ideal lighting in their homes at all times without uncomfortable times of day or having to manually adjust any shades!

Varieties and Options

Metalized window tint is made with tiny embedded metal particles, such as aluminum, which interact with the sunlight to reflect up to 60% of its rays away from your windows. This is a good option for homeowners who have complaints about brightness at certain times of day.

Dye based window tints are becoming increasingly popular with residential homeowners due to their visually appealing look and effective sun protection capabilities. By injecting a dye into window film, this window tinting provides a range of colors for homeowners to choose from. Dyed window tints provide more flexibility when it comes to the desired darkness of their window tint, as they come in a variety of shades ranging from very light to very dark.
