Applying a film or coating is placed over any forms of float glass to make tinted class is an excellent option for existing windows and cost effective.

Tinted glass is used for various purposes. It can be used to reduce the amount of light coming in. It can also be used to decrease the amount of heat coming into a building or car. This glass has multiple applications and can be used for glass roofing, glass facades, automobile windows and windshields as well as anywhere that heat protection and privacy is needed.

The advantages of tinted glass: Heat insulation:

Tinted glass reflects off a lot of heat, making the building cooler in warm weather. It can also be used to conserve indoor warmth when it is cold outside. It offers as much as 30% improvement in energy efficiency. In order to have it reflect off the heat of the sun, the film must be applied on the outer side of a glazed window. In order to keep the interiors warm, to prevent the heat from escaping outside, the tinted film must be applied on the inside of a glazed window. It is therefore popularly used by architects and builders in the construction of green buildings. Most swanky buildings like malls, apartment buildings and IT parks have tinted glass facades for lowering energy costs.

Some films especially those that are very dark, metallic or silvered impede visibility for those on a high light side and provide complete visibility from the low light side. This way tinted glass helps to achieve privacy. This is another reason that this glass is popular with apartment buildings and offices.


Tinted glass enhances the aesthetics of any place where it is installed. For instance, bluish-silver tinted. Glass facades, glimmering in the sun along with steel fittings gives an office an instant facelift. It adds a degree of sophistication to any building or even car. Imagine how sleek a black Lamborghini looks with black tinted windows!

Protection from UV rays:

Tinted glass not only protects you from the heat but also from the accompanying harmful UV rays of the sun. UV rays can cause much skin damage. They can also fade furnishings and furniture. By using tinted glass, you can protect yourself and the interiors from long lasting harm.

Australia has, in most parts, a hot warm climate and having tinted windows is a good idea. Ask any of our team about your tinted glass options, and they will be happy to install it for you.
