Reflective films tend to be much more effective than tinted films at preventing excess heat. Thanks to their metallised coating, they reflect sunlight and heat away before they penetrate through the glass making the room more comfortable. Tinted films are just as efficient when it comes to controlling excess glare, but without the reflective finish and the added privacy aspect. Internally, both types of film will look very similar adding a grey blue tinge to the glass. Like sunglasses for your windows.
Reflective film has both a tinted and mirror like appearance. The tint reduces the amount of glare whilst the reflective finish helps control excess heat and adds daytime privacy. It also stops 99% of UV light responsible for thefading of furnishings, carpets and wooden floor.
It all depends on how dark a film you require. For single pane glass, any film is suitable. It gets a bit more complicated with regards to double glazed units. If the pane you are applying the film to is toughened, then any grade of film is suitable. Otherwise you will have to select a lighter option. Please check the product's specifications and compatibilty data first.
Yes, the film will work just as well on single pane or double glazed units. However, for heat control, we would recommend an external reflective film as it is much more efficient at stopping the heat building up within the panes.
