How to Measure Your Windows for Window Tint

For us Australians, scorching summers are just a part of life that we have to accept. That being said, no matter how hot it is outside, we should do all that we can to make sure that we’re safe, happy, and comfortable in our own home. For that reason, you want to install window tints that can block out the harmful UV rays and heat so that your house stays cool and comfortable. To ensure a high-quality window tinting installation, you need to learn how to measure your windows for window tinting, which is what we will be discussing in this article.

How To Measure A Straight Window

The standard method of measurement for a square window is to go from left to right and from top to bottom. When you’re writing down the measurements for your window film, be sure to give around a couple of inches extra so that you can custom fit it properly to your windows. This step is particularly crucial if you’re ordering a patterned window film.

How To Measure A Round Window

Round windows are often quite hard to measure, as to ensure a high-quality installation, the window film needs to fit the window perfectly. You can’t apply a rectangular film and cut off the excess, as that won’t give you the perfect fit that you’re looking for. Instead, you need to find the precise area of the circle. You may have learned the A=πr2 in school, so put the formula and your brain to use when trying to measure the area of a round window, measure the radius (half the circle length) + 3.14 x2 this should give you a good idcation of the area.

How To Measure A Curved Window

For other types of windows such as a curved window or anything with a novelty shape such as a moon or star-shaped window, you should have a professional window tinting consultant handle the measurement for you. Unless you ar skiled with quadratics, this will minimize the margin of error, and that can help to make the overall outcome look much better.


If you’re looking to do all of the measurements by yourself, here are six tips you need to keep in mind:

1. Check for cracks

If your window is cracked or chipped, the adhesive may not hold very well onto the surface of the glass. You need to check for these imperfections before you apply the window tint onto the window.

2. Don’t include the frame into the measurement

You’re only going to apply the tint onto the glass surface, so you don’t make the mistake of adding the frame into the measurements.

3. Use a long measuring tape

You want to make sure that the measuring tape you’re using is long enough to measure the entire window, as that will help to minimize all the possible mistakes you could be making.

4. Get some help

Measuring large windows aren’t easy, and you’re bound to make some mistakes along the way. There’s no shame in asking for help, in fact, it’s even recommended that you have somebody do the measuring with you.

5. Double check all your measurements

Before you submit the calculations and measurements, you need to make sure that they are correct and accurate so that there’s no confusion between you and the installer.

6. Keep a record of everything

Once you’re done with the measurements, don’t throw them away. You should keep them as a reference so that you won’t have to do it all over the next time you’re looking to retint your windows.

Why You Should Consider Window Film For Your Office

Both your home and your office needs some degree of safety and security measures. You may already have security cameras in place or a complicated lock system installed at your office. However, these measures can be costly, and sometimes they may not even be effective enough. This article will tell you about an alternative security measure that you can add to your office: security film. Here are a few of the benefits of security film that you need to know about:

Minimise the chance of a break in

The worse thing that could happen to your business is having someone break in and steal all that matters to you. Security film can protect your office from break-ins and burglaries as they fortify your glass by adding another layer on top, making it significantly harder to break. In fact, the film is solid enough to withstand numerous blows, and even if the glass breaks, the film can hold the shards together. This way, criminals will have a hard time trying to get in through the windows. Plus, the time that they use to get in and out will increase, which means that there is a higher chance of people seeing the break-in and calling the police.

Hide From View

It is understandable that you would want clear storefront windows to attract the interest of potential customers. However, that should not be the case with other windows – the ones in the back, for instance. Even if you think that criminals only come out at night, the truth is that they will use the daytime to observe the goods and plan their attack before returning when the sun goes down.

The best thing that you can do is to get the film tinted to hide the inside of your store from view. In short, you will be able to see everything outside, but anyone on the other side will not be able to see anything inside. This means that criminals will have a tough time spotting anything that may tempt them to break in and steal.

Another Layer of Protection

Criminals are not the only thing you need to protect your office from. Natural disasters – storms, for instance – can hurl flying debris to your windows as well. Even an accident from a nearby construction site can send scraps flying straight in the direction of your windows. If you have no protection on your windows, serious injuries to your employees or customers might occur, and you will be the one who gets in trouble.

In addition, shards of glass can also be dangerous for everyone who is passing by. Even kids playing nearby can get hurt as a result of the damage. As mentioned, security film can hold the shards together even when the window breaks. This can prevent anyone inside and outside from getting injured by flying debris.


All in all, window tinting offers a number of benefits to the safety of your home and office that is worth the investment. Not only will it increase energy efficiency, but it will also protect you from numerous threats such as flying debris and break-ins. If you want to add another layer of security, then window tinting should be your go-to option. Nuvision Solutions provides world-class window tint across Australia.

Grafitti can be one of the best forms of visual artwork, its seen in its rawest form on Hosier Street. Beyond that, it’s one of the best ways to express your personality, your thoughts, and your feelings. Vandalism of tagging is a very different practice, and is a real pain for a lot of bsuiness owners.

Spray paint can be incredibly difficult to get off, as the most effective way of doing it is to wash the wall with water-jet cleaner. If you think that’s hard, you’ll never want to hear what you have to do to get the graffiti paint off a glass surface. Another problem is that the vandal might find joy in your misery, and they might keep coming back because you know that you have to clean it up. If that’s the case, it’s going to be very difficult to stop them unless you get the authorities involved.

If you’re looking for a way to prevent this, or at least make it easier for you to clean up the mess, anti-graffiti film may be just what you need. These films can make the window surface too slippery for the paint to stick on, which makes grafitti on your property a less than satisfying experience.

Common Window Tinting Misconceptions

A lot of people dont to realize that almost half of UV rays penetrate regular window glass, making its way to your furniture, your carpets, and your skin. One of the most cost-effective ways to protect your assets and yourself from the dangers of UV rays is with window film. You can enjoy up to 99.9% protection from UV rays just by applying tints to your windows.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of window tint misconceptions going around that cause homeowners to hold back before investing in window tint simply because they don’t completely understand the benefits that it is able to offer. Before you rule the idea out, however, it’s best for you to set things straight.


They can’t protect your assets from sun damage

More than half of respondents to a survey reported that they believe that the sun can damage drapes, carpeting, and other furnishings inside a home. However, not as many believe that window tints are able to do quite a bit to protect your furniture and keep them looking pristine. Even if they did nothing else, the extended lifespan of your assets would be well-worth the cost of installing window tint.

You’re safe from UV rays while you’re indoors

Two out of three adults think that they’re safe from UV rays while they’re indoors. Although that would certainly be great, it unfortunately isn’t true. The sun that penetrates your windows and doors can damage your skin and even lead to some major health conditions – skin cancer, for example. When you install window tints, however, you can keep most of the harmful rays out so you can enjoy the beautiful natural sunlight without fearing for your health.

There’s too much maintenance involved in owning window tints

The amount and effort you spend maintaining your window tints is certainly subjective. However, window tints actually aren’t a maintenance-heavy investment. In fact, there is a lot less maintenance involved in window tints than there are with other methods of keeping the sun out. All you have to do is choose a tint-friendly window cleaner and you’re good to go! Other than that, window tint maintenance is virtually nonexistent.

They won’t save any money on your energy bills

Probably the biggest misconception of window film is that they won’t save you any money. However, this is also probably the biggest selling point of professional window tint. Not only do they safeguard your assets and protect your health but they keep your home cooler and reduce the workload of your cooling and heating systems. It’s just like enjoying shade all throughout the day!

There are tons of incredible benefits that window film can offer. It’s important for you to understand them if you are to make a sound judgment on whether or not you should make the investment.

Exterior Shade Systems Vs Window Tinting

It’s wonderful to be able to enjoy natural sunlight at work. Not only does it give you that daily dose of vitamin D but it boosts your mood. There are so many great things about sunlight. However, there are also some not-so-great things such as glare on your laptop screen, fading on your furniture, and more. It’s important for sunlight to be controlled within commercial facilities. The people indoors should be able to enjoy the beautiful light that it offers without sacrificing comfort and energy-efficiency.

The heat that penetrates your windows can account for up to a third of your cooling costs. To reduce energy bills while increasing comfort, a growing number of businesses are considering two options: low-e window film or exterior shade systems. If you’re considering the two as well, here is a run-down of both:

Exterior Shade Systems

Exterior shade systems do just what you’d think. They provide exterior shade and try to keep sunlight from penetrating windows. These systems often involve overhangs, vertical fins, exterior blinds, and even automated systems that you can control depending on the weather outside.

These systems offer advantages that are quite similar to those of window film. Since they try to keep heat from penetrating the windows, they contribute to reducing energy use and therefore utility bills. The shade that the system provides will reduce glare while still allowing people to enjoy the view if they wish.

Although exterior shades systems can be useful, they are also rather difficult to install, particularly if you are looking to install it into an existing building. Furthermore, they will never completely prevent solar heat gain. A fixed overhang may be able to block the sunlight at certain angles but fail to do so at others. Exterior shade systems also require quite a bit of maintenance. They may also increase energy bills during the winter because they’ll be blocking the sunlight when it is wanted.

Low-E Window Film

Most businesses opt to install low-e window film. Not only is it able to contribute to energy efficiency, but it eases glare and keeps furniture, carpeting, and other furnishings from being damaged by the sun. Window film can also block up to 99.9% of UV rays while insulating the window.

Unlike exterior shade systems, window film reduces energy use throughout the year. It reduces solar heat gain during the warmer months and also reduces thermal loss during colder months.

Window film doesn’t obstruct the view to the outdoors. Since it is applied directly onto the interior of the window, it also doesn’t get as dirty and dusty. It won’t require as much maintenance. You’ll often find that all it takes is a small change to a tint-friendly window cleaning solution.

As if that wasn’t enough, window film can easily be applied to existing buildings. They improve the insulating capacity of normal windows by up to a whopping 92%! This is regardless of whether you have single-pane, double-pane, or even triple-pane windows.

There’s no doubt about it. Although exterior shade systems can be great, low-e window film takes the cake when it comes to energy efficiency.

5 Reasons to get a Window Tint this Summer

Summer is a great time for your family. Your kids are out of school so all of you can take a trip to the beach and camping together! However, you need to be aware of the risk of excessive exposure to invisible UV rays. That’s why you use sunscreens, but what about when you’re at home? If your home windows aren’t tinted yet, then this summer might be a good time for it. Let’s see why.

Help Prevent Cancer

Excessive sun exposure can result in the development of skin cancer in family members of all ages. The most dangerous thing about it is that you might not even know that it’s happening, as you’re just enjoying the warmth. Window films can block up to 99% of harmful UV rays that come through the window, drastically reducing the risk of skin cancer and other skin diseases from sun exposure.

 Reduce Glare

 Summertime is the time that families gather together to enjoy their favourite TV shows during the day, but the fun can’t be had if the only thing on screen is the huge, bright sun. Not only that it’s not enjoyable to watch, but intense screen glare can also be harmful to the eyesight, especially for young children. Window films can reduce the amount of light that enters and gets reflected on glassy and shiny surfaces in your home. You can enjoy your time together as a family without having to worry about ruining your eyesight!

 Protect Furniture and Flooring from Fading

 Furniture needs protection from the sun too. Materials like leather, wood, and plastic can be prone to light and heat damage, as they can become warped, discoloured, faded, or cracked. You could close your curtains to block out the sun, but if your curtain is too thick, then your room might become too dark. It’s already a chore to take care of your home appliance, you don’t need more of it. Tinting your windows can help you to keep your furniture looking neat and clean without requiring extra care.

Reduce Energy Consumption and Costs 

The windows are where the heat from the outside comes in from, and they don’t leave. Your AC will need to work extra hard during these months to get rid of this heat and replace it with cool air. If you’ve ever had to pay a large electric bill during the summer months, then you know that it’s painful to spend your money like that. Window films help block out the heat reducing the workload of your AC, as well as your spendings.

 Enjoy Additional Privacy 

If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable from the prying eyes of the passersby, then you might want to consider getting your windows tinted. Window films block out the outside-in vision to a large degree, making it very difficult for people to see what’s on the other side of the window. This increases both the privacy and safety of your home, as you will deter the burglars from targeting your home. Thieves know that they are at risk when they are out at night, and they want reassurance that their risk will be rewarded. An obscure view of what’s inside the window is the opposite of a reassurance.

The 3M’s security window film is what will achieve the level of security that you need in case of an emergency. Here’s how plastic does this.

How to Choose the Right Commercial Window Film

Every day, more companies choose to outfit their office windows with window film. There are so many benefits to take advantage of that business owners just can’t deny. Some of the reasons that businesses choose to apply film to their windows are because it’s cost-effective, it makes the workplace more comfortable, it enhances safety and security, and it extends the lifespan of furniture and equipment inside.

There are so many good things that commercial window tint can do for your workplace. You will be able to enjoy bright natural sunlight without having to worry about annoying glare and dangerous UV rays. The temperature of your office will be more pleasant and your windows will look amazing from the outside. You will even save money on energy bills!

There are several film colors, darkness, and styles that you can choose from. The options you have will depend on your purpose to install the film. Let’s look at a couple different types of window tint and what type of businesses they would be good for.


Is there a lot of sun in your area? If so, you probably know that the large windows that allow so much beautiful sunlight in also makes the desks nearby incredibly hot. A lot of people also experience glare in their workspaces. Because employees aren’t comfortable, they won’t be working as efficiently.

This is where solar window film comes in. This type of window tint allows that great natural light to come in, while making sure your employees aren’t bothered by glare and dangerous UV rays. They can enjoy a beautiful environment while still being comfortable in a corporate office.


This type of window film is made to keep high amounts of heat from penetrating your glass and making the interior hot. If your business requires a work environment at a cooler temperature but still wants to enjoy natural light, this is the film for you. It’s also great for companies that need to control the temperature indoors or businesses that prioritize a cool, comfortable environment.


If you’re a creative company, decorative window film is the one for you. Your company is based on aesthetics and creativity, and what better way to give off that impression than to have a stylish office building? It’s a good way to make a statement while still enjoying the practical benefits of window film. It will filter the light coming in through your windows while keeping you trendy and fresh.


This type of window film is great for companies that sell valuable goods. If you are a bank, a gallery, a jewelry store, or anything of the like, this may be the one for you. If you choose, you can get a transparent protective window film so that people can still clearly see inside the glass. However, the glass won’t break very easily and even if it does, it often won’t shatter.

This is a great way to add a level of security to your goods. It reinforces breakable windows and glass cases while still allowing great visibility. Additionally, it will keep UV rays out so the goods inside are not damaged.


Some businesses may not want to be seen at all. If that is your case, then opt for reflective window film. It keeps the temperature comfortable and the UV rays out while making sure people cannot peer inside. It also makes your windows look a lot more expensive and classy.

This is a great option for, say, a bakery that is concealing the baking process. Instead of having your employees work in a closed off dark room, allow them to enjoy natural light while still keeping operations hidden.

Whatever your purpose for getting window tint, there is sure to be one to fit your needs. You can enjoy an aesthetic, comfort, and security upgrade in a lot less than it would take to completely replace your windows. Want to know what the best option for your business would be?
