If your vehicle has window tint, you know how effective it can be at blocking out the sun’s powerful UV light. Window tint for commercial businesses is more common today than it was in the past. Today’s window tint can also be combined with security film and storefront graphics for an added benefit.

Sun Control of Minnesota is proud to partner with 3M for its versatility and innovation to provide commercial window tint throughout the Twin Cities region. We believe the best window tint application represents the ideal combination of precision, quality manufacturing, product knowledge, and installation experience. In this blog post, we’ll share the top benefits of commercial window tint.

Here are just a few benefits for your office or retail establishment:

  1. Commercial window tint looks professional.

Restaurants and storefronts alike look more polished with window tint. Window tint can be used to create a more modern look while at the same time moderating the lighting inside a business. Bright windows also tend to show every little smudge, while dark ones can help to hide them between cleanings.

  1. It reduces glare and increases work productivity.

There are few things quite as annoying as having to cover your eyes and squint to see the computer monitor or look across the room. If you work with computers or monitors in the workplace, you probably know how frustrating glare can be when it interferes with your work. Window tint dramatically reduces glare in your workspace, making it a more pleasant and comfortable environment overall. It’s also better for your eyes.

  1. Your business will be more secure.

Glass windows might be attractive, but they also represent a point of vulnerability for your business. When combined with security window film, commercial window tinting makes your glass tougher to break.

Vandals and criminals don’t want to draw attention to themselves – they want to get in and get out without getting thrown in jail. Security film requires a lot more effort to break through, buying your business time while your alarm system alerts the police. Criminals are also more likely to give up and move along. For the same reason, security film also provides a layer of added protection against extreme weather and accidental damage.

  1. Window tint protects your furnishings.

As sunlight comes in through your window, solar heat and UV radiation can damage your furnishings, and over time, the effect can be dramatic. If you’ve ever moved your furniture and realized there was a shadow on the floor, this is due to UV solar damage. Solar radiation can cause fading and discoloration to floors, walls, paint, art, furnishings, and more, detracting from your organization’s professional appearance. It can also cause plastics to deteriorate and become brittle. However, commercial window tint blocks the majority of solar radiation, which means your furnishings will look better longer.

  1. It’s safer for your employees and customers.

Just as UV radiation can damage your furnishings, it can also take a toll on the human body, leading to everything from vision health issues to skin aging and even skin cancer. One of the best ways to protect your customers and employees against UV damage is by investing in commercial window tint.

  1. You can take advantage of natural lighting.

Natural lighting is a win for everyone in your business. It helps to reduce your spending on indoor lighting-related energy costs and it creates a healthier workplace for your employees and a more pleasant facility for customers. Commercial window tint allows you to enjoy the sunlight without having to worry about blinds obstructing your view of the world outside.

  1. You’ll pay less on your energy costs.

Solar heat can impact a building’s heating and cooling costs dramatically. If you’re looking for ways to reduce your overall energy costs, window tint can be a key piece of the puzzle. Uneven comfort levels inside your business due to heat near the window invariably means your cooling bills will be too high. In hot summer temperatures, window tint can help to reduce the workload of your HVAC system by moderating the temperature inside your facility. Window tint even has an insulating quality that helps keep heat inside on cold days as well.
