Window Film for Office Building's in Colorado

Keeping your office staff happy and comfortable is a key element in any successful business. Window Tint in your Commercial Office Building in Colorado can do just that! American workers spend a majority of daylight hours at work. In many cases, we have come to think of it as our “home away from home”.  The biggest difference between your home and your office is you have control over the thermostat at home. Whereas at work, you probably don’t! Office temperatures being too hot or too cold,  can greatly affect the quality of the work your staff produces.  All American Window Tinting in Colorado offers window film solutions for your Commercial office building that help keep the heat in during the colder months and heat out during the warmer months. Helping keep your work environment comfortable year round!
Window film and window tint technology are not the same as it was 20 or so years ago. In the past dark colors were added to window films to help absorb heat and damaging UV rays. Sometimes metals were added to the window tints to reflect heat and harmful UV rays. That meant if you wanted to reduce heat in your building you would lose natural light from the windows. This was counterproductive because the answer was to add more interior lighting. Which in turn created more heating issues because light bulbs generate heat.  With advanced technologies window film manufacturers now use absorbing metals and materials that have reflectors we cannot see. These advanced technologies will help reduce the amount of natural light that is lost when window tint is applied.
Did you know natural light and artificial lighting has a significant impact on our moods throughout the day (WebMD)? This detail is especially important in large office buildings where people work in very close proximity to each other.  Natural lighting through windows is said to have a very calming and peaceful effect on our moods and emotions.
Even increasing alertness and metabolism. Whereas lack of light (dark windows) and even poor artificial lighting can trigger depression, eyestrain and in some cases migraines. Spectrally Select Window films will reduce and/or retain the temperatures in an office building with little effect on the natural light that enters a space.  Help keep your office staff upbeat and on task with window tint on the windows in your office in Colorado.
Everyone wants the office with the large windows or the desk next to the large windows. In fact, the newest trend in energy efficiency is large windows that allow natural light into a space. Large windows help eliminate the need for a lot of artificial lighting which can help with energy savings. Typical office windows block most UVB rays. Which is why normally you won’t get a sunburn while sitting at your desk.  What about UVA rays? Typical Clear glass only blocks a small portion of UVA rays through, so even if you don’t feel you are getting sunburned, your skin may still become damaged (American Cancer Society). UVA rays are the most intense because they penetrate deep into the skin's thickest layer. This can lead to premature aging, wrinkling, and even skin Cancer. So while the natural sunlight may brighten your mood,  UVA rays are damaging your skin and possibly even suppressing your immune system.  Window film on the windows in your office will reduce at least 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Helping eliminate the risks of Skin Cancer, premature aging and in some cases even depression!
Another potential problem with the coveted window seat is Glare. Too much glare on your computer screen can cause issues with workflow. Some may think blinds is the only answer. Since we have already determined that sunlight can affect your mood. Closing yourself in with blinds can make for a long, unhappy day. Window tint on the windows in your office can help eliminate the need for blinds by reducing the harsh sunlight to a more comfortable level.  Window film will allow you to continue to enjoy your view and still be able to actually see your computer screen!

Window Tint is Sunscreen for your Windows!

Window Tint on your car, home and office windows has many more benefits than just reducing heat and glare and providing privacy. Think of Window tint as a sunscreen for your windows. In the Winter month’s most people don’t think about sunscreen but you should. It's cold, it's snowy and you don't think the sun is causing much damage.
 In Colorado, we get over 300 days of sunshine a year. So even though it is chilly outside, the sun is still shining brightly. If you stand in the right spot you can actually feel the warmth from the sun. We get the best of both worlds but we also have a bit more to worry about because we get so much sunshine and we have a higher altitude.
In high altitudes and in winter months, the sun's UV rays are actually increased. Exposure is increased because of the decreased atmosphere and because the sun’s UV rays reflect and/or bounce off the snow and back at you.  That means those damaging UV rays actually hit you twice! Double Whammy, Snow Burn! Rays account for up to 95 percent of UV rays that reach the Earth’s surface, they penetrate deeper into skin, cause wrinkles, and are the culprit for melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer. When elevation increases so do the sun's strength. The thinner atmosphere absorbs fewer UV rays, allowing them to pass through to the Earth much easier and with much more power, this greatly increases the risk of exposure. When living or vacationing in high altitudes, it is extremely important that you take extra precautions to protect yourself from the sun's harmful UV rays. UVA 
Many places have an abundance of snow in the Winter months. When the sun's UVA rays bounce off the snow it creates an effect similar to being at the beach. These rays can be very intense and act the same throughout the year penetrating clouds and yes, even glass. Even just a few minutes of sun exposure during the day can wreak havoc. Not only on your skin but on the Interiors of your Home, Office, and Car. Over time those minutes add up and can cause noticeable changes to the skin, such as freckles, age spots, spider veins on the face, blotchy complexion, and fine wrinkles. Also causing cracking to car interiors and fading on floors and furniture. From repeated exposure to the sun's harmful rays, this photo aging process is inevitable and the only way to prevent it is by shielding yourself from the sun. Use a stronger sunblock during the winter months and in higher altitude and apply a window tint on your car, home, and office windows.
The most neglected area of exposure to the sun is glass! Many people feel that their glass alone is enough protection from the sun's harmful rays. This is absolutely WRONG!. Glass can actually magnify the effects of the sun most notably called the greenhouse effect. It can make a home, office and car interior even hotter. The UV rays are still permeating inside and are coming in contact with you and the things you love most. Protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun with window film applications on your home, office or vehicle. Window film can block up to 99% of UV rays! With the application of window tint, you can be confident you are receiving the protection you need all year round.
All of the window tint options we carry reduce 99% o UV rays. Helping significantly reduce the risks from sun exposure. You don't have to black out your windows to receive these benefits. Limo tint reduces the same amount of UV rays as an 85% film. Take preventative action now, you can never be too safe, make the necessary changes to protect yourself and your loved ones against UV rays passing through your glass. At All American Window Tinting, Inc., we provide professional window film installations for your home, office or vehicle. Take advantage of the benefits that window film has to offer and call our office today at 303-936-1362 and start protecting the things you love most!

Reasons for needing window tint, even in the winter

Although there are many people who don’t mind the heat and get their cars tinted strictly for looks, the majority of us just despise that scorching heat or blinding sun that never fails to make those stop-and-go drives to work that much more exasperating, even in the winter. But there are actually even more reasons why tinting windows is a great thing to invest in. Today’s window films are very effective in reducing heat, up to 60%, which really makes a difference on those scorching hot summer days. Unfortunately, heat is only something we have to deal with about 50% of the time. What about the other 50% of time when it is anywhere from a comfortable temperature to cold? Well, if the sun is out, there are still Ultra Violet rays being absorbed by your skin and this is not a good thing. Living in Colorado, we get over 300 days of sun a year, many of which are also in the winter. A lot of the sun’s heat is reduced in the winter because of the cold air, but the Ultra Violet rays that fade upholstery, cause sunburn and skin cancer are actually amplified 85-90% when there is snow on the ground because the rays reflect off of the snow and back at you (SSA). Ultra Violet rays don’t only cause short term problems like sunburn but is also the main cause of premature visible skin aging such as wrinkles and age spots (IWFA), which is enough of a reason for many to want to avoid these dangerous rays and get window tint applied to their vehicles. UV exposure is also worse the higher in altitude you are. That being said, here in Colorado we are more likely to suffer from premature visible aging, sunburned or even worse, skin cancer which has also been linked to melanoma, compared to other states.
0200Another one of the many reasons one would consider window tinting is to reduce energy costs. Yes, its true, applying tint to windows can actually reduce energy costs up to 50% (Gila) which is a lot of money over time. When there is heat hitting your window from outside, the heat travels through the glass and transfers to the air and other objects that may be in contact with the window. This is called the heat conduction process. If tint is applied to the glass, it’s critically designed qualities allow it to reject a significant amount of UV rays, much more then glass alone (IWFA). Because of the material used to create the film it is able to reflect more light than the glass would have been able to otherwise, reducing glare, brightness, and even more heat. Because conduction is not happening as rapidly with the window tint applied, the air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to cool down the air that is getting heated by the window through the conduction process. This also works the other way around during the winter by keeping cold outside air from conducting thought the window to the warm air inside.
0109One of the least known uses for tint is to prevent breakage and provide safety if the glass is ever broken. Annealed (untreated regular) glass is not very strong and when broken can be very dangerous and even fatal due to the irregular shaped, sharp shards that it creates when it breaks. Applying tint to a window adds additional strength and keeps shattered glass intact if broken, preventing large shards from flying through the air causing injury. Even with treated or tempered glass which breaks into small squares, tint would be beneficial because it not only adds thickness to the glass making it stronger, it also acts as a protective layer preventing it from scratching and chipping over time which are all things that could happen regardless if it is summer or winter. These are just a few reasons why it is still beneficial to get tint applied in the winter.

Securing Your Glass

Security film or shatter resistant film has gained more notoriety over the past few years due to it’s various uses.  Shatter resistant film, sometimes called glass fragment retention film is an optically clear, multilayer, polyester film that bonds to the inside of the window to reinforce the glass and help hold it in place upon impact. Stores, home and even schools are seeing an increase in break-ins and violent acts making security film another precaution to consider. To read more about our security film in schools, CLICK HERE.  Another use of security film, one that is often overlooked, is it’s application to annealed glass. 

Safety/security film applied to annealed glass can meet safety glazing standards that are in place. In the early 1970’s, the U.S. Government initiated legislative action to establish commercial building codes, requiring the installation of tempered glass in glazing systems exposed to high injury risk; such as doors of all types, glass partitions, etc. Not too long after, similar codes would be extended to residential buildings and glazing systems.  The reason for the change in legislation was due to the way the glass broke.  Annealed glass is cooled slowly, producing a strong glass but not as strong as tempered glass.  When annealed glass breaks, it breaks into various sizes that can be harmful to a person.  Tempered glass is cooled quickly during the manufacturing process and when broken, it shatters into small pieces, making it safer should impact occur.

If an annealed glass pane needs to be changed to a tempered pane, the cost to replace it would be over $600 dollars.  Applying security film to annealed glass would cost half the amount of complete replacement. When safety/security film is applied to annealed glass, it will meet the safety glazing standards that are in place.  Saving money by not replacing the glass is not the only benefit of applying security film to your windows.  Security and safety film offers solar and UV protection as well as glare reduction. The advantages to this film outweigh the stress of a complete glass replacement and is a great substitute to meet safety glazing standards.

Preserving Our History

The culture, artifacts, and stories of our past are our link to the history of our nation.  Historic buildings can be the most recognizable structure of a city, creating a connection with the city and it’s citizens, both past and present.

In 1966, Congress founded the National Historic Preservation Act which is intended to preserve historical and archeological sites in the United States of America.  While the purpose behind preserving efforts was initially used for drive patriotism and turn structures into museums in order the generate tourism, the focus soon changed.  In today’s society, the motivation for preservation is generally broken down into three categories:
1. to retain elements of the past
2. to commemorate the distinctive identities of places
3. practice a conservation approach to environmental change

While there are stipulations to changing the appearance of a historic building, applying window film to the windows of historic buildings promotes a green approach to retain elements of the past.  With advancements in technology, high performance window films were created within the last 20 years, enabling high heat rejection levels while keeping the visible light reflection anywhere from 8 to 12 percent.  These films do not alter the appearance of historic buildings because of their low visible reflectivity levels.  Glare is another factor that is reduced significantly; anywhere from 34 to 64 percent dependent on window film selection.  While rejecting 99- 99.9% of UV rays, window film aids in the deterrence of the fading of valuables.   When these buildings were created, insulation was minimal.  Approximately, 25% of a building’s heat loss escapes through the windows and window film can reduce the amount of heat that escapes.  During the hotter months, when solar energy enters the building, without film on the windows, hot spots are created in the home which increase the amount energy consumed due to cooling costs. By reducing the amount of heat entering the home, the consumption of energy is reduced. When window film is professionally installed, a building is saving up to 30% on cooling expenses.
