How Do You Tint Big Commercial Windows?
Hey, commercial real estate owners in Texas! Do you need a way to give your commercial building a fresh look? We have two words: window tint. Here's a glimpse into the Amersol process and why leaving it to the pros is the way to go.
Step 1: Ready, Set, Prep!
Before the tint, windows must be squeaky clean. That means no dirt, dust, or anything lurks on the surface. Even though these particles are small, they can cause quality issues.
Step 2: Measured To Perfection
To ensure a fit like a glove, we allow for a little "extra" and trim the window film on-site for precision. And with greater flexibility, you can choose from various commercial window films that help you achieve your desired outcome.
For example, reflective film boosts energy efficiency. It acts as a mirror against the harsh sun, deflecting much of its heat and glare. UV protection film helps protect against harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause fading. Security film helps protect against breakage and damages from blunt force, whether perpetrated by persons or acts of nature.
Step 3: The Deep Clean
Cleaning is a double-act. First, we tackle the edges to remove any old adhesive, gunk, or debris. Then, the glass gets a spa treatment with a gentle cleaning solution. We follow it with a blade to scrape off stubborn particles like paint or other residue.
Step 4: The Main Event - Tint Time!
Now comes the real magic. We peel off the backing and apply the film to your just-cleaned window. A spritz of water or a solution activates the adhesive, and voila! Your windows are tinted.
Step 5: Trim and Tidy
After the film is on, any trapped air bubbles get smoothed out. The next step is trimming the excess film and squeezing out lingering water droplets.
Step 6: The Waiting Game For Big Commercial Windows
After application, the windows will need some time to "cure." You may notice minor puddles or a hazy look; it's all part of the process and will clear up. Depending on the environment, this can take several days to a month.
