Classic Sun Control Window Film
When many hear the words “window tint” or “window film”, they think of the dark tint that goes on cars and trucks. It makes the windows look dark on the outside and sometimes hard to see out from the inside. This works great for cars to keep the heat out, however, this would not work very well on the windows in your home or business for many reasons. The outdoors are an extension of your home, therefore you want the best and most enjoyable view possible, not hindered by anything dark or unsightly. VISTA Window Film is much different from the window tint that would go on your vehicle. VISTA Window film is a 3-layered polyester material that is sputtered with microscopic metal particles. The end result of this installed on your windows is a virtually invisible film treatment that accomplishes many things: Classic Sun Control Film Diagram

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is It Dark?

Our most popular films are a "neutral" color and almost invisible on the glass

Is It Reflective?

Unless someone requests a highly reflective film, most films we make for residential and small commercial applications are designed with very low reflectivity. Even clear glass reflects at certain times of day at particular angles, and window film reacts similarly.

Will It Scratch?

VISTA Window films are glazed with a special Scratch Resistant (SR) coating that protects the film from normal wear and tear, making cleaning and maintenance trouble and worry free.

Will It Kill My Plants?

On the contrary, most plants do better with window film, because they don't "burn" on harsh sunny days.
