When solar energy enters the earth, it is divided into three wavelengths. The ultraviolet band which measures from 100-400 nanometers is the part of the spectrum that is most responsible for fading out of carpets, drapes, fabrics and paint. The UV band makes up 3% of the solar spectrum. The visible band runs from 380-780 nanometers and is the only part of the solar spectrum actually seen with our eyes. Visible light is 44% of solar energy. The Infrared region is the heat band. We are aware of the heat but unable to see it. The infrared band is made up of 53% solar energy.
When choosing a window film or window tint you must first understand how window tint film works. The heat we feel from the sun comes from three sources. 53% is Infrared Rays (IR), 44% is Visible Light Transmission (VLT) and 3% is Ultra Violet Rays (UV). Most window films block 99% of UV rays because most window films’ UV inhibitors are in the adhesive of the film. In the past, to block a lot of heat you had to have a very dark window film, however, technology has advanced quite a bit over the years. This advanced technology allows for a lighter window film with the high heat rejection qualities of a dark window film. The way heat is blocked and how much is blocked depends on the film and the type of glass you have installed in your home or office.
