The Benefits of Privacy Window Film for Architects

November 30, 2018

As an architect, your job is to take the vision of a client and find a practical, concrete way to bring them to life. It’s a careful balancing act of implementing the ideas of the client with your industry expertise and recommendations. You need to consider what the finished product will be used for, who will be using it, and what kinds of resources you’ll need to provide the best experience for your client.

While not the first thing you need to consider when designing an architectural blueprint, the glass materials that will make up the interior and exterior windows is still one of the more important decisions you’ll have to make.

There are a lot of options to pick from, but when you implement privacy film for windows into your architectural vision, you’ll not only conserve energy, but also increase client privacy, minimize the potential for damages, and create a uniform aesthetic for the entire building.

Preserve Energy

Using privacy window films in your architectural designs are just as much about substance as they are about style. When you outfit your windows with privacy window film, the buildings you design will be better insulated to keep in the interior heating and air-conditioning, meaning that you’ll keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Window films enhance the insulations of your building’s windows, reduces exposure to harsh lighting or glare, and ultimately provides the building with year-round benefits, as your client will be saving money on their heating and cooling bill regardless of the season.

An Increase in Privacy

Before window film, architects had to rely on traditional window dressings like curtains, blinds, or window tint if they wanted to include privacy in their designs. These days, however, privacy window films can maximize the privacy of a space without needing to compromise on lighting or aesthetic appeal.

Products like LINTEC of America’s VisionControlFilm are even able to provide your interior and exterior windows with a dynamic opacity that changes depending on the angle you’re viewing it from. As your point-of-view changes, so too will the opacity of the glass, meaning some angles will be totally transparent while others will appear as completely frosted. This creates a situation that allows for natural light to filter in through the window film while also creating a sense of privacy for the people inside, giving them the best of both worlds.

Minimize Damages

When you incorporate privacy window films into your architectural projects, you’ll not only be promoting privacy and energy preservation but window strength as well. Applying window film adds an extra layer of protection to the glass that is scratch-resistant, durable, and long-lasting.

A Uniform Aesthetic

Another benefit you’ll get from using privacy window films in your architectural plans is a better, more uniform visual aesthetic. Using a privacy window film can give your building’s exterior, or even its interior rooms, a unique appearance that promotes privacy and can be custom designed to add a splash of style to the design.
