Privacy Window Tinting For Your for Norman Home

By Blog

privacyNorman Window Film gets many questions from customers about tinting their house windows for privacy. There is a lot of confusion about what exactly can be accomplished with residential window film so hopefully we can help clear things up a bit.

When customers call and ask about privacy film for their Norman home, they ask about getting dark tint, many times called “limo” tint. It is important to understand is no matter how dark the window film is,  you will still be able to see in at night when the lights are on. We also explain that dark films cause windows to absorb excessive heat and can damage the glass. This is the problem with using “limo” film on residential windows. Extremely dark film on home windows can be risky for this reason.

We like to offer to customers other options including one-way film. One-way film has a dark appearance on the inside, but has a mirror or silver appearance look on the outside which provides excellent privacy without damage to the glass.


Other options for residential privacy window tinting are to install a semi-metallic film for daytime privacy. You can see outside during the day, however, seeing outside at night will be limited. Another option would be to go with a decorative film such as a frost, whiteout or blackout film. These types of film offer privacy both day and night from both directions. Frosted and whiteout films are safe for interior application while blackout films can be safely applied to the exterior surface of the windows unless your glass is single-pane and tempered. Frosted films are great because they offer the privacy many customers are looking for while still allowing some natural light in.

Norman window film has hundreds of film options to help you achieve privacy in your home. We also have solar, security and decorative films as well. Give us a call and our experts will be happy to bring out our film catalogs and provide a free estimate.

By Blog

sun protection1I am starting to experience the winter blues or winter blahs. Whatever you want to call it, I am ready for spring, summer and SUN! With the warmer temperatures and more exposure to the sun with the new seasons approaching, you probably put on sunscreen when you spend the day outside. However, how often do you protect yourself from sun exposure when you are hanging out inside your house?

There is more and more evidence showing it is still possible to be exposed to even low-level UV rays when you are inside your home or office through a window. This may not seem like a big deal to you but over time, damage can accumulate quickly and can have harmful health issues for you.

There have been several studies that found people who spend a lot of time in their cars or by windows with no protection are more likely to develop skin cancer on the side of their face or body that is exposed.

An Invisible Shield of Protection

By Blog

Safety Films offer 24/7 protection from broken glass caused by accidents, vandalism, Mother Nature and forced entry.

We just completed another successful window film installation in Norman and this time it is security film instead of solar film. Security film is becoming a much requested product out of our Llumar window film products due to home invasions and robberies. This Norman customer moved here recently from the LA area where she had security film on her home. When she moved to Norman, Oklahoma, security film was one of the first things she wanted to make sure she had installed in her new home.  She told us she didn’t feel safe and couldn’t sleep at night until she had security film on her windows.

The film we installed on this Norman home was an 8 MIL film and completely clear…..You can’t even tell it is there. Not only will this window film help our Norman customer  with forced entry, it will also give her additional safety from wind borne debris along with hail stones and shattered pieces of glass becoming daggers that can cause serious injury. The Llumar safety and security film is engineered with powerful adhesives designed to keep the broken pieces of glass together and making it very difficult for someone to penetrate. With Llumar safety film being a totally transparent film and providing a powerful barrier that maintains the windows full structure it is a great choice for safety and peace of mind.
