While we may generally think of window tinting when it comes to automobiles, plenty of businesses and homeowners benefit from window tinting in many ways. Tinting increases energy efficiency, lowering costs, which can be appealing for any business or home. This service could also benefit schools, which already deal with dwindling budgets and issues of student, staff, and faculty safety. Schools may not be the first thing to come to mind when considering the target demographic for window tinting, but there are several reasons to consider it for your school. Here are just some of the many benefits of window tinting for schools.
Many classrooms are outfitted with far more than the traditional chalkboard. Most schools employ a variety of technology in the classroom including smart boards, laptop computers, and tablets. All of these devices can be difficult to see in bright, direct sunlight. Tinted windows in the classroom can alleviate glare getting in the way of students’ learning, and even cut down on distractions in the classroom by bringing their learning devices into better focus. Plus, window tinting will allow for natural light, unlike blinds, while still dramatically cutting down glare.
Window tint reflects much solar light and heat rather than letting it all into the room. This allows the room to better maintain a constant temperature. For instance, if a classroom doesn’t heat up as much in the spring, summer, and early fall due to the sunlight in the windows, then less energy needs to be spent to run fans or air conditioning. Budgets in schools are decreasing constantly, so temperature control may not be a viable option for spending in many schools. This energy efficiency saves money, but it also benefits students to have a comfortable classroom. When students are at a comfortable temperature due to decreased heat exposure, they will be less likely to get distracted and may have a much better time focusing in class.
Safety and Security
The safety of students, teachers, and staff is of the utmost importance. As such, there are several options beyond simple window film that can benefit schools in hazardous or emergency situations. A product called safety film reinforces windows in case of any damage, allowing for better safety measures to be taken in schools for a cost-effective price.
Decoration & Branding
Window tinting doesn’t have to be purely utilitarian. Beyond its functional uses, window film can be used in a number of decorative ways on walls in classrooms and hallways alike. Keeping a creative environment in schools is important, and decorating is included in that. Window tinting film is available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors to achieve the right look in your school.
