commercial window film

Contractors need quality products that they can depend on to perform and keep a customer happy. Many times, a happy customer can be the life blood of a successful contractor. If the customer receives a quality product that performs the way that it is expected, they will spread the word. No referral is better that than word of mouth. 

Now, consider commercial window film. This is a product that has numerous benefits, is easy to work with, and has large profit margins. There is a joke in the window film industry that “the only product with a higher profit margin than window film is movie theater popcorn.” 


Window films are a type of window treatment applied to windows and glass surfaces, designed to reduce the amount of solar heat transmitted through the glass and increase safety and security. The films help increase solar reflectivity, reject solar heat, and reduce incoming ultraviolet light. 

There is a laundry list of benefits that window film will provide. Understanding what window film can and can’t do is one of the most important messages to communicate to a potential customer. If they are expecting the moon, give them the moon without promising the sun. Some of the most basic advantages are:

  • Improved comfort
  • Increased privacy
  • Increased fade protection
  • Reduced glare 
  • Increased safety and security
  • Reduces utility costs
  • Blocks up to 99 percent of UV rays

According to Jody Knight, owner of Liberty Tint Solution Fort Mill, South Carolina, “My customers are reporting an average of 22 percent energy savings after professionally installed window film. As a business owner, I enjoy using a trusted brand that offers piece of mind to me and my customers. I know I am using a brand that puts quality first.” 


There are many types of architectural window film, such as solar security, safety security, decorative, and UV rejections; each are designed with a special purpose. With so many options, this can be a deterrent in getting started. It’s best to educate yourself and focus on a couple. Pick three or four films that perform well, look great, and only show those to potential clients. Call the manufacturer and ask which of their films sells the best. This way, when you have 35 feet left over from a job, it’s probably the type you’ll use on the next one.

When it comes to building a commercial structure and knowing the cost of ownership, taking into account the materials used and the overall design become important variables. How many points of entry, how many floors, how many windows, etc. Any opening in the outside structural building component can impede heating and cooling integrity. 

Reduce utility costs while reinforcing the durability, value, and style of your build. How can this be accomplished? One solution to consider is the Scorpion Architectural Series of commercial window film; glass protection is just one of the many advantages. 

Reduce damaging glare and use our built-in solar control to achieve greater energy efficiency overall. Choose from several decorative options of commercial and residential window film, each designed to enhance the visual statement of your home or office design.

Apartment complexes have oversized sliding glass doors and windows that permit direct sunlight. When the sun’s rays find their way in, they heat up the spaces and hike utility bills. This gives the HVAC system a hard time trying to regulate temperature inside your home or car.

According to statistics by the International Window Film Association, professionally installed window film can minimize cooling costs by as much as 30 percent. It can also minimize unwanted solar heat gain by more than 80 percent.

So, how do window films help? They provide shading, thus dramatically lower the amount of energy needed to keep your home or office comfortable. The film helps to regulate the heat inside and plays a crucial role in lowering these energy costs.


To prolong the life of your HVAC system, lower your energy bills, and enjoy all the benefits that window film has to offer, you need to involve a professional to do the installation. Scorpion Automotive Window Film is exactly what you need.
