Among the different fixtures of any property that one could invest in, one that has become more popular in recent years is window film. 

From cost savings and aesthetic appeal to privacy and safety features, it’s easy to see how window films’ benefits have made it such a crucial investment that more landowners are looking into. At this point, you’re probably considering the possibility of adding some window film or replacing the current layers you have, specifically if you’re in a populated part of town!

Thanks to the technological advances that window film manufacturers have been making, property owners are now invited to double down on their window care procedures by replacing their current set-ups with new options. From clear-film options to one-way security tinting (both of which are available at Film Tint NZ), it’s no secret that today’s options are more advanced than ever!

As window film and window treatments continue to grow even more popular and relevant, it’s worth acknowledging that they’re also susceptible to their fair share of myths that need to be debunked.

Debunking two common myths about window film damages

You may not realise it now, but the myths that surround window film treatments and the “damages” that they can bring are most likely hindering you from getting another layer done. These myths are what have erroneously led thousands of Australian property owners to mistakenly avoid getting film treatments.

Thankfully, you can avoid falling for these misconceptions because we’ve broken them down in further detail and debunked them: 


Myth #1: Getting a window film causes the thermal glass to break

While most homeowners consider window film treatments as a factor that’s attributed to applying window film because of the product’s insulating features, the increase in thermal energy isn’t to blame!

From a general perspective, thermal glass mostly ends up breaking or disintegrating because of improper installations of blockages, such as drapes and blinds—with or without window film. Fortunately, you can safely place a film treatment on your property’s thermal glass by consulting with your building contractor on the best approach to take.


Myth #2: Getting a window film treatment increases the risks of window seal failures

We can’t possibly enumerate how many times we’ve gotten this concern from past clients and current customers. But more owners are now concerned that film treatments can cause window failures.

Seen as the favourite argument of most retractors of window tinting, the belief that tinting will spark window seal failures at one point or another is simply not the case. 

You see, insulated windows work by using several panes that are sealed between layers of glass, creating a multiple-pane insulation approach that prevents the outside heat from entering a property. It’s safe to assume that window tinting itself does not come into contact with the seals considering its placement, meaning it isn’t capable of causing such failures.



As widespread as the use of window film tinting is for most properties across Australia, the truth is that it’s still susceptible to its fair share of myths that detractors erroneously believe and spread. Thankfully, you won’t have to mistakenly believe in such myths because keeping this guide in mind will help you keep a clear mind and see the real value of getting some tinting done!
