Our windows let in too much…
- Sun glare – it’s hard to see our computer screens.
- Summer heat – our office is uncomfortable to work in.
- Winter cold – our heating bills are enormous.
- UV radiation – our skin is exposed and it’s fading our soft furnishings.

But don’t take our word for it – here’s how office tinting works in real work environments.
Selecting the Right Window Film for your Office Windows in Melbourne
Whether your workplace is large or small how can you be sure your installer is selecting the right film for your office windows?
A quality window tinting company will assess 3 things:
- The type of glass in your windows
- The direction your windows are facing i.e., north, south, east or west.
- Your existing window coverings and external shading – if you have any.
Professional commercial window tinters can assess your glass type and thickness using laser tools. Depending on your glass type – heat toughened, laminated, double glazed, tinted, Low E coated the most compatible film to meet your specific needs can be recommended. This is the quality service Solar Window Filmers provides.
Most internally installed solar films come with a 10 – 15-year commercial warranty. Externally applied window films are an option in Melbourne when office windows are hard to access from the inside or the glass is not compatible with internally applied films. Externally applied films are designed to withstand Melbourne’s weather and come with a 5 – 7year quality warranty.
How Much Does it Cost for Professional Tinting on my Office Windows?
The main 2 factors considered when providing a window tinting quote in office buildings are:
1.The type of film you’re after – solar heat rejecting film (average price $60m2) or premium year round insulating film (average price $ 160m2).
2.The degree of difficulty of the install – access issues, size of windows, cleaning required, type of glass and type of frames (average price $25m2)
Is Commercial Tinting the Same as Residential Tinting?
The same range of films are available for office window tinting as home window tinting however darker more reflective films are more commonly used in an office – as these are the higher performing solar control films.
For home window tinting the internal light and external aesthetics are of greater importance and so we offer a range of films with lower degrees of external reflectivity and lighter tints for residential applications.
For both applications, Solar Window Filmers offer the most comprehensive professional tinting service.
