But like all windows, skylights let in heat and glare, which comes with that wonderful natural light.

Solar Art has installed plenty of skylight window film, and we are here to walk you through every step of the way! Keep on reading to learn:

Benefits of skylight window film

Tinting skylights is the same process as installing window film on standard windows in residential and commercial settings. The window film is applied directly onto the surface and is designed to block the sun’s heat and light. Skylight film blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays, up to 63% of the sun’s heat, and up to 62% of the sun’s glare. Skylight window tinting keeps your rooms cool and comfortable, reduces glare and harsh reflections while not noticeably darkening your rooms, lowers your electricity bill, and makes your space more energy-efficient.

Knowing what your skylights are made of is extremely important because that will determine what window film is safe to apply to them. Typically, skylights are made of either glass or plexiglass. If your skylights are glass, you are good to go with standard window film. However, if your skylights are made of plexiglass, standard window film won't adhere to them. If your skylights are plexiglass, don't worry, we offer a few different window films that work great on plexiglass skylights! Hanita offers two window films for plexiglass called PolyZone SkyLite and Silver Poly. These are both extreme heat-blocking window films that will make your space noticeably cooler and significantly reduce glare. Llumar also has a window film that will adhere to plexiglass called Dusted Crystal Poly. This is more of a decorative window film than solar film. It is a translucent window film that will increase privacy and add a design factor.  

How Solar Art can help install window film to your skylights

Being as skylights are in the ceiling, they may pose a challenge to get to and can make knowing what they are made from difficult. When it comes to glass skylights, there are both interior and exterior window film options, so regardless of access, you're covered. Plexiglass skylight installations are usually interior installations, where access normally isn't an issue. But, if you have an exterior installation, we've got your back. Solar Art will work with you to determine what your skylights are made of, what skylight film is appropriate, and whether an interior or exterior installation is needed. Knowing the shape of your skylights is also very important to know. Regardless of being glass or plexiglass, only flat surfaces can have window film installed. Acrylic dome-shaped skylights cannot have any window film applied because they won't adhere to the shape.
