If the wrong film is applied to the glass thermal stress breakage can occur. How do you know which films are safe? A professional window film company will have a chart to follow from the manufacturer of the film to know which films are safe for your type of glass. Thermal stress is typically due to too much absorption of the solar heat by the window glass. The breakage will usually occur on cold, sunny days where the glass sees a large shift in temperature very rapidly. The condition of the glass and frame, any shadowing on the glass and altitude are all additional factors.

Please keep in mind that millions of windows have film applied every year with no issues. If there is a stress point on the glass or a bad edge inside the frame the extra stress with film applied will bring out any weaknesses. If it were all the fault of the film every window would break...

Good manufacturer's will warranty the replacement of glass due to thermal stress breakage so you will not have to pay for the glass to be replaced or re-filmed. Happy to help where I can if you have some more information on the type of film installed, how long ago, etc.

If you are still looking to have tinted windows without the film then you should consider our suntuitive self tinting windows. Our windows tint from the heat of the sun so they are tinted when you need them to be and clear when you don't! Our windows are some of the most energy efficient windows on the market. They allow you to preserve your view, block harmful UV rays and help reduce excess heat gain. Be careful when considering film applications as they can often void your windows warranty or cause them to crack from the intense heat.
