Protect Your Artificial Turf With A Residential Turf Guard Window Film
Artificial turf is a great way to improve the appearance of your yard. It’s a trendy choice for people who live in hot, dry areas where natural grass is difficult to maintain.
But artificial turf can run into problems that grass doesn’t have. One of the biggest is that when it reaches a high temperature, it begins to melt.
How A Turf Window Film Prevents Melting
Windows can reflect the sun directly onto the artificial turf, causing it to heat twice as much as it would otherwise. Second-story windows can reflect light at an angle that’s too damaging for artificial turf to survive.
Window film stops this. A window film prevents the glass from reflecting light and heat. Instead, the shade absorbs the light. It also keeps the inside of the building cooler and helps with thermal regulation.
You might consider installing a window film on any windows that reflect onto your yard. A professional window film installation service from Tint Solutions can help. Call us for a quote.
Benefits Of Window Film For Turf Protection
These aren’t the only benefits that come from installing window film, though. There are several other reasons to use a window film to protect turf that will help you protect both the inside and outside of your property.
Save On Energy
When you add a film to your windows, you can save on your energy costs. Not only do the windows not reflect sunlight into your yard, but they also prevent sunlight from heating the interior of your home or office.
Windows that have been professionally tinted will keep more of their energy inside. They don’t heat up in the sun, and they don’t lose as much of their air conditioning. That allows you to keep your heat inside during the winter and outside during the summer. Because of this, window films are favored by people who want to save on their monthly energy bills without needing to invest in expensive equipment.
Your turf isn’t the only thing that can be damaged by heat and sunlight. Furniture can fade due to sun exposure over time. But if you use the UV protection of a window film, you don’t have to worry as much about your furniture fading.
A window film can protect artwork, couches, rugs, carpeting, wood, and other parts of your home.
Reduce Indoor UV Exposure
When you open your windows, you can become exposed to the sun’s UV rays, even if you’re inside. Window film can help to protect you from potential sun damage.
It is essential for people who are more at risk of getting sunburnt or having bad reactions to the sun.
Protect Against Breakage
Residential tinting adds a level of protection against window breakage. Some films are specifically designed to add security to windows that won’t easily break if someone tries to damage them.
Films can keep a window from shattering, which also prevents the sharp glass from entering your home. In addition, the strength of the film helps protect the window from breaking in extreme weather conditions like hurricanes.
A window film will remove glare both inside and outside of the building. As mentioned, this prevents the sun from melting your artificial turf.
For those trying to relax at home, it’s a lot easier to watch television when the glare isn’t making it impossible to see.
Window films can add a layer of privacy to a home. You can see out of the windows, but strangers outside can’t see the inside.
It means that it’s a favorable solution for people who want extra privacy in their homes as some people live in the suburbs with a lot of foot traffic.
Types Of Window Film
There are several different types of turf shield window film that can be mounted on the exterior glass of a house. These all let you see through the glass while preventing your grass from melting. You’ll also experience increased thermal efficiency since window films can be seven times more effective than regular blinds.

What is the best place to install turf film?
It’s best to install your film in places that might reflect onto your artificial grass. This anti-reflective measure will help prevent the sunlight from reaching potentially harmful temperatures.
The second-story windows often reflect the most damaging light. They have the most chance to catch and reflect the sun throughout the day. Most artificial grass starts to melt at around 175 F, and it can heat to that temperature very quickly if left in the sun.
