Tint film for wind mitigation
Method 1: In high elevation areas that experience a lot of wind, like a high-rise on a beach in a windy area, glass breaking under wind pressure is a risk. This can cause a lot of damage and is also obviously expensive. As a way to “anchor” glass in place, tint film can be reinforced with silicone around the perimeter of the film - upon an engineer’s request. Often this is done on older windows as a way to strengthen the windows. Instead of installing your film all the way to the edges, you can instead leave a small light gap and then cover it with silicon. This means an easier tint job because you don’t have to deal with the dirtiness of the edges. The job of sealing may be left up to a glazer rather than the tinter. The color of the silicon will depend on the color of the surrounding area.
