Privacy without blocking your view!

There are few things more annoying than having your neighbors or people walking by staring through your windows. Closing the blinds or drawing the curtains works, but it also eliminates your view outside. When people think of getting more privacy on their windows without blocking their view, window privacy tint comes to mind.

There is a better solution though; EZ Snap™ exterior shades.

EZ Snap Sun Shades Block Heat Not ViewLet’s compare.
Both window tinting privacy film and EZ Snap™ shades will give you daytime privacy from the outside. Both do this without blocking your view from the inside. So what’s the big difference?

Evening Views
At night time, the window privacy film turns your windows into giant mirrors, making it hard to see through to the outside. The reflective qualities of the film are now working against you and reflecting back all your interior lighting. EZ Snap exterior shades do not do this at all and so you still  can enjoy your night time views.

End Bird Strikes
Another big advantage of using EZ Snap™ exterior shades over a window privacy film, is that it prevents bird strikes into your windows. As mentioned in our previous blogs topics, privacy or reflective window tint, actually increases the likelihood of birds flying into your windows. Privacy window film makes your windows more reflective. It’s the reflectivity of the window that makes the glass invisible to flying birds. EZ Snap™ makes the window look like a solid surface to flying birds and so they do not fly into it. So now you know how to increase your privacy and reduce bird strikes at the same time.

Place approximately 12 inches apart on the lens of the skylight.

AirFlo™ Spacers are recommended for all Dome Skylights or Skylights with Plastic Lens.

To use: Place the spacers approximately 12 inches apart or how every many
would be required to keep the mesh from laying on the skylight lens.

Why do we suggest the AirFlo Spacers: Many dome skylights are quality, "Made in America" skylights, but unfortunately there are
a lot of skylights on the market now that are made off-shore. In very hot weather, these poorly made skylight lens can develop crazing or imperfections in the
plastic of the skylight lens. This is caused by an excessive heat build-up in the sub-standard plastic lens.
The AirFlo™ spacers lift the shading mesh off of the lens of the skylight, allowing the excess heat to dissipate.

NOTE: Using AirFlo Spacers will slightly increase the size of the dimensions of the shading mesh you will need.

If you are confident that you have a quality built dome skylight, then these spacers
are probably not necessary for your project, but if you are unsure, better to be safe than sorry.

The Primer Pen is used for applications where it is necessary to increase the surface adhesion of the EZ Snap stud.

Contains a 3M Clear, Colorless primer. Enough to prime the surface area for approximately 50 studs.

To use: Shake the pen well before using.
A gentle squeeze 1″ in from the felt tip, ruptures the inner membrane, allowing the contents to be easily dispensed.
Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface.
Dries clear. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying the studs. This takes approximately 5 minutes at room temperature.
Extremely porous surfaces may need a second application for uniform coverage and good adhesion.

TIP: Make a template, cut-out to the same size as the stud.
This prevents wasting primer by only priming the area that the stud will bond to.
**As with all primer type products, test on small area first to ensure it is compatible with surface.
