Things to consider before tinting
Adding a solar control film to any glass will absorb additional heat into the glass. However, this depends on a number of factors.
1. The type of glass
Solar control film is not suitable for certain types of glass. If the glass is wired or double paned glass, you will need a professional assessment to see if the glass is susceptible to thermal stress breakage. This is what happens when the glass temperature varies from the edge to the centre of the glass so much, that it causes the glass to crack. Different glass types have different breaking points, so seek professional advice if you are unsure of the type of glass in your home. If the glass is laminated or tempered (toughened) glass, it is generally marked with a stamp or a sticker on the edge of the glass. Tempered glass has almost 0% chance of suffering a thermal stress break.

Temperature difference between point A and point B (hottest to coldest) will determine breakage point of glass.
