Original Message window tinting
I am not an expert on this topic
either. However, I do know that the
issue with coated windows is not so
much light intensity (measured in
footcandles), but the portion of the
light spectrum that is blocked out by
the coating. There are certain portions
of the light spectrum that are critical
for healthy plant growth. If they are
blocked, then your plants will struggle
regardless of the intensity. Check with
the manufacturer about this. Good luck.
