Solar Control Films: Residential/Commercial

What is Window Film?

Window Film is a micro thin composed of polyester and metal coatings bonded by adhesives. It is installed onto the internal surface of the glass to provide significant solar protection. It screens out the heat, blocks out 99% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays and deflects harsh, uncomfortable glare while allowing glare-controlled sunlight to pass through.

  1. Adopts to the changes in the seasons, reflecting the hot sun in the summer, and with Low E film to re-radiate heat in the winter, you can be comfortable all year long.
  2. Window Film helps preserve fabrics, furniture, works of art, wood floors and rugs by filtering out of the harmful UV rays and other characteristics of the sun that contributes to fading, so only the best light of the sun shines through.

Window Film = The clear answer for your home & business.

 

Today’s building utilize more glass than ever before. The trend toward open floor plans, high ceilings and extensive use of glass has become the preferred standard. But glass window are notorious energy wasters, making building owners and managers increasingly concerned about excessive glare, heat build-up and higher energy costs.

  1. Provides comfort, reduces glare, saves energy & protects furnishings.
  2. It helps correct temperature imbalances between sunny and shady areas and it deflects harsh, uncomfortable glare reducing eye strain that is common while doing paperwork or viewing computer screens.
  3. Employees are more comfortable and more productive!

What causes fading?

  1. Ultra violet rays are the single largest part of the fade factor. They account for 40% of fade whether it is sunny or cloudy outside.
  2. Visible light (glare) accounts for another 25% of the fading.
  3. Heat, that you feel on you body accounts for another 25%.
  4. Miscellaneous (little control) means fabric color fastness, humidity, artificial lighting, etc

        

 What can the sun’s energy do on glass?

  1. Transmit through the pane of glass.
  2. Reflect off of the glass.
  3. Absorb into the glass.

We have many types of film which will control these three aspects of solar energy in differing amounts. A safe film applications will reduce fading from 40% to 75%, reduce heat buildup from 30% to 75%, and reduce glare from 35% to 75%. The end results of this is lower energy cost, more comfortable rooms with less glare and fading.
