Solar control window films for homes and commercial buildings help control the sun's radiant energy, reducing the influx of heat, enhancing outward visibility by reducing harsh glare, and nearly eliminating the damaging and dangerous effects of ultraviolet light on our skin, eyes and interior furnishings.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that one-third of a building's cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows, and nearly 75% of existing windows are not energy efficient. Energy efficient window films can help reduce energy costs for your building.
If you're looking to give your building a little shine while enjoying the other benefits of window film, the Reflective Series may be for you. Reflective films feature reflectance on both interior and exteriors for superior reduction in summer cooling costs. Providing a high level of glare and heat control, they are scratch-resistant, shield 99% of ultraviolet rays, and provide excellent heat reduction.
Reflective window film (which has a mirrored tint) reflects rather than filter solar radiation. As visible light, infrared and ultraviolet rays hits the reflective window film, metal components within the film reflects the rays. In addition to reflecting heat, reflective window films also cut ultraviolet light that fades your furniture and reduce glare. While most homeowners choose the completely transparent version, different tint levels are also available to act as a window shade.
Energy efficient solar window films help reduce solar heat, which can help save money and energy, when it comes to your building's operation. According to U.S. Department of Energy statistics, approximately one third of a building's cooling costs can be attributed to solar heat gain through windows. Energy efficient window films can help reduce energy costs for the average building by 15%.
Low-e window film enhances the solar and insulating performance of a building's windows, reducing excessive solar heat gain â€“ reducing cooling loads and peak demand. They also provide year-round benefits, reducing heating costs by improving window insulating performance.
Clearly superior. Designed to maintain the appearance of your building, clear solar window films combine lower than glass reflectivity with film options that allow most of the light into your home. Clear solar window films are some of the most advanced solar control films available, especially the ones we supply. Many components, including precious metals, go into producing window films to reduce UV and infra-red radiation, while allowing high levels of visible light to pass through. Our clear films allow 40% to 70% of the natural light through. The only thing you'll see day or night, inside or out, is a beautiful window. Best used for any location where natural light is needed and solar control is important.
Exterior Films are a great solution for windows that are at risk for glass breakage (such as multipane and low emissivity windows), because they generally do not absorb as much heat as interior films. Exterior application is applied on the outside of windows to reduce the risk of thermal stress, particularly on windows with multiple glass panels. They are also an excellent choice whenever windows are not accessible from the inside. Best used for any location where windows cannot be accessed from the interior and solar control is important.
