The trend towards more open floor plans and areas that bring the outdoors inside is unmistakable. Today's homes and commercial buildings use more glass than ever before. As attractive as this is, it leads to a host of problems ranging from excessive glare, heat build-up and high energy costs to the premature fading of carpets, furniture and draperies.
Window film can alleviate these problems while providing increased comfort and lower overall costs.
What are the Benefits?
Increase Comfort by Reducing Heat and Glare
Working in an office or relaxing at home in direct sunlight can result in fatigue, eyestrain and loss of concentration. Window film is a retrofit product installed directly to the interior side of the glass. It helps correct temperature imbalances between sunny and shady areas and it deflects harsh, uncomfortable glare. Employees are more comfortable and more productive.
Reduce Heating and Cooling Costs
Interior heat loss through windows can cause discomfort to building occupants and unnecessarily high energy bills. Low emissivity insulating film applied to the inside face of ordinary single-glazed windows decreases heat loss by up to 30%. In summer window films reduce the cost of cooling a building by rejecting up to 79% of the sun's heat.
Help Prevent Premature Fading
Over time, the rays of the sun fade whatever is in their path. But professionally installed window film blocks out 99% of the damaging ultraviolet rays that ordinary windows allow in. That means that draperies, furniture, upholstery and carpeting will last longer.
Glass treatment films can add new style to buildings for a fraction of the cost of other refurbishment without the inconvenience of relocating tenants. Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, tinted, semi-reflective or fully-reflective film enhances any architectural design. From the inside, window film has a pleasant, glare and distortion-free view and from the outside it has a uniform appearance that complements the building's design.
Translucent or daylight reflection films applied to the inside of your windows will let in light but guard against prying eyes. Blackout (opaque) films are also available as well as a range of frosted decorative films can provide an attractive finish to internal partitions.
