Why Choose Heat Reduction and UV Films?
Decorative, and highly effective
Indeed, glass has become an increasingly popular element in many modern workplaces, leading to an increased risk of solar heat gain and glare. Tinted glass does little more than change the appearance of the glass, while blinds do not actually keep the property cool – they just reduce the ingress of light. By applying solar-control UV Reduction window film, we can reject unwanted solar heat gain and glare, block damaging ultraviolet rays, and provide electromagnetic shielding. As an added bonus, the visual appearance of your work space is greatly enhanced!
Heat reduction treatment reduces energy costs in the summer
In addition to making working conditions uncomfortable, solar gain also leads to higher energy costs, accounting for about 20% of the cooling energy load in commercial properties during the summer months. Installing solar-control film is estimated to pay for itself in reduced energy bills within two to three years, reducing temperatures by as much as eight degrees centigrade.
UV coatings and films can reduce glare without ruining your view
Where glare is a problem, solar-control window film reduces the effect without impacting on visible light levels or the view through the glass. This can enhance the productivity of staff, in particular those working on computer screens.
The right high-tech materials for every application
The extensive range of solar-window films available includes reflective, semi-reflective, dual-reflective, neutral-tinted and colour-tinted finishes to modify the appearance of the building. In addition, reflective finishes can provide privacy and one-way vision when combined with the correct lighting levels.
