Solar Sentry believes that a safe and comfortable space creates a better learning environment for students of any age. When classrooms get too hot in summer, too cold in winter, and the sun glare reflects off screens and whiteboards, comfort levels decrease and learning quality suffers.
With specialist window film coatings applied directly to glass in classrooms, the excess heat gains are dramatically decreased, leaving a more pleasant ambient temperature which is easier to control. Our energy saving Low E window films have an extra insulating layer, which slows down heat loss, reducing your heating bill and maintaining a more stable temperature.

Damaging UV rays are also blocked from entering, protecting staff and students from the most harmful effects of the sun.
Glass carries with it inherent risks – especially in schools, which is why health and safety legislation requires glazing surveys and risk assessments are carried out regularly by school management (Regulation 14).
As experts in the field of glass safety, Solar Sentry carries out these risk assessments on behalf the schools, providing a detailed report identifying any areas of glass that carries a high risk of causing injury. Find out more about safety window film here.
