Solar Control Window Film

Solar Control Window Film

Solar control window film can reduce up to 81% of the solar heat gain, by targeting the infra-red portion of the sun’s rays – these are what cause the direct solar heat gain through glass – and bouncing them away before they can cause a problem.

We all love the brightness and views that a window brings to any room, but the downsides often involve letting too much heat to enter the space – ranging from your own home or conservatory overheating, to classrooms or offices that get too hot during the summer. Not only can this be very uncomfortable and render rooms unusable, but also impact the concentration and productivity of those working and learning in the space. Solar control window film can help to resolve this.

Air conditioning can be a costly thing to fit, run, and maintain, and blinds still allow the heat to enter the room, and will block the view out… whereas a window film solution is specially designed to reflect and reject a high percentage of the solar heat energy from entering the room in the first place, without obstructing your ability to see out

Did You Know...

it takes 5 times the amount of energy to decrease the temperature by 1 degree, than to heat up by 1 degree.

These solutions can minimise the need for blinds, and reduce the working load of air conditioning, saving money and reducing carbon consumption. Our customers love the new-found comfort and usability of spaces which previously became too hot to occupy comfortably.

What’s more, our solar heat rejection films come in a wide range of shades and hues, from light, almost clear films, to tinted films to assist with controlling unwanted glare, and providing improved privacy. The visual appearance can range from neutrals and greys, to more reflective silvers, bronzes, and golds to suit the building’s external appearance, and many more.

We also have a blog on the different uses for solar control window film, including answering concerns such as light levels, reflectivity etc, which you can check out here.

We also have thicker safety and security versions of these solar heat control films which are perfect for reducing excessive heat gain whilst providing additional strength and durability to glass.
