Commercial window film can enhance the performance of any glazing system, save energy, improve comfort, add safety/security and update aesthetics. Significant and rapid payback in as little as 3 years make this a smart investment for any building owner or occupant.
Solar control window films dramatically reduce excessive heat gain by acting like a shield or filter. They reject over 80% of the sun’s energy by first reflecting the solar radiation. Followed by absorbing some of this energy and lastly allowing natural light to pass through to varying degrees depending on films used. This translates into a savings of one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass filmed.
Without window film, your windows allow the heat to pass through to interior spaces where it accumulates. This accumulated heat load must be pumped out of the building by your HVAC system. Window film reduces this heat load thus allowing the HVAC equipment to work more efficiently and at a lower overall energy cost both in the long term and in the now.
In addition the sun’s ultraviolet rays wreak havoc on a building’s interior furnishings, wood, carpet and artwork, fading them and shortening their useful life span. Window film filters out 99.9% of harmful UV rays to dramatically reduce fading. Clear or untreated glass often causes us stress. Annoying glare and heat in the work place reduces productivity. Window film reduces the glare that often leads to problems viewing computer screens and monitors.

Take control of overall operating costs, balance building temperatures, reduce the load on HVAC systems and add protection to your buildings weakest link, it’s glass.
