High-performance window films directly applied to the glass surface enhance the glass's performance. Window films easily improves the aesthetics while raising indoor comfort and reducing utility costs. The application of film for windows is one of the most effective and economical methods of controlling energy loss and increasing indoor comfort.
Glass windows are notorious as an energy waster, but incorporating some degree of solar protection allow architects and design professionals to use add more glass widows and doors to their project.
Shutters look good, but they hide the beauty of the view and darken a room when closed. Shades also block much of the outside view when in use. While adding design appeal to the room, draperies aren't much help controlling energy loss, even when closed. Window films alone offer protection from the sun while maintaining the full appeal of the glass window.
Quality window films provide increased indoor comfort throughout the year, reduce energy consumption by cutting heat gain, protect fabric and finishes, and reduce glare.
Window films are available in clear, coloured and patterned design to blend with various design schemes. Also, tints are available in different viscosity for solar, safety or security applications.
More and more architects and designers specify window films in their projects because of the many benefits. By applying solar film to glass windows and doors, troublesome problems associated with the popular open look can be controlled. Window films can cut incoming light, eliminate harmful ultraviolet radiation to protect fabric and finishes, and cut up solar heat gained through the glass.
