Solar heat penetrating unprotected glass & windows causes uneven temperatures, hotspots and a constant need for expensive air conditioning. Window films keep up to 80% of solar energy out of buildings, resulting in a cooler and more controllable climate. We can offer low emissivity (low E) films which reduce external solar heat gain during the summer and reduce heat loss during the winter.
With recent temperature increases, the effect of heat on the productivity of workers needs to quantified. It has been found that when office workers are exposed to temperatures of 24oC productivity can fall by as much as 50%. Accidents in the workplace can increase by 30% when temperatures exceed 24oC.
REDUCE AIR CONDITIONING COST
Solar films help to cut energy consumption by reducing the load on air conditioning units and also making direct savings for companies and reduced taxes resulting from the Climate Change Levy.
Power reductions can be between 25% and 37% of annual running costs and film installation costs can be covered by power savings.
SAFETY & SECURITY
For public buildings we can fit a clear security window film to ordinary glass to bring it up to BS6206BIF, for a fraction of the cost of replacing all the glass. This film effectively laminates the glass making it far safer in the event of an accident. It also makes the window far more secure against attempted break ins. Our clear security window film blocks 99% of the damaging UV rays and therefore, makes it ideal for use in galleries, clothes shops or anywhere where goods are displayed in front of a window.
Offices, shops, function rooms, reception halls, laboratories, and many other situations can benefit from privacy tinting film. Our range of privacy films and design films allow glazed areas or glass panels to be transformed into opaque or translucent surfaces, in a variety of colours and designs.
