Benefits of Solar Window Films

Solar window film is a thin material which is applied directly to your existing window panes to control excess sunlight, heat, glare and UV light. Unlike other window coverings, window film is clear and see through, allowing you to see out, and is very easy to keep clean. The main benefit of solar control window film is the versatility of the material allowing you to choose from a wide range of window fim products to target your exact requirements, whether heat reduction or glare control.

Solar Window Film for UV Protection

Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared (IR) elements of sunlight can have undesirable effects on our homes and ourselves, such as fading of furnishings, photographs, floor coverings and wallpaper. Sun blocking and anti fading window films are a great solution and can reduce UV light by over 99.0%. Our AUVF product is completely clear product making it ideal for shops, retail outlets and museums with no loss of natural light.

Heat Control Window Film

Solar film is dual-action and a fantastic solution for reducing sun glare and heat in summer, by both blocking infrared light and reducing visible light. The most efficient films are reflective or tinted films, and if you're window is double glazed, then external films are much more efficient as they prevent the heat from being trapped within the panes. However, solar film isn’t just for summer; it can also limit heat loss in winter, acting as insulation and saving you money on heating bills! 

Anti-glare & Glare Reduction Film

Solar control window film also works to reduce glare by reducing the amount of light levels entering the room, like sunglasses for your windows. Our range of films come in various grades to block out as much or as little light as you need. Why not try tinted film to help reduce glare on your TV screens to enjoy some downtime or computer screens to increase work productivity? Solar control film will enhance your comfort by mitigating the negative effects of the sun, including UV rays.

Reflective Window Film For Privacy

Solar reflective film gives your windows a mirror finish when viewed from the outside whereas is transparent from the inside. This is principally designed as an anti-glare and heat control film however reflective window film has the added benefit of providing daytime privacy by making your glass reflective allowing you to view out one way and for the view in to be restricted. Solar reflective film are very efficient window film products for heat control by the nature of the silver reflective finish which prevents the energy from the sun to go through the glass.
