We recently received a call from Triumph Motorcycles in Hinckley, Leicestershire with a request to resolve an issue that affected their staff during the winter months.
What Was The Issue?
The main reception at Triumph Motorcycles Head Office in Hinckley, Leicestershire is an impressive angled atrium in black tinted double glazing fitting their iconic name following 110 years of manufacturing in Britain.
During winter months though, the low level sun was causing a glare problem for the reception staff even through the already tinted glass.
Paul Walklate who is the Indirect Buyer for Triumph said…….
”Our receptionists were experiencing problems with the light of the sunrise during the winter months; they found wearing sun glasses improved conditions but they were conscious of their appearance when greeting visitors so requested we develop a new solution to the problem. We considered many different ways to approach this such as window blinds and sun screens but the angle of the atrium made it difficult to source a simple cost effective solution so the focus turned towards sourcing a window film.”
How Did We Arrive At The Solution?
After consultation with the client, it was agreed that we would install a variety of samples to provide an accurate indication as to which would provide the ideal solution for the ‘glare’ issue.
Following a successful trial, TG8-XSR dark charcoal non-metallic solar control film with 87% glare reduction and a five year external warranty was chosen.
The project was successfully installed from mobile access towers by our PASMA certified operatives to 50sqm of glass over 27no high level panes in the mid-section of the atrium.
Were There Any Problems?
Due to access issues internally combined with the laminated inner pane glazing configuration it was deemed that an external application of solar control window film was the most appropriate solution.
The specification was going to be crucial as it not only had to offer the correct level of glare reduction but it was critical that the appearance complimented the existing aesthetic.
The application required a high level of detail which meant the job wasn’t finished until the dying light of the evening.
Upon completion of the project, we are pleased to report that the team at Triumph Motorcycles are delighted with the results of the installation and their glare issues have been resolved.
