5 Benefits Of Installing A Window Film

A window film is a thin sheet of polyester. It has optical grade coating. This type of sheet is installed on the glass of a door or window. There are many benefits of using such a film. Save Energy A highly reflective window film is designed to reflect outdoor heat. It helps save energy by reducing air conditioning bills. The air conditioner operates efficiently when less heat enters the indoor area. The film can reduce incoming heat by more than 80%. This strong barrier is effective even during the winter months. The indoor heat does not come in contact with the outdoor environment. It results in efficient heating and cooling. Reduced Glare Window tinting film offers high level of protection from UV rays. It protects expensive furnishings, draperies and other colourful items from fading. In fact, there is no need to use window coverings when such films are used on window glasses. Only the required amount of light enters the room while the glare, UV rays and heat are blocked completely. Residents find the indoor area open and airy. There is no need to use artificial lighting during the daytime. People are more productive when they work under the natural daylight. The room has a comfortable environment when there are no claustrophobic window coverings. Visual Impact Window films are not limited to heat reflective and anti glare films. Now there is a wide range of designer glass films for various applications. Such stylish films are mainly used in commercial stores.

Tackling The Threat of Fade – The Window Film Way

Do you run a shop which places some of its stock in your front windows? Do you have treasured furniture or possessions which are in direct sunlight at any point? If you answer yes to either of these questions, you are running the risk of sun damage due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultra violet light. What Causes Fabrics To Fade? It is all about the chemical makeup of an object. The technical term for colour fading is photo degradation. There are light absorbing colour bodies called chromophores that are present in dyes. The colour(s) we see are based upon these chemical bonds and the amount of light that is absorbed in a particular wavelength. Ultraviolet rays from the sun have the ability to break down the chemical bonds and thus fade the colour(s) in an object - it is a bleaching effect. Some objects may be more prone to fading, such as dyed textiles and watercolours. Other objects may reflect the light more, which makes them less prone to fade. For more on this - https://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/mysteries/colors.html As you can see from the pie chart above, the causes of fading can be varied. Approximately 40% of fabric fading can be attributed to the UV lights from the sun. Heat and light contribute approximately 25% each with the remaining 10% caused by other factors including poor ventilation, poor quality dyes and the effects of artificial light. How Can We Help? WF Glazing Protection stock and sell a range of UV filter window films which have been designed specifically to help reduce the effects of fading. Our sun damage protection window film will help your businesses to: Maximise your window display without the fear of the [...]
