The Top 4 Benefits to Businesses Offered by Solar Control Window Film

Manage energy costs & improve occupant comfort with 3M Solar Window Film.

3M Solar Window Film can reduce solar heat gain and help to create a balanced environment in buildings, especially in the summer months, when the films can help to reduce the workload of cooling systems and save energy costs.

Energy Conservation

3M Solar Window Films can help you to reduce your energy costs. These costs typically represent 30% of a building’s annual budget. Rising energy bills and the introduction of carbon reduction targets, have focused building owners on finding ways to reduce their bills. Within commercial and public buildings, energy costs are often driven by high HVAC costs, as it costs 3 to 4 times more to cool a building by 1 degree Celsius than to heat it.*

The installation of solar control window films can be highly beneficial to almost any business. These control window films are one of the most viable and cost effective strategy of making the offices and other premises cooler.

How Do Solar Control Films Work?

The films achieves the cooling power by reducing excess heat penetration to the buildings, which saves on the energy costs associated with air conditioning resulting into higher returns on investments.

Benefit No. 1 – Protection From UV Rays

During the hot sunny days, businesses are able to protect their employees and other perishable product within their premises using the solar control window films. The ordinary solar control films filters at least 95% of the solar infrared heat and rays, which may have a damaging effect on people and products within the buildings. At WF Glazing Protection, we add value to our control films to ensure they are able to filter the dangerous ultra violet solar rays up to 99%, ensuring total protection of the business employees and precious products.

Benefit No. 2 – Reduced Damage

By reducing excessive exposure to the sun within the buildings, the solar control window films saves on the decoration and fitting costs for the business by reducing the speed at which the house interior fitting and surfaces fades when exposed to the sun. The low light allowed into the buildings by the control window films makes the interior spaces of business comfortably cooler for the daily activities of the business.

Benefit No. 3 – Additional Security

Solar control window films offer an additional security layer to the premises windows in case of any accidental or deliberate breakages of the glass surfaces, windows, and doors. The broken pieces of glass remain suspended in the film instead of being spread across surfaces. This suspension makes it harder for penetration into a room in case of theft of sabotage.

Benefit No. 4 – Affordable Decoration

Additionally, the solar control window films allows for easier, cheaper and faster decoration of the buildings without having to scratch walls or hindering other business operations. Our films are designed with a wide range of colours and contemporary designs for businesses. These films enhance business branding and advertising to the people outside the premises.

3 of the Most Common Reasons People Opt For Privacy Window Film

Privacy window film is the effective modern alternative to curtains and blinds. If you are looking to increase the privacy around your home without sacrificing natural light, privacy window film may offer the perfect option.

The Advantages of Privacy Window Film

The advantages of etched, cut, sandblasted, textured, blackout, or one way mirrors are clear: enhanced safety and security can be provided through privacy. These matte, blackout, and mirror films limit views through glass on the building interior. Because these films come in rolls, they can be cut into numerous decorative designs, and can provide an updated look, while maintaining the privacy desired.

Relax In Improved Safety & Privacy

When it comes to your home, you have every reason to expect it to be safe and private. A place where you can get away from the stresses of life, relax and be comfortable. You deserve to feel secure in your home, free from the wandering eyes of passers by, neighbours who happen to be driving or passing by or maybe even just from people who are potentially up to no good.

Below we have outlined 3 of the most common reasons people choose to have privacy window film installed to their property

  1. Increased Privacy – The application of just a thin low cost layer of window privacy film significantly increases the levels of privacy without sacrificing light. This is a substantial difference when compared to blinds and curtains.
  2. Improved Appearance – Privacy window film also offers the ability to add a decorative element to your home whilst still limiting the ability of people to see in.
  3. Increased Productivity – The installation of privacy window film is not just limited to residential properties. Some businesses find that their location can be an issue from time to time. If you own an office that sits on a busy street, the application of privacy film could offer the perfect antidote that the unsettling feeling that your staff may be on display.

Whether to protect valuable assets or personal modesty, privacy window film offers the perfect cost effective solution against prying eyes.

How To Reduce Energy Costs and Improve Patient Comfort on your Hospital Ward

There can be little doubt that hospitals can be difficult places to be. As such, any step that can be taken to make a visit a little more comfortable is one that must be explored.

With privacy, security and temperature control all being primary concerns, finding a cost effective solution is always important to help improve conditions in the hospital.

From Schools and Universities to Hospitals and commercial properties, nearly all organisations can benefit from the installation of window film.

These benefits include but are not limited to the following:

  • Window film is designed to reject the sun’s powerful heat, glare and UV rays. This helps to keep staff and patients comfortable all year round.
  • Window film offers a great way to provide energy efficiency and cost savings for commercial property owners.
  • Privacy window tints create one way privacy while frosted, decorative patterns or opaque glass effects are available in temporary or permanent options to screen off unwanted views.
  • Films also provide optimal safety and glass protection.

Reducing Running Costs

One of the main costs for any hospital relates to energy bills. For decades, insulation has been used in the walls and ceilings of our properties to control the flow of heat between inside and out. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film works in the same way. It improves the insulation value of a typical single pane window to that of a double pane window and a double pane window to a triple pane window. This helps keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out in the summer.

Key Details

  • Helps keep you warm during cold winter months.
  • Good heat rejection provides additional comfort and energy savings in the summer months.
  • Film offers high visible light transmission with a neutral appearance to help maintain a building’s existing appearance.
  • Significantly blocks the amount of harmful UV rays that cause fading, helping to extend the life of furnishings.
  • Includes a comprehensive warranty from 3M.

Increased Privacy

Many hospitals have large windows which can make privacy levels quite difficult to maintain. With curtains and blinds being both expensive and difficult to maintain, an alternative is available in the form of the range of privacy and safety window films which are available from the team at WF Glazing Protection.

With a full range of specialist privacy window film available directly from us, we offer the ideal method of increasing the privacy levels of your hospital at affordable prices.

Offering benefits including:

  • 24 hour privacy of valuable assets
  • Increased personal modesty
  • Hiding unattractive parts of a building

The installation of privacy window film can help to transform your hospital into something altogether more secure.

A Recent Example

“During a recent internal survey, it was highlighted that most of the glazing in and around both hospital sites at John Radcliffe and Churchill, needed to be upgraded in accordance with The Workplace (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 – Regulation 14.

Since replacing the windows was out of the question due to budget constraints, the alternative was to apply a Safety Window Film. We contacted Brian Wong of WF Glazing Protection Ltd to discuss the requirements and the logistics of the project.

Not only were they competitive, we found them to be efficient and accommodating. The hospital is not the easiest place to work in at the best of times but they were courteous and professional to both members of staff and patients in the wards.

I was kept up-to-date with the progress of the project by Brian on a regular basis and this gave me the confidence to leave them to it so that I could focus my attention elsewhere.

We are very pleased with WF Glazing Protection Ltd and the professional service they provided. The project was completed on time and within budget. We would happily use them again or recommend them.”

Little Known Way to Improve Pupil Comfort and Security

The installation of window film to a school building can provide a variety of benefits.

The ill-effects of solar glare and heat gain can quickly make studying conditions extremely uncomfortable and finding a cost effective method of combating these issues should always be a high priority.

Finding ways of improving the safety and security of staff and pupils is of obvious importance whilst enhancing levels of privacy is also something that should be factored into the thought-making process of any facilities manager.

Taking Responsibility

Whether you are responsible for a primary school, secondary school, college or university, it is essential that all possible steps are taken to help safeguard the children, pupils and staff that are based there. From adding safety film to glass, to applying solar control window film to help provide protection against harmful UV rays, heat and glare, WF Glazing Protection Ltd have a solution for you.

Cost-Effective Solutions

Offering a cost-effective way to help protect schools, window film has been utilised by an ever-increasing number of schools throughout the UK.

Many schools have high level windows in their classrooms and the glare and reflection on the computer screens make their use uncomfortable for students. Blinds do not offer a viable solution because of the difficulty relating to maintenance and therefore alternatives have to be found.

The application of window film can be highly effective in making display screens easier to read and in addition, can help to reduce the heat from the sun during the summer months, a common issue for many schools.

The Perfect Example

The school hall at Winstanley Community College in Leicester had recently undergone a major window replacement. Smoke-tinted double glazed units had been installed to give a modern appearance and the old blinds had been removed.

Unfortunately, this had led to a problem with glare via the high level windows affecting school assemblies and the projection screens.

We were referred to the school as a company who would be able to solve their problem. Following a survey we identified that the glazing configuration had a laminated safety glass inner pane. Therefore, an external solar film installation was recommended to avoid any thermal fracture risk on the inner panes. The school requested that the film needed to have the same smoked appearance as the glass to keep the modern aesthetic.

Madico CH08 XSR was specified to provide 91% glare reduction. The installation to 82sqm of glazing from 5.2m mobile access towers by our certified installers was carried out during the October half-term holiday to help the school minimise disruption and so as to not cause a health and safety issue.

Ian Joyce, Site Manager, commented “It looks really good and I’ve received some positive comments”.

Wide Ranging Benefits

As referenced above, the application of window films to a school building can offer a wide range of benefits. These include:

  1. Effective UV Protection: Solar control window films are extremely effective at blocking a significant amount of UV light. Our protective films significantly reduce fading by rejecting up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays and 97% of infra-red heat.
  2. Solar Heat Gain Reduction: Our window films can reduce solar heat gain by up to 82% creating a far more comfortable and productive working environment.
  3. Reduced Energy Bills: One of the biggest benefits of solar control window films is the ability to reduce energy costs throughout all times of the year. By keeping temperatures up during the winter and down during the summer, both heating and cooling bills can be reduced as a result.
  4. Reduced Glare: Our films can reduce solar glare and reflection by up to 92% creating more comfortable, productive studying environments for staff and students.

Increased Safety Levels

As well as the benefits outlined above, safety and security window film, particularly 3M™ Safety and Security Window Film has proven to be popular in schools because:

  • It is more cost effective than replacing all windows and doors with laminated glass
  • It is easily applied, even over existing glazing
  • While it cannot stop intruders from entering school buildings, it does act as a deterrent, providing precious response time by slowing the intruder down
