Windows in our properties play a very important role in our lives. Their ability to let in light and offer beautiful views ensure that life would be very difficult if we lived in homes without them.
However, despite all the positivity associated with sunlight entering our homes, there are also a number of negative aspects inextricably linked to sunlight, including the creation of hot spots and severe fading of your furnishings.
There can also be little doubt that windows are nearly always the most vulnerable part of our homes. During storms, or in the unfortunate event of a break in, windows are often the primary point of damage.
Specially created solar window films are becoming increasingly popular in both domestic and commercial properties due to their ability to reject solar heat, reduce fading, and they can add a valuable layer of protection to your home.
Perhaps best of all, these benefits are available without needing to change the look of your property.
Elegant & Practical Solution
Window films provide an elegant, yet practical means for solving many of the most challenging aspects of managing sun control and security issues surrounding the use of your home, car or business.
Reduce Impact of Hotspots
Many property owners feel the impact of hot spots when the summer begins to take hold. Whilst conservatories are particularly prone to become hot spots, the truth is that any part of your property which has windows facing the sun for a large part of the day has the ability to become a hot spot.
Limit UV Damage
Solar window films offer the ability to reduce up to 99.99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays whilst rejecting up to 85 percent of the solar heat that may otherwise come through a window.
On the flip side of this, they also work during the winter to help reduce winter heat loss by reflecting up to 41 percent of indoor heat back into the room.
They are also ideal to help protect furnishings, curtains, carpet, woodwork and artwork from destructive ultraviolet rays that cause significant and permanent damage.
