Reduce Fading with the Installation of Window Film

For the majority of people, seeing sunlight streaming through a window during the day is something that will always be viewed in a positive light. However, for some businesses, unfiltered sunlight can actually be something costly and damaging which needs to be avoided wherever possible. Fading caused by the sun can be an expensive problem for a huge variety of businesses. With UV rays, heat and light from the sun all contributing towards fading, stock, furniture and fabric can all fall victim to the damaging effects of unfiltered sunlight. Sun Damage Can Be a Costly, Yet Avoidable Expense Despite the effects of sun damage being common, they can be quite easily avoided in a method that is far cheaper than replacing the damaged stock! The installation of specialist sun control window film will allow you to: Maximise your window display without the fear of the sun Save yourself the time and hassle of constantly changing the display Our protective films significantly reduce fading by rejecting up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays and 97% of infra-red heat. Films that reject less than 99% of UV will not offer adequate levels of protection!!! There are a number of different types of window film available to help protect your stock against the threat of sun damage, with nearly all sharing one common trait, the fact that they are virtually clear. Allaying Common Concerns One of the primary concerns we hear from many of our customers relates to the fact that they are worried about altering the exterior look of their property or restricting the light that can come through the window, however there is no need to worry about these concerns when dealing with WF Glazing Protection. Our range [...]

Richard, Lincolnshire – 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control window film – Historic Building

What problems were you looking to solve? I contacted WF Glazing Protection to help solve my problem of heat loss during the winter and solar heat gain during the summer. The 2 big challenges I was having with our home. How well did WF Glazing Protection solve these problems for you? WF Glazing Protection fitted the 3M Thinsulate climate control window film in December 2017, August 2018 and November 2018. I have seen a massive improvement in reducing the sun. It’s made a significant difference in making rooms more comfortable to use. What held you back from having window film fitted sooner? I had previously held back from getting widow film fitted sooner because the films available were visible from inside and out changing the look of the glass. It was important to maintain visibility and a natural appearance on our home.  3M Thinsulate CC75 is a virtually clear solution. What did you like most about the service offered from WF Glazing Protection?  The whole team at WF Glazing Protection are amazing. When Dave visited to do the assessment, he was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.  This was matched by John who did a brilliant job with the installations taking great care on our old windows. What was your main concern that would have prevented you from buying this, and what put your fears to rest? Before I went ahead with purchasing 3M Thinsulate climate control window film I was not confident in the product and was concerned with the way it would look. Dave did an excellent job of explaining the benefits that window film can offer, which put all my fears to rest. If you were to recommend 3M Thinsulate Climate Control window [...]

Safety Window Film – Taking Security to a New Level

There can be little doubt that glass can be a fragile and potentially dangerous material, which presents a significant chance of injury and secondary damage when broken. Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 states that glass in risk critical locations must meet specified safety standards, and through the application of specialist safety window film from WF Glazing Protection, you can be certain to receive an efficient and highly effective solution. How Does Safety Window Film Work? Safety window film has been designed to substantially reduce the negative impact of broken glass. If untreated or standard glazing breaks, the shards can fall away from the frame creating an immediate and dangerous hazard. However the application of safety window film helps to hold the broken glass in place to prevent it from causing any further problems. The application of safety film will upgrade glass to safety glass standards, thus ensuring that there will be no need to incur the additional expense of undertaking an expensive glazing replacement programme to ensure health and safety compliance is met. Turning a Weakness into a Strength With the 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films available from WF Glazing Protection, we will be able to help you turn your windows from one of your property’s weaknesses into one of its strengths. By offering proven help against threats such as break-ins, and the increasing threat posed by extreme weather, 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films have been designed to help hold the glass fragments together, reducing potential injury from flying glass during a breakage. Because these films are designed to hold the glass together, they work to form a stronger barrier, absolutely perfect for slowing down and [...]
