Solar Window Film
Solar window film is designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that can travel through a window. It can be made of a multi-layer, ceramic or metallic construction that reflects and absorbs solar energy, UV Rays & Infrared Rays, which can help to block the heat that enters a building through the windows.
The installation of Solar Window Film offers several benefits to owners and tenants. Here are 4 common key benefits:
4 Key Benefits:
Energy Savings: Solar window films can reject 40%-85% of solar heat energy coming through the windows. This can lead to energy savings on heating and cooling costs, as it allows to reduce the usage of air conditioning, in some cases up to 30%. This can lead to significant energy savings over time and can help to lower the overall operating costs of a building.
UV Rays: Solar window film blocks 99% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, which can cause fading and damage to furniture, flooring, and people in a building. This protection can help people who are prone to skin cancers and can help to prolong the life of interior items and maintain the overall appearance of a building.
Glare Reduction: Solar window film has the ability to reduce glare, making it easier to see through windows and enjoy the view. This can increase the comfort of a space with many windows and make it easier to work or relax.
Increased Commercial Tenant Retention: If employees are unhappy, tenants are unhappy. It's important to maximize working space but offices next to windows can sometimes get cooked by the sun. Solar films can reduce the temperature in direct sunlight by as much as 9°F (5°C), making spaces next to windows more comfortable,
