Solar control window films are specialised adhesive films that when fitted to the inside of windows reduce the amount of Ultraviolet Solar Heat coming through the glass.
These Films offer a long-term and durable protection from our Sun’s Ultraviolet rays. U.V. Rays are responsible for the excessive glare and heat that we experience in our homes and offices, and also cause the premature fading of delicate items like fabrics and photographs.
How does Solar Control Window Film work?
Coloured Solar Control Window Films are dyed and work by increasing absorption. The colour pigments within the film absorb the Ultraviolet rays at the glass and reduce the transmission of rays into the room.
Reflective Solar Control Window Films are precision coated with metals and work by increasing the solar energy reflection of the glass. As more Ultraviolet rays are reflected away, this reduces the transmission of rays into the room.
