What is solar window film?
Solar film is a thin, self-adhesive material that controls excess UV light, heat and glare. All you need to do is apply it to your existing window panes.
It is easy to apply, long-lasting and cost-effective. But most importantly, it will help you to banish those harmful UV rays.
How does solar control window film work to protect against harmful UV rays?
As the name suggests, these films are very successful at solar control and UV protection and minimising the problems caused by the sun streaming through the windows in your commercial space.
The science behind it is surprisingly simple though.
Solar control films are coated with reflective materials that block out the sun’s harmful rays while allowing natural light to pass through. And because UV rays are stopped from entering the room, they are prevented from causing damage to your furnishings and posing a risk to employees and colleagues.
They are a pleasant alternative to drawing curtains or blinds on a sunny day. Especially as they still allow for excellent natural light transmission.
