Window films are thin sheets of coating that come in different thickness grades and shades, from virtually clear to dark. Through advanced engineering, today’s films provide numerous benefits.
What are the benefits of window films?
Window films help block the UV rays of the sun, protecting your furnishings and other items from fading. They also protect your skin from the damaging UV exposure.
They stop more than 80% of solar energy from coming through your windows. You won’t have to experience uncomfortable hotspots and inconsistent temperatures in your property.
Window films significantly reduce glare. No matter the season or time of day, you’ll be able to enjoy the natural light and see your surroundings without having to squint.
Safety and security films keep the shattered glass in place rather than showering shards into your interior. With these installed on your property, you can rest easy knowing your windows won’t get damaged easily from projectiles or potential break-ins.
Because professionally installed window films maintain consistent temperatures inside your property, HVAC systems work more efficiently. You can reduce up to 30% of cooling costs. Save even more by turning off energy-consuming electric bulbs!
Window films are carbon-neutral products – they’re good for you and the environment. They are also a much less invasive project as compared to complete window replacement.
Are window films validated or certified?
Yes, window film benefits are validated by many third-party certifications. The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) has certified more than 250 films and has verified their energy performance. The organization also rates windows in terms of energy efficiency.
Window films also adhere to various health and safety standards. These include human impact, glass fragment protection, burglary intrusion, bomb blast, and fire safety.
