What is the significance of installing window films?
Regardless of the design of a building, windows are an important feature that must be included in the design. However, there are some limitations of using glass, including energy loss, temperature extremes, fading of furniture, safety issues, glare and privacy. Installing window films is the most convenient and affordable way of combating these problems, while simultaneously enhancing the merits of using glass.
Different types of window films
Solar films – These are usually energy efficient and UV rays reflective window films designed for reducing fading of furniture, heat and glare.
Security and safety films – These window films are designed for preventing injury and damage through locking in the glass during impact.
Privacy films – Frosted or patterned window films are usually installed for creating a private environment without necessarily affecting the stylish design.
Graphic films – These window films are attractive designs and can be customised to showcase your brand.

Solar control window films
These are specially designed films aimed at combating various problems linked to too much sun, such as:
Temperature control – The interior space in a building with windows can either be too cool or too hot. Installing window films helps in overcoming these temperature extremes and maintaining a more pleasant environment.
Reduce glare – Too much light can actually cause a major problem, particularly for screen users. Window films helps to guard against eye strain, tiredness and low productivity, effectively removing the need of closing blinds or curtains.
Enhance energy efficiency – With properly installed window films, you do not need to spend lots of money on air conditioning and heating systems. This offers considerable cost savings as well as reducing your personal carbon footprint.
Conservatory shading – Since conservatories have become more popular, more people are experience the issue of excessive heat through the upper roof glazing. In this case, solar control window films can be installed to reflect light and heat away. We use a special solar coating for industrial premises or conservatories known as Coolkote. It has the following key properties:
- Can be used on either glass or polycarbonate.
- Distinctive and high quality metallised PVC coating.

By deflecting large amounts of UV rays from entering the conservatory, it is a lot simpler and cheaper to maintain comfortable temperatures all through the year.
