Is solar film suitable for my building?
Solar film is commonly used in conservatories, commercial buildings, schools and hospitals, although it can be installed on all windows. Any building with glass windows can suffer from excessive heat build up from the sun and this can cause major problems to the occupants causing discomfort.
This issue can be remedied with our solar film installation service, which could help reject up to 80% of this heat gain, without reducing vision through the glazing system. This could also significantly reduce your energy costs by reducing air-conditioning running time in the summer.
