Solar Film: Commercial
There are many benefits to incorporating and utilizing window film for either a building or business. Commercial window film/tint is one of the most effective and economical methods to control energy costs and increasing comfort for new construction and retrofit projects. The film will also block harmful UV rays, reduce fade on furnishings, and increase glare protection. They also provide an improved aesthetic to the exterior of the building.
Similar to a building’s insulation, solar control window film offers thermal insulation for your windows. By controlling the amount of light and heat entering your building utility costs will be reduced. Along with other popular commercial energy-savings upgrades, such as lighting, windows and HVAC replacement, solar window film offers a comparable period of return on investment often 3 years or less.
UV window film provides a barrier between a building’s occupants and furnishings and harmful ultraviolet radiation. Ultraviolet A rays (UVA) in particular are responsible for causing extensive damage – including(but not limited to) initiating skin cancer development and causing fading of furniture and flooring. While ordinary glass offers little to no protection from the sun, Llumar and Vista Films block harmful UVA and UVB rays up to 99%, and at a fraction of the cost of other UV-blocking alternatives.
Fade & Glare Protection
A valuable benefit of incorporating solar window film into the workplace and/or throughout the building is that it allows occupants to enjoy natural light without unwanted UV rays, heat and glare on computer screens. This improvement lends to increased workplace comfort and productivity.
Exterior Building Look
Installing solar window film throughout a building will create a more uniform look adding to the exterior’s overall aesthetics.
