Cut bothersome and tiring glare, whilst maintaining an open outlook.
Window tint can making daily work tasks easier and make living and working environments more comfortable.
They also allows compliance with Health & Safety regulations for working with visual display units (VDU’s)
UV & FADING
All our films block up to 99% of the sun’s Ultra Violet Light, the main cause of fading to precious interiors.
This significantly extends the lifespan of furniture, paintings, hardwood flooring and fabrics
Many buildings new and old suffer from heat build – up & temperature imbalances. Commercial Window film application is a practical and efficient option to correct this by preventing heat build – up and creating even comfort throughout your office or home space. In addition balancing the inside temperature will considerably reduce the need for air conditioning, reducing running costs, extending the life of your air-conditioning unit and reducing your carbon footprint.
Various window films are available to control solar heat including performance reflectives, subtle neutrals for listed & heritage buildings and the latest spectrally selective, nanotechnology and ceramic-based films for virtually undetectable appearance.
Window films allow you to comply with the Health and Safety requirement to control the solar radiation in the workplace in a safe and cost efficient way.
We also supply speciality tints such as UV Clear, DermaShield and CoolKote for polycarbonate roofs.
Below are some photos of Headingley Cricket Ground Kitchen where we installed solar control film to reduce heat build up in the kitchen area.
HOW IT WORKS
Solar radiation from the sun is divided into 3 components; visible light we can see, and infrared and ultraviolet rays which we can only feel. As solar radiation strikes a piece of glass, window film acts as a “sunscreen” to block harmful UV rays as well as regulates the levels of heat and light passing through the glass. The amount of heat and light rejected is all dependent on the type of window film selected.
To reduce glare from the sun (especially in winter months when the sun is low), we apply a 5% neutral film to a pane glass.
Here is an example where we reduced the glare in a school hall.
MIRROR FILM GLARE & HEAT PROTECTION
Where a school hall was in direct sunlight, the heat and glare were distracting and a causing a problem year round. To reduce the issue, we applied an external mirror film to the windows, dramatically reducing both heat and glare for the pupils and staff alike.
We have professional training in window tint installation, over 20 years experience running a window tint company combined with medical physics experience providing an in-depth knowledge of the electromagnetic spectrum.
