                                                                             Window Film will help Manage All forms of Energy from the Sun!

Film's  have different ways of providing heat reduction. Some are dark and reflective (Neutral, Reflective and Dual Reflective Films) so they remove a large portion of light, but they may not remove enough of the Infrared (NIR). Other films (Spectral Select Films like M.A.C. , VKool and Suntek Ultra Vision) Stop 82 -98% of the Infrared so they can allow in more Visible Light but still have as good or better Heat Reduction than darker more reflective films. You can achieve Heat Reduction, Fade Reduction and Glare Reduction  to meets your needs with varying depths of Darkness and exterior reflectivity's!

Read this Information and Graph below to better understand how Film works!

heat from the sun, broken down!

The figure at the right shows the contribution of Heat of Different types of Solar Energy, which is divided into three regions:  Ultraviolet, Visible and Infrared.  This IR range is also referred as Near Infrared.  A film can be chosen to reduce any Specific Spectrum of Solar Energy!  Heat produced by the Sun's rays, which pass through a glazing system, are called Solar Heat Gain (SHG).  It has two components:  directly transmitted solar radiation and absorbed solar radiation.  In order to understand the total amount of heat that may pass through a Window, one must understand the energy that each spectral region (UV, VIS and NIR) contributes to the SHG in the Solar Spectrum.

Total heat control performance comparisons between glazing systems can be done using the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).  The US Department of Energy, Energy Star, International Code Council, and the National Fenestration Rating Council require the use of the SHGC.  The SHGC provides the consumer with a tool to compare the total heat gain of  different glazing systems. The lower the number (less heat gain), the better the solar control performance. The SHGC includes the contribution of the UV, VIS and IR spectral regions and can be used to determine the solar control performance over the complete Solar Spectrum.

Solar Energy Distribution from the 300nm to the 2500nm wavelength (ASHRAE 2005 Handbook Fundamentals 31.14).


The use of performance data from any single region should not be considered representative of the total solar heat gain performance of ,   "ANY PRODUCT"

With Window Films You can Protect Your Furniture, Flooring, Artwork, Window Coverings  and more against the Sun's Damaging Rays, which Cause Fading. You can also Be Protecting You and Your Family's Skin From Cancer and other Skin Diseases!

Nothing Helps Reduce Fading better than window film for Glazed Units! By stopping almost all the Ultra Violet Rays (99%) Window Film will take out the biggest portion of the Fade Problem, and by choosing the right film darkness and Heat Reduction for your needs you can Lengthen the life of your belongings!

Read this Graph and Information below, to better understand the Sun's damaging rays!



ULTRAVIOLET (U.V.) LIGHT: This is generally considered to be the most harmful portion of sunlight.  The ultraviolet rays contribute to approximately 40% of the fading process. Most Window Films will remove 99.9% of U Rays!

VISIBLE LIGHT: Intense visible light is a considerable source of fading contributing to approximately 25% of the fading process.  With Film, you can manage the light to any degree You Want!

SOLAR HEAT: Furniture and fabrics that are hot to the touch are being damaged by solar heat which is responsible for 25% of the fading problem.  The more heat absorbed by the fabric, the greater the damage.  With Film, You can Remove 20 to 80% of the Heat!!!

OTHER: An additional 10% can be attributed to miscellaneous effects such as: indoor artificial lighting, humidity, heat and poor dye anchorage.

Window Film is the single best thing you can do for your windows to protect everything in your home from Sun Damage!

                                                                                                                                                                DID YOU KNOW?
