When carefully applied to any type of glazing, solar control films provide effective thermal insulation in winter and a number of other considerable benefits in summer months:
- a considerable reduction in solar heat gain (reflection of up to 98 % of infrared radiation)
- solar glare control (reducing glare by 99 %)
- a substantial reduction in air conditioning costs
- near complete absorption of UV solar radiation.
Solar control films help improve overall insulation levels and can help reduce or even eliminate the need for air conditioning.
