To a certain extent, you might imagine that when it comes to window films for repelling excessive solar glare and heat gain, how the film that you purchase looks will be a deeply secondary consideration.
After all, will many observers – whether from the inside or outside of the building to which the solar control film is to be applied – even take much notice of the film’s visual characteristics, or realise you have installed window film at all?
A window film’s aesthetics and function go hand-in-hand
In reality, when you are shopping for solar control film, it is unlikely that you will be able to entirely neglect the matter of the film’s appearance – not least given how this interacts with other aspects of its day-to-day performance and practicality.
If, for instance, you are interested in our internally or externally applied reflective solar control film, its highly mirrored appearance is not merely incidental. This is because it is actually instrumental in the creation of a one-way privacy effect that prevents outsiders from easily peering into a property, with the implications this also has for safety and security.
Or perhaps it is our interior or exterior low-mirror film that you feel would best suit your intended application? This particular film offers good solar heat and glare rejection, but also sports the more understated and neutral outward appearance that helps to make it a popular choice for architecturally sensitive and listed buildings.
No matter how specialised your needs may be, we can cater to them
The above solar control film products are not the only ones in our range that show why appearance is likely to be an integral consideration for almost any specifier or end user who purchases window film from us.
Our tinted window films, for example, serve the purpose of tinting clear glass to enhance daytime privacy. Meanwhile, coloured films are also available from us to act as decoration at the same time as being genuinely useful in the rejection of elevated levels of heat and glare.
Then, of course, there is the possibility that you wish your chosen solar control film to be genuinely useful in absorbing and rejecting solar energy, while also having no discernible impact on the look of the glass. Sure enough, your building’s windows can look completely clear to the casual naked eye, when you install one of our clear heat control films.
In short, then – yes, the look of your solar control film can definitely have a profound impact on aspects going well beyond mere aesthetic preferences. That’s one more reason why it is so crucial to discuss with professionals like our own, the matter of which film may represent the most appropriate match to your building’s functional and other requirements.
