Reflective Window Film - Internal

Reflective films are the best performing products in the solar control range as they can make an incredible difference to the amount of solar heat & glare transmitted through glass.

Reflective Window Film - External

External films are are of weather resistant construction having additional UV barriers to help protect the film from degrading through exposure to sunshine, and also having a strong waterproof adhesive. They are particularly used when inside access is not always possible or depending on the type of glass, in particular laminated, Georgian-wired, heavy tinted glass or some double or tripled glazing. 

 

Opalux Frosted

Solar Control - Polycarbonate

Solar reflective films for polycarbonate windows or rooflights are manufactured with a special adhesive to counter the tendency for standard reflective films to bubble up if applied to plastics instead of glass.
 

Light Reduction

The Non-reflective Slate range are a non-metallised used for tinting clear glass, and are available in a range of shades. They are a great way to help control the light into a room without creating a mirrored external appearance. The lighter shades are mainly used for aesthetic reasons and to match existing tinted glass.

Clear Safety - External

External Safety films are mainly used where both interior and exterior films have been specified for application to both sides of the glazing units for extra strength and protection. This could be for any number of reasons to provide a double protection safety or security application. A regular use of these exterior films is to hold glass together where there is a history of spontaneous shattering of glazing units in overhead or vertical situations creating a severe and unpredictable risk to the public.

 

Low Mirror Window Film - Internal

Low Mirror Window Film - External

Opalux® Low Mirror external films are used where the end user, or specifier, chooses a more neutral tinted appearance, rather than the mirrored look of solar reflective films. However they still achieve a good level of solar heat and glare control.

 

Combined Safety

Opalux multi-laminate combined solar/safety/security films are used by Government and commercial organisations where high-performance safety, particularly with reference to risk of bomb-blast, is required along with the features of a solar control film.
