How to Reap the Benefits of Solar Control Window Films

New solar control window films help to decrease the amount of damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays that enter into the office or home setting. When it comes to the office, too much sunlight coming into the space can cause damage to the skin of your employees. Too much exposure to UV rays can lead to skin cancer. These destructive rays can also damage furniture and other items in your office. If your business is a retail location, you may be particularly at risk of damage due to the sunlight. For example, if you have merchandise in window displays, these products may experience fading or other damage due to the sun.

Ordinary glass does not offer any Infrared ray (IR) protection or protection from harmful UV rays. Window films, however, do offer these kinds of protection, especially new films that are specifically designed to protect your office or business from the harmful UV rays and IR emitted from the sun. This is an affordable solution to the damaging UV rays that may be entering your business.

UV rays, visible light, and IR make up the solar spectrum, and IR makes up 53% of this. The solar control window films protect you by blocking over 98.5% of infrared rays and 99% of the harmful UV rays. This will help to protect you from skin damage and damage to other items in your office. This is often a much better alternative to items such as curtains, awnings, or blinds as the window films do not block the view of the world outside or create a dark environment.

Another significant benefit to solar control window films—especially in a commercial setting—is the affordability. It is often expensive to replace all of the windows in a commercial business environment. Window films are a much more affordable option. Furthermore, they will help you to cut costs within your business by decreasing your energy bills. Window films help to keep heat inside during the winter months and cool air inside during the summer months, which will save you a lot of money on your energy bills.
