Office buildings, schools, factories and even homes increasingly comprise of more and more glass. But however modern and aesthetically pleasing these buildings may look, they generally suffer from overheating in summer, and excessive glare from the sun. Curtains or blinds keep out the visible light, but the heat remains trapped between this and the window.
 
Air conditioning is a very convenient solution, that is, until the electricity bill drops through the letterbox.
 
FACTS ABOUT GLASS AND SOLAR ENERGY..
 
FACT...Productivity in a factory environment may fall as much as 40% when the temperature exceeds 24 DegC
 
FACT...When office workers are exposed to temperatures exceeding 24 Deg C, productivity can fall by as much as 50%
 
FACT...Excessive heat may lead to illness and staff sickness
 
FACT...Accidents at work can increase by 30% when temperatures exceed 24 Deg C
 
FACT...Three of the hottest summers on record occured in the last 15 years
 
FACT...Daylight is very bright even on a cloudy day. The result is often glare and reflection on computer screens, which may cause eye strain and headaches
 
 
SOLAR CONTROL FILM REDUCES HEAT AND GLARE
 
With Solar control film installed, up to 80% of the solar heat is rejected. The film eliminates uncomfortable "hot spots" as well as annoying glare and reflection on computer screens, thus providing a comfortable indoor climate. Controlling heat and glare in the workplace is not just for comfort. There are regulations enforcing this need;
 
REGULATION 8 of the workplace (Health, safety and welfare) 1992 Regulations act require that; "where natural light would result in excessive heat or glare at a workstation, then it should be repostioned or the window or skylight should be shaded".
 
REGULATION 7 of the workplace (health, safety and welfare) 1992 Regulations act require that: " in the working areas, the temperature in all workplaces inside buildings shall be resonable"
 
MORE EFFICIENT ENERGY CONSUMPTION THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
 
Solar control films ensure more efficient cooling in the summer. In winter, some of the films also act as an insulating layer, helping you to reduce heat loss through the glass by keeping some heat in. In this way you maximise your energy efficiency and minimise your consumption costs, as you pay less for your electricity and gas. Because of this you may enhance considerably the value of your building.
 
HELP PREVENT FADING OF THE INTERIOR
 
Fading is damaging for all materials. Curtains and textiles are especially vulnerable. Heat is a major contributory when it comes to fading, as well as visible light, but the biggest factor that causes fading is UV radiation. ALL Solar control films eliminate nearly 100% of the UV radiation.
 
ENHANCES BUILDING AESTHETICS
 
With a wide range of colours and shades, Solar control films can be selected to suit any style of building. Solar control film is the ideal retrofit solution for giving a fresh, new look to older premises. They also provide a creative finish for new buildings
