what is solar control window film?

Solar windows film is a highly effective thermal window film solution for reducing heat gain and glare. Another benefit of Solar Window Films is reducing IR radiation and UV without reducing outward vision through windows. It can be retrofitted to your existing windows making it a cost-effective way of managing temperature and glare. For domestic properties, solar control window film makes a great alternative to conservatory roof blinds. More about Conservatory Window Film…

Using heat reduction window film is particularly effective for buildings or rooms with large windows, for example, commercial hi-rise buildings, modern offices, schools and domestic conservatories. Unwanted heat and glare is reflected or absorbed by the window film. It can also prevent sun-bleaching of soft furnishings and products due to the reduction in harmful UV rays, making it perfect for manufacturing facilities and homeowners. This type of treatment is sometimes called Sun blocking window film but your vision is maintained. Think of this as sunglasses for your building. Light still enters through the treated glass but without the glare, which means you can comfortably work on your computer or watch the television. Our sister company can supply window film, cut to order and delivered by mail order. For DIY heat reduction projects see Lustalux at Home…

Window film is a thin laminate film that can be installed to the interior or exterior of glass in both commercial and residential buildings. The process of window film installation involves the use of a self-adhesive polyester film which is applied to the glass acting as a sunscreen, blocking harmful IR and UVB rays and regulating the levels of heat and light passing through it.


Window film can also be a cost effective retrofit solution for windows that need to be upgraded to meet today’s building codes and energy standards.

Available in a wide range of colours from clear to dark, reflective or non-reflective the film can also feature bespoke design elements such as your logos and company information.
