Sunlight (which is responsible for solar heat gain) is not something that people want to lose completely; since the British psyche is generally geared towards taking full advantage of the sun whenever it appears! It’s more a case of having some control over its effects – hence the reason why the versatility of window film has become so popular in these types of situations.
With natural sunlight, the additional problems with excessive glare on computer monitors, overhead projection screens and other light-dependant, visual presentation aids can cause anything from minor annoyance to persistant eye-strain. Again window film will help combat these problems, allowing staff to work more comfortably and more productively.
Ultra Violet (UV) light does not present itself as an obvious ‘comfort-related’ problem and is often overlooked in many commercial applications – simply because it cannot be seen. However the one of the main effects of UV light is the damage it can cause to interior furnishings, products, display items and so on.
Window film comes with its own built-in UV inhibitor as standard, and once correctly installed rejects 99% of the ultra violet light, approximately 70% to 80% of the sun’s solar energy and cuts down 85% of the annoying glare.
