Windows allow us to enjoy outdoor views and a naturally lit space. However, they can also open up our space to discomfort, as the sun’s light creates glare, hot spots, and uncomfortable interior temperatures. Not to mention, UV rays can enter through windows with the sun’s light, causing furniture and flooring to fade over time. Luckily, solar window film allows you to reap the benefits of windows without having to deal with the adverse side effects! However, with so many solar window film products available, it can be hard to know which is best for your space. Check out our guide to find the perfect film for your home or office!
Reflective Window Film
Reflective Window Film rejects harmful UV rays and reduces bothersome glare from the sun. In addition, Reflective Window Film rejects the sun’s heat, creating more comfortable interiors while lowering energy bills. The main differentiating factor in Reflective Window Film is that it gives windows a mirrored, silver look when viewed from both the outside and the inside.
Dual-Reflective Window Film
Dual-Reflective Window Film offers all the benefits of Reflective Window Film! It can reject up to 99% of UV rays, create comfortable interiors, and provide clear views. However, the difference is that it gives a mirrored exterior appearance, but the interior appearance is more subtle. So instead of seeing your reflection inside, you’ll have an easier time seeing out.
Deluxe Window Film
Like Reflective and Dual-Reflective Window Film, Deluxe Window Film rejects UV rays, heat, and glare. However, it does so without a mirrored appearance. This results in a uniform look that maintains the appearance of your home or office’s exterior.
Neutral Window Film
Neutral Window Film offers a more subtle look with benefits like lower energy bills, increased comfort, and UV protection. It has a less reflective appearance than our other window film products. Therefore the exterior appearance of your building won’t change as much as it would with Reflective Window Film or Dual-Reflective Window Film.
Exterior Window Film
Exterior Window Film rejects heat, glare, and UV rays. The differentiating factor of Exterior Window Film is its scratch-resistant coating. This film is equipped to handle outdoor elements, making it the ideal choice for an exterior installation.
Low-E Window Film
Low-E Window Film lowers energy bills and maintains comfortable interior temperatures all year long. In the summer, it works to reject the sun’s heat to create comfortable temperatures. In addition, it improves the insulating properties of windows to retain manmade heat in cool winter months. No matter the season, Low-E Window Film provides lower energy bills and improved comfort.
Ceramic Window Film
Ceramic Window Film provides the typical solar control benefits like glare reduction and heat rejection. However, its nano-ceramic technology means this film is metal-free. As a result, it delivers the lowest reflectivity, so the exterior appearance of your space is virtually unchanged. Not to mention, this material can withstand salty air in coastal areas, making it an excellent choice for those who may have a residential or commercial space on the coast.
Harmony Window Film
Harmony Window Film allows you to achieve beautiful clear views without impacting the look of your home or office’s exterior. It is low in reflectivity and made with nano-ceramic technology. As a result, you’ll enjoy a naturally lit space without the glare, hot spots, and harmful UV rays.
Spectrally-Selective Window Film
Spectrally-Selective Window Film works to reject more infrared rays than visible light. As a result, natural light will enter freely through windows, but this film will reject the sun’s heat. Enjoy a sunlit space without the adverse side effects!
