Solar Control Window Film Options

With global energy costs soaring and concern for the environment rising, building owners are ever mindful of conserving energy and reducing carbon emissions.

For some of the world’s most recognised buildings, window film has been proven to deliver annual energy savings up to 15%, and reducing carbon emissions. Window Film improves the performance of existing glazing systems to reduce excessive solar heat gain, increasing the efficiency of air conditioning and lowering energy costs. Window film can also improve the insulating properties of windows, reducing heating costs by preventing heat from escaping in cooler seasons. In total, these savings help window film pay for itself in as few as 1-5 years.

It has been established that one-third of a typical building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows, and that up to 75% of existing windows may not be energy efficient. By having approved energy saving solar films applied you will be helping to improve energy conservation, saving money and realising ‘star rating’ efficiency.

Reducing carbon emissions and energy consumption may benefit the environment, but solar window film also improves a building’s internal environment by eliminating hot and cold spots, reducing distracting glare, and rejecting more than 99% of harmful UV rays. Blocking these damaging UV rays can also help to protect the appearance and value of fabrics, furnishings and artwork, all of which can be irreparably damaged or faded by allowing the sun to pass through untreated glass.

Safety and Security window film

In today’s world, crime, vandalism, terrorism, natural disasters, and everyday accidents are real concerns. Made with thick, heavy-duty polyester bonded by strong adhesives, Safety and Security films provide an optically clear yet powerful barrier that helps hold glass in place should impact occur. Danger from windborne debris, seismic tremors, and accidental impact can be greatly reduced. Safety and security film is also ideal for use in high-traffic areas with windows or other surfaces vulnerable to “smash-and-grab” theft or vandalism.

From corporate and retail to hospitality and educational applications, high-performance films can help control or even eliminate the danger and damage caused by broken glass in new construction and retrofit projects.

Anti-Graffitti Films

Many cities in the world are experiencing the growing problem of vandals tagging glass and other surfaces in public places using mechanical etching tools, acid, and paint.

Anti-Graffiti film is now the front running solution to cost-effectively mitigating damage. These specially designed films, almost invisible once installed, provide a removable, sacrificial surface that can reduce or eliminate the need for expensive glass or other surface replacement. A single replacement of just one window can easily exceed ten or twenty times the cost of film installation. Anti-Graffiti films are ideal for use in houses, shops, and high traffic areas including buses and trains.

Whether they are applied to vertical or sloped glass, on mirrors or stainless steel, in malls, on buses and trains, or in office buildings – Installation and replacement by professionally trained WFAANZ members is quick and easy, avoiding the disruption caused by window or other surface replacement. When vandals strike, the film is simply removed along with the tags, revealing the unspoiled glass or other surface, ready for the replacement sacrificial film.

Decorative, Designer or Privacy Films

Decorative films offer subtle and stylish solutions for any privacy glazing application. As an attractive, convenient, and affordable alternative to etched glass, decorative, designer and privacy films can also reduce glare and increase privacy on any flat glass application. The scratch-resistant coating ensures long-lasting good looks and easy maintenance.

Decorative film can cater for unlimited design possibilities, allowing to bring vibrant color, visual effects, textured feel, and graphic patterns to nearly any glass surface. Customize a space with a corporate logo or signage. Offering endless choices for architects and interior designers including frosted, opaque, coloured, printed, translucent and sparkle and pre-printed effects.

The traditional method of acid etched patterned glass is an expensive option. It is time consuming and costly to install, difficult to maintain, and virtually impossible to alter. By contrast, decorative, designer and privacy films offer the same look at a fraction of the cost, and can be easily changed when a new look is needed. They are also easily maintained with approved glass cleaner.

The range of privacy films allow light in, while reducing visual intrusion, making it an excellent choice for office partitions, restaurants and shop fronts. Privacy film also eliminates the need for blinds, maintaining the aesthetics of a building’s environment.

By reducing annoying glare, decorative, designer and privacy films can reduce eye strain and improve conditions for office employees and building tenants.

Window Film for Night Time

Night time ranges of window films cut down internal reflection to deliver sensational views night and day. One of the shortcomings with traditional solar films is internal reflection, particularly at night. For those inside looking out, the window becomes a mirror, reflecting your image and that of the furniture, distorting the view. Night time window film delivers on reducing heat loss and gain and UV glare.

Benefits

  • very low internal reflection night or day
  • excellent glare reduction, up to 93%
  • provides daytime privacy
  • rejects over 99% of harmful UV rays
  • up to 73% solar heat rejection
  • reduces energy costs all year round
  • attractive low sheen grey appearance
  • externally and internally
  • 12 year commercial warranty
  • lifetime residential warranty

Low-E Film

Low E Film is a revolutionary glass insulation technology that outsmarts sunlight and helps save energy, reduce costs and increase comfort all year long. It’s been in the making for many years, and now results in a patent-pending Low-E coating that has no peer in the window film industry, outperforming both standard and in some cases, performance glass. Low-E Window Films have been designed with similar thermal performance to Double Glazing at almost a quarter of the price.

A much cheaper option to double glazing
Low-E Window Films allow all the efficiencies of a glazing upgrade, to either a single glazed window or a clear double glazed unit and all without the expense, inconvenience and impact on the environment of window replacement.   Low-E Window Film actually transforms poorly insulating windows into highly energy efficient windows.

Working all year round, Low-E Window Films are in a similar major energy-saving category as high efficiency lighting, roof and wall insulation and heating and cooling systems. Low-E films are not necessarily the best option in all instances. Check with your installer for advice.
