We are exposed to glass windows every day, whether we are sitting in the conservatory at home, we are out shopping or if we work in an office, so the fact that windows play such a vital role in our lives means that they should be a priority of care. After all, there are many problems that we have that are due to windows that we don’t realise that we can easily solve.

Enter, window film!

Window film is a product that can be easily applied to a window’s surface to improve the existing glazing system, and the best part is, that you can’t even see it (unless you want to)!

With so many different types of window films that satisfy different uses, it’s no surprise that they also solve a variety of problems. That’s why we’ve put this handy list of problems that window film can solve together, just to show you how amazing the product is!

Window film can…

Provide Privacy

Problem: Although the majorities of burglaries take place during the night, a business that has big windows can allow criminals to see what valuable assets they have to offer during the day.

Solution: Window Film can provide daytime privacy whatever floor you’re on, whether you just require tinting or you want a full blown mirror effect so that you can see out but no-one can see in. One way vision films are great to provide employee privacy whilst also increasing the security of your business.

 

Provide Safety and Security

Problem: Windows are the weakest security measure in any business, so with threat levels on the rise, it’s never been so important to ensure that these can’t be exploited. Employee safety is also a concern for employers as serious injuries can occur when glass is shattered.

Solution: Window Film can provide both safety and security to a company by increasing the strength of the windows, making them harder to break, and holding the glass in place if they were to shatter. Not only does is this an ideal and inexpensive solution to replacing all glass windows, but it is also one of the best ways to prevent serious injury that could result from broken glass.

Reduce Glare

Problem: You wouldn’t think so, especially in the UK, but solar glare is an all year round problem. Whether it is the low Winter sun or the intense Summer rays, glare can affect us at work or at home, affecting our visual acuity and comfort and making the use of devices with a screen almost impossible.

Solution: Window Film reduces solar glare by 95% without compromising on the level of natural sunlight. Unlike blinds, film is also inexpensive to install and doesn’t require regular maintenance as it doesn’t collect dust!

Reduce Fading

Problem: We love the sun but its UV rays and the heat it produces is not good for our fabrics! If you have furniture in your conservatory or work in retail with big shop displays, you will know first-hand how the sun fades our fabrics, upholstery, and carpets over time.

Solution: Window Film can help to reduce fading as it filters out 99% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Although all fabrics fade naturally over time, film helps them to last much longer!

Provide Temperature Control

Problem: A lot of energy and money goes into temperature control, whether we are heating our houses or heating and cooling buildings to create the ideal work environment. In today’s society, there is also the added pressure of reducing energy use, so how do we balance the two?

Solution: Window Film is a great energy-saving measure as not only does it reduce excessive heat gain through your windows, but it also makes it harder for heat to escape through the glass. This makes it the perfect tool for reducing energy consumption and energy costs whilst also providing increased comfort with the perfect temperature.

Save You Money!

Problem: Energy is expensive but there is still a high demand for its use and companies have a duty of care to their employees to provide a comfortable work environment.

Solution: Window Films are one of the best energy management solutions, both in terms of energy efficiency and energy savings!

 

The great thing about window films, as well as them being a cost-effective glazing solution, is that they come in a variety of different formats to solve specific problems, so they can satisfy your practical and aesthetic needs whatever they may be!

What we may consider being minor problems can cause further problems over time, and this is a real issue for many organisations. For example, the sun that streams through the windows of your office may not seem like such a big deal at the time. However, the hotter it gets, the more uncomfortable workers get and therefore their productivity suffers. The heat build-up can also lead to more serious problems such as the exacerbation of medical conditions such as asthma.

So what is the solution?

3M Prestige Window Film

Many organisations have their own specific issues that they don’t realise can be easily solved with window film. It may seem surprising, such a simple solution, yet all these different organisations and their variety of issues can all be solved by this one product!

There are many different types of window film in the 3M Prestige series, depending on the needs of the user, but each film provides benefits that would be invaluable to many organisations.

  1. Offices

  1. Retail Stores

Any shop that has windows or window displays and who needs to regulate the temperature of their environment would benefit from using window film.

Even cake shops, bakeries, and cafes could benefit from installing window film, as the reduction of heat passing through the windows would mean that the food would take longer to spoil.

A major problem in offices that have large or many windows, is both heat and glare; heat that can create discomfort, especially for employees stationed near windows, and glare on the computer screens which can impact employee productivity.

So what is the solution?

As business owners, we have a duty of care to our employees and we know that creating a comfortable and functional workplace is essential for productivity. One of the ways you can do this is by installing Solar Control Window Film.

Solar Control Window Film is a simple and effective solution to fixing problems associated with heat and glare, as it reduces up to 85% of heat build-up from the sun and up to 95% of the glare from the sun. What many employers don’t know, however, is the many other benefits that it can give you.

Benefits of Solar Control Window Film

Window Film Improves Office Productivity

Put simply, comfortable workers are more productive workers, so creating a comfortable working environment should be at the top of your priority list. In an office space where there are lots of windows, using window film can help to reduce glare, hotspots and fluctuating temperatures, as well as reducing the glare to soften the lighting of the space. By balancing the temperature of the office and creating a light that is easier on the eyes, you’ll find that you can maintain a comfortable (and productive!) work environment all year-round.

Window Film Improves Workplace Health and Safety

As said previously, as employers, we have a duty of care to our employees. You can ensure that you protect the health of your workers when you install window film. Why? Because of many reasons! Firstly, window film protects your workers more from harmful UVA and UVB rays, which reduces their risk of developing skin cancer and other serious health issues in the future. Secondly, by reducing the heat build-up and glare on computers, you can prevent the exacerbation of illnesses such as asthma and reduce headaches from working on a dimly lit screen.

Window Film Provides the Office with Privacy and Security

Your duty of care also extends to the safety of your employees, so window film provides you with the privacy and security in order to do this. As glass and windows can be one of the most vulnerable parts of a commercial building, you can opt for a darker tinted film to reduce the risk of break-ins or you could choose a thick, security window film that is shatter-resistant. Whichever you choose, window film is a simple and cost-effective solution to reduce the risk of burglary or personal injury, as well as reducing distractions to increase productivity!

Window Film Saves You Money

Yes, window film can save you money! In offices spaces that have many windows, the costs of maintaining a consistent balanced climate (e.g using the heating in the winter and the air conditioning in the summer) are very high. With window film, you can reduce heat in the summer by 15 degrees, eliminating the need for air conditioning and therefore saving you money on energy, whilst in the winter, it also helps to keep the heat in, again saving you money.

As well as lowering your energy and operating costs, window film protects everything in your interior space. How many times have you had to replace merchandise, carpets or draperies that have faded? How many times have you had to replace equipment that has overheated or even melted slightly? By using window films on your windows, you can protect your assets to ensure that your investments last longer.

Lastly, if you’re creating an environment that is comfortable, you will find that fewer employees will be off sick and more will be working and working productively!

 

So, it is as simple as that. Something as simple as a Solar Control Window Film can prevent heat gain, heat loss and glare to create a comfortable environment for your workers, increasing both productivity and reducing running costs. That way, you can put more money back into your workers and your company so it is a win-win situation for everybody!

Nothing is worse than getting that brand new conservatory that you’ve always wanted and when summer comes around, you can’t use it! If you have a conservatory or have worked in an office with big windows, then you know exactly what we mean.

When the sun is beating down on your windows, people suffer with:

  • Intolerable Heat
  • Uncomfortable Glare 
  • Faded Fabrics and Furniture

All of which prevent you from using your conservatory in the summer months, the time when you want to use it most! So what is the solution? Is there even anything that can help regulate the interior temperature, whilst also reducing glare and fading?

In short - YES!

Conservatory

We Have the Solution: Solar Control Window Film!

Fret no more! Solar Control Window Film can be applied to the glass on your conservatory roof to reduce the buildup of heat, reduce glare, and protect your fabrics from harmful UV rays. Perfect right! Now you can use your conservatory at times of the day and year that you wouldn’t have been able to before.

 

How it works

No, it’s not magic! Specifically designed to address these issues, Solar Control Window Film has a specialist reflective coating, which when applied to polycarbonate or glass roofs, prevents the steady build up of heat throughout the day by reflecting the suns heat away before it can be transmitted inside. The film also filters out 99% of UV light, protecting your conservatory contents from fading and your eyes from the unrelenting glare of the sun. Now you can watch television or read comfortably and spend your time in a much more pleasant (and cool) space! 

 

Benefits

As well as solving these three major issues, Solar Control Window Film also offers additional benefits for you and your conservatory:

  • Winter Insulation - just as the film reflects the sun away, it also reflects the heat inside, offering great insulation in the winter months and keeping you warm!
  • Inexpensive - as this film is more effective than alternatives, the investment is more than worth it!
  • Quick and Easy Installation - suitable for all types of roofs as well as internal or external installation, Solar Control Film is very simple to install!
  • No Maintenance - when professionally installed, Solar Control Film will carry a manufacturer’s warranty for 10 years and requires no additional maintenance!
  • Pleasing Appearance - you can choose your Solar Control Film from a variety of finishes; tinted film will subtly transform the appearance of the conservatory, reflective films give a more dramatic look, or neutral film blends carefully into the design and colour scheme you already have.

 

The Best Option to Reduce Heat and Glare in Your Conservatory 

Often when people think of how to reduce heat in their home, they turn to blinds. However, compared to film, blinds are more expensive, require regular cleaning and maintenance, and can have a substantial effect on the natural lighting in your home. Plus, in actual fact, blinds in conservatories tend to actually make them warmer, as the sun heats up the air between the blind and the glass, and this then circulates around the room. While this may be suitable for other rooms in the house, the conservatory should be a place that is cool, and as open and light as possible!

 

When spending thousands of pounds on a beautiful new conservatory, you want to be able to use it as much as possible to relax in and admire your garden views. With Solar Control Window Film, you can do just that! Not only does the film go unnoticed once it has been installed, but it also ensures that your conservatory stays much cooler and more comfortable all year around.
