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…
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.

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!
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!
