Beat the heat with window films this Summer


With summer right around the corner, it’s time to talk about beating the heat. After all, we want you to enjoy the warm weather (not wilt in it). So, with that in mind, we wanted to share the many benefits of window films in summer.

Window films are a cost-effective solution to combating the summer sun. Whether your office glazing could do with an upgrade or you wish your home were a haven from the heat, we are here to help!

So, if you’re interested in protecting your interiors, here are a few ways window films can ensure you have a comfortable (not costly) summer:

Temperature regulation

No one can concentrate in thirty-degree heat. And cooking? Well, that is out of the question. But what if we told you we had a solution for beating the summer sun? Installing window films in summer can limit your solar heat gain, ensuring your space remains cool and comfortable – leaving you to focus (or flambe) to your heart’s content.

If you want to enjoy the summer sun but still be able to see your computer screens, window films are the perfect solution. The anti-glare technology allows you to enjoy the natural light without reducing your visibility, making them the ideal solution for your home or office space.


Reduced energy consumption

Did you know that window films can save you up to 15% on your annual energy bill? It’s true! Installing window films in summer can significantly reduce heat build-up, helping cut the cost of your air conditioning. So, instead of competing with the summer heat, why not consider investing in solar window films?

Additional protection

We all understand the importance of wearing suncream to protect our skin throughout the summer months. But what about our homes or office interiors?

Did you know that UV exposure can cause significant damage to your equipment and can even fade your furniture? So, what’s the solution?

You guessed it – window films. Their ability to block both UVA and UVB rays could save you hundreds (if not thousands) of pounds, otherwise wasted on replacing expensive furniture and equipment.


Extra security

Consider this your bonus benefit!

Alongside all the other energy-saving, temperature regulating benefits of window films, they also provide better security. By creating an additional barrier for your glazing, you can prevent injuries and vandalism, increase privacy and even protect your building from adverse weather (when winter inevitably rolls back around).

If you ask us, that’s a pretty convincing reason to recommend window films in summer, winter, autumn and spring!
