While protection is a major benefit of window film, other benefits include solar control. If you have a conservatory, you’ll know first hand how bad it can get without any protection from the sun. In the winter, the room is too cold to use, and in the summer, it’s way too hot. When the temperature is just right, you then get the glare from the sun and over time, the sun fades all the furniture in the room. Sounds like a nightmare and it is.

In businesses and commercial buildings, this heat and glare can seriously affect productivity, so that’s where self-adhesive film comes in.

  • Solar film /anti-glare window film solar control, thinsulate, and anti-glare window film, all help you to regulate your interior temperatures and decrease your energy use. In a nutshell, they prevent heat loss from windows in the winter (saving you money on heating bills) and they prevent heat from entering through windows in the summer (saving you money on air conditioning).
