The havoc that ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun can cause in all manner of buildings should never be underestimated. Even premises where there may not seem to be much in need of protection can suffer from excessive UV, which is responsible for warping and cracking wood, fading the colours of fabrics and even damaging artworks over time.
Then, there are the rather more sensitive and specialised settings in which solar protection window film may be needed, such as museums and retail stores.
This is why it is so fortunate that we are able to supply the highest standard of enhanced UV protection film here at Opalux – but here are some of the things that you should know before ordering.
Going beyond standard UV protection
One of the great advantages of choosing Opalux for your own premises’ polyester window film is the fact that all such products we manufacture contain UV absorbers rendering them capable of blocking up to 99% of UV rays in the 300 to 380-nanometer range of the solar spectrum.
However, there may also be circumstances in which you require enhanced UV protection covering up to 400 nanometers and beyond. This is precisely what is provided by our Specialist UV Control – Clear film (SO-CLUV-iSR), which surpasses the requirements of leading conservation experts who have researched ultraviolet filters.
This film is not only able to be installed quickly, but is also scratch-resistant and depended on for the protection of exhibits, displays and furnishings from UV radiation.
But it is our UV Control – Amber 81 solar protection window film (SO-AMUV-iSR) that is even more impressive, its amber colour signalling its exceptional blocking capability. Like the SO-CLUV-iSR film, it exceeds the standard museum test requirements for low UV transmission and colour distortion. But it goes even further than this, providing excellent blocking up to 400 nanometers and keeping transmissions below 10% right through to 500 nanometers.
