While this time of year is one during which many of us retreat indoors a little more often than may have been the case during the summer, that doesn’t necessarily mean excessive heat ceases to be an issue.
The British weather has long been unpredictable in that way, of course. However, it may be that while you are enjoying your conservatory, you soon become aware of what heat reduction films like those from the Opalux brand could do for your experience of using such a building.
Polycarbonate windows and traditional window film sadly don’t mix
Unfortunately, if you were concerned about the adverse effects of high levels of ultraviolet rays (UV) and heat passing through your plastic conservatory rooflight to the space below – for example, discomfort for the users of the conservatory, or the quick deterioration of interior fabrics – you would probably be left dissatisfied by a ‘conventional’ reflective window film.
That’s because – as effective as such heat reduction films can undoubtedly be when applied to glass – they can have a tendency to bubble up if they are instead fitted to a plastic surface.
Thankfully, we have the perfect alternative product here at Opalux, in the form of our solar reflective film for polycarbonate windows and rooflights. There are both interior and exterior variants of this product available, depending on your preferences and requirements, and both have an exceptional track record of helping to make conservatories and similar buildings much pleasanter places to be, whatever the season.
Films that answer all of your pressing needs
While the interior version of this film is the renowned translucent metallised Opalux Suncool product (SO-10SC-iBF) that has its own great reputation for providing immediate shading and relief from the sun’s rays, the exterior version (SO-20RS-eBFSR) should also not be overlooked.
The latter film is, of course, designed to be installed on the outside surface of a polycarbonate window or rooflight, and brings a host of benefits – including impeccable solar heat and glare reduction and one-way privacy during the day.
As aforementioned, you may also specify such films as the above if you are worried about the lifespan of your furniture and furnishings being shortened as a result of them being constantly exposed to the harshness of the sun. Sure enough, these particular heat reduction films are highly trusted as a solution in this regard, thanks to their powerful filtering of damaging UV rays.
