Opalux gives you a lot of options for window glare and heat control

There’s a strong likelihood that you have heard the term ‘Opalux’ before – we are one of the UK’s premier brands of architectural window film, and the situation is no different as far as solar reflective window films are concerned.

Why turn to us for solar reflective window films?

Opalux doesn’t just possess some four decades’ experience in serving customers ranging from schools, colleges and hospitals to offices, sports centres and shopping malls. That’s because, right now, we also possess all of the necessary specialist expertise to provide the very best solar reflective window films for your own organisation’s specific requirements.

Solar heat and glare penetrating through glass can be a massive problem at many premises, compromising the comfort, health and privacy of a building’s occupants, as well as potentially exposing sensitive fixtures and fittings to considerable sun-related damage over time.

We offer the specialised window film needed by your firm

The solar reflective window films that Opalux can supply reduce such heat and glare through windows by as much as 80%, which makes them an extremely wise investment for a variety of settings. However, the effectiveness of such film can be maximised further when the right choice is made among our most specialised options.

If, for instance, you do not desire the mirrored look associated with standard solar reflective window films, you may take an interest in our low mirror solar control films, which provide a more neutral, tinted appearance.

Alternatively, you might be concerned about achieving good levels of solar heat rejection without compromising the amount of daylight from which your building’s occupants benefit, leading you to consider our clear heat control films.

Or what about our solar reflective films for polycarbonate, which are a popular solution for those wishing to apply effective sun protection to polycarbonate windows or roof-lights?

Dual reflective films are also available from us, resembling our standard solar reflective window films from the outside of the building, but looking and feeling rather different from the inside, thanks to the dark grey tint of their inside-facing surface. This reduces the back-shine mirror effect that would otherwise be apparent when the lights are on after dark.
