Exterior application of an Opalux weatherable solar control film to an air conditioned building can enhance comfort and energy savings as it rejects the heat of the sun before it enters the glazing system itself.
This prevents an undue heating up of the glazing units themselves, which can happen with an interior application to the point where the glazing units start acting like radiators, and thus contributing to on-going heat build-up in the interior space.
With the advent of more sophisticated glazing units, the case for exterior application of energy control films has become increasingly compelling, allowing the use of more powerful solar heat rejecting films than might otherwise be advisable for internal application.
Opalux exterior energy control films are especially useful for application to thick or laminated glass, double or triple glazing or where you have low-E glass. Selected films can be applied to the exterior surface of almost all glazing systems reducing any possible risk to the glazing units of thermal fracture or seal failure, which might otherwise apply with an internal application
Go to HEAT AND GLARE CONTROL for the different ranges of energy control film for air-conditioned buildings. Opalux exterior grade films are available under each sub-heading giving you a wide variety of choice.
Accurate selection of film requires specialist knowledge and end-users and specifiers are encouraged to consult Opalux technical department.
Where appropriate you will be connected to an Opalux approved dealer who can discuss your requirements, visit site if necessary, and provide costings for the film installation.
