Whether as a specifier or end user, you might have noticed the brightening skies and creeping temperatures in recent weeks, and considered the implications that this will have for the buildings for which you have responsibility, and the people using such premises.

Solar Protection Window Film
As effective as dedicated solar protection window film can be for such crucial purposes as reducing glare and heat that could otherwise pass through glazing and pose discomfort for the occupants of a building, this type of film often comes with an obvious drawback: the visual one.
For many of those seeking to purchase our solar protection window film here at Opalux, there can often be a friction between the competing priorities of aesthetics and practicality. Yes, you are probably motivated to order such window film in the first place due to a wish to better protect a building’s occupants from the adverse effects of excessive heat and glare... but a given film not having the right look for the building for which it is intended, could be a deal-breaker.
We take a lot of pride here at Opalux in supplying solar protection window film that caters to even the most exacting requirements, especially at a time of year like this one, when it can be so important to invest in a product that ticks a wide range of boxes.
Your first priority as a potential buyer of solar protection window film is likely to be to invest in a product that repels excessive heat gain and glare from entering your organisation’s buildings. However, it almost certainly won’t be your only priority – and nor should it be.
After all, our own broad selection of solar protection window film encompasses such options as solar reflective film, low mirror film and clear heat control film.
If the amount of solar heat and glare that penetrates your organisation’s buildings is a problem affecting the comfort and productivity of your workers, an obvious step is to invest in appropriate solar protection window film.
But what makes our externally applied reflective films an especially sound choice? Here are just five of their qualities.
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.
