Why Solar Film?
The sun is continually bombarding our world with broad spectrum solar radiation. Most of this radiation is absorbed traveling through the atmosphere.
The radiation received on earth ranges from low frequency invisible ultra-violet light, to visible light and infra-red (heat), through to high frequency radio and X-ray waves.
Windows and glass doors are a major source of heat gain, causing hot uncomfortable living and working conditions, over-loading air conditioning systems and increasing running and maintenance costs.
In bright sunlight, the heat on glass is intense, for example every 5.5m2 of glass area will admit 640 watts/m2 of heat per hour. This is equivalent of 1hp of air conditioning.
Furthermore, working and living conditions become uncomfortable. To add to the discomfort, the sun’s ultra-violet rays cause fading of expensive home and office furnishings as well as stock displayed in shop windows.
The Benefits of Our Solar Film
Solar window films can do much to take the sting out of the sun’s hot rays. When applied to windows and glass doors, our solar window film can stop up to 82% of the sun’s solar energy, thus reducing heat and glare and improving living and working conditions. Jim’s Window Tinting proudly supplies quality solar window film for homes and businesses, ensuring you get the best in protection.
Solar window films reject over 99% of the sun’s ultra-violet light which is the primary cause of fading of curtains, carpets, furniture and fittings.
Window film provides excellent thermal insulation. Up to 82% of solar energy that would normally come through your windows or glass doors is rejected, making living and working conditions more comfortable. In winter, some solar window films can also reduce winter heat loss through glazed areas by up to 47%, it’s like double glazing for your house, as they act as an insulator (Low E films) at a fraction of the cost of double glazing,
