There are many reasons why an organisation, office complex, small business or home owners will want to film the existing windows within its premises.

Window filming not only enhances the visual appeal of your property, it also:

  • Increases security - protection against vandal or terror attacks
  • Privacy - allowing you to look out but preventing others from looking in
  • Solar control by blocking out over 99% of harmful UV radiation
  • Heat reduction of up to 70%, keeping the insides of your property cool during summers
  • Dramatically reduces air conditioning costs
  • Improves energy efficiency by reducing heating loss during cold winters
  • Reduces dangerous glare in strong sunlight
  • Reduces fading to domestic and household items from direct sunlight
  • Increases skin protection
  • Holds shattered glass together reducing the risk of injury in case of an accident or break-in. Some films even hold the glass in one piece in the frame
  • Prevents scratches to the glass by providing a barrier

The Benefits

Solar protection - Solar controlled films can be installed to your premises glass to reduce glare by up to 83%, preventing eye strain from items such as monitors and screens. Heat level within a building can be dramatically reduced by as much as 70%, making it a more comfortable. 99% of ultra violet (UV) radiation is blocked from the sun once our films are installed. This not only contributes to furniture, fabric, photograph fade protection, it also protects individuals that are directly in the sun's path, preventing serious skin complaints.

For maximum energy efficiency, highly reflective heat retention films will reduce heat and glare issues in the summer months, reducing the use of air conditioning and lighting. Whilst In winter months, the film will retain the heat from heating systems, limiting the amount of heat lost through windows. Reducing heating and lighting bills 12 months of the year will allow for savings to be made that can be utilised in other areas.

Privacy - Installed to the existing window or door glass of your property, privacy films will allow unrestricted views out onto your neighbourhood, allowing you to see out but preventing others from seeing in. You can simply look out of the window and nobody will be able to tell that your there. With some of our more reflective films, it would be possible for an intruder to press against the glass looking in and not notice you standing looking at them just a foot away from the window, a very valuable and effective security measure. Privacy films will allow you to see who is at the door before opening it, allowing you to check their credentials without them seeing who is on the other side.

Safety / Security - The installation of Security, Solar or combined Security and Solar films to window glass of Commercial buildings, Schools, Colleges etc can play a major part in protecting occupants and staff from health and safety issues or threats whilst enhancing the look of the property. Sunguard Window films can ensure all safety issues have been addressed whilst reducing heat, glare and Ultraviolet radiation. Conforming to all British and European standards, the installation of our films to the existing glass of your building will ensure that the building is secure whilst being energy efficient, reducing heating and lighting costs and maintaining a pleasant environment.

In extreme security situations a High tensile Polyester film can be installed to the existing glass of the building which will strengthen the glass to Government and consumer programme standards BS6206 and EN12600. A Gull Wing System can be used to anchor the security film onto the window frame. The glass will withstand a barrage of abuse from a variety of weapons, protecting the glass and more importantly the items located within the building, preventing entry. This type of film has been installed to high profile buildings in major cities all over the world in the fight against theft and vandalism or even possible threats of terrorism.

Conservatories - With excessive heat and glare build up, your conservatory is un-bearable to use and enjoy, resorting to closing blinds and curtains in an attempt to reduce the levels of heat. Sunguard window films can be installed to the existing glass and they will significantly reduce the heat and glare at a faction of the cost compared to blinds with far more benefits.
