    December 2, 2014 | 9 comments

    Understanding how high-performance window film works and what it can offer to commercial buildings is the first step in deciding whether it will be an effective energy-efficiency option for your organization. But even after you learn about window film’s benefits, it can still be challenging to know what type will address your building’s unique requirements. (more…)


  3. What Window Film Can’t Do

    August 12, 2014 | 0 comments

    The right window film can improve the insulating capacity of existing commercial windows by up to 92% – an impressive and impactful number. Installing newer low-e films can offer single-pane windows the same insulating performance as double-pane windows, and provide double-pane windows the same insulating performance as triple-pane windows.

    Despite what high-performance window film can do – reduce solar heat gain during warmer months, keep heat indoors during cooler months, decrease HVAC loads, reduce glare, eliminate hot/cold spots, lessen reliance on electric lighting, and maintain outdoor views – there are some window problems that window film isn’t meant to solve.

  6. Comparing Window Film and Window Shades

    May 20, 2014 | 5 comments

    Sunlight can be extremely valuable for improving health and productivity. But if the sun’s UV rays are not controlled, they can cause damage to skin, floors and furniture, artwork, wallcoverings, and display merchandise.

    Window film is a viable option for controlling UV rays, but it certainly isn’t the only option. How does window film stack up when compared to the most obvious sun-blocking alternative: window shades and blinds? (more…)


  7. Think About Window Film First

    April 15, 2014 | 4 comments

    Because of the benefits it offers to commercial buildings, energy-efficient window film is one of the first green investments you may want to consider – before HVAC upgrades, lighting retrofits, or new windows. The right window film can help your building save energy and reduce demand, but it may also extend the life of your facility’s furniture and furnishings, lengthen HVAC system lifecycle, reduce heating and cooling loads, improve interior comfort, and reduce the amount of artificial light needed.

  8. Security Window Film Adds Layer of Valuable Protection

    January 21, 2014 | 0 comments

    When you think about ways to add a layer of security to your building, window film may not be what first comes to mind. Video surveillance and access control can only provide so much protection; by investing in window film, commercial building owners can provide additional protection for tenants and occupants.

    Protective window film – or window film with safety features – can help provide a barrier that holds glass in place upon impact.Instead of sending dangerous shards flying into the air, security window film can help hold glass in place to offer additional protection to people inside who otherwise could be seriously injured from broken glass or glass shards.

    November 13, 2013 | 0 comments

    Taking the necessary time and investment to winterize your commercial building can be well worth your effort. Severe U.S. winter weather has caused more than $250 million in industrial and commercial property damage in the last decade.
