Commercial Window Film

For modernizing and retrofit projects alike, Window Film is one of the most effective and economical methods of controlling energy cost and increasing comfort.  With an average payback of less than 3 years, window film controls overall operating costs, balance building temperatures, and reduces load on HVAC system which prolongs HVAC life.  According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manuel in the United States, approximately half of a building utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows.  Window Film can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs without replacing your windows.

Unwanted glare, and harsh sunlight can often reverse the expensive and tedious efforts of window display designers from achieving maximum visibility for display.  Solar control window films cut glare while providing UV rejection, helping to protect against fading without the use of costly and unsightly solar shades or blocking out the window.

Decorative film will help you add privacy to private spaces while making a bold design statement.  You can replicate the premium look of sandblasted glass, create unique patterns, add color, or intricate layered designs – all without sacrificing natural light or aesthetics.  It’s the perfect balance between function and style, making it ideal for almost any application.
