Solar rays can cause irritating glare that blinds, shades and shutters may reduce. However,
these options limit home and building owners opportunities to enjoy outside views. Draperies
and blinds are functional and common, but they can also be damaged by the sun's rays.
Ultraviolet (UV) rays can help owners save draperies, shutters and blinds from discoloration.
Most solar film can absorb up to 99.8% of UV light that causes fabrics, furnishings, floor
coverings and artwork to fade.
Film is usually applied to the interior of glass. When the treated glass is exposed to harmful
UV rays, light and infrared heat, the film can block up to 88% of those heat sources from
transferring through the glass and into interior space.
Solar film is available in a variety of shades. Today, less reflective and less darkened films
are available on the market. Nanoceramic technology has provided the window film
industry a higher visible light transmittance than traditional solar window film that may be
metalized. The agents that make up the ceramic film work just as efficiently as traditional
film and can provide comparable heat gain reduction and UV protection.
A great difference is the aesthetics of ceramic film. Because it is less reflective than
traditional film , it may also providing a better optimal view than clear glass.
