Sun protection films

Their structure is made of an adhesive polyester multilayer. They are very thin films capable of filtering and reflecting solar energy, obtaining protection from heat, glare, and discoloration. They can be applied on any glass surface.

SUN PROTECTION FILMS

Applications

The application of a sunscreen film transforms your window into a reflective surface that does not allow viewing inwards while maintaining unaltered outwards visibility.

This type of film finds its best application in all those situations that not only present problems of heat and reflection but also require privacy. The glass maintains transparency from the inside, allowing you to take advantage of natural light and making the environment more comfortable.
These benefits are in line with the directives of the Consolidated Safety Act 81 for protection in the workplace.

Not only do solar protection films combine all the comfort features (resolution of thermal problems, glare, etc); sunscreen films can also be an alternative to the aesthetic renovation of the building, thanks to the wide range of metallization and colors available.

SUN PROTECTION FILMS

Nautical

Modern cruise ships are like large traveling hotels. They have large, glazed spaces such as indoor promenades, gyms, lounges, and so on.

In this context, solar protection films are widely used to solve the issues worsened by the sun and the sea glare. Even in the most extreme situations, the comfort inside the rooms is guaranteed.
The field of application can also be extended to pleasure boats.

For the control panels, custom-made film curtains can be installed as an alternative to films.

SUN PROTECTION FILMS

Pros

Once installed, all sunscreen films, help reject radiated solar energy up to 80% during the summer.
The result will be:

  • greater well-being due to the elimination of the greenhouse effect.
  • air conditioning system electricity saving and consequent reduction of maintenance costs due to less usage.
  • elimination of glare reflections, external visibility unchanged and proportional reduction of the excess brightness of the environment.
  • protection from discoloration and aging of what exposed to sunlight such as furniture, paintings, curtains, or goods displayed in the window. Remember that the discoloration is caused for 70% by ultraviolet rays present in the solar spectrum and that our films manage to reject up to 99,5% of them.
  • temperature uniformity throughout the environment.
  • uselessness of the external curtains and longer duration of the internal ones.

 

The sunscreen films, allow to reduce the heat loss through the glass surfaces from 14% to 33%, during the winter. The result will be:

  • saving fuel for heating.
  • strong attenuation of the cold areas next to the windows. Remember that the heat loss of a glass surface is approximately 7 times higher compared to the that of a masonry surface
  • advantages like those already mentioned such as anti-fading, anti-glare, etc.

Anti-glare

A very important feature present in every film is the  anti-glare . It contrasts the annoying glare, making the environment restful and significantly reducing visual fatigue. The sunscreen films therefore comply with the Community regulations, according to which the control of passing light is prescribed in the workplace.

All films are installed without causing discomfort or interrupting activities and are designed for lasting long.

They are provided with anti-scratch protection, therefore they do not require maintenance. They can be washed normally using common glass detergents, as long as they are not aggressive, corrosive or abrasive.

Anti-Discoloration

The main causes of discoloration and deterioration are the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) rays that form the solar spectrum.
The application of anti-fading films is recommended for the protection of the goods displayed in shop windows and fundamental in all those environments that host works of art and precious furnishings.

The specific films for shop windows, museums and homes, reduce UV by 99.5% and infrared by 40%, effectively protecting against discoloration and aging. They do not alter the colors of the exposed materials and maintain the internal brightness.

SUN PROTECTION FILMS

Technology

The sunscreen films are composed of a self-adhesive polyester multilayer. They are produced with a high-tech manufacturing process, starting from a polyester base, on which a coating of aluminum vapors and / or other metals is placed, capable of giving the film a high power of reflection, transparency, and absence of optical distortions.
Subsequent overlapping of polyester laminates gives the final product characteristics of resistance to abrasion and corrosion, resulting in its long life.

There are many types of solar protection films, and each one of them can solve specific problems. They differ in the type of metallization; basically, the methods to obtain it are two:
vaporization of metals – initially used and still valid today to obtain high protection at low costs.
sputtering – used to achieve a perfectly uniform metallization over the entire surface, obtaining more passing light for the same rejected energy.

  • all films – without distinction – block the ultraviolet rays by 99.5%
  • they comply with class M1 for fire protection

What are they for?

They help reject the heat (IR rays) that passes through the glass, without altering its transparency.

Where do they apply?

On any glass surface.
The application is simple, quickly performed without interrupting normal activity.

How do they work?

They select, according to the needs, the main energy components that form the solar spectrum.

What do we get?

An air-conditioned environment, with significant energy savings.
