The window film industry has been around for decades. Starting in the 1960’s and evolving through these years in technological leaps of innovation in polyester, adhesives, coatings and nanotechnology.
The improvements demonstrated include incredible optical clarity, durability and efficacy against heat, glare, UV damage and privacy.
The leader in these critical benefits are the folks at Eastman Chemicals who manufacture LLumar, Vista, Huper Optik and the Suntek brands. You can find their DIY films sold under the Gila brand.
Why window film and why now?
Clear glass presents numerous issues for home and business owners. There are a long list of problems including:
- Overheated rooms.
- UV sun damage to wood floors and furnishings.
- Lack of privacy.
- Glass breakage and shatter resistance.
- High cooling costs.
These problems are particularly true for single pane clear glass, tempered clear glass sliders and dual pane IG units with little or no solar light filtering or UV protection.
To be clear it is the case that consumers can decide to replace their windows and sliders with energy efficient windows at a cost that has an incredibly high sticker price.
Window film is the smart alternative to a window replacement or simply living with your current situation.
These aftermarket films provide lasting benefits as stated above. The actual performance has been measured and confirmed by the NFRC which also rates the efficiency of new windows.
Window film will transform inefficient glass into energy smart windows at a fraction (1/10th) of a window replacement.
