Homeowners doing online research will discover that there are solar control coatings that block heat while maintaining the appearance of your windows and sliders.
These non-reflective films meet deed restrictions and Home Owner Association rules that prohibit reflective films.
The challenge for window film manufacturers was to develop a coating that filters out large quantities of heat while keeping the amount of light transmission high.
Reflective films certainly filter out heat, light UV and glare but again they create challenges for the deed restrictions and do alter the appearance of the glass.
Non reflective dyed films are one alternative but the solar absorption is generally too high for IG glass units and the dyes wear down very quickly under the relentless Florida sunshine.
The solution was the patented dual layer ceramic films developed by Huper Optik.
Huper Optik ceramic and spectrally selective films filter out IR wavelengths (invisible light spectrum) and an assortment of light transmissions depending upon the film selected.
It’s important to note that there are no dyes in the Huper series while our 3M competition offers multi-layered Prestige film with dyes.
Huper Optik is available in darker light transmissions that offer greater glare and fade protection while the lighter 35% to 70% light transmissions block nearly 70% of the total solar energy.
The bottom line is maximum heat rejection with a better light ratio than any competitive coating.
Since these coatings are less reflective than glass your HOA will quickly approve.
