Opalux® silver reflective solar control films offer maximum heat rejection for internally applied films, and are of particular use in combating severe solar heat gains and glare problems.
Opalux® silver reflective solar control films can also provide additional benefits such as daytime one-way privacy, uniform outside appearance, winter heating savings, and as with most Opalux films up to 99% ultraviolet light (UV) filtering.
These films help to reduce cooling costs and therefore Climate Change Levy liability by lightening the load on air conditioning equipment. Government and business organisations can use Opalux® solar control window films as an integral part of seeking to comply with the Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme and The Carbon Trust policies.
They also help to alleviate the discomfort caused by excessive heat and by glaring reflections off computer screens, assisting in compliance with the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations.
The films are applied internally and, in daytime, lend the glass a silver reflective outside appearance, whilst from the inside, the visual effect, much less noticeable, is a light tint.
