What About It?
As windows are notoriously poor at insulating buildings, some manufacturers have developed speciality insulating films. These films are designed to be installed directly to your existing glazing and can increase the insulating properties of your windows by >41%.
As a cost effective alternative to window replacement these films meet the needs of the more cost conscious project manager or home owner. Perfect for listed building managers that cannot install double or triple glazing or for homeowners that do not wish to go through the hassle and expense of replacing their current windows with upgraded double or triple glazing.
As a comparison, these films give close to the same benefits as upgrading your windows with an extra pane of glass at a fraction of the cost and an ROI through energy savings in as much as 5% of the time it takes window replacement to pay back.

Are the films for this service tinted/reflective?
Our most recommended film for insulating properties has very high visible light transmittance with just enough “tint” to break harsh light, you can barely tell it’s on the window. Reflections are a common concern of a lot of our new customers. You’ll find that the interior light reflectance is marginally lower than that of glass without film and the exterior is marginally more reflective. This ensures that your view from the inside is close to perfect, by that we mean better than without film!
