Your Privacy Window Film Options Are Here, Fort Myers! The ideal window film gives you peace of mind and the assuredness of security that comes from knowing your private life will remain … well … private. Our window film products create all the effects of privacy without forgoing your view. As a matter of fact, the Solar Gard window film line lets in natural lighting while eliminating glare. In addition, it preserves the color of your flooring and furnishings by blocking 99% of UV rays. Accounting for variations from film to film, Solar Gard wards off up to 87% of all solar heat. This enhances the climate and comfort of your home – and it saves you money on your energy bills, which is particularly when combined with Polywood shutters. When considering solar and reflective films, Solar Gard window films give you an assortment of choices in energy efficiency. During your in-home consultation, we guide you through all your options and make sure the type of film you choose meets your needs. Here are the performance criteria we use to compare window films: Solar energy transmittance: the amount of solar energy – visible, infrared, and ultraviolet – that passes through the film. The lower the percentage, the less heat passes through into your home.Solar energy absorbance: the amount of solar energy that is absorbed by the film. The higher the number, the more heat the glass absorbs and the less your room is impacted by external temperature fluctuations.Emissivity: a measure of a surface’s ability to emit/reflect long-wave infrared radiant heat energy (thermal heat, room temperature). Emissivity varies from 0 to 1 (0 = no emittance, 1 = 100% emittance). The lower the emissivity, the lower the U-value.U-value: a measure of thermal, room temperature heat transfer through film attributable to the difference between indoor and outdoor temperatures. The lower the U-value, the less heat passes through the film and glass. A lower U-value is what to look for to prevent heat loss.Shading coefficient: the ratio between solar energy transmittance through clear, unshaded double-strength glass under the same conditions. The lower the value, the better the solar control efficiency of the glazing system.Solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC): the percentage of solar energy directly transmitted through the window and absorbed by the glass and re-radiated inside. The lower the SHGC, the better the solar control properties of the film.Ultraviolet rejection: the percent of invisible, high-energy wavelengths emitted by the sun, which is the primary reason for fading and discoloration in furnishings and materials. Not to mention that our window films are designed to hold the glass onto the film – which comes in handy when your window breaks. Without this capability, harmful glass shards would fall into the room when the glass is broken. You no longer need to fear the neighborhood kid’s line drive! Whether you want to protect your interior furnishings from sunlight damage, sustain a cooler climate in your home, or reduce the risk of broken glass, the benefits of your skillfully installed Solar Gard window film are clear.
