Your Privacy Window Film Options Are Here, Gainesville! The right window film gives you peace of mind and the sense of security that comes from knowing your private life is kept … well … private. Our window film products create all the effects of privacy without forfeiting your view. Actually, the Solar Gard window film line allows natural lighting while eliminating glare. It also preserves the color of your flooring and furnishings by blocking 99% of UV rays. Depending on the film, Solar Gard fends off up to 87% of all solar heat. This enhances the climate and comfort of your home – and it saves you dollars on your energy bills, which is especially the case when paired with Polywood shutters. Where solar and reflective films are concerned, Solar Gard window films give you an array of choices in energy efficiency. During your in-home consultation, we walk you through all your options and make sure the type of film you select meets your needs. Here are the performance criteria we look at when comparing 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 affected 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 cause of fading and discoloration in furnishings and materials. What’s more, our window films are crafted to hold the glass onto the film – especially 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 eliminate the risk of broken glass, the benefits of your expertly installed Solar Gard window film are clear.
