The installation of Solar Control window film for an immediate solution to the effects of the sun through existing glazing. Controlling heat in the summer and cold in the winter, with heat gain and heat loss through your windows, can be an expensive pastime!

Have you ever thought of Window Film installation as a solution?

  • Reduce Heat and Hot Spots in your Building
  • Reduce the use of air-conditioning with subsequent energy and financial savings
  • Reduce Glare and eye-strain when working with computer screens
  • Reduce energy loss in winter
  • Increase thermal comfort and keep your staff and visitors happy
  • Ensure increased all year found comfort control

If you haven’t considered window film, then perhaps now is the time to allow us to provide you and perhaps your Financial Director, with an analysis of your potential savings?

We can provide you with projected figures with regards to the energy savings achievable from various film installations to your building, In addition to this, of course, are the added benefits of a more comfortable working environment and increased productivity. Contact us if you would like to know more.

Windows have an impact on energy consumption and Filmtek has a solution
Filmtek’s FT Series Solar Control Window Films provide a cost-effective alternative to costly window replacement, to ensure your building is more energy efficient and thermally comfortable, reducing heat gain during the summer months and heat loss in winter.

Applied to existing glazing, Filmtek’s solar control window film range for reduce heat, glare and energy use includes the popular, traditional silver reflective ‘mirror’ type films, through varying levels of tint and shade to the very latest almost clear heat reducing films that no only ensure heat reduction and energy savings, but also provide for the continuance of natural light transmission and a clear view.


Solar Control window films are designed to offer you immediate benefits:

    • Reduce solar overheating, heat gain and carbon emissions
    • Reduce cooling costs
    • Improve thermal comfort for employee continued concentration and productivity by reducing glare and making your building and work environment comfortable.
    • Provide privacy
    • Reduce UV radiation and fading
    • Provide electromagnetic shielding
    • Improve the visual appearance of a building
    • Cost-effective and non-disruptive
    • Exterior film options also available when an external application is required
    • Thermal comfort combined with energy efficiency

Filmtek believes that retrofit window film has a significant role to play in increasing energy efficiency and reducing global warming and as window film specialists with an understanding of glass, will provide you with assistance and guidance to ensure the correct product is recommended where the installation and end results meet with your requirements.

If you are responsible for your business premises and climate change/energy consumption your business is within the criteria of the ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme), you might be interested to know that Filmtek can also provide an Energy Efficiency and Financial Analysis Report to quantify the savings that could be generated with the installation of window films with additional support material as follows:

  • Fenestration energy analysis form
  • Thermal Comfort input form
  • Thermal Comfort Report
  • Energy Efficiency and Financial Analysis Reports

What the Health and Safety Executive says about Thermal Comfort and Health and Safety
The Health and Safety Executive states that thermal comfort is important and that by managing thermal comfort you are likely to improve morale and productivity as well as improve health and safety. People working in uncomfortably hot and cold environments are more likely to behave unsafely because their ability to make decisions and/or perform manual tasks deteriorates.

The HSE also states that the radiant heat effects of the sun on indoor environments can be addressed by the use of blinds or shutters on windows, however a far simpler and effective solution would be the installation of solar control window film, as blinds and shutters can also increase the heat gain within a building.


For increased protection and solar control, the benefits of solar control window film with its heat and glare reducing properties can also be combined to include the benefits of anti-shatter film protection for a combined solar safety/security solution.
