Prestige Series window films use non metallized, multi-layer optical film and nano technology to reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light And it rejects up to 60% of the heat coming through your windows. These films also reject up to 99.9% of damaging UV rays to reduce fading of your furnishings. This film series keeps you cool, comfortable and protected.
Ceramic Film Series
The Ceramic Series rejects up to 80% of the sun’s infrared light, rejects up to 59% of heat coming through your windows and blocks 99% of UV rays,.
Night Vision Film Series
The night vision series helps block the sun’s damaging UV rays, reduce glare and rejects up to 71% of the sun’s heat. Night Vision films also allow 15% to 35% of the natural light into your rooms by day. Thanks to a low interior reflectivity, you can still enjoy the view out by night while enjoying enhanced privacy with your windows. Great heat rejection also helps provide energy savings and improved comfort.
Low-E Film Series
A window can lose as much as 20 more times the heat in the winter than the same area in an adjacent wall? The Low-E series helps provide increased insulation performance by retaining heat during the winter and cool air during the summer. This provides comfort and energy savings year round. With a potential payback of three years, building owners can recoup their initial investment in just three years and also realize the energy savings for many years to come.
