Why choose solar control glass?
There are many benefits to Solar control glass, including the reduction of solar heat gain into your home or office. It can help even out the temperature of the building too, especially if the building has a south or west facing windows. You are able to reduce glares from the sunlight for a more comfortable working environment for staff. Solar control glass can also help reduce fading in furniture and fabrics by reducing the glare from the sun.
Addressing the issues associated with solar heat gain, glaring and winter heat loss can improve the building’s energy efficiency and lower the buildings carbon footprint.
What are the common issues that solar control window film and tinted window film help to solve?
Poor temperature Regulations: Your windows can often be at fault for a lack of temperature control in your building. In the Summer months, your windows can allow a lot of infrared light to enter your building which can make certain rooms unbearably hot and uncomfortable. These windows then will act as poor insulation in the Winter months too, this will lead to increased heating bills and will also waste a lot of energy throughout the whole year.
Damage to household items: UV rays can be held responsible for the long term fading and damage to household items. Paintings, photographs and many different types of furniture are all vulnerable to UV rays. Solar control glass can help protect some of your valuable possessions from the harsh rays by restricting the number of rays able to enter the room or workspace.
Overexposure symptoms: The bright sun can cause a number of health issues to you as a person if not careful. These health issues can range from a mild headache because of the sun glaring into people’s eyes to skin problems due to excess UV ray exposure. Edinburgh Glass & Glazing can provide glass which can block up to 99.5% of UV rays. You can choose your grade of glass to get the ideal amount of light into your home or office.
UV & Sun Glare Protection
UV is one of the main factors that contribute to the fading of furniture, upholstery and also can damage the skin. Solar control glass reduces these risks by blocking out harmful rays from an office or home, protecting yourself, staff, family and valuables.
Glares from the sun can also cause numerous problems all year round from the low sun during the Winter months to the long sunny Summer days. Solar glares can make it very difficult to focus on computer screens, read and even have face to face conversations.
