Solar Heat & Glare


Glasstint Anti-Glare Film fitted to high level glazing to hospital building

Local Health Authority Buildings often have large expansions of glass which can cause severe discomfort for patients, visitors and staff alike.

Consider the benefits of installing a Glasstint solar control film, they can deflect up to 80% of the sun’s heat and reduce glare without shutting out the view and daylight. Air conditioning costs can be reduced and staff performance and patient comfort increased. The film which keeps you cool in the summer can also help retain the warmth in winter.

As the cost of energy rises authorities are now seeking alternative, more cost effective solutions to energy driven forms of temperature control such as air conditioning or fans. Glasstint Solar control film is one such solution.

Legislation with the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and Energy Efficiency Schemes requires certain organisations to register and actively participate in reducing carbon emissions. Glasstint window films can assist in helping to reduce the overall carbon emission which an organisation may potentially produce.

Glare issues can cause discomfort for computer users on a regular basis, meaning that building occupants are forced to move or close blinds and become dependant on artificial lighting. Glasstint’s range of glare reduction films can help to eliminate these problems and allow you to take advantage of the day’s natural light and keep your costs down and staff morale up.
