How Solar Control Films Work

  • Solar control films are coated with materials that reflect away the sun’s heat.
  • They reduce the brightness of the sun and virtually eliminate ultraviolet light.
  • There are two types of sun control products: exterior and interior.
  • Exterior products, which include films, are effective on sloped and other uniquely shaped glass and on atriums, as shown in this video.
  • Interior solar control films are more common. They are clear and don’t impact outside viewing. And they are very effective in their reduction of energy consumption and utility bills while increasing the comfort of building occupants.
