Solar Control and Insulation Film

Film Applied to Glass

Reduce Glare, Retain Heat

Solar control film or tint/reflective film is becoming increasingly popular in houses as well as cars, the film can reduce glare and also acts as an insulator to retain heat providing a more controlled and balanced temperature, particularly good in conservatories or large south facing aspects where temperatures can rise rapidly and the large expanse of glass means temperatures also fall rapidly at night.

As a straightforward aftermarket fit you will have the choice of varying degrees of solar control, tints that reduce as much as 75% of solar heat gain and can reduce room temperatures by as much as 10 degrees can be sourced whilst still providing good light levels.

The films will also reduce UV rays which in turn reduces fading and provide for a safer and more comfortable working or home environment.


  • Reduces solar heat gain
  • Reduces UV rays and thus fading of fabrics.
  • Increased security, tinted windows help deter thieves.
  • Safer, film holds windows together in cases of breakage.
  • Reduced energy costs.
  • Conservatories can be used all year round.
