According to recent reports published by research companies in America, the window film application market is expected to grow by over 5% year on year for the coming decade and is expected to have a massive impact on the evolution of “green buildings” as consumers and the general public become more conscious and more aware of the impact our energy use has on the environment – couple this with the impact that both ultra violet and infrared radiation has on our lives and the need for solar control film has never been more important.

Improvements in the technology of window films has enabled huge advances in the reduction of solar heat gain in the buildings we live and work in today and has driven the popularity of solar control films in both our residential and commercial lives. The benefits of solar reduction film is matched by our need to reduce our carbon footprint, increase our energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, reduce our energy consumption alongside our awareness and consciousness of having the ability to do so.

Not surprising really as these films enable us to live a more sustainable lifestyle and contribute to a more comfortable environment indoors; be it our homes, offices, schools, hospitals and, frankly any building you can think of.
