Frequently Asked Questions
What is Window Film?
A micro-thin polyester material, which gives you plenty of sunlight with less of the sun's heat and UV rays. Applied to the interior of your windows, the film is an invisible "solar shield" that can reject over 80% of the sun's heat. In summer, your home is cooler and more comfortable, so you save on energy bills. In winter, films retain heat for year-round comfort.
