Window Film FAQ's
» What is Window Film?
Window film is 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 contain heat for year round comfort.
» Will it stop my furnishings from fading?
Actually nothing will completely stop colors from fading. However, the new Panorama window films stop over 98% of the damaging Ultraviolet rays. This will slow down the fading process and help prolong the life of your furniture, hardwood floors, drapes, and other sensitive home furnishings.
