The Challenge

Reject MAXIMUM Heat on naturally dark glass

Our customer Larry Mirick of SIERRA PACIFIC Engineering and Products (SPEP) contemplated installing an expensive glass system to his building to help block out some of the excess heat transferring through his darkened glass units. Unfortunately the replacement cost didn’t add up. So the glass company he was working with recommended he call Clearview Sun Control, Inc. to observe any other effective and affordable solutions available with window film. Larry didn’t just want to cut back the heat, he pretty much wanted the problem eradicated or at the least to entertain the idea of maximizing his ROI and help make his building a much more pleasant place to work in for his biggest asset, his employees.

The solution

Interior reflective film could have made a decent impact in total heat rejection. This would have been the simplest thing to do but wouldn’t have been the best option for one simple reason. Our goal was for ‘MAXIMUM’ heat rejection/efficiency. Understanding how glass and solar films react together as a unit to direct sun exposure is the key to understanding the logistical challenges of choosing the right product.

Exterior Sentinel™ Plus Silver 20 window film by Saint-Gobain was the obvious solution here because the film is reflecting over 80% of the sun’s energy at its source & never giving it a chance to enter the interior high-absorbing glass. The glass is now much cooler to the touch, the goal was ‘efficiency’ and that’s exactly what we provided.
