Our Most Cost-Effective Solar Film
Intermediate window films are generally our least expensive products and ironically among the most effective. It’s common that a dyed substance is used to add color and to reduce the reflection of the product.
A highly reflective intermediate film will usually have the quickest return on investment (R.O.I.) because of the low cost and high heat rejection. These films are very popular for commercial applications for this reason. Window film manufactures have also improved the stability of their dyed materials to help prolong the product’s lifespan. Clearview only recommends solar film products that have been rated by the NFRC (a non-profit organization that administers the only uniform, independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors, skylights, and attachment products).
These products are generally inexpensive to produce and have an abundance of shades and colors. Popular for extreme glare reduction, as seen in limousines, as well as multiple decorative purposes, these films can help fulfill many aesthetic needs. Dyed technology is not as efficient in solar heat rejection compared to our other offerings, but they do have their place.
Traditional films are dominantly used in commercial buildings and large skyscrapers. This makes sense because these films are low in cost and high in performance for heat rejection. Because of their mirrored appearance, reflective tinting can dramatically improve the appearance of a building by hiding mini blinds and office furniture. Since darker versions of reflective tintitng can function just as well or better than their more costly counterparts, they are a great choice for those on a budget and/or needing increased protection from the sun.
