Architectural window film enhances the appearance and comfort of buildings around the world. Window film applications can be found on educational institutions, museums and corporate office buildings and there’s a reason – benefits that consistently exceed expectations for performance.
Windows play a significant role in regulating heat and energy in your home. According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately one-third of an average home's utility bills are due to heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer, through windows that aren’t efficient. When chosen carefully and installed correctly, residential window film can help improve energy efficiency, lower energy use and save money.
Many buildings have uncomfortable temperature fluctuations and eye-irritating glare from sunlight streaming through windows unchecked. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that nearly 75% of existing windows aren’t energy efficient, and one-third of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows. It’s no mystery why there are complaints and move-outs due to these problems. Quality solar control window film is an easy, cost-effective way to ensure consistent comfort throughout a building, without sacrificing natural views and sunlight.
By blocking more than 99% of all UV rays, our residential solar film offers protection for the people and things you love. It carries The Skin Cancer Seal of Recommendation, awarded to products like sunscreen that protect against skin cancer. Our solar film also helps preserve the color of fabrics, carpets, flooring, antiques and artwork. Skin and home furnishings are frequently damaged by sunlight, and it’s surprising how fast UV rays can leave their mark. For these reasons, we only use solar control film that has long-lasting UV protection.
Style and Privacy
Solar control and decorative window film is a cost-effective solution for creating privacy and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a building. Jam Master offers a variety of solar film, from nearly invisible for historic properties to reflective, for a modern look that obscures interior viewing in daylight. Our decorative film is available in a wide range of textures and patterns; and is a versatile solution when you need to block unattractive views, hide clutter, create privacy.
Complaints about heat, glare and fading are often an early sign that a building’s windows need attention. A recent study reports that 80% of office workers have trouble concentrating if the temperature is higher than normal, and nearly two-thirds say that performing typical tasks takes up to 25% longer. Window film is a budget-friendly way to address complaints and improve productivity. It significantly upgrades the performance of existing windows and installation is less disruptive, costing a fraction of full window replacement. Replacement can be cost-prohibitive for an entire building – or a needless expense when windows are structurally sound.
