How Solar Control Window Film Works

In order to understand how solar control window film works, it’s important to know about the different types of light that make up the electromagnetic spectrum. Certain frequencies of light, such as infrared rays, are responsible for creating heat, while other frequencies, referred to as visible light, make up the type of light that we see which produces brightness.

Solar control window film works by controlling which frequencies of light are able to pass through glass. The film blocks infrared heat while allowing visible light to pass through. Since the heat is no longer able to enter your building, your hvac system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep it cool and uses less energy. Ultimately, it produces a bright, energy efficient space.
