There are many homeowner associations that prohibit the use of reflective window films.
This is more an aesthetics issue than a performance attribute.
The higher reflective films alter the prestige home’s “curb appeal.”
These covenants point our customer toward the nano-ceramic German Technology films manufactured by Huper Optik.
Note the natural light of this ceramic 50% window film
These new technology films do a superior job in reducing the infrared heat while reducing the visible light.
They are less reflective than glass; so the day and night time views are never compromised. There are less publicized benefits of non-metallic window film based upon their non conducting properties that tend to interfere with FIOS or wireless EM signals.
The bottom line is that your home’s aesthetics are preserved and the performance factors that reduce the heat, glare, UV and fade are both superior and quantifiable.
Our client took our prestige challenge and immediately ruled out the 3M blue hazy looking film and chose Advanced Film Solutions!
Window Films have become the “window film of choice”for Interior Designers who appreciate protecting high value furnishings from fade.
These films are constructed for optical clarity and zero distortion or haze. They are safe for dual pane Windows and IG Units and backed with a lifetime warranty direct from Eastman Chemical; the world’s largest window film manufacturer.
Vista Film and Huper Optik Ceramic Film comes in wider 6 foot widths!
And our Vista Window Films are also available in a thicker safety and security version (8 ML) These Vista safety and security films perform the very same solar benefits of the thinner versions but hold the glass in place against impact force.
