Unbearable heat and glare was their problem.
Our client required maximum heat rejection without altering their perfect view of the bay.
Advanced Film Solutions competed against several window film companies who offered a variety of solutions.
The client selected Huper Optik because of the heat and glare rejection combined with the non-reflective appearance of the ceramic films.
Huper Optik blocked more glare and heat than the 3M Prestige 40 being promoted by 3M Home Depot. Our price was better and the clarity of our film exceeded the 3M appearance.
The fact that Huper Optik is dye free was another winning advantage over Prestige. This ensures that the clarity and appearance of the film will be maintained for years to come.
The Home Depot/ 3M reseller indicated that their film blocked 97% of the heat.
Obviously this is an inaccurate claim. Both Huper Optik and 3M block visible light which represents 50% of the total solar energy.
Both Huper Optik and Prestige block IR heat across the invisible near and far infrared wavelengths. It’s the combination of these heat filtering aspects that are an accurate description of a window film’s efficacy.
The specific film ratings can be found at the NFRC Applied Films website.
Factually Huper Optik exceeded the 3M offering as supported by independent objective test results!
