Three New External Window Films from Solar Gard®

A new outside weatherable (OSW) window film is opening up numerous opportunities for building owners with low-e, laminated or wired glazing on their windows and other large glass facades. Windows with these types of glazing systems have typically been unsuitable for traditional internal window film installation due either to limited internal access or because of the physical properties of the glass itself. As a result, many building owners have been unable to reap the full benefits that window film delivers such as: blocking up to 99 percent of damaging UV radiation which causes skin cancer and fading to furniture; reducing glare and hot spots that decrease office productivity; and blocking solar gain which helps reduce the need for air conditioning systems.

Solar Gard's new film comes in three options, Solar Gard Sentinel Silver 20, Silver 35, and Sentinel 4 Mil Clear. Because they are installed on the outside of the glass, these films block heat from entering through the glass which reduces the risk of glass breakage, a rare but critical issue for buildings with large vertical or sloping glass facades.

Benefits of window film
Occupants of commercial properties outfitted with OSW window film are protected from damaging UV rays that cause skin cancer and fading to furniture, artwork, carpets and more. With window film, building occupants experience more comfortable work environments with less eye strain because solar glare has been reduced. With more stable temperatures, some business owners even claim productivity increases. Facility and operations managers installing OSW films are able to save energy, lower their air conditioning bills and reduce their carbon footprint.

  • Offer low visible light transmittance (VLT) to significantly reduce glare
  • Reject up to 78% of total solar energy
  • Carry 5-year vertical warranty and 2-year sloped warranty
  • Maintain the low-e functionality of the glass while simultaneously reducing the risk of glass breakage and seal failure
