Solar Control & Energy Saving
Excess heat can make buildings hot and uncomfortable, potentially causing problems in almost any room with windows.
A quick summary in bullet points of our soloutions:
Solar heat gain through windows and overhead glazing creates heat discomfort and hotspots
Air-cooling systems can double energy and use costs
Continual increase in air-conditioned office space increaces Co2 emissions
Electricity is the largest producer of carbon emissions
The installation of blinds will stop natural light and increase heat build up
For most businesses the Climate Change Levy introduced in 2001 could be adding up to 10% onto energy bills
Financial and legislative penalties for failing to conform to energy and climate change legislation and responsibilities
An application of solar control film by FILMTEK is an efficient and straightforward way to tackle the problem.
Applied to exsisting glazing, InfraMax LX70 Energy Efficient Coating will immediately improve your energy rating.
Reduced heat gain, reduced energy and reduced cooling costs
Almost as clear as clear glass, LX70 retains visible light transmission and the view in and out
Immediate reduction in costs
The aesthetics of your building are retained
With a low solar absorbtion, LX70 is compatible for use with laminate glazing
And most importantly...
The installation of FILMTEK Solar Control Film will help to reduce Co2 emissions and your carbon footprint!
Air Conditioning Costs
Reduce the build up of heat within your premises
Our solar film can be applied to existing windows and is available in a range of grades, shades and colours. Each film varies in appearance and performance, with the most popular being High Reflective Silver – a high performance film that can reduce excess heat by up to 80%, whilst allowing natural light to pass through your glazing. We offer working samples of each film type free of charge, allowing you to see first-hand how each product performs.
An application of solar film can have numerous other benefits including preventing glare and fading caused by harmful UV rays and reducing energy consumption by reducing the strain on air conditioning units. This can help you save money on energy bills.
Whatever the size of your building or the scale of your problem, we’ll be able to help. Our trained staff are on hand to talk through your requirements and to suggest the best possible solution for your particular situation.

Advances in energy saving window film technology mean it can now be an efficient and affordable choice for increasing the energy efficiency of your building.
You save on costs and leave behind a lighter carbon footprint for a better, greener global enviroment!
Solar protection window film works by reflecting away unwanted solar energy before it enters your premises, ensuring a more moderate, comfortable temperature. In turn, this means less reliance on air conditioning units and cooling systems, resulting in reduced energy usage and costs.
FILMTEK offers a range of films that can assist with energy efficiency, with the most effective rejecting up to 85% of solar energy.
The window film is applied directly to glass, forming a barrier to solar energy that is proven to be more effective than traditional methods such as blinds, and more cost effective than expensive replacement glass.
Our range of energy saving window film is available in a variety of finishes and grades, including an external grade film for when an internal installation is not possible.
Installation is carried out by fully trained and vastly experienced teams of professional fitters who are able to carry out installations of any size in any situation, including large panels and expanses of glass, and specialist installations such as roof glass and windows at height.
