optimum light and temperature in premises.
area glass construction is an integral part of modern architecture.
Winter gardens, glass roofs, shop windows from floor to ceiling,
inner partitions, external glass facades
are the features of open space philosophy
in architecture. Together
with it’s positive features glass constructions have also
negative one – solar overheating and excessive glare that
causes discomfort to premises occupants. To
control suns heat and the glare the most cost-effective solution is
LLumar solar protective film.
proved that a temperature of comfort for a human being is 19-24 ◦C.
The rays of the sun penetrate an ordinary glass and heat the room.
In the direct sunlight appear so called “heat zones”
where temperature can mount to 40-50 ◦C. The power
of air-conditioning system (if any) often is not enough to equalize
temperature in all the rooms and as a result temperature rises in all
the complex of premises. Rise in temperature to 25-28 ◦C
can cause discomfort and productivity reduction by up to 30%-50%;
high temperature also lowers concentration of staff.
reflective films can reduce effect of sun as much as 80%, providing
optimum temperature in premises and reducing the load of air
conditioning systems. Installing the film on the existing glass, in
sunny day it is possible to reduce the temperature in premises as
much as 8-14◦ Ñ. Besides that, in the winter time
the film reduces heat loss through windows up to 15-30% .
and patches of sunlight
cause eye irritation and eye fatigue. Glaring rays reflected from
different surfaces creates many patches of sunlight,
whish increase level of contrast in premises and hamper to use
computers. Attempts to discern something on the display in sunny day
require additional eyestrain.
reflective and tinted films reduce glare by up to 50%-94%. The light
in premises becomes soft shaded and diffused, creating comfortable
working or relaxation conditions.
items of the interior are undergone to fading: pictures, furniture,
tapestries, flooring and walls. During two seasons colors may become
dim and loose their richness. Moreover, fading may be caused not only
by direct, but also by diffused and reflected sunlight. The
major cause of fading is destructing effect of UV, less important
causes are heat, visible light, humidity, and so on.
All LLumar films block out 99% of UV and minimally to
50% slow down the process of fading. Solar protective films
additionally filter heat and visible light, slowing down the process
of fading up to 80-90%. It protects an expensive interior and
artifacts from premature fading, damage and depreciation of items.
and outward design
Fasade renovation is expensive and long process. Technology changes so fast,
that 10-15 year old glass facades often don‘t satisfy modern
requirements of efficiency and appeal.
LLumar films can help you to improve existing glazing
parameters and change the design of the whole building. The expenses
will be only a small fraction of the cost of expensive glazing
replacement. Reflective films of different colors and tints enhance
architectural design of glass constructions. Keeping all the solar
protection and energy loss protection features, films of different
colors and hues: gold, bronze, greenish and pale blue can entirely
change the appeal of facade.
the help of metallized LLumar films in certain lighting conditions
“one-vision effect” can be created. In
daylight the outer glass from the outside looks like an opaque
mirror, but from inside you can observe all objects in the street
without any risk to reveal yourself. If the glass is inside the
premises to create “one-vision effect” lighting levels
must be adjusted.
into consideration the fact that production of one calorie of cold is
twice expensive then production of one calorie of heat, application
of film can pay for the film in 2 to 4 years by the reduction in
energy costs. The bigger is square of glazing, the more sensible is
effect of LLumar film application.
solar protection LLumar films have manufacturer’s warranty.
Films for installation inside the premises have 10 years warranty,
films for outside installation - 5 years warranty. Average life –
25 years. All films have scratch-resistant coating, don’t
require any additional care, are easy washable.
