Window film is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to tackle a variety of problem situations building occupants are usually faced with such as glare, UV exposure, fading, temperature control, graffiti attacks among other. Window film also improves the safety and security aspects of glass applied to both vehicles and houses, contributing at the same time to increased privacy and in some cases even improving the buildings’ interior and exterior looks.

This case study  shows the example of the Woodlands School in Plymouth, England, U.K., where coloured window film helped to reduce the excessive light coming into the building by over 70%, allowing the room temperatures to come down to better thermal comfort levels. The installation also helped improving the school’s appearance, adding a more colourful look to the classrooms which was very much welcomed by teachers, staff and especially the students.

Rainer Bechtold, Director of Sales & Marketing EMEA from Eastman Performance Films and responsible for the LLumar brand explained that “this is an excellent example of how window film can improve even modern glazing systems on various levels.”
