How window film saves energy        
The movement or transfer of heat from a region of higher temperature to one of cooler temperature is called heat transfer. The transfer of heat always flows from hot to cold. No heat will transfer if there is no difference in temperature.
There are three types of heat transfer: Radiation, Conduction, and Convection. For window film, radiation is the most important method of heat transfer because it moves infrared waves. This is why we refer to solar energy as solar radiation.
Solar energy through a window is transferred or transmitted by infrared waves. Radiant energy is converted to heat when it strikes people or objects. If you block the transfer of this energy you keep it from turning into heat because it never strikes an object. Window film interrupts the transfer of this energy by reflecting the energy back.
Transmission is basically the percentage of Solar energy (UV + Visible Light + Near Infrared) that can passes through a window. Reflection is the ratio of solar energy reflected back to the source, expressed as a percentage. Absorption is the percentage of solar energy absorbed to that of the total solar energy.

Safety and Security Films
In the event of an accident, violent weather, or an explosion, flying glass shards can be dangerous even deadly. Safety films bond to glass and help hold broken fragments together, dramatically reducing the threat to life and limb.

In a hurricane, glass is put under severe stress which can propel broken fragments inside and outside the structure. When broken glass is held in tact by Optical Technology, the threat of damage and and injury is reduced and often eliminated. In violent weather, glass with safety film applied will minimize and in cases eliminate wind driven water, dramatically reducing insurance claims.

No one can argue that metal shutters are strong, but Optical Technology is a less expensive, a more attractive alternative and certainly more convenient than boarding up windows each time the wind begins to blow.

An intruder smashes a window or glass door. Within seconds he is in your home or business.

Optical Technology helps hold broken glass together thwarting the would-be burglar and providing extra time for authorities to respond. Safety film is a great security addition to help prevent smash and grab theft.
