What is Solar Window Film?

Solar window film, or sun control window film, is a 2-mm film applied to glass to help combat the negative side effects of the sun, whether that’s glare, solar heat, or fading caused by UV rays. Using nanotechnology, it allows natural light to enter your space without the use of traditional metals. With many different shades of tint to choose from, from nearly transparent and natural-looking to a darker film, you can achieve sun control with solar window film.
