5 Benefits of Commercial Window Film

LLumar® architectural window films enhance the appearance and comfort of buildings around the world. Our films can be found on educational institutions, museums, and corporate office buildings, and there’s a reason: benefits that consistently exceed expectations for performance. 

LLumar solar control window film helps save energy, money, and the planet. It boosts the performance of existing glass, relieving overworked HVAC systems and reducing energy consumption. Professional audits estimate that buildings retrofitted with LLumar film could realize annual energy savings from 5-15% with improved HVAC efficiency, reduced carbon emissions, and paybacks often within 3-5 years. See our energy savings calculator for a quick estimate of what you can expect for your building and preferred product. 

Many buildings have uncomfortable temperature fluctuations and eye-irritating glare from sunlight streaming through windows unchecked. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that nearly 75% of existing windows aren’t energy efficient, and one-third of a building’s cooling load is from solar heat gain through windows. It’s no mystery why there are complaints and move-outs due to these problems. LLumar solar control window film is an easy, cost-effective way to ensure consistent comfort throughout a building, without sacrificing natural views and sunlight.  

Building interiors and occupants are vulnerable to damage from UV rays, which can pass through most ordinary windows. Over time, UV ray exposure contributes to the fading of furniture, wall coverings, artwork, fabric, flooring and even merchandise displayed in store windows. UV rays are also linked to skin cancer. Sun control window film blocks more than 99% of harmful UV rays, helping to protect furnishings and skin while still allowing natural daylight inside. Window film is so effective at UV protection

Solar control and decorative window films are cost-effective solutions for creating privacy and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a building. LLumar offers a variety of solar films, from nearly invisible for historic properties to reflective, for a modern look that disguises interiors in daylight. Our decorative films are available in a wide range of textures and patterns; and are a versatile solution when you need to block unattractive views, hide clutter, create privacy

Complaints about heat, glare and fading are often an early sign that a building’s windows need attention. A recent study reports that 80% of office workers have trouble concentrating if the temperature is higher than normal, and nearly two-thirds say that performing typical tasks takes up to 25% longer. Window film is a budget-friendly way to address complaints and improve productivity. It significantly upgrades the performance of existing windows and installation is less disruptive, costing a fraction of full window replacement. Replacement can be cost-prohibitive for an entire building – or a needless expense when windows are structurally sound.

It’s important to make sure you’re choosing a film that’s suitable for the windows in your property. For professional advice and proper installation, reach out to a LLumar dealer near you. They’ll ensure sure you get the most out of your investment. See our film viewer tool, for previews of how solar and decorative films look when installed in a commercial interior.
