Solar Art installed UV window film to a home in Los Angeles, California! The back of this home is predominantly glass doors and glass walls so the family can enjoy views into the backyard. There is a basketball court in the backyard where the kids are constantly playing. The homeowners like the fact that they can easily watch them from inside the house. While the glass doors and windows provide excellent views into the backyard, they also let in a ton of sun and the customer is really concerned with sun fading. The homeowner is also having heat and glare issues, but the main concern is sun fading. The back of the house is in the sun pretty much the entire day, which means sun and light are always radiating into the home. While cleaning the homeowner noticed their hardwood floor, couch and kitchen chairs are starting to fade from the sun. This really concerned the customer because they spent a lot of money on the furniture and floors and they didn’t want them to get ruined from sun fading. With that being said, they are only concerned with the windows and doors in the back of the house. The glass in the front of the home isn’t exposed to the sun as much and the furniture and floors are protected. The customer is looking for a solution to sun fading that they can only install to the back of the home without changing the look of the home or losing views into the backyard. They have a neighbor who installed window film for the same reasons, so the customer reached out to Solar Art for a free quote!
If sun fading is your main concern, then window film is a great solution. All window film, regardless of what you decide to install, is going to block 99% of UVA and UVB rays. These UVA and UVB rays are the leading cause of sun fading. With that being said, the customer has full range to choose whatever window film they want because they are going to get that UV protection no matter what. Our sales representative showed the customer different samples of window film that isn’t going to change the look of the home. After seeing all of the different samples, the customer decided they liked 3M Prestige 60 the best. 3M Prestige 60 is a UV window film that blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays. By rejecting these rays, UV window film extends the life of furniture and the floor. It also blocks 53% of heat and 32% of glare. So not only is their furniture and wood floors being protected from sun fading, the home is going to be cooler and have less glare. Since this UV window film has low reflection, the customer is able to only install it to the back windows of the home without worrying that the aesthetics of the home will be off. Later on down the road if the customer decides they no longer want the UV window film or they want to sell the house without it, the window film can easily be removed with no damage to the glass. In addition to UV window film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, window security film, anti graffiti film and building wraps.
