ABOUT ARCHITECTURAL FILMS

TSER

TSER - the combined reading index of visible light transmission, infrared rejection, ultraviolet ray rejection. The higher the TSER, the better the heat rejection. TSER is the most accurate way to determine the quality of the solar film.

With one of the highest TSER (total solar energy rejection) percentage, SolarGard provides true value per performance delivered. TSER is an industry-recognized performance index and a comprehensive solar film standard. It encompasses heat values rejected, reflected and absorbed by both glass and film. Making it the golden standard that correctly measures the protective capabilities of solar (protective) films.

The specifications of Solar Gard window films  are measured at the optimal wavelength of 2500nm (full wavelength). That is why our customers feel satisfied that their home, office and commercial place stays cool and comfortable. 

 

COOLING COSTS

Ambient temperatures are very hard to maintain and this could be a substantial expense for most households. As the internal temperature fluctuates, the ability to enhance the insulation of the house and its interior space is crucial for the longevity of fittings as well as the liveability for the occupants. Though air conditioning is commonplace with regard to ambient temperature control, one cannot disregard the strain that such a system would have to deal with and the costs involved to keep interiors cool, especially at the hottest times of the day. Through careful consideration and application of suitable window films, households and businesses could see cost savings as high as 30% over similar periods annually. 

 

FADING

Harsh sunlight, especially the Ultraviolet light within, is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the fading of property. Items placed near constant/harsh sunlight often lose their lustre, colour or vibrance overtime. The use of quality films from SolarGard with sun protection equivalence of up to SPF 285, is able to block out up to 99% of harmful UV rays which may potentially harm furnishing finishes, causing premature degradation and easier wear and tear. The employment of SolarGard solar films will also ensure that this protection persists and not fade as the film's patented technology keeps the protection strong for years to come even under constant, everyday harshness under the elements. 

 

 

GLARE

Glass and metal are a common sight in most urbanscapes. Coupled with harsh sunlight in the day and light pollution at night creates a harsh and disturbing environment. Good window films bring down the brightness and harshness of incoming light, soothing it to a softer glow which will be less harmful on the eyes and while providing great visual clarity. The softer lit space would also mean less harshness for television watching or pc usage, as there would be fewer intrusions to the ambient environment, making for a more conducive, cozy feeling in the modern household. 

 

PRIVACY

High rise built-up urban environments mean neighbours in close proximity. As the density of living spaces gets higher, so would the need for privacy between units. They are quite a few solutions to this problem, but the most cost effective would be the application of window films. Giving complete coverage, window films help shade and shield from prying eyes to keep you and your family safe. The use of privacy window films  also means fewer maintenance woes and no intrusion on valuable interior space which may be set aside for other purposes.

 

CUSTOM LOOK

The glazing is the big part of the home’s façade and it forms part of the building's style and personality. Through the careful choice and skillful application of window films, the look of the house can be enhanced to allow it to stand out from the neighbours and allow features like windows to better blend into the overall design. The parameters for customisation is only limited by the plethora of films available to match one's whims and fancy, for that unique twist on the ubiquity of the urban house.

 

ENVIRONMENT

Shielding your home from the harms of the sun protects not just your family but also the environment. With that in mind, Solar Gard took into consideration the entire process of film production to account for its impact on the environment. This allows consumers to make a conscious environmental choice as it not only serves to keep the home cool but more so, the planet.  In so doing, the film produced brings no greater load to the environment while allowing for further reduction of emissions and household cooling bills by up to 30% which represents huge comfort to both the family and the expenses.
