Challenge

A south-facing home with an expansive rear façade comprising triple-glazed and laminated windows was experiencing significant issues with glare. The homeowners were seeking a solution that would reduce the glare without affecting the natural light quality or the architectural aesthetic of the property. Additionally, the requirement for privacy on the Juliet balcony while maintaining the property's modern look was a key aspect of this project.

Solution

The External Sputtered Neutral 25 window film was selected for its suitability for exterior application on the specialized triple-glazed and laminated windows. The film provided the following benefits:

Glare Reduction: Designed to cut down on excessive brightness, the film significantly reduced glare, making the interior space more comfortable.

Compatibility with Triple Glazing: The external application was ideal for the triple-glazed windows, ensuring the film's performance and longevity.

Aesthetic Appeal: The neutral tone of the film complemented the property’s exterior without altering its contemporary design.

Privacy for Juliet Balcony: A frosted film was applied to the Juliet balcony to ensure privacy while also allowing light to filter through.

The installation was carefully planned and executed to cover the entire rear of the house and the Juliet balcony, ensuring uniformity and precision in application.

Results


Enhanced Comfort: The reduction in glare significantly improved the living experience, particularly in areas that received direct sunlight.

Maintained Aesthetics: The film's subtle appearance preserved the home's modern façade and views.

Increased Privacy: The frosted Juliet balcony film provided the necessary privacy without compromising the overall design language of the home.

UV Protection: The film also offered protection against harmful UV rays, contributing to the preservation of the interior furnishings.

All external applications also require an edge sealant to reinforce the longevity of the film and make it weather resistant.

Testimonial

The client was astounded by the significant reduction in heat and glare, all while maintaining excellent internal clarity.
