Specifications to Consider Before Purchasing a Window's Glass Film


Having a house with many windows or glass openings does provide many benefits to the house, one of which is natural lighting that makes the house brighter and reduces the use of lights during the day. But on the other hand, a house with lots of windows or glass openings can make your house feel hotter and make electricity bills for using AC higher. Those who initially wanted to reduce the cost of electricity in the use of lamps turned out to be constrained by the much more expensive AC cost.


So then how do we deal with this problem? Well, one of the main reasons why many homeowners are looking for an alternative to window film is the ability of window film to reduce the entry of heat energy into the house. However, don't you choose the wrong type of window film! You should first understand the terms in window film and then choose the type of window film that suits your needs.


Here are some general terms that are always used in the world of window film that you need to understand in order to choose the type of window film according to your needs.


Visible Light Transmission (VLT)

If you want to continue to use natural lighting in your home after installing the window film, then you can choose how much a light can penetrate the glass. The VLT number is usually in the form of a percentage, the higher the percentage, the greater the light that enters so that it will be brighter or more glare.


IR Rejection (IRR)

IR stands for infrared, is a solar radiation that causes hot temperatures on the surface of your home. Therefore, in general, window film will always be equipped with infrared rejection (IRR). IRR on glass film has the ability to reflect infrared rays from the sun. Usually IRR is also in the form of a percentage, the higher the percentage, the greater the rejection of infrared rays.


UV Rejection (UVR)

UV or short for ultraviolet is a harmful light. The impact of UV rays in damaging is very large, it can damage buildings, homes, furniture and even our skin. But don't worry, because in window film there is also a feature to reject ultraviolet light or also known as UVR. The value of UVR in window films is generally in the form of a percentage, the greater the percentage, the greater the ultraviolet rays will be rejected.


Total Solar Energy Rejected (TSER)

From the name itself it has the meaning of rejecting solar energy. As we know, solar energy is energy that comes from the sun and causes heat in the house. With the TSER on the window film, it is able to reject heat from sunlight. The TSER value in window film is also generally in the form of a percentage, the greater the percentage, the greater the ability of the glass film to reject solar energy, which means less heat enters.
