Skylights/skylight

The sky is the limit… skylight glass film for every skylight

Users of offices, hospitals and public buildings place high demands on comfort levels. Still the skylight, skylight and skylight covers are a weak link in building climate control.

The architectural value of these roof structures is unique, but heat and light penetration is often a problem. Especially to solve these problems, Glasfolie Suncontrol developed the special Skylight film for plastic and glass. The application of this glass film adapts these skylights for the highest demands.

Why is Skylight movie so special

Skylight Glass Film is a mass-colored, heat-resistant polyester film with an adhesive coating designed to be applied to plastics.
Once Skylight film is applied, it forms an “optical laminate.” That is, it has become one with the substrate. Skylight film resists the natural forces of plastic: strong expansion (tension) and outgassing (the passage of water vapor). Skylight film works solar protection by reflecting and absorbing solar energy.

The additional beneficial properties of Skylight film

Skylights equipped with Skylight film increase the comfort of the indoor environment, not only because of its solar and heat-reflective properties but also annoying glare is significantly reduced. Often up to as much as 85%! The reduction in sunlight penetration can also be as high as 41%. Skylight film also filters ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. This better protects the interior from discoloration. The glass film provides increased privacy. During the day, the film obstructs views into offices and buildings.

When your business is air-conditioned, Skylight film saves on energy consumption; the glass openings are arguably better insulated, dramatically reducing the cost of internal climate control. A special top coat makes the film extra scratch-resistant and more resistant to abrasion.

No building is alike

Because every building has its own issues, Glasfolie Suncontrol developed a series of Skylight films with several safety and solar control properties.

Applications

Skylight film can be used on single, double or multi-walled plastic or glass panels of skylights or other light entry structures in all buildings where high solar shading and possibly reduced light entry is desired. The glass film is basically designed to be applied on the inside.

Application: Glass film Suncontrol has its own application service. In addition to experience in application, our staff has the right equipment. They apply the film only when the temperature of the substrate is between 5 and 25 degrees Celsius. After about a month, optimal adhesion is achieved and the film is completely tightened.

Cleaning:z The strong polyester film resists cleaning well. The best cleaning agent is clean water with a splash of household vinegar. The best tools: a clean sponge and chamois.

Beware of sand grains and old hardened rubber tractors! Other sharp tools can also cause damage. Sharp cleaning chemicals are discouraged. Detailed cleaning instructions will be provided to you upon delivery of the film.

Dimensions: The width of the roll on which the film is delivered is 152 cm. This means that the maximum width when processing the film a window is about 151 cm. However, the film can also be applied if your windows are taller and wider. For larger windows, it is necessary to apply a seam which is minimally visible with professional processing.

The benefits of Lightstart/skylight

  • Thickness

    The glass film has a thickness of about 1.5 mil (37 microns).

  • Lightfastness

    Skylight film does not discolor; its lightfastness is unsurpassed.

  • Flammability

    When the glass film is applied to glass, it is very difficult to ignite. The glass film reflects heat radiation for quite some time. In the event of a fire, the glass film retains the cracked glass for some time. Durability: Durability in indoor applications is virtually unlimited.

  • Warranty

    Glass film Suncontrol provides a 5 to 10 year manufacturer’s warranty on delaminating and demetalization of interior glass film we apply.
