Windows are indispensable in our homes, stores and office buildings, and therefore the less pleasant aspects of the sun, such as harmful UV radiation, are often taken for granted. Without windows, a storefront has little effect. Without daylight, a pleasant working environment is almost impossible. On the other hand, the sun can do a lot of damage to your furniture, interiors and materials. Ultraviolet radiation in light, for example, is more than 90% responsible for discoloration of materials. UV radiation and discoloration can be easily countered with UV resistant window film that blocks 99% of UV radiation.

Especially to delay this discoloration of interiors, Glasfolie Suncontrol developed the special UV-resistant window film. When applied, you delay this discoloration of your precious interior and the associated high cost of replacement and accelerated depreciation. This virtually invisible glass film is made of clear transparent polyester layers with a reflective layer of metal particles between them, if necessary. This allows the window film to be applied virtually unnoticed.
