Users of offices, hospitals and public buildings have high demands with respect to the level of comfort. Roof-lights skylights and glass roofs are still a weak link in the climate control of buildings.

The architectural value of these roof constructions is unique, but the heat and light penetration is often a problem. Specifically to solve these problems, Glasfolie Suncontrol has developed the special Skylight film for plastic and glass. By applying this Window film, these rooflights are adapted for the highest demands.

Roof-lights skylights

Why is Skylight film so special

Skylight Window film is a heat resistant polyester film coloured in the mass, with an adhesive layer that has been developed to be applied on plastics.
Once a Skylight film has been applied, it forms an “optical laminate”. Meaning: it becomes one with the surface. Skylight film is resistant against the natural forces of plastic: strong expansion (tension) and outgassing (the passage of water vapour).
Sun Control Skylight film works by reflection and absorption of the solar energy.


The extra favourable properties of Skylight film

Roof-lights fitted with Skylight film enhance the comfort of the inside climate, not only due to its sun and heat resistant properties, but also because annoying glare is significantly reduced. Often by 85%! Also the reduction of sun penetration can be as much as 41%. Moreover, Skylight film filters the ultraviolet radiation from the sunlight. This protects the interior better against discolouration. The Window film ensures more privacy. During the day, the film hinders peeping into offices and buildings.
When your company is equipped with air-conditioning, Skylight film saves on the energy consumption; the glass openings are demonstrably better insulated. Due to this, the costs of internal climate control reduce drastically. Due to a special top layer, the film is extra scratch resistant and more resistant against wear.


Application: Glasfolie Suncontrol has its own application service. Besides experience in the application, our employees also have the right equipment. They solely apply the film if the temperature of the surface is between 5 and 25 degrees Celsius. After approximately one month, the optimum adhesion is achieved and the film is entirely smooth.
Cleaning: the strong polyester film is very cleaning resistant. The best cleaning solution is clean water with a dash of household vinegar. The best tools: a clean sponge and chamois.
Watch out for sand and old hardened rubber squeegees! Also other sharp tools can cause damage. Aggressive cleaning chemicals are advised against. Detailed cleaning instructions are provided to you at the delivery of the film.
Dimensions: the width of the roll on which the film is supplied is 152 cm. This means that the maximum width when processing the film on a window approximately 151 cm is. But the film can also be applied if your windows are higher and wider.
 For larger windows, it is required that a seam be applied that is minimally visible in case of expert processing.

Technical details

Thickness: the Window film has a thickness of approx. 1.5 mil (37 microns).
Light-fastness: Skylight film does not discolour; the light-fastness is unmatched.
Combustibility: if the Window film is applied on glass, it is not easily combustible. The Window film reflects the heat radiation for quite some time. In case of a fire, the Window film will hold the broken glass sheet for some time.
Durability: the durability in case of inside applications is virtually unlimited.
Glasfolie Suncontrol gives 5 to 10 years manufacturer warranty on delamination and demetalisation of Window film applied on the inside by us.
