Unfortunately, solar UV rays and excessive sunlight in conservatories can cause fabric on furnishings, such as sofas, footstalls, poofy's, rugs, carpets, curtains, eiderdowns and arm chairs, to severely fade and blinds and curtains to discolour, ruining the decor of the conservatory, leaving home-owners that have tendencies for heat-stroke, photoaging or sunburn to suffer, including those who react adversely to the over-exposure of sunlight.

 

Although the Sun provides natural warmth and vital vitamin D, until you own a house with a conservatory that gets direct sunlight, you don’t realise just how much damage can be caused by excessive heat and daily solar glare.

 

With the installation of Prism Protection solar-reduction film, we can reduce harmful UV rays by 99%, protect fabrics and furniture from being damaged, saving money on replacements. Heating bills can also be reduced.

During the warmer, more humid summer months, conservatories can heat up like ovens, creating an uncomfortable environment for those relaxing in them, due to excessive heat and sunlight “glare” (or  “dazzle”). Unfortunately, wearing sunglasses are often needed to protect their eyes from the brightness or headaches can occur. 

 

Did you know that installing our anti-glare film can reduce up to 85% of the sunlight glare, whilst retaining the view of the surroundings through the glass.

Conservatories suffer from heat-gain in the early Spring months and excessive heat during the Summer, making them uncomfortable and potentially unsafe to be used by those affected by dehydration and those who suffer from sun-burn, photoaging or heatstroke.

 

Heat-reduction conservatory window film allows families, children and guests to enjoy the comfort and scenery their conservatory affords, especially when opening doors and windows, for fresh air, brings more heat in, when it gets too hot. During the last few years, this has become a real problem in the UK, with record levels of heat being recorded.

Are your local businesses worried about their offices being broken into by intruders?

 

Window film provides extra layers of security and safety for the commercial and retail industry, acting as an anti-shatter, protective deterrent against break-ins, corporate theft, burglary and forced entry.

School Window Film Budgeting? Invest Wisely!

Prism has worked with educational buyers for many years and has gained valuable insights into the pitfalls and challenges that bursars, administrators and Head teachers face, when trying to navigate the often-confusing jargon and terminology that can be found within the window film installation industry.

 
There’s no hard and fast rule for how a schools’ buying-cycle operates: some schools obtain 2x quotes, while others obtain a handful – it really depends on the tendering process, the schools requirements’, the size of their buying department and the priorities of the bursar.

 
Initially, Bursars obtain quotations first; then they meet with the school governor and PTA committee (parent and teacher association) who pool together resources to facilitate parental participation in a school – so parents have a very big say in which company the educational establishment purchases window film from.
