Window tinting constitutes a very large family of products with an impressive array of energy saving & internal comfort benefits. Controlling the flow of energy or solar heat through windows, improving glass safety and security, adding to general architectural aesthetics, and providing decorative additions to glass are all areas of application with substantial market value.
Old-technology window tinting is characterized by accomplishing their solar heat gain rejection through absorbing the whole solar spectrum, preventing its direct entry into the home. The problem is that the film heats up excessively and, when applied to a single pane of glass or the inner pane of a double pane window, most of the heat is conducted, radiated or transferred through convection to the interior of the building, making the room hotter than it should be. This defeats the purpose of the film (to reduce solar heat gain) because much of the incident solar heat still enters the room … much less natural light is admitted as well.
As a LLumar® AAI centre, Lunar Products only installs new generation LLumar® films, which reduce heat-gain and "glare" much more effectively, by reflection and filtering, rather than only absorbing the heat and sunlight (like most "tints"). These films have a 10-year International manufacturer's warranty and will last over 20 years. We also focus on films that are more neutral in colour that do not change the appearance of the property and keep as much natural light as possible. Worldwide LLumar® films are the undisputable leaders in major projects involving solar control films and their quality is unrivalled.
We work closely with Architects, Engineers and Property management groups on their existing and new building designs and projects, to reduce heat gains and cooling loads thereby improving occupant comfort. We have reached the stage where our films are being specified by various architects and engineers during the design phase of projects and not just as a retrofit solution.
