Window Film Causes of FadingWindow film has come a long way from the days of sticking an adhesive sheet to your home or car window to block the sun, and then watching the bubbles form and the edges curl. Today’s window films are high-tech and designed to last, providing exceptional heat control, UV protection and containment in the event of broken or shattered windows.

In a commercial setting, window film can be an effective and economical solution to excessive solar heating, especially if your building has lots of windows to cover. Heat buildup drives up energy costs and sunlight can take a serious toll on furnishings like carpets, furniture and artwork due to ultraviolet radiation causing fading and deterioration. Window film can improve energy efficiency by normalizing temperatures (reducing heat gain and loss), reducing glare and protecting against UV damage. Window film is effective when used alone, or for even greater energy efficiency and climate control, in combination with blinds, shades, shutters or drapes.

Budget Blinds®, through BB Commercial Solutions® (BBCS) offers window film for business in commercial and security grades, with clear, tinted and decorative styles to meet any needs for privacy, sun blockage, UV protection, and added security against theft and breakage. With a variety of applications, finishes and coatings for all types of glass, window film is installed directly onto your window’s surface, eliminating hot spots and reducing glare.
