The Obel Tower in Ireland, which is the country’s tallest building, underwent a £2 million refurbishment that included the installation of solar control window film to make the residents’ lives more comfortable. Solartek Films, a Hertfordshire-based company, provided and installed the window film. The installation process started with the first three floors and was completed by autumn.

Solartek Films has a proven track record of delivering high-quality services and has worked on other iconic buildings across the UK, including the BBC, Harrods, and Lords. Ben Hickling, a representative of Solartek, explained that the new window films would reflect up to 80% of heat in summer months, reflect 39% radiant heat back during winter, cut down glare, and reduce internal fading. The film also provided excellent daytime privacy, making it the perfect solution for residential properties and offices.

Solar control window film is a cost-effective way of reducing the effects of the sun. The installation process is quick and unobtrusive, with minimal disruption, making it a popular choice for many properties. This is particularly important for commercial properties that cannot afford downtime.

Different types of solar control window film are available to cater to specific needs. Heat reduction film is ideal for preventing heat build-up, while glare reduction film is perfect for minimising glare and reflections in TV rooms, lounges, and offices. With the right film installed, the effects of the sun can be significantly reduced, providing a comfortable and conducive environment for work or relaxation.

In conclusion, the installation of solar control window film at the Obel Tower was a significant step towards enhancing the building’s value and the residents’ living conditions. Solartek Films delivered high-quality services, and the project was completed with minimal disruption. If you’re looking to reduce the effects of the sun in your property, solar control window film is an excellent solution.
