Boland Glazing approached Solartek Films Ltd. with a unique task: refreshing the solar control window film at EDS’s Stockley Park headquarters near Heathrow. The existing film, aged and weathered, was no longer effectively managing heat and glare, creating discomfort for the building’s 1200+ employees. To further complicate matters, EDS, prioritizing workplace safety, required all work to be completed on weekends to avoid disrupting regular operations.
Recognizing the unique constraints, Solartek devised a meticulous plan. First, they collaborated with Boland Glazing to install secure external access platforms, ensuring the safety of their technicians while enabling efficient film removal. This meticulous preparation minimized disruption to EDS’s weekend activities.
Next came the heart of the project: applying a new generation of external grade Silver Solar Film to all the building’s rooflights. This high-performance film offered several key advantages:

The improved thermal and visual comfort enhanced employee well-being and morale, fostering a more positive and productive work environment. Additionally, the reduced energy consumption and smaller carbon footprint demonstrated EDS’s commitment to environmental sustainability, solidifying its position as a responsible corporate citizen.
Solartek’s expertise and meticulous planning transformed the Stockley Park headquarters into a more comfortable, productive, and sustainable workspace. This case study is a testament to the power of innovative window film solutions in creating healthier, greener buildings that benefit both employees and the environment.
