A Leading Source Of Greenhouse Gas Emissions…
Commercial buildings are one of the most significant consumers of energy, and produce 39% of total CO2 emissions. That’s why the vast majority of facility managers are striving towards making their buildings more sustainable. Solar-X of Sarasota is here to help; with quality SolarGard® and Panorama® window films that can assist in achieving that goal. Here’s why:
Windows in an office building are responsible for most of the environmental woes within that structure. Unchecked heat intrusion makes the areas near the windows uninhabitable for just about anyone working near them. “Hot spots” and unstable temperature conditions make the interior environment miserable. One side of the building feels like a meat locker, the other side feels like an oven. Window film can stabilize those temperatures, and keep comfort demands more manageable by stopping up to 82% of the sun’s heat – balancing heat loads and reducing the peak energy usage that costs so much.
Harmful UV rays are another source of worry. Protecting office workers from the harmful effects of ultraviolet can reduce incidences of skin cancer, and harmful effects on the eyes. SolarGard® and Panorama® films stop 99% of the ultraviolet with an SPF factor of better than 285! And the reduction in glare makes it so much easier to see computer screens that productivity is actually increased! For those with a low tolerance for sunlight and UV, window film represents the perfect protection. In fact, many of our films are recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Physical safety of building occupants can be just as important to facility managers as their comfort. In today’s uncertain world you never know when or where someone may commit the next act of violence. Armorcoat™ Safety and Security Window Films retain glass fragments, and hold them in place after impact, explosion, or the high winds associated with violent storms; protecting against cutting and piercing injuries that are part of these events.
