From a historical standpoint, virtually every objection to window film has been related to aesthetics. Complaints such as “it’s too dark”, “it’s too shiny”, or “it doesn’t look natural” were commonplace. Those objections became part of the past with the introduction of Hilite 70® clear solar protection.
Hilite 70® is a spectrally selective window film. “Spectrally selective” essentially means that the film is able to discriminate against certain wavelengths within the light spectrum. In this case, Hilite 70® stops 99% of the UV light, and 95% of the longer wavelength infrared, while allowing virtually all of the visible portion of the light spectrum through. This results in a “clear” film that still rejects 55% of the total solar energy entering through your windows.
Just as importantly, Hilite will not compromise your view – day or night. Conventional films can be very dark, or present a reflective surface on the inside of your windows at night; making it difficult or even impossible to see out. Hilite has the same reflectance value as clear, untreated glass. During the day, your rooms will be filled with natural light. “Hot spots” will be eliminated, comfort will be increased, and at the same time, your prized possessions will be well protected against sun damage and fading.
The exterior appearance of your windows remains unchanged as well. There is no cold, “mirrored”; or heavy, “dark” appearance that is so commonly associated with window films.
