Denver sits at an altitude at about 5,280 feet above sea level, making the sunlight stronger and more intense in our city. While sun exposure has its benefits, it can also cause issues like glare, fading, and high energy costs. Installing sun blocking window film for your Denver building can help you avoid these issues and keep your business running smoothly.

Window Film for Controlling the Sun’s Heat

Heat is a common problem for commercial buildings in Denver. The high altitude combined with nearly-year-round sunlight causes buildings to heat up quickly, especially during the summer.

Property owners basically have two options for controlling heat. They can cover up their windows with blinds or roller shades or they can install window film. Denver businesses that wish to preserve natural light and the views provided by their windows will do much better with window tint than window coverings.

With window tinting, you can control heat without blocking light. This is ideal in places like hospitals, offices, and retail stores where natural light is desirable.

Sun Blocking Window Film Benefits

Window tinting isn’t just a great way to control heat. It’s also a way to control the type and intensity of light coming into your interior. Using spectrally selective technology, window film filters out both infrared heat and UV rays, providing benefits like:

Fade Prevention

Denver’s high altitude makes UV damage an even greater risk. Window tints prevent fading caused by UV exposure, protecting hardwood, paint, and upholstery.

Glare Reduction

It also softens and diffuses incoming light, which helps considerably to control glare. This way, occupants can engage with electronics without interruption. Customers can watch TV or look at their cell phone. And your staff can easily do their work on their computers.

Energy Savings

Lastly, it can make a major difference in terms of utility costs. Window tinting saves as much as 30% on energy costs each year. That translates to a full ROI of 5 years or less.
