The addition of a conservatory to a residential or commercial property, should add a pleasant ambiance, with a view to enhancing our lifestyle.
But sometimes living with a conservatory can actually be a problem: As any conservatory owner can tell you, there are a number of drawbacks. All too often, the conservatory becomes too hot in the summer months, or glare from the sun renders the room unusable, or very uncomfortable. Ultraviolet rays can also fade fabrics and furniture.
Inherent within the design of conservatories, are large spans of glazing, which, while allowing users to enjoy the benefits of sunshine, can also increase the unwanted (and sometimes unpleasant) effects of excessive heat and glare. Ideally conservatories should be an additional living space, that can be used in comfort all year round. That way, they are to be of real value and provide a good return on the initial investment.
Material blinds are the traditional approach taken to deal with these problems, but they can be expensive. They require periodic cleaning and maintenance, and can substantially affect the visible light levels within the conservatory. For many people this goes against everything a conservatory stands for – excellent visibility to view the garden and surroundings.
There is an alternative. Llumar performance films are technically-advanced solar control films, that present a cost-effective, unobtrusive, and permanent solution. They require no maintenance, other than normal window cleaning. Above all, they effectively and efficiently address the issues of solar gain, glare, and UV protection, whilst allowing visible light to pass through.
Llumar solar control performance films can reject as much as 79% of unwanted solar energy, (which can mean a heat gain reduction of 71%), reduce solar glare by 83%, and block out 99% of harmful UV rays. The use of Llumar performance film in a conservatory can typically reduce internal temperatures by as much as 6-8°C.
Llumar film comes in a range of finishes. Tinted film will subtly transform the appearance of the conservatory, while reflective films will give a more dramatic look. Or minimise the impact with neutral film, which will blend into carefully planned designs and colour schemes. Llumar performance window film is the right choice for your conservatory.
