Reduce your carbon footprint and boost profitability
Reducing your carbon footprint is a critical component of corporate sustainability programmes. Property and facility managers and owners, architects, utilities and government regulators are looking beyond simple payback and energy savings. Energy efficiency must now be managed effectively, 24/7 and every season of the year.
Energy usage affects facility management, budget planning, and capital improvements in profitability. This is the case for both commercial and residential requirement. Typically, windows account for 15% to 30% of the building’s total heating costs and often more than 30% of cooling costs.
The benefits of EnerLogic window film for commercial premises
EnerLogic window films provide faster payback than other energy efficiency measures, such as replacing windows or heating and cooling systems. They perform up to five times better than any other comparable window film on the market.
They transform the thermal performance of a single-glazed window into that of a double-glazed pane, at about one-quarter the cost of glass replacement.
This improvement in the window's insulating properties provides year-round energy savings in heating and cooling costs. The films permit an average annual insulation improvement of 92% compared to the same glass without EnerLogic.
An independent life cycle assessment has shown that applying EnerLogic window film to the current generic glazing system renders it carbon neutral after two months.
One of the most remarkable performance features of these window coverings is their ability to reduce heat transfer through the windows (by 43%).
EnerLogic window films are almost invisible, so clarity is maintained. At the same time, sunlight can enter, but harmful UV rays, discomforting solar heat, and glare are substantially reduced. They give low internal and external reflection, and are compatible with high-efficiency lighting such as compact fluorescent lights – there is no "oily" effect at night on the film's surface. They provide good protection against fading of carpets and furnishings.
EnerLogic's vastly superior thermal performance as a window insulating film has significant commercial benefits for the architectural and building industries, particularly as a “retrofit” product.
When professionally installed in commercial premises, EnerLogic products come with a 10-year warranty.

WHAT OUR COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS SAY
“We contacted Glasshield Wellington as we were experiencing problems with excessive heat and glare in some of our guests' apartments ... Brent visited us and showed us what window films could do to help. We are extremely happy with the results and even on very hot days the rooms stay cool and fresh. Brent was professional to deal with and certainly knows the right films for the job. I would have no hesitation in recommending Glasshield.”

Glasshield solar series for commercial windows
Solar control window film is ideal for application to commercial buildings, on clear laminated or coloured glass, and for shopfronts.
It's a polyester-based thin film material that offers crystal clarity. It reduces the amount of visible light being transmitted through the glass, thus minimising glare and increasing day-time privacy.
The material can also be easily metallised, and laminated to other layers of film. It can be dyed or metallised by vacuum coating or sputtering, to produce a variety of coloured and spectrally selective films. There is a range of colour choices, and the colours last.
Our solar film reduces energy costs all year round, rejects up to 78% of solar heat, and more than 98% of harmful UV light, providing excellent fade reduction. It adds safety to your workplace by strengthening the glass, and has the world's toughest scratch-resistant surface.
We can help you choose the best application for your commercial or public property. Our solar films, when professionally applied, come with a lifetime warranty.
Etched commercial window tinting for internal privacy
We provide an etched type of film which we install extensively on glass partitions in commercial offices to create either full or partial privacy.
This film has the look of real acid-etched glass, eliminating the need for sand-blasting. There is a choice of colours from a light off-white colour to a sparkled, sand-blasted appearance.
The vinyl film has less static to reduce dust, and strengthens glass for added safety.
