What Is Glasshield<sup>®</sup>?    The Ultimate UV Protection For Window Glass How Does Glasshield <sup>®</sup> Work? - Energy Control Film Construction
 

Glasshield® energy control (solar) film is constructed using multiple layers of polyester laminated together. The cross section in the diagram to the right shows the four layers. Closest to the glass is the UV Blocking Layer, then Polyester Film, a Metal Alloy coating and a Scratch Resistant Coating which is the surface you can touch on the interior pane of your windows.

Visible light passes through all layers while up to 80% of solar heat is rejected along with over 99% of UV rays reducing glare by over 85%. At the same time the insulating effect of Glasshield® bounces room heat back into the room. The combined effect provides a more comfortable home, shop, office or public building. If all glass surface are treated you can achieve energy savings of up to 35% in cooling and mixed climates such as those found across much of New Zealand.
