It would probably not be overly bold a statement to suggest that heat control films are largely associated with the task of repelling excessive solar glare and heat gain at the height of the summer months, rather than necessarily reducing heat loss from a building during colder periods.
It is important, however, to acknowledge that such window films can be genuinely invaluable right through the year.
Furthermore, when you are a specifier or end user on the lookout for heat control films that do make sense during every season, you could hardly hope to make a finer choice than our internal low-mirror window films here at Stockfilms.
Balanced year-round performance from these renowned heat control films
Our present range of highly rated, internally-applied low-mirror window films encompasses such options as Bronze 20, Bronze 35, Neutral Grey 20, Neutral Grey 35 and Neutral Grey 50. While these films each slightly vary in terms of their advantages, they can be depended on to deliver formidable, balanced performance all year round.
After all, when you are seeking out heat control films that lend themselves to winter conditions as well as they do to warmer ones, you will probably wish to achieve a certain level of heat and glare rejection, while also not overly reducing how much heat and light are allowed to pass through the window.
Sure enough, in the case of the Neutral Grey 50 film, some 48% of visible light is allowed to be transmitted through the glass, while 39% of solar energy is transmitted and glare can be reduced by 45%. If, however, higher levels of solar energy rejection and glare reduction are desired, such alternatives exist in the same range as the Neutral Grey 50 product, which transmits just 14% of solar energy and 18% of visible light.
Bear in mind that amid the ongoing unpredictability of the seasons, effective heat and glare reduction are both likely to be appreciated at times by users of the buildings where these heat control films are installed. Low-lying winter sun, for instance, can be a highly unwelcome source of glare that could compromise the comfort and productivity of a building’s occupants.

One benefit of our low-mirror window films that we haven’t touched on yet in this piece is, of course, the characteristic that defines them; their much more muted and neutral appearance compared to the reflective solar films you might have otherwise considered.
The aesthetic advantages that such heat control films bring to a relatively architecturally sensitive setting is a further all-year-round reason to make them your choice.
As for if you would like to discuss that choice in more detail, including the specific low-mirror window film that may best suit the application you have in mind, it couldn’t be more straightforward to give the Stockfilms team a call today, on 020 8441 0449.
