Benefits of Low-E Window Glass Film

Low-Emissivity (Low-E) window films are virtually invisible, thin sheets of clear material which offer a wide variety of benefits, including:

Improved energy efficiency and insulation

Untreated windows are responsible for up to one-third of the average home’s total heating and cooling losses and they are responsible for up to 40% of total heating and cooling losses in commercial buildings. Low-E window films significantly increase windows’ insulation value (treated single-pane windows will insulate at rates comparable to untreated double-pane windows and treated double-panepane windows will insulate at rates comparable to untreated triple-pane windows). In addition to enhancing interior comfort by retainingwarmair in the winter and cool air in the summer, low-E films will lower your year-round energy costs.

Neutral appearance

Awnings, shades, and bulky window coverings can alter the interior and exterior style and ambiance of your home or commercial building. The neutral appearance of virtually invisible low-E window films will not block your views and help your home or business maintain its existing appearance. Low-E window films also work well with historic buildings because they increase insulation while blending seamlessly with the existing architecture.

UV protection

Low-E film blocks up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture, floors, carpeting, upholstery, and artwork from potential fading or discoloration.


Application of low-E window films is easier and more affordable than replacing your windows, making them an efficient, cost-effective solution to reduce your home or commercial facility’s window-related energy losses.

Won’t scratch / no special cleaning

Low-E window films are virtually maintenance-free and won’t scratch off due to their interior application.
