Solar control window film offers practical and low-cost upgrade to existing glazing systems
LLumar® Window Film, a brand of Eastman Chemical Company, will be hosting a must-see presentation on Day 2 of this year's Energy and Environment Expo, being held 17 – 19 June 2014 at ExCel, London. Presented by Aaron Reeves AIEMA MEnvSci, Specification Services Manager, Advanced materials - Performance Films, Eastman Chemical Company, the keynote will provide attendees with guidance on how energy control window film can help reduce energy consumption in non-domestic buildings without the need for costly glass replacement. Topics will include:
• The impact of windows/glazing on a building's energy consumption and the comfort of its occupants
• Key window film technologies, from invisible solar control, to ‘all season' energy savings
• All underscored by third-party verification of the benefits of window film technology alongside project examples
"The UK economy is steadily improving and there is an air of optimism across the nation's construction industry," says Reeves. "However, the London property price surge hasn't rippled out across the whole country and although new-build investment is on the rise, refurbishment margins remain tight. With the energy performance of buildings under increasing scrutiny from regulators, a growing number of solutions consultants and large scale facilities mangers are recognising window films as a cost-efficient retrofit solution for existing glazing systems."
Made from tough polyester laminates and bonded coatings, LLumar energy saving window films can be used on glazing systems to provide state-of-the-art glass performance. Crucially, the LLumar line of films offer a retrofit solutions to upgrade glass and help reduce solar energy gain by up to 85 per cent, block 99 per cent of UV rays and radically improve insulation. All at a much lower cost than exchanging whole windows.
"LLumar window films offer sophisticated and sustainable solutions for complex situations and have proven their performance in high profile projects all over the world," continues Reeves. "Our specialists work alongside customers projecting the cost savings, return on investment and mapping the reduction of CO2 emissions. Using similar cost calculations to the glazing industry, we can demonstrate how significant savings and rapid payback are achieved in as little as three years. Put simply, LLumar is a smart investment for any business serious about energy efficiency."
Visitors to LLumar's highly interactive stand (number Q1750) will experience a thermal imaging demonstration highlighting the ability of LLumar's ‘EnerLogic' film to regulate heat. They will also be able to see first-hand how LLumar's ‘Helios' range of films can help protect against solar heat gain.
Aaron Reeves' keynote is entitled "LLumar. Performance film for glass. Low cost building envelope enhancement significantly reduced C02 emissions" and takes place at 12.35 in the Energy and Environment Expo's keynote theatre.
