A film worth seeing in Cape Town

Klingshield Cape Town

Worldwide people are extremely energy conscious at the present time. A great deal of thought and planning is now given to the insulation of offices blocks, industrial buildings and homes. In South Africa more and more Architects, Town Planners, Structural Engineers, are committed and aware of the necessity to control the heat in and around glass.

Thermal transmissions, known as BTU (British Thermal Units) value is a measurement of heat flow. Klingshield has embarked through it’s research and development department at its window testing farm where all glass with film is exposed to direct sunlight at 45 degree angles all day long. The difference between ordinary glass and treated glass is measured for overall performance and longevity.

It can be proved that ordinary glass allows more thermal transmission than glass treated with Klingshield’s solar control window films. Ordinary glass permits 200 BTU’s through and treated glass with Klingshield’s highest performing film only allows 50 BTU’s through.

Klingshield solar film works like this – in summer the heat rays are reflected away from the window resulting in a cooler temperatures inside. If airconditioning is used it can be more efficiently and economically maintained. It’s use may even be totally eliminated. Glare too, which can be blinding, can also be eliminated or at least cut by 88%.
