Polycarbonate Window Film for a happier workforce
Our client is a successful clothing manufacturer and retailer based in Greater Manchester. An old converted warehouse is the client’s manufacturing base, with a polycarbonate roof which was very inefficient. Their workforce is based on the shop floor, with machinery operating all day in what is a very busy working environment.
Solar heat gain
During warm weather, the building suffered with extensive solar heat gain as a result of the inefficient roof material and staff became very uncomfortable. Working temperatures which are too warm create an unpleasant environment, lowering staff morale and adversely affecting productivity. Health and safety regulations require that employers and facilities managers maintain a “reasonable” temperature in the workplace, and our client wanted to ensure that it was fully compliant.
Why ARC Polycarbonate Window Film?
The client contacted ARC after various roofing contractors advised that they were unable to remedy the problem. The roof of the building incorporated many internal fixings and metalwork, creating unusual shapes and difficult – and expensive – replacement.
The retrofit application of ARC polycarbonate window film was a logical choice. It could be cut to size and easily fitted around the roof’s features. Our expert installation team completed the project quickly, with no mess or disruption and immediate benefits for the client.
How it works
ARC Polycarbonate Window Film is an ideal solution to problems such as solar heat gain, glare and UV fading, and is used by both home and business owners. It is designed specifically for installation to polycarbonate surfaces. It is clean, quick to install, requires no additional maintenance and often goes unnoticed once installed.
Reduce Heat, Save Energy?
ARC Polycarbonate Window Film can reject up to 83% of the sun’s heat, preventing it from passing through the polycarbonate sheet. This helps to keep heat out during summer, lowering cooling costs. Fast paybacks make polycarbonate window film a profitable investment as well as a proven solution. See more on energy saving window film.
Polycarbonate Window film – the perfect solution
A retrofit installation of polycarbonate window film was much more purse-friendly for our client than a replacement of the original polycarbonate sheets, providing an inexpensive solution which reduced heat, reduced solar glare and improved working conditions on the factory floor.
The neutral tone of the film meant that the appearance of the roof was unaffected, with natural light still flowing freely into the building. This is a great example of a straightforward window film installation which has made a big impact on our client’s operations, improving conditions for staff and positively contributing towards productivity.
