Reduced Heat Gain and Glare for Electrical Store

Express Electrical are a complete electrical solutions provider based in Wigan, Lancashire. The store was experiencing issues with heat and glare entering through the large windows, which was making the office environment uncomfortable. The store already had blinds installed, but the regular cleaning, repairs and maintenance of these motivated the management to seek a more effective solution.


As market leaders in solar control, ARC Window Films installed a high performance dual reflective window film to alleviate the heat and glare issues. The chosen window film product reduces heat gain by up to 86% and glare by 95%, and gives a modern look to the front of the store. The reduction in heat gain meant a reduced use of air conditioning, and improved comfort for staff. The store also benefits from the one way mirror effect the glazing now has – staff can see outside yet enjoy complete privacy from passers-by.
