Prestigious bike accessory distributor reduces heat and glare with solar window film

Bob Elliot & Co is a UK wide distributor of high quality bike accessories based in Chorley, Lancashire. The company prides itself in providing exceptional customer service – utilising the best products, staff, and premises in order to consistently exceed its customers’ expectations. With this in mind, a solar window film was the obvious solution to the heat and glare issues faced by staff, and ARC Window Films are industry leading experts in solar control solutions.


The Problem

Despite already having vertical blinds installed at their newly constructed distribution centre, the staff fought a constant struggle against heat and glare entering through the glazing at the main entrance. The cluttered appearance of the offices from the outside was also a concern, as positive first impressions are essential for any business. Bob Elliot and Sons needed a solution which would be in-keeping with the modern appearance of the premises, and solve the issues of overheating, and glare on computer screens.


The Solution

Following a site survey and consultation, ARC Window Films supplied and installed a modern dual reflective solar window film to the glazing.

The performance from the solar window film is impressive:

  • Glare has been reduced by over 95%
  • Head gain has been reduced by over 75%

Leading to improved visual and thermal comfort for staff and customers.


Additionally the solar window film acts as a one way mirror, meaning that the staff enjoy privacy from the outside world whilst still being able to see outside themselves. The building looks rejuvenated and modern in appearance too! The combination of solar window film and blinds works perfectly, as the film gives protection during daylight hours and the blinds can be closed of an evening, ensuring that the staff are protected and comfortable 24/7.
