One of the many materials that we can perforate for you here at IPS Perforating, Inc. is perforated film. Perforated film can be used in a number of applications, but it is most commonly used on windows as a method of light control. In this article, we will go over a few of the benefits that using perforated film in this way can provide in order to help you decide if it is right for you.
- Solar Control. One of the benefits that perforated film can provide when applied to your windows is solar control. The film itself reflects sunlight away from your interior, which prevents the inside area from becoming uncomfortably bright (and prevents glare from obscuring your computer screens, for example). However, the perforations in the film still allow plenty of natural light through, and they allow you to see out of the windows comfortably as well.
- Temperature Control. Perforated film can also help keep your building cool and comfortable. By reflecting the sun’s rays, it helps prevent passive heat gain, which keeps people in window seats from roasting, and keeps the HVAC system from having to work so hard to keep the space cool.
- Privacy. A third benefit of perforated film is that it helps protect your privacy. Applying it to your windows makes it impossible for those outside your window to see through the glass, which means that you won’t have to worry about anyone observing you in private moments or, say, reading important information off a computer in your office building.
