Umisol® provides energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly window insulation optimized for all seasons.
You create maximum living comfort with refreshing coolness in summer and pleasant warmth in winter.
The energy consumption and associated costs are reduced intelligently.
The foils are ideal for use in private homes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings and offices.
This intelligent glass insulation technology gives you sun protection, insulation and energy savings all year round.
The energy savings and CO2 reduction achieved mean more profit - an important issue for home owners, renters, facility managers, etc. Global warming resulting from CO2 emissions and the energy costs involved are a key topic throughout the world.
The use of air-conditioning has increased in Europe over recent years and does not look like changing in future. The cost of cooling a building is often more than heating it. And air-conditioning systems are less efficient if they are subject to large temperature differences. Extra capacity is required to compensate in that case. The most obvious source of high temperatures in buildings is solar energy. Installing Umisol® window films reduces the required cooling capacity of the air-conditioning substantially. After the installation of Umisol® window films temperatures drop, and that translates into energy savings of up to 25% per year.
Installing Umisol Group NV window film also greatly improves the thermal insulation of your existing glazing in winter. The heat generated by your heating system is reflected back into the room, so the warmth that would normally be lost through the glass remains in the room. This results in savings on heating costs of up to 30%, depending on the kind of glass. The installation ofUmisol® foils means, then, high energy savings, thermal comfort and reduced CO2 emissions.
This beautiful notary residence at the Lousbergkaai in Gent was completely covered with Umisol® glass foil. The thermal discomfort mainly occurred in the office sections. The French windows have clear glazing with no sun-resistance. And the appearance of such a listed building may not be changed. The installation of Umisol® kept the heat out and let the visible light in, all without changing the appearance of the building.
This modern residence was partly fitted with milk glass. This privacy-glazing has a sun-resistant reflection of barely 10%. This meant the temperature in the medical practice waiting room got very high. The Umisol® installation stopped the heat-radiation by 93%. The appearance of the building and the amount of light let in remains unchanged.
The front face of this lovely mansion is completely south-facing. The installation of blinds didn't resist the heat from the sun radiating in. On the contrary, they generated local heating which resulted in convection-heating. The blinds also darkened the residence. The installation of Umisol® brought a solution for the high internal temperature without darkening the windows. The practically invisible glass foil stopped the troublesome heat, whilst at the same time retaining the optical transparency.
