The heat rays from the sun can cause high interior temperatures.
This heat leads to discomfort or more, and air-conditioning systems are less efficient if they have to cope with large temperature differences and need to increase capacity.
Umisol® window films reflect the heat of the sun, resulting in noticeable drops in temperature. You can enjoy an optimal comfort.
The installation of Umisol® window films considerably reduces the cooling capacity required from the air-conditioning. Your climate control uses less energy and can lead to savings on air-conditioning use of up to 25%.
Umisol® sun-protection window films work like a filter. The higher the outside temperature, the more Umisol® reduces the temperature indoors. The best results will be achieved if foil is installed on all windows that let in the sun’s rays.
Umisol Group NV undertakes to provide high-end, quality window film. We offer a manufacturer’s guarantee of 10 years on our Umisol® window films.
The life of the foils is actually much longer. You can be sure that Umisol® foils will retain their visual clarity and quality properties. Refreshing coolness in summer and pleasant warmth in winter.
Appartments by the sea frequently have to do with the greenhouse effect and this because of their position. Umisol® behaves in an intelligent manner according to the season. The solar factor varies depending on the exhibition angle to the sun. In the summer this factor is lower (larger exhibition angle) and more sun rays are blocked, and so the greenhouse effect is stopped. In the winter this factor is higher (smaller exhibition angle) and so the foil favors the supply of sun rays. This results in considerable savings on heating costs in the winter.
This lovely building in Brussels suffered from the greenhouse-effect in the months May to November. The installation of Umisol® brought a solution for the high internal temperatures without darkening the windows. The windows were not tinted and so had no resistance to heat from the sun. 570 m² of glass foil was installed which resulted in a dramatic drop in temperature. The installation meant the building could no longer be heated up through the windows which can result into temperature drops of up to 10°C to the internal temperature. This ensured a pleasant thermal comfort. Umisol® is a sun-blind that works effectively at every time of day without needing to be operated or the risk of mechanical faults.
This unique property houses 27 apartments in the heart of Amsterdam. The many windows provide stunning views over the canals, but also attract a lot of heat inside during the summer. The high internal temperatures caused an unpleasant thermal comfort for the visitors. It was decided to provide the windows of the apartments with Umisol IR window filters. These highly efficient insulating and transparent film creates a maximum insulation so that the most constant temperature is reached. Umisol® IR filters provide effective solar control in summer and an energy-efficient thermal insulation in winter.
