Companies add solar film to:
- Reduce glare for employees and computers. Reduce eye strain headaches. Can leave blinds open more often
- Reduce heat and solar load in the building
- Equalize temperature North and South sides (People freeze on the north side and cook on the south side – Making it difficult to control the air conditioning)
- Reduce fading of interior furnishings
- Reduce energy costs
- Better exterior aesthetics (Checkerboard look with blinds up and down and cardboard taped to windows)

You may ask, ” What about the winter solar gain, do I have to give this up”?
The film has an insulating property that will offset any free heat you would have gained.
Visible light, heat & UV contribute the most to fading of furnishings, floors, artwork etc. Fading is dramatically reduced with the Vista UV shield which is a separate layer within the film. Its sole purpose is to block the UV radiation. See chart that shows what causes fading. This patented film is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. The UV is very aggressive in our mountain climate. It can quickly make its mark on your furnishings.
Is your heating and air conditioning system not keeping up with the demand? Solar control window films by CP Films can help return the control to you.
Vista window film has proven itself in the industry to do just that. Along with control comes added creature comfort. For example, Glare Reduction – allows you to configure your office space as you like. Glare from monitors is sharply reduced.
We have an energy analysis program built for the DOE. With this we can model your building and recreate it with Vista Window film applied to compare the two. This will give you an idea of payback. It is not uncommon to see the film paying for itself within just a few years.
Many property owners have already benefited from the installation of Vista window film. Give us a call to discuss your building.
Vista also has a “showcase” film available. This film is designed for showcase displays where you want to reduce the heat and damaging UV rays. The film is virtually invisible while allowing complete visibility of the products on display.
