How Nanotechnology Helps Prevent Sun Damage

Reduce Sun Damage, Heat and Rays with Window Film

We all know how relaxing it can be to have sunlight beaming into your house on a beautiful day.

Unfortunately, the heat can become a bit stifling in large doses. The sun’s rays can also be harmful, especially to young children and those who burn easily.

Our high-quality residential window film uses nanotechnology to reduce the amount of solar energy in your home. In addition to reducing the heat, our films can also protect you and your loved ones from the sun’s harsh UV rays.

The Dangers of Too Much Sun

Natural heat is a comforting and charming phenomenon when enjoyed in the right quantities. However, prolonged exposure to the sun’s heat and rays can lead to serious health problems as well as damage to a building.

Sun beaming through windows regularly can cause a room to heat up in a short time. Those with breathing problems or other conditions triggered by stuffy and humid conditions may be at higher risk in a warmer room.

The sun can also beam in UV rays, which can discolor building surfaces and even burn peoples’ skin. For those with elderly or young people around, rays beaming through the window can be especially dangerous.

Using Nanotechnology to Handle the Heat

We offer the first and only nanotechnology-based ceramic window film on the market. Our researchers developed this material, and it was patented in the late 1990s. 

These simple and effective films provide a way for you to guard any building from the heat. Designed to reduce heat intake and reflect UV rays, our products can keep you cool and safe even on the sunniest day.

While curtains, blinds, or other common solutions require you to limit your visibility, our films still allow you to enjoy a view of the outdoors. While these other common solutions fail to guard you against the heat and harmful rays, our products are designed specifically for this purpose.

No one likes the thought of dealing with a stuffy house or being at risk from harmful rays. With our products, you can get the protection you need.

Benefits of Using Heat Rejection Films for Residential Energy Efficiency

Heat Rejection Film Promotes Energy-Efficiency in Your Home

We’ve all heard about the merits of energy efficiency. It’s usually accompanied by a loving sentiment about taking care of our planet and making a better environment for future generations.

Hand turning a home thermostat knob to set temperature on energy saving mode. fahrenheit units. Composite image between a photography and a 3D background.

That’s great and all, and the positives of such a stance should not be understated – but there’s also another perk to being energy-efficient. Doing so can save you money, and everyone can appreciate that regardless of their take on environmentalism.

Huper Optik offers high-quality window films designed for heat rejection. This will allow you to stave off the sun glare and promote energy efficiency (and all the savings that come with it) in your own home. 

The Smart Choice for Solar Control and Heat Rejection

When it comes to our homes, using smart technology is the right move. They save us money and help us remain more comfortable.

While smart technology is often associated with various types of technology, the one we’re referring to here is any type of technology that allows us to save money and achieve a good result in our home with the least amount of energy usage.

The result in this case is a cool climate and minimum sun glare. Some people try to achieve the cool climate by relying on air conditioners – but this can lead to soaring energy bills and can also cause the cooling unit itself to wear down faster.

Remember, the sun is unrelenting – it functions like a natural heater, constantly beaming rays through unguarded windows. Rather than requiring you to cover your windows with bulky coverings that block out all the light, you can use a non-reflective film designed to reject 99.9 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Sun Protection Means Safety, Not Just Comfort

When you keep the sun’s constant influx of rays from beaming through your windows, you’ll keep your home cooler and much more comfortable. But you aren’t just protecting the planet – you’re protecting yourself.

The sun’s rays can do a lot of damage, even if the time we’re exposed to them is short. Skin can become irritated and even burnt, leading to potentially serious health problems. This is especially problematic for young people or the elderly, or anyone who has a preexisting skin condition.

There’s also a threat to material possessions. Furniture and floor surfaces are subject to fading if they’re near windows during a sunny day. With heat rejection film, you can protect people and property alike.

Protecting Yourself from Sun Glare

One of the biggest problems of subpar window films is the fact they tend to reflect sunlight. This can send rays bouncing around and ultimately right back into your eyes – making it tough to see outside.

When there is a sunny day outside, most people like to look out and enjoy it. When we have the right window films, we can enjoy the sun without being overwhelmed by the glare.

Residential window films that offer heat rejection can offer energy efficiency and protection at the same time. It’s a win-win for any homeowner!

Nanoceramic Window Film for the Marine Environment

Nanoceramic Window Film Offers Heat Rejection in Marine Applications

Imagine sailing away on the open sea or a beautiful lake – it’s a placid scene, isn’t it?

The scene offers the gentle soundtrack of aquatic noises, the relaxing feeling of being swayed lightly by the water below, and the touch of the gentle sunlight above.

But sometimes that sunlight can be less than gentle – it can be harsh and even overpowering when there isn’t a cloud in the sky to shield you from the pounding rays. What’s the solution? To wait for a day when the sun coverage isn’t as heavy?

Not hardly – you can take to the waters regardless of the forecast using Huper Optik’s nanoceramic window film. This patented technology offers the heat rejection technology you need to stay cool. 

Why Is the Marine Environment So Harsh?

The thought of having a yacht party or a fishing trip brings to mind images of relaxation. We think of joy and recreation, and the scene is aided by the characteristics of the marine environment.

But this environment can be rough on the coatings, fixtures, and surfaces of your boat. Even high-quality boats cannot get through a lot of uses without sustaining some type of damage.

There’s also the fact that the sun can beam through the windows on a boat and lead to the cab heating up quickly. While some people may try to counteract this with the use of air conditioning systems or fans, this pushes us into the territory of energy inefficiency – you don’t want to put your cooling system up against the power of the unrelenting sun, no matter how robust your system is.

The good news is there’s a solution. By coating your vessel with patented window films built with nanoceramic technology, you can protect your investment and stave off the heat.

Nanoceramic Window Film Holds Up Over Time

No one wants to invest in a window film that will peel away after the first few exposures to saltwater or freshwater.

The benefit of this window film is that it is built for aquatic conditions specifically – it will hold up against the elements and serve you well no matter how many waves crash against the side of your vessel or how many sunny days your ship is taken out on.

The ability to save money doesn’t just come from the heat rejection, which makes you less dependent on cooling systems – it comes from the longevity of this product and its toughness in the face of harsh marine environments.

Guard Against Glare and See Clearly

One of the more lesser-discussed issues with boating is the sun glare you deal with. The water’s surface may look beautiful, but it can function like a mirror that sends rays beaming right into your line of sight.

Window films can help protect you from this, allowing you to see clearly and enjoy the view without straining your vision.

When we’re talking about the best way to enjoy life on the ocean or lake in your boat, nanoceramic window films can make things much easier. M

Keep a Business Safe with Security Film

Have a Window Broken by Vandals? Consider Using Security Film

When a person is victimized, especially at their place of business, they often vow to never let such a thing happen again.

A business can represent months, years, or even decades of hard work, all culminating in an establishment that is designed to serve others. But some people decide to take what they want, and this can lead to break ins.

Once a business owner has had their window smashed in or even cracked, they may think that investing in bulky coverings is the only way to prevent this from happening again – but even those coverings offer plenty of problems of their own.

Luckily, security film is a cost-efficient and space-efficient solution for preventing this type of issue from endangering a business.

How Shield Series Security Film Keeps Your Company Safe

The windows of a business serve many purposes – they let people inside see out, people outside see in, and they can even be used to promote certain deals.

But sometimes when people see things they want, they may try to take them without paying – and this can come in the form of an after-hours break in where the window functions as a perfect makeshift door. Security film may seem like a flimsy invention when compared to heavy window covers. However, the design is what makes it valuable.

The film is designed to function like a net of sorts, catching a broken pane and stopping it from shattering. This not only helps prevent a mess, but it allows a broken window to be held in place so a person can’t come through the opening.

While film may not look like the biggest or most impactful modification, it is a smart way to protect your windows and ensure your establishment isn’t easy to break into.

Protection from Accidents and Mother Nature

Vandals aren’t the only danger posed to windows. Accidents happen, and a broken window is one of the messiest and most dangerous results you could experience. 

But broken windows don’t just happen because someone accidentally cracks the pane. Sometimes the wind can blow debris into windows, or extreme weather conditions like hail storms can also take their toll.

The best thing about security film is that it provides peace of mind against a variety of factors. It isn’t like an anti-theft system that works only for intruders, or weather-proof design that works only for acts of nature. 

The best way to protect windows from a variety of dangers is to use a tool that is multi-beneficial. 

Use Security Film to Guard Windows from Harm

Windows can sometimes be a liability. While they’re necessary at most all businesses, it is important to guard them from dangers.

For a vandal, a window represents a potential way to break into an establishment. The best way to keep a business safe from harm, be it by criminals or from acts of nature, is to use high-quality window films. 

Shield Series films protect against smash and grab incidents, storms, and more.

Heat Rejection Films for Homeowners

Heat Rejection Films Protect Homes, Promotes Energy Efficiency 

The heat can be good or bad, depending on how much of it we get.

For mild days, a little sunshine coming through the windows is welcomed. But hot, sunny, clear days can also cause a plethora of rays to bombard homes, blasting through windows and heating up the indoors substantially. 

There’s also the issue of how the sun’s rays affect surfaces. Residential locations may have a lot of furnishings inside, some extremely valuable, and sun glare over a long period of time can cause fading, chipping, and peeling.

The use of heat rejection films in homes can help promote energy efficiency and protect homes inside and out.

Using Heat Rejection Films to Protect Homes from Heat

The sun can be a tough force of nature to deal with. Homeowners may like a sunny day sometimes, but once the sun starts blasting through the windows, it can be easy for a home to heat up quickly.

Window film designed for energy efficiency can help provide homeowners with a creative solution to modify one of their home’s most important parts. The idea behind it is simple – less heat coming through the glass means less reliance on the HVAC unit.

This means people could potentially save on their energy bill, while also help protect surfaces both in and out.

The exterior of a home can sometimes be impacted from window glare, but the bigger problem is that surfaces can fade quickly when exposed to sun glare.

Why Surfaces Can Be Damaged by the Sun

Many people fail to realize that the sun beaming through their windows can cause more harm than meets the eye. This is because some harm, like surface fading, happens slowly over time.

Floors, furniture, carpet, curtains, and many other items that may be inside a home can be damaged from constant exposure to the sun. The ability to keep these items safe from the sun is helpful for preserving their value, which makes window films a smart investment.

Fading is a slow process, but it can soon lead to chipping, cracking, peeling, and many other issues that can completely destroy property.

Rather than having to rearrange a home or resort to bulky coverings that completely block windows, homeowners can opt to utilize window films to help them protect their property. As an added benefit, these films can cut down on glare.

Low reflectivity at night means it is easier to see out of windows – after all, the main focus of windows is to provide a view, and the right film can enhance this. 

A Multi-Beneficial Tool for Homeowners

Residential window films are a great tool for providing heat rejection properties and improving energy efficiency throughout the home.

Keeping the home in good condition is a priority of any owner – but few people think about the harm the sun can do. Proper films can ensure surface fading isn’t an issue, while at the same time helping reduce HVAC dependence and even glare.

Can Startups Benefit from Commercial Film?

3 Reasons Commercial Film is a Smart Investment for Startups

Beginning a business is tough – and while the digital age offers people the chance to work from their choice device, some plans still require the physical location.

This presents a new group of expenses and complexities to consider. How can a business owner manage the climate in their building without running up their HVAC bill? How can they improve the glare resistance their windows offer?

What if there was a way to get all these benefits together? Energy savings and more are easy to achieve with specialized commercial film. 

How Can Commercial Film Help Startups Succeed?

Business owners need to be creative in the building modifications they choose – especially in the early stages. Small companies and startups should consider commercial film for its energy savings and other properties. Here are some reasons it could be a good solution.

  1. Energy Savings Puts Companies Off to a Good Start

Many companies find themselves losing money in their early years, largely due to big costs like utilities. It’s a hard expense to get around, as reducing it can often require the use of specialized systems – which can present their own costs.

Luckily, commercial window films are a cost-efficient way to make companies less reliant on their HVAC, saving them money they can use to grow the business. 

While energy savings are an obvious benefit, many company owners aren’t aware that films can also function as a solar control device.

  1. Control Glare and Heat without Bulky Equipment

Many businesses resort to clunky-looking blinds or bulky window covers in an effort to gain some measure of solar control. If it isn’t the heat pouring in and making the place stuff on those sunny days, it’s the glare blinding everyone who is trying to look outside.

Window films can function as a great solar control device – and a perfect choice for startups that need a quick and efficient solution. These films can be useful for stopping heat build up and to reject glare. This not only makes it more comfortable for those inside, but it helps companies avoid the typical coverings people use for windows.

Better equipment and better control – it’s a double benefit that any startup can enjoy.

  1. Easy to Implement for Startups

Energy savings and glare control are great – but another huge perk of window film is that it is easy to use. 

It doesn’t require any complicated installations, and it can be used in a very cost-efficient manner. The important thing for startups is to find equipment that works with their needs and their budget. Every purchase must be an investment, and that’s exactly what buyers could call film that reduces energy usage and glare.

Commercial Film Can Help Businesses Grow

Businesses won’t stay startups forever – it takes some time, but they can get off to a good pace and become thriving enterprises.

It takes smart decision-making and a good approach to giving the business what it needs. Choose commercial film for energy savings, glare control, and more.

The “Loveseat” And Dave The Loveseat Guy

The “Loveseat” That Was Cursed

We had just recently purchased a new home in a new town and had some remodeling, unpacking and getting the kids bedrooms all set up for them. We had every room done besides our reading room which was going to be a formal room for only entertaining also meaning I wasn’t allowed to go in their.
 The room was beautiful looking and had some very nice artwork hanging on the walls with a ladder of family photos and some uncomfortable sitting chairs. My wife was looking for that perfect couch “loveseat” to finish the room and make it perfect. Weekends of shopping and finding the best deal she feel in love with one particular couch I would never get to sit it. This is how our couch story began.

Horrible Love

This is dedicated reading room has three giant windows in them and they face South which we will catup up on this topic again soon. So the room is done and we have our first party a few months later, and have some holidays and the home is perfect all the way around and we are one big happy family. Until the day I was watching TV and heard by wife scream that the top of her lungs about something in the famous reading room. I walk in the room and she shows me how her new favorite couch is fading from the top to the bottom.
Of course she is asking me what happened and how do her new couch turn from a “loveseat” to a “Oh my god this looks horrible” We called the company we purchased this lovely couch from and they came out without any hesitation and replaced it with a brand new one. Once again the room was now perfect and everybody was happy campers.

Sunny Days Made It Happen

Many family memories were made in this room over time and our family was really enjoying our new room, my wife had her reading room for entertaining and guests, she had her favorite couch I still wasn’t allowed to sit in and life was grand. Well until she went to move an area rug which also meant moving the favorite couch and to her dismay what did she find again? Yes the fading on the couch was back again and this time nobody was allowed back in the room while she was trying to figure out if a kid was spilling something on it, was it me taking revenge on her lovely couch, was it a leak or just just poor workmanship on this “Loveseat”

Window Film = Love

So they ended up bringing us one more couch but also said when the delivery men come to replace it they are also sending out a-subcontractor with them. This had me very curious maybe he was involved in warranty work or actually worked for the manufacturer. I was wrong he was a window film installer which I only thought they had window tint for cars, not homes this was very interesting to me. I spoke with Dave and he told me the couch manufacturer said the fading was being caused by hours of the southern sun exposure. He said they could only replace our couch again if we allowed him to apply window film on our windows. I wasn’t thrilled with the idea and told him I don’t want dark tinted windows on the front of our house.

Residential Window Film

Dave showed me a sample of the window film he was going to use and told me all about it, it was a clear film he would install on the inside of the windows but it would be blocking 99.9% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. He said with the Southern sun shining in our windows for the majority of the day that was the issue, it was causing the couch’s fabric to fade in strange lines. Dave said he was going to use one of the best brands on the market called Hüper Optik and he said it will keep the couch from fading, but also make the window stronger, and help us with our energy bill as well. We let Dave the window film expert do his window film installation and in about an hour or so he was done and my wife let him sit on the “loveseat” while he filled out our paperwork for the Hüper Optik warranty.
Since then we have also had our upstairs boys bedrooms done with the Hüper Optik window film and guess what? My wife has been very happy with her new couch for the past two years and I still can’t sit on the darn couch.

Decorative Film in the World of Business

Beautify the Business with Decorative Film for Glass Surfaces

Decorating a commercial business is a challenge. There are always factors to consider when decorating any building, but places of business offer an added layer of complexity.

Design choices must be professional in their appearance and their functionality. They must complement the design of the environment, either interior or exterior, and they must do so in a way that makes customers and staff on the premises feel comfortable.

One creative product many people are choosing is decorative film. The main reason for this is the decorative benefits it offers without requiring complex installations or even a lot of space – all that is required is a glass surface.

This film can also offer privacy, which any business will appreciate for its staff and customers. 

Redecorating the Office Building’s Interior? Use Decorative Film

The inside of any business is as important as anything that business has to offer. No matter how great the products are, customers will remember how the facility looked once they stepped through the door.

Plain or poorly decorated areas will leave a bad impression. But there are many ways a person can decorate the interior of a place of business without having to make too many major modifications.

Traditionally, decorating is put off because it can disrupt business as normal. But window films are the type of simple modification that requires no extravagant installation – they can be easily applied to windows, mirrors, and other glass surfaces with great simplicity.

Decorative films do more than just improve the look of a glass surface – they allow that surface to be used for improving the overall design. They could be colored to match a desired pattern, or used to promote a certain mood.

Decorative films are a great product for design purposes, but the benefits they offer to places of business go far beyond just aesthetics. 

More Benefits of Window Films in a Business Environment 

Enhancing both interiors and exteriors is an obvious benefit of decorative film. But it can also provide superior light and glare control, both of which are very valuable for helping to produce a more comfortable professional environment.

The right window film can control the sun, allowing climate balance and solar rejection to minimize glares for those looking outside. It can even function as a privacy tool, turning any piece of glass into a sleek-looking barrier.

Cover exterior windows? Glass walls for offices and conference rooms? Do it all – window films offer plenty of options for design and privacy. 

Decorative Film and Privacy Film for Commercial Locations

No longer must businesses choose between decorating glass areas or improving their privacy – now they can do both, getting a double benefit from a single, efficient commercial modification.

Window films can provide a lot of return for being such a spacious, cost-efficient choice. Any business owner has to think wisely about decorative modifications. Why not choose one that is also a glare shield, a solar control device, and a potential privacy tool?  

Shield Series Security Film for Businesses

Doing Business in Storm Territory? Security Film Can Protect Your Windows

Having a successful business is about hard work and dedication. But location also plays a role. The area where a business is based can have a big impact on its success.

Some businesses choose their location because it is easy for customers to get to, which makes it easier to turn a bigger profit. Others choose their location because it has a low amount of competition, which automatically lets them secure a bigger share of the market.

But every location also has its downfalls, and this includes weather. Most all areas have the occasional storm or rough climate pattern – but some areas have this type of weather much more often.

Here’s how the Shield Series multi-layered security film can help. 

How Shield Series Security Film Guards Windows

Windows are often a vulnerability simply because of their design. We like those glass panes because they help show off merchandise to outsiders, and provide a view of the world for those inside. But this also presents a problem in areas that experience heavy wind or hail.

The security film can be used to catch a broken pane and stop the shards from being scattered about. It doesn’t stop the glass from being damaged, but it prevents it from leading to additional damage.

By forming a “spider web” in the glass, the film can function as a net of sorts, stopping the broken pane from collapsing into shards and posing additional safety hazards. It can also stop a broken window from becoming a doorway, exposing your business to the elements and potential intruders.

The ability to protect windows with a smartly engineered device like this can appeal to any business owner, no matter where their facility is located – remember, one stray rock or aluminum can fling through the air by a burst of wind and can crack a glass pane. This can put it on the fast track to shattering, unless there is something there to catch it.

Security Film Also Guards Against Intruders

If a would-be thief thinks merchandise could be in their hands at the break of a single window, many will not hesitate. The key is to have a way to stop them, but how can you be at your business 24/7? And do you really want to resort to bulky window shields?

Security film can stop broken windows from collapsing, functioning as a barrier to deter intruders and keep them outside.

It’s a smart way to make intruders think twice about breaking into a facility, and a way to ensure a window compromised from natural causes doesn’t create a security vulnerability.

Security is Something Companies Can’t Do Without

Security is something every business needs. Customers, staff, and anyone else who steps foot on the property is a little safer because of it.

Security film helps shield windows from harm, which makes the entire area around them safer as a result. A safer business is more efficient, and better future-proofed for whatever people or nature throw at it.

Heat Rejection Film for Fix-Up Home Projects

Residential Heat Rejection Window Films for Fixer-Upper Homes

No home is perfect – all of them could use a little work here or there, and most homeowners have ideas of how to improve their place of residence.

But what about those homes that need a lot of fixing up? In some cases, a fixer-upper is sought out by an individual because they want to move into it. In other cases, there’s a lot of work to be done because a person hopes to resell the home on the real-estate market.

Whatever reason a person has for wanting to fix up a residence, heat rejection films should be considered. They function as a climate control device while reducing glare without harming visibility.

Residences with Better Heat Rejection Are More Pleasant

The number one thing people look for in a home is arguably the ability to feel comfortable there. Of course, the term comfort can involve many things.

How secure does a person feel at the home? How relaxing is the indoor environment? The use of heat rejection films can help homes stay cool. It prevents them from being heated up by an influx of rays. It’s also a great way to make the home less dependent on HVAC use.

Think about a person who is moving into a new home – they want to save money in any way they can, so blocking a lot of the heat with specialized window films is a smart move. The same could be said for a real estate agent who is trying to fix up a home and sell it. Imagine the added benefits of being able to tell prospective buyers how they can save money on bills and enjoy greater energy efficiency. 

There’s also a lot of benefits in terms of visibility. Rejecting heat doesn’t just make for a cooler climate – it helps cut back on glare and ensures the window fulfills its main objective. 

Sun Glare Reduction and Improved Visibility at Night

One of the main reasons people fear putting any type of covering or film on their windows deals with visibility. 

It is true that people have resorted to bulky and clunky-looking coverings to shield their windows. But there’s a reason why film is catching on more – it can provide similar heat control benefits so it’s a top choice. However, in addition to being easy to install, it also offers glare control benefits.

Users can ensure the sun’s rays don’t beam into their line of sight while they’re indoors during the day. And at night, they’ll enjoy full visibility thanks to the low-reflectivity this film provides.

A Great Modification for Residential Fix-Up Projects

Fixing up residential locations can be an exciting but complex task. There’s a lot to think about, including balancing cost and schedules with project choices – why not choose window films, which offer a great return on investment? 

Fix up homes so they can be moved into or sold, and know that the next person inside will have the benefits of better heat rejection and sun glare control.
