Architectural window films are retrofit products designed to enhance glass performance and appearance.  These films are generally applied to the interior surface of a glass window of a commercial or residential building.


The Need for Customization:  Glass makes up a significant portion of the structural composition of many buildings. It serves a number of functions, from glass walls/partition to enhancing office security and privacy. But for many offices today, glass windows also present opportunities for customization. Custom decorative window films are self-adhesive, come in various shades and can fulfill a number of useful functions. Whether it’s to serve as a decorative feature or promote a business’s branding, glass features on the building’s interior or exterior are customized to achieve the desired effect.

Decorative Window Film:

  • Privacy without compromising natural light
  • Enhance interior space with design and/or color
  • Fraction of the cost of etched glass
  • Removes excessive light and heat
  • Provides an extra insulation thus reducing energy use and cost
  • Helps prevent broken glass from shattering
  • Simple to change designs and/or remove

Windows are the soul of a building, and today’s architectural designs have evolved to reflect this, using more and more glass. While this satisfies a true human desire for natural light, it also has a downside: less protection from solar heat, glare, and harmful UV rays. The sun’s light and heat can make your office or building uncomfortable and create unwanted fading of office furnishings. 

On a positive note, solar films can provide for savings with your heating and air conditioning and reduce glare, fading, and protecting employees from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV.  Some of the films available from Signals Defense can reduce inside temperature, earn LEED credits, improve Energy Star scores, and reduce energy consumption.

Our solar window films allow you to maintain the beautiful benefits of windows without making sacrifices. By filtering much of the solar spectrum, window film technology contributes to overall productivity, satisfaction and happiness. Plus, films are less expensive than window replacement and won’t darken rooms or hide desirable views. Explore our full range of products to find the ideal solar film solution for your building.
