Private Residence Denver, Colorado:
"CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN" UNTIL YOU BUILD YOUR DREAM
Heat, Glare And Fading In this case it is a dramatic three story home with cathedral ceilings and huge trapezoidal windows that truly bring the outside in. The home, set high in the Rockies near Denver, Colorado, is continually drenched in sunlight, and features panoramic views in every direction. As breathtaking as the views are, the sunís brightness compromised the views and the sunís UV rays damaged the furnishings, wood floors and precious artifacts in the interior. Therefore, in the summer months, there was a real problem with solar heat.
In discussing the sunlight problems with neighbors it was learned that solar control window film had proved to be the solution to a similar residential problem in a nearby home. A professional window film dealer in the area was consulted, who quickly assessed the situation and provided an individual specific solution to the dilemma.
The recommendation was for the installation of VISTA Mirage (V38 SR CDF), an innovative dual reflective film that blocks all ultraviolet light by 99.9%, reduces glare by 58% and lowers solar heat by 47%.
The transparent, razor-thin film permits desirable daylight to penetrate interiors while keeping out excessive heat and damaging UV rays. (Ultraviolet light is the primary cause of fading with light and heat playing a significant secondary role.) VISTA Mirage provides excellent visibility from inside to out at all times of day and night. Most high solar rejection window films produce a situation at night that prevents people inside the home from seeing out but allows those outside to see in! This is a major setback to homeowners in warm sunny climates that wish to control the sunís energy during the hot day yet preserve privacy and night time views as well. The VISTA Mirage, virtually clear film, comes with a lifetime warranty for materials and labor.
With VISTA film on the windows, the problems with sun glare and heat have gone away and yet the magnificent day and evening views have been preserved. Moreover, the furnishings, fabrics, artwork and wood flooring are not going to fade away. And no one will know that the film is in place!
