Ultra Shield Films can help home and building owners save money on utility bills by rejecting up to 82% of the sun’s heat before it ever enters a window. Once window film is professionally installed, the overall demand or load on any cooling unit will decrease. According to U.S. Department of Energy statistics, solar heat gain through windows is responsible for approximately one third of a building’s total energy used in cooling costs.
Window film has evolved to become a powerful and effective solution for home and building owners as well as commercial property management companies effectively reducing C02 emissions and lowering overall energy costs. Ultra Shield Films cuts glare and effectively blocks out 99% or more of all harmful UV rays, and help slow down or reduce carpet and furniture fading in the workplace and in the home. Many building projects can qualify to receive credited points toward attaining the LEED certification.
What is LEED Certification?
In the United States and in a number of other countries, LEED certification is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. Achieving LEED certification is the best way for you to demonstrate that your building project is truly “green.”
The LEED green building rating system — developed and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington D.C. based, nonprofit coalition of building industry leaders — is designed to promote design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing the negative environmental impacts of buildings and improving occupant health and well-being.
