At Tintec we’ve been installing solar films in offices, factories and homes throughout Ireland for over 30 years.
Solar Control Film is a very efficient and cost effective way to reduce unwanted heat from the sun.
It is a specialized film which bonded directly on to the glass to control the amount of solar energy coming in and to keep room temperatures down. Professionally installed window film also gives you a clear and distortion free view through the glass.
Solar films are available in a vast range of performance levels to provide just the degree of shading you need. This large array of products means also that there is a film to suit almost every type of modern glazing or window construction. Ask us and we’ll be happy to advise you.
Installation is carried out with minimal disruption and in most cases office, factory or domestic work can continue as usual. And, solar film requires very little maintenance other than normal window cleaning.
Depending on the nature of the job or the customer’s requirements the film may be installed on the inside or outside of the glass.
While glass provides us with light and creates a sense of spaciousness it is at the same time one of the more vulnerable areas of any building. Anti-shatter films from Saint-Gobain Solar Gard installed by us can be a very effective defence against the worst effects of flying broken glass.
Saint – Gobain optically clear Solar Gard Armorcoat are a revolutionary design. This film is colourless, non-reflective and invisible on your windows. You will not notice a change on the glass, there is no mirror effect or anything to indicate there is anything on it. Your windows will look perfectly clear and allow all natural light in.
The layers have:
- high tensile polyester
- aggressive adhesives
- ultra violet inhibitors

There are options for thicker films, which will offer more protection. The film also has the added bonus of holding glass together when shattered protecting you and your possessions against any damage. They can also help to protect your goods from fading in the sunlight.
Saint-Gobain Solar Gard Armorcoat Solar Control Safety Films are tinted, offering additional benefits, more than just ultraviolet protection. The film has a metalized layer of polyester, coated with tough exotic metals for solar controlled performance. They offer privacy and can help to regulate temperatures inside. It can also help to reduce glare, meaning less strain on the eyes. It can also help goods to prevent fading in the sun. Solar Gard films keep out 99% of UV light and different levels of solar heat, which can also have huge health benefits.
