This very light neutral ultraviolet filter was specified for the windows of the newly restored state apartments at Windsor Castle following the great fire of November 1992. The majority of these rooms face due south and the neutral grey colour, providing 32% light reduction ensures additional protection against the harsh sunlight. Sun-X Traditional Conservation Blinds were also specified and installed to provide the best possible protection for the works of art, fabrics and furnishings.
Sun-X MT65 very light neutral ultraviolet filter is also used extensively in retail premises to protect window displays. The neutral colour of this film ensures that there is no change to the colour of the transmitted light and therefore no alteration to the colour of display items while the 100 micron thickness of this safety grade film ensures additional protection against damage to stock by flying glass particles in the event of vandalism or accidental breakage.

What is window film?
An off-shoot of interstellar travel over 30 years ago, it's essentially a polyester sheet, with an adhesive backing which bonds to glass. Sun-X has been applying window film since its inception, and even treating windows prior to this.
Will it have bubbles and creases?
No, not when professionally installed by Sun-X trained and highly experienced personnel. The clearer variety of films will even be invisible to the human eye.
Will it make the room dark of the windows mirrored?
Not necessarily. While dark reflective films will provide maximum heat reduction, there are now available some extremely effective 'clear' non-reflective solar films, making them ideal for listed buildings, or where high light levels are required.
