3. I want to know why the Sales Rep/Expert System selected a particular film - This short technical paper titled  "How to choose the "right" film for the job" will provide a basic understanding of how window films work to achieve different, often competing, outcomes and recommends the best film to achieve specific outcome.
4.0 I want pricing and performance data for each film and do my own analysis - We provide Price / Performance Comparison Tables: Side by side comparisons of the key performance indicators and film price $M2.
  •  Calculate which film best achieves your priorities at the lowest cost. Does our "Best Buy" recommendation achieve your priorities? or would another film be better for your job? 
4.1 Compare Solar Control Films
  • Clear window films suited for windows controlled by a body corporate and/or have a $million view at night
  • Lightly Tinted Films will reduce fading and provide some heat protection without making the room feel dark - no daytime privacy
  • Medium Tinted Films suited for living rooms good heat reduction and daytime privacy without making the room "feel" dark
  • Dark Tinted Films suited to bedrooms and where you are prepared to sacrifice some light to enhance heat reduction - daytime privacy
  • Very Dark Tinted Films suited to home theatre and where there is a priority to darken the room (eg shifter worker needing to sleep during the day) - daytime privacy

Buyers Regret?

    • Consumer research shows that people who later regret their Solar Window Film choice most frequently say they chose a film that is too dark.

Get a feel for the finished job

    • To test for yourself how your home will “feel” after the film has been installed, wrap the film sample around your face like wearing sunglasses and look around your room – how does it “feel”? Then do the same with the other film samples and choose which film “feels” best.
    • Do the test twice – once in the morning and again in the afternoon.
      • You don’t want to solve one problem – heat and glare in the morning (or afternoon) – only to create another – a dark room in the afternoon (or morning) requiring you to turn on the lights
