“We observed an immediate noticeable reduction in glare both directly from the sun and the light reflected from the snow. Additionally, as soon as the film had been applied we noticed a significant difference in room temperature near the glass”.
Upon the installation of new, larger, thick double glazing to help reduce heat loss that had been experienced through the previous single pane windows at the Victorian Falls Creek Alpine Resort Management Board building, a new problem for the staff became apparent. The glare from the sun entering the office had increased and was particularly uncomfortable during the snow season. The staff were also becoming more aware of hot spots near the glass.
Falls Creek Alpine Resort Management Board Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Smythe, met with Chris Wingard from Alpine Tint to discuss an affordable solution for these issues. After ensuring the film was suitable for the 6mm double glazed safety glass, Chris recommended Solar Gard TrueVue 15 window film to be installed on the inside of the windows because of its high glare reduction and heat reduction properties. It took the Alpine Tint team just two days to install 47 square metres of the window film.
Following the installation, Stuart Smythe happily reported “We observed an immediate noticeable reduction in glare both directly from the sun and the light reflected from the snow. Additionally, as soon as the film had been applied we noticed a significant difference in room temperature near the glass”.
Stuart also shared that the staff had commented on how impressed they were with the instant change to their working environment.
