Here in Fort Worth, glare through windows is a real problem. It is especially difficult for hospitality locations that cater to overnight guests.–like hotels. Glare and heat make spaces almost unbearable and for establishments that make a living off guest satisfaction, this causes issues. The case study below shows how we at Fort Worth Window Film were able to solve excessive glare issues for a Colorado Marriott while providing other benefits too.
The Issue: Solar Heat Gain and UV Radiation on Hotel Windows
A hotel in Colorado was looking for a solution to intense glare, UV radiation and solar heat gain on their towering convention center windows. The location of the windows was central to their event center but remained empty from about 2 pm to sunset because of the heat and glare. The hotel wanted the area to be enjoyed by guests as it was created to do but was unsure of how to fix the issues. The windows also faced westward with lovely mountain views and the hotel wanted to keep these visible. This made the problem that much harder to solve.
The Solution: Llumar Window Film For Hotel Windows
After consulting with hotel management to find out just what their goals were for the window’s appearance, we decided to install samples of some of our top solar control films. We chose spectrally selective films that worked great on heat and UV radiation but their appearances varied. For this particular hotel, the location, size, and orientation of its windows and their desire aesthetic–the right choice ended up being Llumar DRN-35.
The Result: UV Protection and More
The Llumar DRN-35 let in enough natural light to keep the expansive area well-lit plus kept enough clarity on the windows for guests to still enjoy the views. The UV blocking it provided protected their very beautiful and expensive interiors too. Lastly, the film made temperatures in the space more even. This area that was empty before is now one of the most popular places for patrons to sit and enjoy the gorgeous Colorado ambiance.
