Applying Solar Window Film to Your Windows

Reducing your energy bills, and your carbon footprint in the process, is an aim for many a modern business leader. You’ll always be looking for new ways to streamline processes within your company and to inspire your employees, clients and suppliers through a push towards a greener working style. One way that you can make an immediate impact on your environmental credentials as a company, and increase work efficiencies in the process is to apply solar wind film to the windows of your work premises.

Be at the Forefront of Environmentally Aware Companies – By applying solar window film you can genuinely state to your competitors and the marketplace that you are actively looking to reduce your carbon footprint. This can have positive ramifications on the reputation of your brand, helping to retain existing customers whilst enticing new ones.

Reduce Energy Bills – The application of solar film helps to control the temperature within your office spaces. During warm summer months the direct sunlight and UV rays can’t get through the window as easily, allowing you to keep staff comfortable all day long. Without the need to increase heating and air conditioning you can have more control over the reduction of energy bills.

Reduce Wear and Tear – Equipment, furnishings and paper documents that are sat in direct sunlight for days, weeks and months on end, will begin to suffer from natural wear and tear. The impacts of fading can be stalled, allowing you to save expenses on replacements.

For more information about solar window film and how it can have a positive impact on your working environment, speak to the friendly customer service team at Bonwyke. You’ll see real benefits to the increases in standards from your employees, reduce your energy consumption and boost your reputation as a company with real ‘green’ credentials, in order to entice new customers.

Installing Solar Window Film At Your Commercial Property

Owning a business brings with it a number of pressures that have to be dealt with on a daily basis. Modern companies have the added pressure of being looked at to be more environmentally aware than ever before, looking for ways to reduce the carbon footprint of the company and change the culture of working practice within an office environment.

One thing that you can do as a business owner that immediately reduces your carbon footprint and lowers energy costs is to install solar window film on every exterior window within your work premises. Not only that, solar window film can have a positive impact on your employees in terms of increasing effectiveness of processes and productivity levels.

Boost Your Reputation – The more proactive you can be in reducing your carbon footprint and making your suppliers and clients aware of your actions, the greater an impact it can have on your reputation. Those companies that can inspire others to be environmentally aware can see a boost in revenues over a longer period.

Reduce Impact of UV Rays – Harmful UV rays pour through your windows as natural sunlight hits the pane. Solar window film helps to block these rays, helping you to protect your employees from the associated long-term health complications.

Reduce Fading of Furnishings – Natural sunlight can also have the effect of speeding up wear and tear of your fittings and fixtures. Solar window film will help to slow this process down, especially important for those types of businesses that have important items and artefacts on show, such as galleries and museums.

Reduce Your Energy Bills – As you reduce the levels of natural sunlight entering your work premises you can have a much better control over the temperature of the rooms. This helps to reduce energy bills over time.

Reduce Work Disruption – If you can control the temperature and reduce the impact of bright natural sunlight you can help to minimise downtime for your workers through glare on computer screens and uncomfortably hot temperatures.

If you would like to install solar window film at your commercial premises contact Bonwyke today. Our team of customer service agents understand the benefits of solar window film and how it can have a massive positive impact on your business for years to come, improving processes, lowering costs and reducing your carbon footprint.

Why You Should Purchase Solar Window Film 

There are a number of reasons why you might choose to install solar window film at your business premises. Our energy efficient product places you in the vanguard of environmentally aware businesses whilst saving your business money and being beneficial in other ways.

Keep Out Those Damaging Rays – Our energy saving window film has been scientifically developed to block out UV rays. For business purposes this has a number of benefits. By blocking out those rays it is a health benefit for staff members who are sat in direct sunlight for much of their working life. In terms of fixtures and fittings it can also help to significantly slow down the process of natural fading of surfaces that are sat in the light constantly. This attribute of our solar window film is especially helpful to organisations such as museums and galleries where the integrity of pieces has to be addressed for the long-term.

Minimise Work Disruption – In every office your staff members are facing computer screens and phone screens on an almost constant basis and if natural light is allowed to stream through the normal glazed windows it can become a real problem in terms of glare. Glare on the computer screens of your staff can cause disruption every single day, causing employees to feel uncomfortable and leading to a decrease in productivity levels. Blinds can be awkward to fit and maintain, with our solar window film a cost-effective and long-term solution.

Reduce Energy Bills – By removing the constant natural light in a room, our energy efficient window film also helps you to reduce the cost of your energy bills by providing more control over the room temperatures in the workplace. The reflecting properties of the film insulates the surface of the glass. Especially those types of offices with large glass windows, there can be an uncomfortable heat in summer time due to a greenhouse effect of the room. Our energy efficient solar window film will reduce this significantly, keeping things comfortable for staff to enjoy their working day.

Invest in Security of Window – As well as the standard solar window film we have on offer there is also a thicker version that adds an added layer of security to your work premises. Once applied to the surface it acts as another layer that supports the glass if it has been smashed. As a way of a deterrent this is a fantastic weapon against potential burglary for a business. The window film keeps the glass together, preventing shards of glass from spraying out and the window from buckling and allowing entry to the criminals.

At Bonwyke we have a range of energy efficient window film that can make a real difference to the green properties of your business premises. To find out more information about our solar window film contact us today and a friendly member of our customer service team will be able to explain the finer detail to you and arrange for a consultation process.

Anti-Fog Window Film

Whether at home or in a workplace the problem of windows and glass surfaces fogging up due to temperatures and the steaming up effect. Our anti-fog window film systems have been specifically designed to help in these situations, for application in a variety of circumstances.

We have two types of anti-fog window film, depending on your situation:

Hydrophilic – This window film absorbs any water that comes into contact with the surface. This way a clarity of vision remains through the surface. It is typically used on the inside of glass fronted freezer units in supermarkets.

Hydrophobic – This type of window film rejects the water that comes into contact with it, running down the surface. It is typically used for bathroom mirrors.

There are a number of circumstances where you may require anti-fog window film, making a big difference to your life, whether at home or in a commercial setting. They can be used on café windows, florists and hairdressers, refrigeration units, mirrors, display cases, shower cubicles, train and bus windows, the list is endless.

To assist all of our dealers and customers we, here at Bonwyke and Hanita UK, have set up a technical help desk to make sure these needs are met.

Part of the Hanita’s unique offering in the window film industry is the high level of R&D work associated with their offerings. This is very much part of the DNA for the company and has become an integral part of their development process.

This level of R&D has resulted in the construction of many excellent external grade films, such as the unique XTRM series, and has put Hanita as a World leader in the development of external grade products. Hanita’s dedicated work on energy reduction, utilising window film to reduce Air Conditioning usage and costs, involves complicated software calculations to show Return on Investments and suitability for glass compatibility.

The window film industry has advanced its products to be more in line with modern building regulations and practices and that means a much more technical approach needs to be taken with clients and Architects.

If you have any technical questions or calculations you need resolved then just email your particular question to technicalhelp@bonwyke.co.uk and we will answer it for you.

 

Potential Take Over of Hanita Coatings Inc

Hanita UK logo

As a valued customer, we’d like to update you on a recent potential strategic change in Hanita’s ownership. We have been distributing Hanita’s window film for over 15 years and very much enjoyed the process of working with them. Hanita has been approached by a strategic buyer, which has reached an agreement about the general terms of acquiring Hanita with the current owners, though the deal is not final as of yet. As you might know any acquisition is a long process and there is currently a due diligence process being carried out, by the potential buyer and nothing will be finalized until the end of the year.

The potential buyer is a US based $6 Billion company and has made a strategic decision to enter new business areas like window film and are committed to build on the existing corner stone of the current Hanita Coatings’ channels to further grow and develop their own business. This company has a very solid financial standing and their intent is to add resources into existing channels in order to increase the market support and execution.

In discussions with the potential buyer, they have made it clear to Hanita, that they recognize the uniqueness Hanita hold in the market and wish to continue supporting the innovative trend.

We see this potential move as a positive strategic one, that will only bring new opportunities for us and you, our valued dealer. All film processes are to remain in place and the supply of Hanita’s product will not be interrupted, so be assured that all products remain available from us.

 

We’re backing UK PLC

_88300969_flags

We’re all a couple of months past the Brexit vote and although the leaving process and activation dates are yet to be set we have seen some negative effects, especially the weakening of Sterling.

Many will say that Sterling was over valued prior to the vote and has now found its right level against other major currencies but there is no doubt that anyone importing goods from abroad is now paying about 12% more for their product than they were before the vote. All window films and vinyls are imported into the UK, whether as a raw material or as a finished item and it will not have passed your notice how trade suppliers have been putting their prices up accordingly.

We have been distributing window film for over 35 years and haven’t become the UK’s largest independent distributor of window film by following what everyone else does. Now the decision has been made to leave the EU, we at Bonwyke firmly believe in the UK’s ability to become a successful trading entity on the World stage and much of that belief is founded upon us helping our customers to carry on successfully trading. Many of the corporate film suppliers have taken the short term view in putting their prices up but our belief is that we are here for the long term and that things will recover to the benefit of all.

After extensive negotiations with our branded suppliers, our promise to you, our customer, is not to increase our prices over this uncertain period and we will absorb what we see as a temporary issue with the exchange rate and make sure that all of our customers can continue to trade at the same cost level as before the Brexit vote.
