What’s the best window film for me?

The best window film for you depends on what your objective is. If your objective is to reject heat, bring down your energy bills, or be more comfortable, you need a darker and more reflective film. If your objective is to prevent fade, you also need a darker, more reflective film. If you are looking to block some heat and UV rays, you can get by with a lower tinted film. If you are looking for privacy, we have films for that. If you are looking for security films, we also have films that fit that need too.

At General Solar, we carry dozens of window films designed to address a variety of common concerns. Some of our most popular films are described below.

  • Temperature Control Films

    These window films are designed for optimal heat reflection, which improves comfort, lowers utility bills, and reduces your property’s carbon footprint.
  • Safety and Security Films

    Safety and Security Window Films add an invisible layer of protection to your window. These products are designed to make glass shatter-resistant by holding the glass pieces together when broken.
  • Privacy Films

    One of the drawbacks of glass is that it is inherently clear. Privacy film can help obscure the view into your home. Films with lower interior reflectivity and higher exterior reflectivity accomplish this.
  • Decorative Films

    Decorative window films are a convenient, affordable alternative to etched or sandblasted glass. Our films are available in a variety of textures, patterns, colors, and finishes, presenting endless design possibilities. As needs or styles change, the films can easily be removed or replaced.
