Large glass manufacturing company with solar heat problems on shop floor.  Even though the glass was already of a very high standard the benefits of a solar ocntrol exterior kynar film were needed with edge sealing to stop corrosion of film. Work in progress at glass manufacturers.  As you can see scaffolding was used.  All installation teams have pasma certificates are IPAF trained and hold CSCS cards. What a difference!


Safety window film will greatly improve the strength of your glass. In the event of glass breaking safety window film will contain the fragments of glass thus protecting any bystanders. Safety window film will upgrade existing glass so inferior glass does not need replacing and will comply with regulation 14.

Installation on conservatory roof showing difference contrast in colour

Insulation window film can help in both winter and summer. It will give up to 15% reduction of winter heat loss (single pane) and hence a reduction in energy costs.

In summer the film can help to reduce glare by up to 44%, giving a great improvement in working conditions. This film also absorbs 33% of solar energy thus giving a reduction in air-conditioning costs


Large roof at one of the prestigious De Vere Hotels.  Although these were large panels very high up, we were able to achieve a very impressive finish giving the hotel  a reduction in heat and glare whilst adding a stunning visual effect at night with creative lighting.

Solar overheating and glare can increase air conditioning costs and cause discomfort to building occupants. Window film provides a solution to these problems:

  • Reduce unwanted solar heat gain

  • Block damaging ultraviolet rays

  • Provide privacy

  • Improve visual appearance

  • Reduce uncomfortable glare

  • Reduce fading of textiles and furnishings

  • Reducing energy costs

Solar control window film is a cost effective solution. Manufactured from low haze, optically clear polyester in a range of different colours and constructions.

Warranted for up to 10 years depending on film type with a real life expectancy far exceeding this. All internal films have a patented scratch resistant coating which ensures low maintenance and durability.

Suitable for application to residential and commercial properties; conservatories, offices, housing, shop fronts, whatever the building or the problem a suitable film is available.


Large coach company had heat problems in reception area. Staff were unable to hold stair rail as it was too hot.  So the application of a blue mirror finish solar control film was advised which not only solved a heat problem but added an eye catching contemporary feel to the building.

Mirrored films are otherwise known as daylight privacy films - you can see out during the day but others cannot see in.

Blackout or whiteout films have a 0% light transmission and are used effectively to hide unsightly views, or prevent people seeing into a secured area.

These films give a uniform appearance to a glazed area.


When a building is being refurbished a not so obvious choice is its glass. What we mean by this is that by installing a solar control window film not only will the occupants of the building have a more comfortable working environment due to a lowering of solar heat gain and a reduction in glare but the film will work alongside the air conditioning units to reduce energy consumption meaning lower bills meaning more profit in your pocket.

Not only that but a reduction in CO2 emissions. If you think your building is in need of some attention then call for a building analysis to determine your potential savings. With paybacks as low as under 2 years and guarantees of 10 years + what have you got to lose?

Go on put your green feet on!

Devin Grosse (Manager Holiday Inn Norwich North) comments about 1st Call Glass Care

Liaising with the team of 1st Call Glass was effortless and the end product has resulted in a more comfortable working environment for our staff and customers alike and gives us a fresh look to our building.
