A clearer view . . . a cooler world The sun's heat streaming through your windows can produce serious heat gain causing your air conditioning costs to soar. Until recently, your only real alternative was to block the heat with dark tints or reflective window coatings. Now there's Solis, a transparent polymer film that is applied directly to your windows. The film is "sputtered" with a patented metallic coating only a few hundred atoms thick. The combination of film and coating blocks 87% of the infrared rays responsible for heat buildup. Solis also blocks 98% of harmful ultraviolet rays that can damage skin and eyes and cause materials to fade, yet Solis is virtually clear. Conventional window films, on the other hand, substantially reduce the amount of normal visible light, and are highly reflective, thereby altering and distorting the natural view from both inside and outside. No other film can match the performance of Solis.
