Project Name: Missiouri City Home
Location: Houston, Texas
To protect the valuables and interior of the home from fading, To reduce the total solar heat and common hot spots resulting from the sun’s harmful rays, To maintain high visibility through the windows both day and night while preserving the aesthetics of an award-winning house.
Hüper Optik® Ceramic 40 cut out more than 99.9% of the UV rays responsible for fading, while also rejecting 55% of the total solar heat, lowering utility bills and allowing for more comfortable living. This, combined with the ceramic nonreflective look of the windows, provided the perfect solution in maintaining the aesthetics of the home while protecting it from the sun’s harmful rays.
Mr. Oria of Missouri City, the owner of a house featured in the highly acclaimed Street of Dreams show, says, “When we decided to install film on our house, we were looking to decrease solar input and reduce the UV degradation of our valuables. What made us choose Hüper Optik® window films was the low visible light reflectance and the high amount of visible light admitted. Other films with the same level of heat rejection would have made the glass appear to look like aluminum foil, ruining the aesthetics of this original design and darkening the interior. Hüper Optik® did neither of those things and also did not obstruct the view from either side of the glass. We feel as though we have gained all the comforts of a solar control device – without the disadvantages – with Hüper Optik® films.”
