Benefits

Improve Skin Protection

The sunlight that comes through your windows can be damaging to the skin. However, you can increase your family’s skin protection with our solar control film, which blocks 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Our home UV window films are even recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, further proving our dedication to quality and protection.

Save Money

Your windows have a significant impact on residential energy consumption. Madico solar control film cuts down heat in the summer and reflects it back into your home in the winter, reducing your energy bills and creating a more comfortable living environment.

Control Glare

When you have windows in your home, glare is inevitable — but it doesn’t have to affect your daily activities. You can reduce annoying glare that penetrates through windows and improve visibility on your TV and devices with our solar control film.

Prevent Fading

Most homeowners don’t realize that the sunlight that streams through their windows can impact their furniture. Constant exposure to the sun can speed up the fading of your floors, upholstery, and home furnishings, making them look worn, discolored, and out of date. Luckily, Madico solar control films reduce the effects of sunlight on your home furnishings, helping you preserve their quality for longer.

These glare control products are available in many shades and hues, so you can enhance your home’s look with your personal style. From reflective silver to solar bronze to designer gray, you’ll be sure to find a window film to suit your tastes.
