Providing generous, energy efficient windows is key for modern hotel and hospital construction and renovation. From short vacations to extended hospital stays, ample light and beautiful views keep people relaxed and comfortable while they're away from home. With energy efficient panes, you'll enjoy the benefits of large windows with a consistent interior temperature and minimal fading and damage to furniture, carpet and decor.
The top priorities for any hotel or hospital are safety, security and comfort. Guests and patients deserve a peace of mind about their environment at all times so they are able to relax and sleep with no concern. When you're staying somewhere for multiple days or even multiple weeks, you must be comfortable Trying to receive medical treatment or sleep in a room that is too hot or cold is unacceptable.
Modern, high-quality windows are an investment. You'll pay a lot upfront, but it will be worth it. Your facility will be more comfortable and secure, and you'll save on energy costs every month. New windows regulate interior air temperature beautifully, ensuring the heating or air-conditioning does not run excessively to maintain a constant indoor temperature. Applying a window tint or security film further improves a window's ability to keep the warm air inside in winter and the hot air outside in summer.
Low-emissivity (Low-E ) windows function as sunglasses for a hospital or hotel, reducing glare while filtering out harmful UV rays. The reflective panes boast a thin metallic coating to cut visible light transmission as much as 10 percent. Reduced visible light transmission decreases damage from sunlight, preventing drapes, carpeting, sofas and other furnishings from fading and aging prematurely. Low-E windows also help maintain a constant temperature to cut down on energy costs. Hotel guests and hospital patients get the light they desire without unwanted heat.
Window tinting further protects flooring, carpets and fabrics from harsh UV rays. Consider installing security film as well. The film strengthens the windows and keeps shattered glass in place in the event of breakage. You don't compromise the view at all while adding protection and decreasing energy costs.
