1. How do Hüper Optik™ films help me keep my family, as well as home and office furniture in good condition?

Humans, as well as furniture and upholstery, are prone to damage from the harmful effects of the sun. Inadvertently, regardless of whether there is direct exposure to the sun’s rays, the Infra-Red Radiation and Ultra Violet rays penetrate within to cause irreversible fading, dulling and degradation of your prized interior furnishings within a short space of time.

Hüper Optik films work directly to combat this problem faced by most home and office occupants. By eliminating up to 96% of Infra-Red rays and 99% of Ultra Violet radiation, you can be assured of maintaining your furniture and other furnishings in tip-top condition and minimize fading and other detrimental effects that the sun can potentially inflict on your assets.

2. What is the installation procedure and how long does it take?

The installation time depends on many factors. It has to take into consideration things like total glass surface area, shape of the glass, number of installers performing the job, etc.

For more complex jobs like skylights and overhead windowpanes, it would generally require more time and effort as special equipment like scaffolding may be necessary. However, a rough gauge for an average size apartment with the windows of the living room and two other rooms facing the sun would take about one afternoon to complete.

The installation is professionally done by our experienced team. Installation procedures for flat glass is briefly described below:

• Thoroughly cleaning the glass and removing all traces of dirt and debris
• Cutting the window film to the correct dimensions
• Applying the film onto the glass and eliminating all excess water via a squeegee

Avoid scrubbing and cleaning the windows, especially with strong corrosive cleaning agents for a certain period of time to allow for the film to settle onto the glass.

3. Why can’t I just install window glass that comes with similar heat rejection properties?

There are very few, if any, window glass systems on the market today that is able to match the heat rejection properties as Hüper Optik. Many glass manufacturers have claimed that their glass products have solar control properties but in actual fact, their capabilities pale in comparison to window film built specifically for this purpose.

For products such as Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) and other kinds of glass panes that come with an insulation layer encased, they come at exorbitant prices as manufacturers have to devote extra time and production resources to infuse these special characteristics onto the glass.

Besides, these products are prone to various forms of glass failures. In these instances, the entire glass pane would have to be replaced and this contributes to even higher costs.

In contrast, Hüper Optik actually helps save consumers’ costs by providing this retrofit function of separately coating film onto glass.

4. How do Hüper Optik™ films help me lower my energy bills and how much can I save?

Hüper Optik nano-ceramic films are constructed with additional layers of nano-ceremic coatings.

The added layers allow Hüper Optik to cut out much of the Infra-Red Radiation, which is the single most important contributor to heat buildup. By preventing as much as 96% of heat from entering your homes and offices, the air-con load is thus significantly reduced, thus resulting in appreciable cost savings in energy bills in the long run that should give a positive return on investment.

For commercial projects, Hüper Optik can provide energy audits that calculate approximate cost savings as a result of installing Hüper Optik® films. This energy audit is based on detailed and complex mathematical calculations that factor in variables like type of film used, area and type of glass, wind speed and orientation of glass panels, etc. Conservatively speaking, energy savings amount to about 20% and the audit displays very clearly the tangible benefits and rewards that can be reaped from applying our products.

6. How much would it cost me to coat a residential or office unit?

The price varies according to the total surface area of the window glass panels in your premises and the type of film installed. Our authorised dealers have worked out various packages to suit your specific needs.

Kindly contract the nearest Hüper Optik dealers to work out something tailored to your requirements and budget.

I understand that Hüper Optik films help me keep the heat out during hot seasons.
Does it help me keep the heat in during cold periods?

Hüper Optik films have, to a certain extent, Low-E properties that help retain the heat in cold weather. Other Low-E films that specialize in keeping the heat in may have superior performance when it comes to heat insulation, but it compromises on other key features like Total Solar Energy Rejected (Tser).
