Music to their ears…

Posted on - May 18, 2021



And Leicester Tigers went so close to winning the European Rugby Challenge Cup Final last week.

But Leicester is also the location for some outstanding solar control work from Durable. 

This high school in Leicestershire had a big problem.

Well – two big problems to be honest.

The south facing windows in their music room meant that – when the sun was out – the heat gain was faster than Jamie Vardy. 

This also meant that in order to keep the kids cool they had to have to windows wide open.

It’s a music room.

Yeah – the noise [especially if they were playing Recorders. Does anyone actually like the sound of a Recorder? Seriously – the only thing worse is if your child takes up the Violin….] was proving way too much of a nuisance to everybody else in the school.

Concentration levels drop when classroom temperature goes up – and it’s difficult to do the maths with a bad version of Beethoven’s fifth in your ears.

Smart as a fox

The school called in Durable.

We have got over 50 years in the business and are Europe’s oldest window film company.

We suggested and installed our DX external film as the windows were double glazed and the room needed maximum reduction in heat gain.

The saving was more impressive than Kasper Schmeichel.

The finished job achieved nearly 80% reduction in heat!

And, as an added bonus, the film also reduced glare by over 70%.

The music room is now fit for purpose and the rest of the school have been able to study without ear plugs. 

Reliable, efficient, professional

Durable delivered on time and on budget.



It’s what we do.

If you have problems with glass – solar control, safety, security, privacy – Durable are the experts with a wide range of window film solutions.

We offer a full glazing health check too – so you can have peace of mind and be sure all the glass in your building is compliant, legal, and safe.

Even if your school has had window film applied in the past – it should be checked – it may need to be replaced to maintain its performance. 

Panes may have broken and been replaced – are they protected?

Don’t leave it to chance.

Better to be sure.

Kids and glass don’t mix.
