Trouble brewingPosted on - February 13, 2018
At Durable we like to think we are good at organising.
Even in a brewery.
And when it comes to piquing our interest and ensuring you have our full attention – anything to do with brewing, ale, pubs, etc is bound to work.
Sitting on the fifth floor roof of a listed old brewery building in the centre of London this all glass modern open plan space is exposed to the sun for large periods of the day.
Which is good.
Most of the time…
Less pain from your panes
But — when the sun’s too strong or persistent it can get really uncomfortable.
The client wanted a film that would reduce the sun’s heat coming through the glass without creating a significant visual impact.
We suggested externally applied Stainless Steel 40 film. It reduces the suns heat by 47% – but its neutral grey low reflection finish means that it has limited impact upon the look of the glass. It was a winner, and blended in with the old faà§ade of the building beautifully.
Traditional silver film is over three times more reflective — and although it would have achieved some of the aims — our solution provided a better over-all end result.
