MicroShade Film® is a passive micro-structured film, which – when placed inside a glazing unit – can block almost all the energy from the sun, provide superior transmission of daylight and at the same time ensure that the view to the outside is maintained.

With MicroShade® you get:

 
Best in class technological performance:

  • Effective g-value: 0,08 - 0,15
  • LT0: 50-60%
  • Natural light (RA-value > 95%)


Improved comfort and building efficiency:

  • Shading while maintaining view out
  • Improved office utilization – remove the heating issue at the facade
  • Effective beam shading – you can sit near the facade without discomfort
  • Enhanced energy & sustainability profile


Better financials:

  • Superior OPEX/TCO/LCC profile
  • Enhanced IRR, NPV & Yield

Akademiska Hus, Stockholm, says:

“MicroShade® provides us with both light and outlook, which we didn't have with our previous solar shading solution, an external screen. Previously, we had to fully close it when the sun was out, both because of the heat but also because the sun shone directly into the offices. In the summer, the sun's direct, penetrating rays are filtered out by MicroShade, allowing just light in. So we can see out of the window, rather than looking at a screen.

MicroShade® has opened up the room - much to our delight,” says Anders Blomquist, Infrastructure Manager, KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The building, leased by KTH, is owned by Akademiska Hus.

Malling School, Aarhus, says:

In the words of Architect Gorm Albertsen, responsible for schools and institutions in Aarhus Municipality: “Our own measurements confirm that the temperature from the sun has been significantly reduced using MicroShade®, in some cases from 30 down to 25.5 degrees. It used to be boiling hot in the sun and it could be difficult to read what was written on the board.

The problem's been solved and everyone's a lot more comfortable.”
