Heat Mirror windows are insulated windows that feature a specialized film that covered with small pieces of metal that create a mirror-like finish and are suspended between the glass panes of a windows. These mirrored films block out solar heat and the harsh UV rays of the sun, while allows visible light to pass through. The spaces between the films – known as insulating chambers – are filled with an inert gas, and provide insulation.
The insulating chambers, combined with the mirrored film’s ability to block out UV rays and solar heat enable them to keep heated air inside your home in the winter and hot air outside in the summer. The insulation they provide also stops the condensation from developing on the windows.
