From May 2019, Complete Film Solutions is now servicing residential homes and commercial premises in the Canterbury and Otago Regions in New Zealand’s South Island.
Complete Film Solutions’ Director, Brent Caithness, is a Kiwi born and bred in Geraldine, and later Timaru, with most of his family still living in the area.
On returning to New Zealand to visit family over the cooler months in 2018, Brent identified that many New Zealanders are suffering from heat loss through non-insulated windows in the icy winter months in the South Island. Many are attempting to save up to install retrofitted double glazing, and were unaware that 3M now offer an insulated window film that provides similar benefits to double glazing, with a LIFETIME warranty, at a fraction of the cost of retrofitting double glazing. Refer to our article comparing the costs here.
3M™ Thinsulate™ is the product that New Zealanders have been waiting for. This revolutionary film comes in 2 different colour variants – the near invisible 75% VLT (visible light transmission) for retention of maximum natural light, and the slightly darker 40% VLT for areas where you may be experiencing increased glare or summer heat gain, or wish to have more privacy compared to the 75%.
Our studies have shown that the 3M™ Thinsulate™ outperforms both double glazing AND low-e glass for summer heat rejection, and will perform as well as low-e glass and almost as well as double glazing for winter heat retention. Watch our winter video below:
