LLumar Residential and Commercial Films
There are six basic types of residential and commercial films:
- Silver films
are used where maximum heat rejection and/ or glare reduction
are critical, and a reflective silver appearance is acceptable.
The R-series silver films give the most bang for your buck,
but some people do not like the silver appearance.
- Bronze films are used where heat rejection
and/ or glare control are important but a silver appearance
is not acceptable. These films look very good on buildings
with brown trim or siding (such as cedar).
- Neutral grey films are used where an unobtrusive
appearance is important. The neutral colour goes with most
exterior finishes and colour schemes.
- Low-e silver films are used where conservation
of interior heat is also important.
- Gold film is used where heat rejection
and/or glare control and/or a reflective appearance are
desired, but a silver or bronze appearance is not acceptable.
- Security Films are used to protect from glass breakage,
and make it difficult to enter a building through a broken window.
LLumar Automotive Films
There are six families of LLumar auto films:
Premium Dyed Films - good-quality film for privacy, glare
reduction, and appearance at the least cost. Available in Jet Black,
Grey, and Charcoal, these films are guaranteed against bubbling,
peeling, and delaminating for three years, when installed by an
authorized LLumar dealer.
High-Performance Bronze, Charcoal, and Stealth Films -
laminated, dyed-and-metalized films with a lifetime warranty.
Excellent heat control in a lighter-coloured film.
Centaur Films - LLumar's best automotive film, a
high-performance, elegant product with a neutral grey tone.
Guaranteed for life, Centaur offers a great combination of
appearance, warranty, and comfort.
Platinum Plus - a light-coloured, sputter-coated film with a
UVShield - an almost totally clear (untinted) film that blocks
99.9% of the ultraviolet (UV) light striking the glass, and also
reduces heat gain by about 8%. It is primarily intended to minimize
your risk of skin cancer from exposure to UV light. Itís also one of
just two films recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
SUVShield - similar to regular UVShield, but much thicker,
this clear film is intended to provide a certain level of security
for those SUV owners who don't want regular tint on their windows.
LLumar Decorative and Frosted Films
LLumar decorative films offer a palette of colored, translucent,
opaque, and geometric patterned films. Decorative films add a subtle,
stylish and effective level of privacy and glare reduction to any
flat glass application. Eye-catching designs can be created through
layering multiple films.
Decorative films are a cost effective, versatile alternative to the
traditional method of acid etched patterned glass. Frosted films
allow good use of available ambient light while reducing visual
intrusion, making them an excellent choice to enhance privacy in
offices, restaurants and storefronts. Used alone or combined with
patterned film, these visually appealing films can eliminate the need
LLumar Magnum Safety and Security Films
The most popular safety and security films are absolutely clear; they
come in four thicknesses:
Four-mil - a single-ply safety film, used where accidental
breakage, not forced entry, is the greatest danger.
Seven-mil - a single-ply security film, suitable for most
situations where risk is moderate.
Eleven-mil - a laminated security film, giving
more-than-adequate protection in all but the very highest-risk areas.
Fifteen-mil - a multi-ply film, for the ultimate in strength
and protection. There is also a wide range of tinted, laminated, or
multi-layered security films (in silver, or neutral grey) that
provide both solar control and security in the same film.

SuperTint interior roll-up SolarShades can be made with CPFilms
Shade Film, Phifer SunScreen material, or Phifer SheerWeave material.
Silver film reflects the most heat; because of the shiny appearance,
these shades are the most noticeable when viewed from inside or out.
Grey and grey/silver (photo below) shades have the lowest light
transmission, which provides the greatest relief from glare. Amber
film allows visibility from both sides. Shades with grey/silver film
are installed with the grey side facing in, keeping interior
reflection at a minimum.
Phifer SunScreen or SheerWeave are attractive, durable, vinyl-coated,
fibreglass fabrics, used extensively across North America for sun
control in all types of buildings. They are available in a variety of
designer colours. SunScreen fabrics are excellent for glare
reduction, but offer less in the way of heat rejection. The 1000
Series of SheerWeave fabrics allows the best outward visibility, the
2000 Series offers more privacy, and the 3000 Series allows the least
All materials used to make SuperTint's roll-up SolarShades can be
washed with a soft cloth and a mild soap-and-water solution.
What Are Residential and Commercial Films?
These films are specifically designed and manufactured to go on flat
pieces of glass – windows in homes or commercial buildings. Most
LLumar flat-glass films are made of two layers of polyester with one
or more micro-thin layers of metal between them; clear films have no
The type and amount of metal used determines the
colour and reflectivity of the film. Some films have a layer of metal
between the layers of polyester. In some films, one or both layers of
the polyester film may be dyed.
