CoolVu Transitional Film / Washington DC / Metro Areas


There are many useful applications for CoolVu Transitional Films

From commercial building exteriors, retail storefronts, and modern architectural applications, CoolVu Transitional Window Films are some of the most functional and attractive options on the market today. Unlike static window film and tinting solutions, CoolVu Transitional Window Films are recognized by their ability to adapt to the intensity of sunlight, dynamically optimizing your indoor environment.

What is CoolVu Transitional Film?

CoolVu Transitional Films are engineered using proprietary photochromic technology, which when exposed to sunlight it is activated to "transition" from clear to tinted.  By adapting to the amount of sunlight exposure, CoolVu provides much needed sun control only when you really need it. In turn, you can enjoy 99% blockage of UV rays and up to 80% reduction in solar-induced heat increases without compromising the sun’s natural light.

CoolVu transition window film is professionally installed onto existing glass surfaces and comes in several types. CoolVu offers adaptive, or transitional window films, which are commercial-grade sun control films that enhance the appearance of building exteriors while providing significant energy savings and glare reduction. CoolVu Photochromic Window Films provide these same advantages but without the metallic look of commercial window tints.

What are some of the Benefits of CoolVu Transitional Film?

  • Maximize Daylighting
    Traditional window tinting works great when the sun’s out, but on darker, rainy days can make your interior seem gloomy.
  • Conserve
    By blocking the suns heat coming through windows, window films lower cooling costs, conserving energy while saving you money.
  • Protect
    Window films protect your business and family from the suns damaging rays by blocking 99% of UVA and UVB while making your glass shatter resistant.
  • Prevent 
    By reducing the sun’s glare, window film improves comfort by preventing eye strain and excessive light pollution.
  • Fade Protection
    CoolVu Transitional Window Film filters solar energy, blocking out 99.9% of the sun’s most damaging UV radiation while letting through safe sunlight. This helps prolong the life of your furnishings, paintings, wall coverings and hardwoods years beyond normal life spans while keeping colors vibrant. Under intense sunlight, CoolVu responds by blocking out more visible light, giving you unparalleled fade protection compared to conventional, static window tints.
  • Lower Energy Costs
    CoolVu Transitional Window Films can block up to 50% of the sun’s heat, keeping buildings and homes cooler and more comfortable. Assuming proper ventilation, room temperatures can decrease by up to 10 degrees. In addition, most film installations pay for themselves in energy savings within 3-5 years-even when installed on Low-e glass, much shorter and cost effective than installing new windows altogether!
  • Health Conscious
    Prolonged exposure to sunlight can lead to skin cancer and vision problems. Window films are recommended by both the American Skin Cancer Association & dermatologists as effective UV protection. Homeowners with sensitivities to solar exposure benefit by the mitigation of premature aging, sun spotting and excessive eyestrain from intense sun glare.
  • Nighttime Viewing
    CoolVu Transitional Window Films are engineered to provide subtle privacy by reflecting visible light outward when exposed to direct sunlight. Our films are darker on the outside in the daytime and remain clear at night. CoolVu is unique in that it provides for maximum daytime privacy but appear invisible on the glass at night maintaining your views to the outside world.
