UV window film protects you and your valuable objects from ultraviolet rays, visible light and infra-red heat, which can be harmful to you and your skin, and cause goods to fade in shop windows, offices, museums, libraries and conservatories. Guardian Window Film offers a wide range of energy control film & solar control film, to ensure you can enjoy the natural light  without having to worry about UV damage.

Unlimited exposure to UV rays can have a harmful effect on our skin, yet we often forget to consider the potentially destructive effect UV light can have on furniture, objects and materials. The simple installation of sun blocking window film can protect your furniture from colour fading or deformation of shapes and fittings.


UV window film is specifically designed to protect you and prevent solar heat and glare damages as well as incurred costs in your homes or premises. The UV blocking window film can filter at least 99% of UV rays and substantially reduces visible light and infra-red heat transmittance, without diminishing the display environment. Therefore, it enables the preservation of art pieces in museums and electronic devices in offices.


UV Window Film reduces ultraviolet rays transmission to a maximum of 0.5% up to 380 nanometers and an average of 1% in the range from 300 nanometers to 400 nanometers. In fact, Guardian’s UV filter window films’ protective capacity exceeds the standard museum test requirements and those of leading art conservation experts who have carried out detailed research on UV protection films and filters. Rest assured that this type of UV reflective window film is suitable for both commercial and residential spaces.


As one of Birmingham’s leading window film companies, we have had the chance to work on multiple projects. We have supplied and installed both commercial and residential window films including safety window film, as well as decorative window film.  

We have been providing museums, libraries and art galleries all over the UK with the best UV window film on the market. We are proud to say the easel paintings in the Star Chamber at Bolsover Castle (dating back to c1620) are now protected to the highest possible standards by Guardian’s anti-UV window film.


UV Window Film is essential for retail outlets such as fashion clothing chains, furniture stores and any other type of commerce relying on window display goods. At Guardian Window Films, we now have the pleasure of being able to include shoe retailers and tea retailers amongst the diverse businesses benefiting from the protection of our UV filter film in their premises.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is a wide range of benefits to using solar or UV window film. It will protect you from UV rays that may damage your skin or cause discolouration to your furniture. You can also reduce glare into your home from bright sunlight with UV window film, as well as lower the temperature on a hot day by blocking out excess heat.

Normal glass windows do not fully block all types of UV rays. The UV rays that do pass through are enough to damage your skin and cause colour fading to your furniture and assets. UV window film is therefore beneficial, especially in period properties with antique interior mouldings, art and valuable furniture.

Pricing depends on the project, the amount of windows and the window film you want to install. To find out pricing, get in touch with us today to get a quote on your window film project.

Yes! All window films have UV prohibitors within the adhesive so most films will reduce the UV rays by 90%
