What it Means

TSER (Total Solar Energy Rejected)

The percentage of total solar energy rejected by filmed glass. The higher this value, the less solar heat is transmitted through the glass.

UV Rejection

The percentage of ultraviolet light that is rejected by filmed glass. Ultraviolet light contributes to the fading and deterioration of fabrics and leather.

VLT (Visible Light Transmission)

The percentage of visible light that passes directly through the filmed glass. The higher the number, the lighter the film appears in color.

EMIS (Emissivity)

Measures how efficiently a window system reflects heat back towards the source of heat, whether the sun in summer or the furnace in winter. The lower the number, the better the insulating quality.

Glare Reduction

The percentage by which visible light is reduced by the addition of film.
