  • Window Film Industry Definitions

    Visible light Transmitted (VLT): The percentage of visible light that passes directly through filmed glass: the higher the number, the lighter the film.

    Total Solar Energy Rejected (TSER): The percentage of total solar energy rejected by filmed glass. The higher this value, the less solar heat energy is transmitted by the filmed glass.

    Visible light Reflection: The percentage of visible light reflected back from the glass.

    UV Rejection: The percentage of ultraviolet light that is rejected by filmed glass. Ultraviolet light contributes to sunburn and other harmful skin conditions from the sun and to the fading and deterioration of fabrics and leather. The higher the number, the more UV rays are blocked.

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