Energy Efficient windows Cause burns and melting turf

Property owners often know that energy-saving windows are an excellent way to reflect solar energy away from their homes, making their home cooler and more energy conscious. 

However, energy-saving windows cause reflections that can damage artificial turf, patio furniture, home siding, and even natural grass and plants.

"Note that any reflected surface can increase light, so reflection from old windows or stainless steel grilles can have the same effect, but this is not as common as energy-efficient windows."

Window films can help prevent your artificial turf from melting and reduce the glare of your glass windows and doors. Since the goal is to reduce reflection, Turf Shield window film does not contain metal, and it mustn't so that it can be applied to any glass surface without worry of damaged window seals. Turf Shield Window Film is applied to the outside of the glass and comes in three options clear, white, and black. Turf Shield Window Film diffuses the sun's rays to reduce the reflections that lead to burning or melting.
