One of the largest and newest projects of Emaar MGF is Biosphere project sales office faced multiple challenges resulting from too much sunlight pouring through the building’s glass façade. The excess heat was not only the prospective buyers uncomfortable, it was damaging the sales office equipment, forcing the facility’s air conditioning to work at maximum capacity and substantially increasing the facility’s monthly energy costs.
Working with ecodrive team, the architect at Emaar MGF decided he would try to resolve all of these issues by applying one window film to the inside of the building’s glass façade: Ecodrive’s nearly clear Ecovision series window film, a spectrally selective film that offers 60% total solar energy rejection, 70% visible light transmission, and 99% ultraviolet rejection.
The architect, management & occupants of the office report that the film was successful in performing everything that it was asked to do. “The film creates a pleasing environment inside the office,” they said. “It provides protection for our fabrics & furnishings and offers significant energy savings. I am fully satisfied with the quality and performance of the ecodrive film.”
