Filmcote Ltd Revolutionises Passenger Experience at Bristol Airport with Solar Control Window Films

Filmcote Limited, a leading specialist in solar control window films for both commercial and domestic buildings, has recently completed an innovative project at Bristol Airport.

With a mission to enhance passenger comfort and drive energy efficiency, Filmcote has installed 260 square meters of solar film in five departure lounges at the eastern end of the airport.

Enhancing Passenger Comfort

The primary goal of this installation is to create a more comfortable environment for passengers awaiting their flights. By reducing heat and glare, Filmcote's solar film transforms the departure lounges into spaces that are not only visually inviting but also more pleasant, ultimately improving the passenger experience.

The solar control window films employed by Filmcote are specially designed to mitigate the impact of solar radiation. By filtering out excessive heat and glare, passengers can relax and enjoy their time at the airport without discomfort or visual disturbances. This cutting-edge technology ensures that Bristol Airport remains a preferred choice for travelers.

Financial Benefits Through Energy Savings

Beyond passenger comfort, Filmcote's project at Bristol Airport is set to deliver substantial financial benefits. The solar film installation is anticipated to pay for itself through energy savings in an estimated seven years. This means that in just seven years, the initial investment in solar control window films will be fully recouped.  The installation has a life expectancy of fifteen to eighteen years, making it an extremely cost-effective and sustainable choice.

This not only underscores the efficiency of Filmcote's solutions but also highlights their commitment to delivering value to their clients.

A Sustainable and Forward-Thinking Solution

Filmcote Limited's project at Bristol Airport is a testament to their commitment to providing sustainable and forward-thinking solutions to businesses committed to reducing their carbon footprint and net zero targets. By reducing the load on the air conditioning system and decreasing energy consumption, this installation aligns with the airport's sustainability goals. It's a win-win situation, where passengers enjoy greater comfort, and the environment benefits from reduced energy usage.

Kyle Minchin, Director of Filmcote Ltd, stated:

"We are delighted to have been part of this transformative project at Bristol Airport. Our solar control window films have not only improved passenger well-being but also provided a smart financial investment. We believe that sustainable solutions can drive both comfort and cost-efficiency."

Richard Withey, the Energy Efficiency Manager at Bristol Airport, expressed his satisfaction with the recent solar film installation, stating:

"It has been an excellent experience from the initial visit through to delivery. The installers were polite and professional and worked well in the busy operational environment; we have already noticed a significant temperature reduction in the lounges treated."
