Professionals installed LLumar N-1050 protective window film to 17,500 square feet of the entire atrium wall.

Situation

The 632-room Hyatt Regency hotel in San Antonio, Texas is centered around a 16-story garden atrium rising over a cascading waterway.

Given the size of the curtain wall, hotel management was concerned that its guests and property would be at risk for potential injury or damage in the event of glass breakage due to severe weather or other hazards.

They needed a solution that would provide protection without compromising the aesthetics of the atrium.

Solution

Professionals installed LLumar N-1050 protective window film to 17,500 square feet of the entire atrium wall.

Made from durable polyester and metallized coatings bonded by a unique adhesive system, this window film forms a shield across the glass, holding glass fragments in place in the event of breakage, and drastically reducing potential for damage and injury.

Additionally, because the film is optically clear, it does not block the view. At the same time, it rejects 42% of solar energy, and cuts down on harsh glare. As a result, it can improve occupant comfort and provide noticeable energy savings.

 

Result

The hotel was pleased with the non-obtrusive installation, as well as the appearance of the atrium following installation. By reducing glare, the film actually enhanced the view through the atrium, while improving comfort for hotel guests.

The Director of Engineering was specifically pleased with the energy savings, which was an unexpected benefit of the installation of LLumar protective window film.
