Living on the Sunshine Coast we have as they say “beautiful weather one day -perfect the next” however this weather can be rather draining and uncomfortable.
Our average temperature for our summer months ranges between 28-30C day after day. We flock to the beaches or the local shopping centres to cool off and escape the heat.
This relief from the heat has been short lived as our homes have been locked up tight with the heat building throughout the course of the day. Unfortunately we are no longer able to leave windows and doors open due to the very real threat of burglary.
The installation of Crimsafe allows us to leave strategic windows and doors open to gain cross breezes.
Cross ventilation is a natural method of cooling. It occurs by by opening a lower window or doorway to gain cooling breezes and forcing heat through an upper window or doorway. An air speed of only .5m/s can equate to a drop of 3C in temperature at a relative humidity of 50%.
The question often asked is “does Crimsafe block the breeze”? The answer to this is simple- Would you go out or sleep at night and leave all you windows open without Crimsafe installed? Inevitably the answer is no. Therefore Crimsafe will gain breezes rather than detract from them.
The largest contributor to heat gain in a home is through the glass and can be as high as 87%. The installation of 3M tint film will will reject up to 78% of this heat and combining extremely well with the benefit of the cross ventilation.
The reduction in glare by up to 83% can be achieved whilst still providing natural light and therefore giving us a more comfortable environment to enjoy our favourite television shows or downtime on our computers.
The damaging ultra violet rays of the sun through unprotected glass is eliminated with 3M tint film due to 99% reduction in these rays.
So to stay cool living on the Sunshine Coast choose the powerful combination of Crimsafe and 3M Tint and Security films…
