UV Window Film from Plays Key Role in Restoration of Charles Dickens Museum

Invicta Window Films takes pride in its UV Window Film product that ensures protection against ultraviolet light, as recently used in the recently re-opened Charles Dickens Museum in London.

Exposure to ambient solar ultraviolet radiation can be damaging not only to people, but also to goods and furnishings even when inside a building. UV rays that penetrate traditional glass doors and windows can cause furniture, fixtures, carpets and other items inside the home and office to fade. Window treatments, when exposed to UV light, can also end up diminished.

Consistently aiming for effective application of modern technology, Invicta Window Films has developed the UV window film as the proven solution to protect individuals and properties within establishments such as in retail displays, executive offices and domestic homes.

UV window film supply and installation forms part of Invicta's wide range of products and services relating to the window film, blinds and shutters product line. The company specialises in the supply and installation of Solar Window Film, Energy Saving Window Film, Security Window Film, Bomb Blast Protection Window Film, Fade Reduction Window Film, and Glare Reduction Window Film.

In addition, Invicta Window Films offers services relating to Spontaneous Glass Breakage, Risk Assessment, Glazing Audit and Overhead Glazing Retention, as well as Manifestation Graphics, plus all types of window blinds and curtains including electric operated systems and shutters.

Demonstrating efficiency in keeping items in the interior of buildings protected from discoloration and fading, the UV window film product from Invicta became part of the new installation designs for the preservation of the Charles Dickens Museum in Doughty Street WC1.

Re-opened last 10th December, the restored museum is a £3M lottery funded project that aimed to preserve the place that became the Dickens' family home from March 1837 to December 1839. The Doughty Street address is where Dickens wrote Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby.

Notably, the Invicta UV film used to protect the Charles Dickens Museum exhibits is optically clear, but will reduce UV light transmission by over 99.5% measured at 380 nanometres, thereby dramatically reducing the risk of fading and UV degradation.

Besides aiding in the preservation of goods that are exposed to UV rays, the Invicta UV window films are also seen as cost-effective way to resist the effects of humidity while also promoting security and safety of the exhibits in the Museum which represent the period, including photographs previously unseen by the public.
