"Big D” Hilton Blocks Ultraviolet Damage
SituationThe Dallas Parkway Hilton is a 14-floor high rise hotel with beautifully appointed guest rooms, an elegant restaurant,meeting rooms, and a fitness center located in the heart of north Dallas. The hotel recently underwent a total renovation.
The renovation included the installation of Vista by LLumar Sunrise Bronze solar control window film on all of the windows of the 310 guest rooms and suites. An installation of 30,000 square feet of film was required to complete the project.
Vista V33 Sunrise Bronze film was chosen by Hilton management for its aesthetic appeal and to provide a high degree of solar protection for the sun-drenched windows. Preserving light without glare produces cool comfortable interiors. With Vista Sunrise on the hotel windows, the glare is reduced by 57 percent and the solar heat by 60 percent.
Equally as important as the guest comfort and energy savings provided by Sunrise Bronze, is the protection given to the new guest room furnishings. The newly installed film blocks more than 99 percent of ultraviolet rays, helping protect against premature fading.* Ultraviolet rays have also been associated by the medical community with premature aging of skin as well as some skin cancers, including melanoma.
