CSC Window Films & Blinds Ltd is unique in the Heritage Industry being the first company to adopt the National Trust Code of Practice for Collections Conservation in Situ. This document was instigated to ensure companies comply with the standards specified by The National Trust. By adopting this code CSC has recently been awarded an exclusive contract to update all of the properties within The National Trust for Scotland.
National Trust approved installer and supplier.
For over 40 years John Chamberlain of Chamberlain Solar Controls (CSC) recognised the damage caused by natures elements and found the solution using Polyester Films which filter out at least 99% of the harmful UV, reject infrared heat, reduce the visible light transmission and still leave a pleasantly lit living or display environment.
CSC film is used extensively in Heritage properties, Museums and Art Galleries.
CSC has concentrated on looking at new products and discovered spectrally selective films which can reduce Infrared rays as well as Ultraviolet which combined cause chemical deterioration. This range of films also can reduce heat loss, something that came along as an added bonus for people in heritage properties.
CSC Window Films is approved by The National Trust to provide protection for its many national treasures.
CSC film is used extensively in Stately Homes, Museums and Art Galleries.
As a Heritage, Gallery, Museums and Country Home specialist CSC work very closely with Architects, Curators and Estate Managers to ensure the standards demanded are met or even exceeded. Initially, the work was to protect Tapestries, Curtains, Wallpaper, Paintings, Photographs, Antiques and Priceless heirlooms from UV damage in Stately Homes, Castles, and Museums.
We then worked with clients in applying insulation films to reduce the heat loss from properties. CSC also works in many properties within The National Trust & English Heritage and have also recently won preferred contractor to the National Trust of Scotland‘s Lightening the Levels project. CSC provides Solar Control Solutions as requested by our clients to enable them to open out previously shuttered rooms.
