Proud Provider of Tools for Window Film Manufacturers & Distributors






 Laser Labs M100

One piece meter used to measure visual light transmission on roll down windows.



 Laser Labs M200

Two piece meter that will measure visual light transmission on fixed windows.



Pocket Detective 2.1 Base

Used to measure visible light transmission on roll down windows.



 Pocket Detective Meter

Measures visible light transmission and visible light reflectivity on fixed windows.



 Laser Thermometer

Reads temperatures of solid surfaces, best when used within three feet of surface.  Demonstrate difference once window film is applied to glass with new reading of solid surface.  Not to be used on glass.



 UV Light Source Lamp

Excellent tool to demonstrate, measure or show how much UV window films keep out.



 Heat Lamp Unit

Great tool for tabletop presentations.  Replacement bulb available upon request

(220 Volt).



Low-E Coating Detector

Detects the presence and location of thermal resistant coatings (LOW-E) used on energy efficient single and dual pane glass.  Never requires calibration.  Powered by a 9-volt alkaline battery.



Insulated Glass Thickness & Gap Gauge

Used to measure glass and air space thickness in sealed insulating glass units.  Laser reflections off the surfaces of glass appear on the graduated scale of the gauge allowing you to easily determine the thickness of the glass, plus the air space separating the pieces of glass in a sealed IG assembly.  Powered by two standard AAA alkaline batteries.



 Toughened Glass Indicator

Used to determine which, if any, panes in a window unit are heat-treated.  Knowing this allows use of films that would otherwise be in appropriate on regular annealed glass.  Full set of user instructions and leather case are included.



Strengthened Glass Detector

Allows users to confirm if glass has been strengthened.  The detector can test single panes of glass or multiple panes in a window at a single time, and from a single side.  As a bonus, the SG2700 detector can even identify the thickness of the first piece of glass in the window.



 VLT and Power Meter

The GT966 shows the performance of your film and proves to your customer that your product reduces fading by controlling visible light.  It calculates visible light transmission percentages, power readings (W/m2), measures visible light spectrum (400-700 NM), and includes a digital thermometer in Centigrade and Fahrenheit.  Powered by a 9-volt battery.



 UV Sentry Meter

Position the meter facing the UV source, such as sunlight or a heat lamp (GT962), and turn the meter on.  Place various materials between the meter and the UV source and the resulting UV Transmission percentage will be displayed.



 UV Meter with Temperature

This meter gives UV transmission percentages, UV power, and temperature.  The GT964 is the most versatile product available for measuring UV.  You can measure UV intensities (irradiance), UV Transmission %, and temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius.  Unlike other UV products on the market, the GT964 is extremely simple to operate.  The digital display is continually updated with real-time readings.  The GT964 is powered by a 9-volt battery.



UV & Solar Dual Transmission Meter

Combines the popular features of the GT973 & GT968 into one simple to use meter.



 Digital BTU Meter

This wide spectrum digital meter measures solar radiant energy intensity directly transmitted through glass (or the film-glass combination) in units of BTUs per square foot per hour or watts per square foot.  Effective tool showing the relative effectiveness of various films in blocking solar radiant heat.  Especially useful for showing how a very dark dyed film may allow far more energy to pass through than a much lighter metallic film.



 Digital BTU & Trans-Meter

Use this meter to evaluate solar performance.  It provides excellent resolution, reading low light conditions more accurately than competitors, with no need for adjustments.  The easy to read digital display toggles between power and transmission percentage mode.  It's small, portable, and convenient to take in the field.




Professional Meter Sales Kit with Soft-Sided Case

Our UV & Solar Sales Presentation Kit offers a single source for convenient and convincing sales demonstrations.  The kit includes locations for glass samples, digital meters, lamps, product literature & more.  Show your customer performance numbers they understand, by using our simple Solar Transmission GT968 and UV Transmission GT973 meters.  This demonstration kit WILL SELL your customers because it operates in terms they can understand.  A popular optional item that may be added to the kit is the GT978 Laser Thermometer.

Kit includes: GT968, GT962, GT973, GT973, GT963 and soft case with strap.



Soft Case For Meters

Soft-sided case with strap for meter storage and transport.



 Glass Sample Set

Conduct your sales demonstration effectively by including glass samples to help illustrate the benefits of film over standard glass.  Includes 2 clear single pane, 2 clear IG and 2 low-E sets



PR33400 Beamsplitter Pro

Three real-time measurements. (UV, Visible Light & Infrared)  Perfect for large scale presentations.



AE4600 Solar Gain Low-E Detector

Professional state-of-the-art meter that detects the surface of Low "E" and ranks the SHGC (low, med, high)




 Spectrum Detective meter

Effortlessly demonstrate three performance characteristics at a time: UV, Visible and Infrared transmission values.

The Spectrum Detective shows your customer performance numbers they can understand and proves to them that your "high performance" window films are worth their investment.  Simply slide the glass sample into the opening and see the resulting values displayed.  No additional light sources are needed.  Everything is self-contained in a single convenient package.
