Double Tree Hotel

Heat Rejection and Decorative


During a major remodel, the DoubleTree at Arlington VA needed an experienced contractor to perform a difficult interior skylight installation extending over the escalator. In addition to the needed reduction in solar heat gain over the escalators, the design team had specified 3M Oslo film for visual diffusion and black opaque for visual masking.


HITT Contracting, one of the top 100 largest general contractors in the United States, counted on N.G.S. to be their turn-key window film solutions provider. By illustrating how the originally  specified film above the escalator had very little heat rejection and generated concerns for thermal stress fracture,  NGS helped the Marriott choose a more suitable skylight film and even saved the Marriott some money in the process
