Over the last decade, the role of glass in buildings has evolved tremendously. Where glass was previously restricted to only small areas, constant innovations have resulted in the increased usage of glass as a key building material. Today, glass is the prominent building material and this trend is on the rise.
With concerns of increasing energy demand required to cool and light up buildings; the clear solution needed is to reduce significant amounts of the building’s heat from the sun, maximize daylight harvesting and achieve savings in energy bills. In seizing this opportunity, PMO PRIVATE LIMITED diversified in 2013, introducing iQUE MALDIVES (IQM) as the Master Franchisee and sole distributor for iQUE films in Maldives. Since then iQUE has been slowly penetrating the architectural market for solar control window films.
iQUE is engineered and endorsed by V-KOOL. Established in 1991 in the United States, V-Kool has established a leading premium brand position in the automotive retrofit market for window film globally, V-KOOL is now dedicating its expertise in window coating products and services for the architectural market. iQUE offers an extensive range of applied films for the architectural market. From virtually clear films capable of rejecting high amounts of the sun’s heat without changing the appearance of existing glass, to safety and security films able to counter hazards commonly associated with shattered glass.
iQUE by V-KOOL is a brand owned by Eastman Chemical Company. IQUE is a specialist architectural window film brand that offers leading technology for solar heat control. The core of IQUE window films spectrally-selective infra-red heat-rejection performance is its XIR Technology, a proprietary sputtering process developed in Silicon Valley, USA.

The iQUE Safety & Security films have gone through the Bomb Blast Mitigation Test, conducted by the America Bureau of Shipping Consulting (of the ABS Group) with the assistance of the Canadian Explosives Research Laboratory (CERL) and Defense Research Establishment Suffield (DRES). Favorable test results have demonstrated that iQUE Safety and Security films are effective in mitigating glass fragment hazards when subjected to blast loads.
The films have met the stringent US General Services Administration (GSA) testing requirements under Category C of the GSA Building Classification, achieving a GSA condition of 3B or better, which means that glass pieces shattered from the blast land no further than 3 meters from a window coated with iQUE Safety and Security films.
