UV filtering materials

From: Victoria Montana Ryan <eltacorey<-a>

I have a query from an allied professional.  They are considering
using the UV filtering film V-Cool on the windows of a historic
structure, where they have previously used plexiglas.  Understanding
that the "lifetime" of either material is, on average about 12
years, they are concerned that after application of the film to the
original glazing, removal might cause damage. Has anyone a) used UV
film on historic glazing and found damage b) used this particular UV
film in such circumstance with adverse reaction?  The possibility of
using the film on plex rather than windows has been discussed as
well, and has anyone had any problems with such an approach.
