Window Films are composed of thin layers of optically clear polyester films material. These thin layers are generally treated with precious metals or ceramics and/or dyed. These optically clear polyester films with are laminated together using special adhesives and the film are protected by a durable, scratch-resistant coating.
Window film is generally installed to the inside of windows and doors, offering immediate protection from the harmful and uncomfortable effects of the Sun. Window films reflect up to 78% of the sun's heat, allowing you to more effectively control the temperature throughout your home.
Almost all films are designed to be applied to the inside of your glass. The window area is prepared - moving furniture or blinds as necessary and placing drop sheets or cloths under the window area. Next the window is cleaned using water based cleaning solutions, a scrubby pad and razor blade. The edges are dried and the cleaning solution is squeegeed away.
In most applications the Window Film is pre-cut a little bigger than the window actual size. A water based slip solution and the Window Film are applied to the glass. Professional techniques are then used to remove the excess solution, trim film edges and final edge drying.
However, it is still our goal to apply a film that provides you with the protection you need, without taking away in any sense the quality and tone of light, or in any way detracts.
Having said the above: In most residential applications we commonly use window films that are virtually invisible. These films tend to reject about 50% of Solar Heat and 99% of UV light.
Safety and Security window films are available in varying degrees of thickness and shading to meet the needs of every customer. The thickness of the film determines the level of safety and security protection. The thicker the film the stronger it will be in preventing the dangers associated with glass breakage. The shade of the film determines the solar control properties.
Commercial: On average the commercial warranties are about 10 years depending on Film type used.
Manufacturer Warranty against: Peeling Bubbling Rippling Cracking Adhesive failure Delamination Demetallization.
The warranties above are based on the average Basic Film Warranty, some exceptions do apply. We will discuss and provide warranty information at time of quotation. Customers are provided a Window Film warranty card specific to their installation after the installation is complete and paid for.
