What can be achieved with a window film?

Window films sometimes referred to as window tint or window coverings, provide an easy to apply way of giving your windows a stylish new look or an enhanced level of performance. You can use films as a modern and attractive alternative to net curtains when you need privacy, or as a way of protecting against overheating.

The extensive range of window films available are all advanced products, offering huge improvements on older products like static cling or inferior options such as window stickers. Film is often referred to as sticky back plastic, but we can assure you, it is much, much more than that!

Window film for privacy

One of the most popular reasons for installing window film from The Window Film Company is privacy. Net curtains look outdated and are a hassle to clean while closing curtains or blinds block both the view and natural light. Window film delivers privacy without any of these drawbacks, while also delivering a stylish and contemporary new look.

One of the most widely used privacy window films is Frostbrite frosted film. The film is easy to install, and once in place, it gives the glass the appearance of acid etched or sandblasted glass, providing a beautiful new look that is suitable for the home, office or workplace. The film works by blocking the view from both sides of the glass while still allowing excellent levels of natural light to pass through the pane.

By frosting your window, you are assured of 24-hour two-way privacy, but a one-way daytime privacy option is also available. Reflective window film will block the view from the outside in during daylight hours, providing the exterior face of the glass with a mirrored effect that prevents a view from the outside, but allows vision from the inside out.

Window films can be used to give your glass (and other surfaces) a stunning new look.

Heat, glare and fade reduction with window film

Where there is glass, there is usually an increased temperature. Left unchecked, the sun’s energy and harmful UV rays pass through glass, steadily heating up the inside of your home, conservatory or workplace until it is uncomfortable. An application of window film will help mitigate against this, by reflecting away a percentage of the sun’s energy (heat) before it has a chance to enter the room and take effect. UV blocking or UV protection can be achieved with both mirrored window films and other non reflective high quality products that can still be seen through.

The way solar control window film works means it is far more effective than curtains or blinds, both of which allow heat to pass through the glass as well as blocking both the view and the natural light.

As well as providing a high quality and long lasting solar control solution, window film from The Window Film Company will also reduce unwanted glare and help protect against fading.

How to install window film

Window film, either from a roll of film or cut to size pre cut pieces, can be installed with no prior experience and nothing more than a few household items. The first step in the process is to thoroughly clean the window. Next, create a soapy water solution in a plant spray bottle. This is done by adding a couple of drops of washing up liquid to the spray bottle full of water.

Remove the backing sheet from the film and use the spray bottle to cover the exposed film. Then do the same for the window, covering the entire pain with the solution before taking the film to the glass and allowing it to flow onto the pane. The soap in the water creates a slip solution, in turn allowing you to easily move the film into the exact position you require it. Then use the free application squeegee (supplied with each online order) to push the remainder of the moisture and any air bubbles to the edge of the frame. Use a clean cloth to wipe away the excess water and you’re done!
