Leaders in Window Film

Advice from the window film leaders

Safety and security window film is designed to help hold glass fragments in place after a sheet of glass has broken. Solar and energy-saving films are manufactured to be energy-efficient and reduce heat and light transfer.

It is important for consumers to understand that while any film on glass adds a certain default level of safety, there is no intended safety or security benefit unless the product is tested and listed as such by the manufacturer.

In order to avoid buying the incorrect product it is important that the consumer asks to see the company's literature – because this has to state the specific benefits of each particular product.

There have been incidences in the past of DIY lifestyle magazines advising people to save money by trying at-home methods in order to keep their houses cool in summer and warm in winter. A lot of misleading, and sometimes incorrect, information has been given about the advantages and disadvantages of window film, solar film, safety film and car window tinting.

In addition, what’s important to know is that there is a lot of risk involved in using an unaccredited window film supplier and fitter. Not only may the product not do what it is supposed to do but chances are, with incorrect application, the film will soon start to crack and peel and may even permanently damage or destroy the look of the glass.
