The popularity of window film is increasing all of the time. With such a huge variety of film currently available, many offering their own unique benefits and properties, we strongly believe that it is only a matter of time before almost every property in the UK is benefiting from the positive impact offered by the installation of window film.
However, with a little bit of misinformation still out in the public domain, we feel that it is important to clarify some of the facts and figures relating to window film.
Snippet No. 1 – Window Film cannot stop the fading of interior furnishings
Whilst it is true that window film cannot block 100% of the harmful UV rays which shine through your windows, the facts are that window film can block up to 99% of UV rays and up to 82% of solar heat (depending on the type of window film installed).
Therefore window film offers a highly effective solution for anyone looking to reduce the risk of fading to their furnishings.
Snippet No. 2 – The application of Window Film will reduce visibility from inside the property
Although specific window film, such as privacy window film, is designed to ensure that people cannot see into a property from outside, a significant proportion of window film is barely visible from the outside and will not affect the view from inside at all.
Snippet No. 3 – Security Window Film is no real deterrent
Security window film is specifically designed to reduce the risk of injury and damage by holding glass together after it breaks. It also significantly reduces the chances of criminals being able to gain access to your property through any window to which security window film has been applied.
If you would like to protect your flat screen TVs, laptops and expensive possessions with our invisible security films. Increasing the impact resistance of the window and then by holding broken glass together, the film can help to delay and deter smash & grab crime. Our films are certified to BS EN12600 and EN356 European Impact Standard. Combined with the use of privacy films, protect against opportunistic criminals!!!
A great example of just how effective security window film can be viewed via the demonstration below:
Snippet No. 4 – Window Film can only be professionally installed
Whilst it is certainly true that certain jobs will require a professional installation, the truth is that some installations can be completed relatively quickly and easily with the minimum of previous knowledge.
Therefore if you are delaying your purchase because of a belief that a costly installation will make the price too expensive, this is very unlikely to be the case.
