If you are after to reflect away some of the heat from sun, protect your furnishings from fading but still be able to look out through the windows, this is probably the film for you. It is 90cm x 2m.  We recommend that you only try this sample for shorter periods of time as the film should cover the entire window when properly installed, to avoid a temperature difference in the glass. You will see how easy it is to apply, clean, remove and even reuse!

The window film is very easy to apply, just:

  1. clean your windows
  2. measure the windows and cut the film to the desired dimensions, leaving 2m gap around all edges
  3. spray your windows with water and a few drops of wash up liquid
  4. remove the backing paper (Yes there is one!)
  5. place the the film on the glass surface (2mm minimum from the edge) and glide it into position
  6. start from the centre and squeeze out all water with a squeegee
  7. wipe dry with a towel
  8. remove the second backing paper.

Caution: Make sure to cover the entire window to avoid a temperature difference in the glass.

Maintenance & Troubleshooting Guide

How to care for you window film

  • Clean with soapy water or normal window cleaner and a damp cloth.
  • Avoid using cleaning products containing chlorine that can bleach or discolour the film.

Troubleshooting guide

These are the most common reasons why the window film doesn't stay up:

1. The backing paper isn't removed. There is one even if it doesn't look like one. It's clear in colour.
2. The film is touching the edges somewhere. If it does, air will appear underneath and it will lose its cling. It's safest to leave a minimum of a 2-5mm gap so it doesn't touch the window seal.
3. The window film is applied to a textured glass. If it is, air will come underneath and it will lose its cling. Instead use a self-adhesive film for those surfaces.
4. The glass has already got some kind of film on it (e.g. UV protection / tint etc).
5. Not enough water has been sprayed on the glass surface during application. The more the better to achieve a better cling. Then make sure you squeeze out as much water as possible and let the sun burn off the rest. (Maybe keep the window closed for a day or so until the sun has done its part)
6. The wrong side of the window film is facing the window. Make sure it's the cling side. It's nice and smooth.
7. The windows are not properly cleaned before application. Make sure they are cleaned from grease and dust. This goes for the film too if it's being reapplied or has been applied to a not fully clean window.

Not as clear as expected

Makes a difference for heat coming in, however is quite blurry. Static picks up animal fluff and dust easily when putting on window.

Hi Duncan, thank you for your feedback. That is correct, this particular film is not quite as clear as glass unfortunately, this is due to the UV protection properties.

Don’t use on windows you want to look through

Like looking out from a tent window - this is not clear film in that it doesn’t let you see clear objects on the other side - image is fuzzy and distorted and it’s rather headache inducing. If you don’t care about what’s on the other side of the window and don’t look out then go for it, but I’ve seen UV blocking films that are very clear. Applies relatively easily and also easy to remove. Good customer service and the SEO has been updated to clarify. Many thanks!

Hi Mark, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, and we're sorry the product isn't as you had expected. We had replied to your email on the 27th to try and resolve this for you - I will forward the email again so we can get this sorted ASAP. Many thanks
