Step by step instructions on how to apply window film & frost glass

Regardless of the type of window film or stickers you purchase, the principle will be the same. We also have several targeted video tutorials which you will find by clicking here

Glass Preparation (the crucial task)

Glass preparation before applying window film.

Make a slip solution using a few drops of washing up liquid mixed with water in a spray bottle and toughroughly clean the glass. Use a glass scraper to remove specks of paint.

Film Cutting

Unless your film is already cut to size, and if the film has a paper liner with a metric grid, measure your glass at the top and bottom, and left and right and mark and cut your film. You can also cut the film bigger than required and trim the film once applied to the glass.

Film Application

A. Throughroughly wet the glass with the slip solution.

B. Place the film face down an a flat surface and expose a small amount of the adhesive or cling side.

C.  Spray the adhesive or cling side liberally with the slip solution as you peel off the protective liner.

D. Slip the adhesive or cling side of the film on the glass butting one edge and the top against the window frame or rubber gasket (double glazed unit).

 

Squeegee Technique

A. Liberally wet the face of the film with the solution to act as a lubricant fro your squeegee or felt edged tool.

B-C. Squeeze out the solution from under the film using a firm and even pressure, starting from the top and working your way down and accross the film.

Film Trimming

Run a credit card and a retractable knife blade down the edge of the glass to trim any excess film. The thickness of the card will allow for a small gap to help any remaining solution to be squeezed out. Once trimming is complete go over the film once more to squeeze out all the solution. 

Final Checks

1. Make sure that all the solution has been squeezed out.

2. Wipe the film and any remaining solution with paper towel.

3. Inspect the film on both sides of the glass to check for any trapped solution or air bubbles.

How To Remove Window Film

Removing window film can be a very easy process, but it all depends on how long the film has been on the glass, and the type of film that was used.

Here's a video tutorial which shows the basic principal.

Typically, films are either made using PVC or PET.

PVC is  a soft material which can be peeled off the glass with a glass scraper. Any glue residue can be removed with soapy water and a scraper.

PET is a brittle material widely used for solar and safety film, and might be made of layers of mettalised material. To remove this type of film, use a wide glass scraper and lubricate with soapy water to remove the film.

As a rule, old PET film are more difficult to remove than PVC films.

For large panes, it is best to first score the film into strips with a sharp knife. This means that you can tackle it in more manageable pieces.

 

How To Care For Your window film After Installation

Window film is very easy to look after and you won't need any special products to clean it with. In fact, soapy water, similar to the solution you used to apply the film is the best cleaning product. 

Do's

Wait for at least 3 weeks before first cleaning your film

Use soapy water

Use a soft cloth or paper towel

Use a rubber edged squeegee (unless the film is printed or has cut outs) in good condition

Don'ts

Do not use abrasive products

Do not use Amonia based products

Do not use defective or damaged squeegees

Caring for printed films, or films with cut-outs

Extra care must be taken when cleaning printed films, or films which have been cut out and have exposed edges. Gently clean with a soft cloth only, and take particular care around the cut areas. Do not rub too hard or use a squeegee as it could damage the print or your cut film.

Caring for static cling films & stickers

Take extra care around the edges and clean your sticker or film from the centre out. Do not use a squeegee.

Our static cling frosted window film is a non adhesive vinyl material which is applied directly to glass to enhance privacy, to add security, or as an affordable alternative to net curtains. Once applied, the film will give you 24 hour privacy from either side of the glass, with very little loss of natural light. Unlike self adhesive frosted window film, static cling film has no glue but instead relies on a static charge to cling to glass. The main benefit is that the film is easy to apply, and even easier to remove. This type of product is therefore widely used in rented properties like flats and offices, or on building sites. The other benefit of the static privacy window film is that it also hides valuable items from sight for added safety, and can mask an unsightly view just as well.

Static cling frosted window film can be applied to any smooth non textured glass surface, including double glazed units, and can be used anywhere in a home or office, including on a bathroom window as it is resistant to condensation. It can be used on the bottom half of a bay window for example, or to cover a whole glass door. It is ideal for rented properties or short term office lettings. Frosted privacy film can also be used on a building site to cover large windows and hide tools and equipment, or on your front door to hide post whilst on holidays.

Unlike the self adhesive version, static cling film has a clear protective liner which when removed activates the static effect whilst protecting the cling side. Because there is no metric grid printed on the back of the static cling frost, we would recommend ordering this product cut to size, especially if you have a large amount of panes to cover.

The static frosted film gives your windows and doors an opaque finish similar to acid etched glass. The frosted glass effect is emphasised by a slight graininess of the film, which makes it more realistic. It is neutral in colour but will give clear glass a grey white translucent colouring. If you're not sure whether this is the right product for you, feel free to ask for a free sample first.

We have also been told by dog owners that privacy frosted film can help prevent your dog from barking at passers by walking past your window, or at squirrels on your garden. Just apply a strip of frost film up to the height of your dog when standing on it's hind legs. You'll be amazed at the results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Once removed, can the static cling window film be re-used?

    Yes it can. If you are planning to re-use the film, make sure you keep the clear liner and re-apply the film to it for further use at a later stage.

    Very easy, and very quick. To apply the film, all you'll need are a few basic tools including a spray bottle, and we even throw in a small application tool with your order for free.
