Blackout Window Film

Our adhesive blackout window film comes in either solid black or white and can be used very effectively to completely obscure a glazed area so that no light can go through, and the view is completely obscured both looking in or out. Our static-cling blackout film is a privacy film which is very easy to apply, and can be removed in seconds and re-used. All our black out window films come with a gloss finish, and can be applied to any glazed area like windows or doors, as long as the glass is smooth and not textured. Our films can be purchased off the roll by the metre or in the case of the adhesive films cut to size to your exact measurements.

How do you blackout a window?

The self adhesive black blackout film or white blackout window film are both suitable. To create a 100% dark room with no light bleed you will need to ensure that the film is applied as close to the edges of the glass as possible, and in most cases you will need to add a bead of black or white silicone sealant around the edges of the film for a perfect seal. For double glazed units, please make sure you read the products specifications for glass compatibility information and data.

What is static-cling window film?

The static-cling film comes in black or white and is more suited to temporary uses. The non adhesive material is ideal to obscure the view, or for enhanced privacy and security, day and night. It doesn't cut 100% of daylight but will dramatically reduce it. Use on your front door as a privacy window film when going away on holiday to hide the pile of mail for example. It is very easy to apply in minutes, removable in seconds with no mess or glue residues, and can even be re-used if you keep the paper backing.

How is blackout window film applied?

The process is the same for both types of films, by using a soapy water solution and a squeegee, making bubbles a thing of the past. Please click here to view our installation tutorials.

Can I remove the film at a later stage?

Absolutely. For the static cling film, just simply peel the film off the glass. For the adhesive film you will need a spray bottle and some soapy water, and as wide a glass scraper as you can get. Click here to view our range of window film installation and removal tools.

How do I clean blackout window film?

Just clean with soapy water and a squeegee, that's all. Do not use anything abrasive on the film or it will scratch it. Wait for 4 weeks after installation before you clean the film.

How long will the film last?

The adhesive blackout film is very resilient, durable and will last for many years. It is resistant to condensation and can therefore be used in a bathroom or kitchen. It comes with a 10 year warranty.
