Window film can be applied directly to your existing roof panels with very little preparation, apart from a clean. Once applied, window film looks very smart and unlike blinds, which gather dust, it needs very little maintenance.
If your conservatory roof is made of glass, then a straightforward reflective or tinted window film will be suitable.
Applying film to a conservatory roof requires 2 people and in some cases some access equipment like a scaffold tower.
Which polycarbonate roof film should I choose?
Our reflective plastic conservatory roof film has a mirror finish when looking at it from the outside, giving you added privacy. The film is see through so the view above will not be compromised.
Metasol has a frosted finish for added privacy, so you can't see through it.
Extasol is designed for external use and is ideal for commercial buildings where internal access is an issue.
How does reflective film works?
The clue is in the name. The film reflects excess sunlight away from the glass, which makes it super efficient. It also stops 99% of UV light, saving your art pieces and furnishings from fading.
Is there a warranty?
Our films come with a 5 to 8 year warranty, but they will last much longer.
How is window film manufactured?
The key with these films is the type of adhesive used. As polycarbonate is less stable than glass, it tends to shrink and expend with the temperatures. The adhesive is half permanent to prevent the film from cracking due to the expansion and contraction of the plastic.
Polycarbonate roof film is made of the following layers:
1. PVC with anti IR metal particles
2. Half Permanent Adhesive, allowing the "degassing" of the actual surface, and limits the adhesive transfer during removal
3. Protection release liner, disposable after installation
How is window film applied?
The film is a self adhesive material applied using a soapy water solution and a squeegee, making bubbles a thing of the past.

Preparation of the room is key. Make sure you remove as much furniture and furnishings as the film is applied with copious amounts of soapy water. It helps to pre-cut the film to the exact sizes required. Most conservatories have long panes of glass so 2 people is a must, so you will need 2 ladders or trestles and boards.
Can I remove the film at a later stage?
You can but to be honest, it won't be an easy job so if you think you might have to remove the film at a later stage, think twice about applying it in the first place. The key is to not damage the plastic with scrapers and sharp blades.
How do I clean 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 4 weeks after installation before you clean the film.
