Tinted window film has for long been the chosen solar control option for commercial buildings, due to its smart appearance and exceptional heat and glare reduction properties. This film is often specified to reduce the amount of visible light and glare which can affect staff working on computers, and cause headaches and loss of productivity. This film can also be used in a residential setting and is ideal for conservatories where excess heat and glare can be an issue.
As a rule, we recommend the darker films for south facing windows, where the sun is harsher. East facing windows will be exposed in the morning, when the sun is low, and west facing windows in the afternoon when the sun is high, but brighter.
North facing windows shouldn't be too affected by the sun.
The clue is in the name. The film's tint reduces excess sunlight by making the glass darker, just like a pair of sunglasses would.
Our Neutral films come with a 10 year warranty, but they will last much longer.
The film is made of several layers of very thin materials, including a metalised costing to reduce excess heat. This is what makes residential and commercial films different to car tints, as car tints are usually just dyed films.
Neutral film is made of the following layers:
1. "Hard" scratch resistant layer, for durability and ease of maintenance during window cleaning
2. High optical quality polyester, with anti IR metal particles deposit
3. Bonding adhesive
4. High optical quality polyester
5. Pressure Sensitive adhesive, glass polymerization within 15 days
6. Protection release liner, disposable after installation
The film is a self adhesive material applied using a soapy water solution and a squeegee, making bubbles a thing of the past.

Absolutely. 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.
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.
