Make light work of installing window film & graphics

We have assembled a range of tools to facilitate the window film and graphics application process, whether you're installing safety, frosted, privacy or tinted window film, stickers and decals.

Typically and for most jobs, you will require the following:

  1. A glass scraper to prepare the glass prior to installation.

  2. An application tool or squeegee. 

  3. A sharp retractable knife to trim any excess material after application.

  4. A spray bottle with a fine mist setting. The "solution" referred to in our instructions is simply a few drops of washing up liquid or baby soap, mixed with water.

What tools would I need for a small window film installation project?

Our mini tool kit is ideal for small installation jobs, and the only other item you will need is a spray bottle like the ones used to spray plants. Alternatively, recycle a spray bottle which contained cleaning liquid for example, but make sure you rinse it well before filling it with the soapy water solution required to apply your window film or decals.

I am covering large windows. Which tools are more suitable?

For large panes we would recommend a wide tool like our wide blue felt edge squeegee. Alternatively, you could just use a regular household squeegee. However, make sure it is in good condition so that it doesn't damage the film in the process. 

Is there a different technique for safety and security film?

These types of film are much thicker than frosted or tinted film and as such you will need to use a stronger squeegee with a thick rubber edge. The technique is the same but more pressure is required to ensure most of the water is squeezed out from under the film.
