Solar window films for solar control

  • Heat & glare control
  • UV control
  • Privacy
  • Easy to apply

Solar window film is the ideal alternative to curtains and blinds. The film is a thin self-adhesive material which is applied directly to your existing panes. It can be ordered in a tinted or reflective finish, and is very efficient in controlling excess sunlight, heat and glare. Unlike other window coverings, window film is clear and see through, allowing you to see out, and is very easy to keep clean.

How does solar window film work?

Tinted Solar Window Films work by making your windows darker and therefore cutting down the heat and glare emanating from the excess sunlight. You would be familiar with tinted windows in cars which work in a similar way. Reflective Solar Films are the most efficient as they combine a tint and a reflective finish making them super efficient heat reduction fims, with the added bonus of daytime privacy. For heat reduction with minimal loss of natural light, then you could consider one of our Window Insulation Films which are virtually clear whilst very efficient at controlling heat gain.

Does solar control window film work on all windows?

Solar window film works on windows, doors, glass conservatory roofs and can be applied to any smooth glass surface. It is suitable for single paned glass, laminated glass and double glazed units. 

How do you install solar window film?

Though it might at first appear to be a difficult task, applying window film in general is very simple, and 99.9% of our customers apply the film themselves. The key is to ensure that the glass is clean and fre from specs of paint or dirt as these will show up under the film. Them it's just a matter of spraying the adhesive side of the film and the glass with a soapy water solution and once the filmis on the glass to squeeze thre water from underneath the film with a squeegee. It is that simple. Please click here to view our installation tutorials.
