Can automotive film be put on a home or building?
No. The glass used in a vehicle is not the same as glass used on a property. There are major differences in how automotive and flat glass films are constructed. Automotive films are meant to absorb energy, that is why the windows get very hot and become heat radiators when a car is parked. As the vehicle drives down the road heat is pulled from the glass through a process known as convection. Buildings on the other hand are stationary and using automotive film could make the glass absorb too much heat, leading to thermal fractures and breakage. Flat glass films purge heat by reflecting energy preventing the energy/heat from being absorbed and actively reducing it.
Can I install window film myself?
Professional installation requires skill and experience. The techniques and proper tools for installation are not found easily in retail stores. We stand behind our professional dealer network and offer comprehensive warranties through the manufacturer for residential flat glass, automotive, and protective film lines.
Is window film installed on the inside or the outside of the glass?
Window film is always applied to the inside of the automotive glass. The outside of the window is used to cut-out the pattern.
Will TWFP Window Film turn purple, peel, or bubble up on my window as time goes by?
Film that turns purple, peels off, or starts bubbling is usually an economy or low-grade window film that has often been installed incorrectly. Over time, the adhesives and dyes in a low-quality film will begin to break down. The Window Film People’s window films are engineered with high quality fade resistant dyes and metallic layers that will not discolour. All TWFP window films come with a comprehensive factory warranty when professionally installed.
Will TWFP Window Films cause a distorted view while looking through a tinted window?
Our professionally installed films do not cause any distortion and are virtually clear beyond the colour or shade of the film. They can cut out up to 95% of annoying glare helping to reduce eyestrain and improve the comfort level in any space. TWFP Window Films are quality control tested at the factory for contamination, distortion, haze, mottle, heat lines and any impressions in the film that would affect the visual aesthetics.
What would the sun protection factor (SPF) be for window film?
Film that allows 1% UV transmission would have an SPF of 100 at 1.5% UV transmission, the SPF would be approximately 66.66 and with a UV transmission of 2%, the SPF would be 50 (Calculation must include full range of UVA and UVB radiation 290-400 nanometres*IWFA education guide). Sun protection factor numbers are officially determined according to established testing protocols. No claims can be made about actual SPF numbers without having these tests performed by a qualified laboratory.
How much solar and UV protection will a solar film provide?
TWFP Window Films solar protection films effectively block 99% of harmful UV rays (near infrared) and reject up to 82% of solar heat gain (far infrared, felt as heat but not visible) depending upon the specific film chosen. TWFP Window Films also reduces glare seen from windows by up to 95%.
How to stop condensation and reduce humidity with window film?
The main causes of condensation on home windows is excess moisture in the air, poor ventilation, poor insulation, poor heating or a combination of all four.
The best way to solve this problem is to fully insulate your home, turn up the heating and fit proper ventilation. One of the best options is to insulate windows with window film insulation as it is quick, cheap and effective.
By using our window film, you will dramatically reduce the amount of heat lost and in turn reduce heating costs. Our films are specially designed to act as an insulator and create an additional layer of insulation almost like double glazing which prevents heat loss through glass windows. The idea is very simple, affordable, yet very effective.
Our window films can be used not just on windows but on doors with glass panels or window frames which are in poor condition which allow drafts in. Once the windows have been covered with our film the room will be noticeably warmer and condensation greatly reduced.
