Frequently asked questions
Depending on the strength, the sun protection film can lower the room temperature, thus improve the feeling of well-being and reduce the costs of air conditioning units. The stronger the film is, the higher the sun protection will be and the lesser light will come through (similar to sunglasses).
Sun protection film reduces solar radiation and heat, similar to a sunglass. When installed outside, silver sun protection film can mirror and reflect sun radiation directly before the glass. Tinted sun-blocking film will absorb solar radiation. The stronger the sun protection foil, the less radiation will come through.
The durability of a sun protection film depends on indoor and outdoor installation, as well as vertical or horizontal installation. Depending on the type of film, our minimum warranty is between 3 and 10 years.
On single glazing, a sun protection film can be installed on the inside. But with modern double glazing, triple glazing, slanted windows, skylights, overhead glass, safety glass or heat protection glass, sun protection film must be installed as an outside film. Otherwise, different temperatures on the glass could lead to a glass break.
After removing the protective film, spray both window and film with the assembly concentrate/water mixture, then position the sun protection film on the glass and after that, scrape out the moisture again.
In order to remove a sun protection film, heat the foil with a hair-dryer. Then pull the foil from one of its corners. You can pull it longitudinally easily. After the old foil has been removed, spray Ajax window cleaner on the windows in order to remove the residuaries of the adhesive material. The remaining residuaries can also be removed with the help of a shaving razor or a glass scraper after a short time.
