Window film is a product that has been growing in popularity at an almost exponential rate in recent years. The uses and benefits of window film are huge, especially in the commercial sector, as films can often be used as an alternative to a regular blind or where a regular blind is simply not an option.
Film can be used to control light levels, control or reduce glare, provide privacy, security and even thermal efficiency to reduce carbon footprint via reduction in heat gain and heat loss. Window film also stops 99% UVA/B and so is ideal for the protection of window display products to prevent colour fade.
Tinted films are available in a variety of colours and tint levels.
Reflective can be supplied in either a single sided mirror which has similar properties as a one way mirror or with double sided reflective.
Our Opaque film offers the privacy of frosted glass without the need of replacing glazed units and can be retro-fitted to almost any glass window. This is very popular for Meeting rooms, toilet windows and NHS sites for treatment rooms.
Blackout film is often used as a cheaper alternative to a blackout blind where there would be no need to open the blind, or where a blind would simply not be feasible; such as vision panels on a Laboratory door.
Security film has many uses, from providing additional security from break-in or escape from high risk facilities or to offer safety from broken glass in the event of window breakage in the event of explosion or accidental damage.
Manifestations are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and are used to make larger areas of glazing "visible" to pedestrians to avoid accidental collisions and injury. Any glazing must satisfy the requirements of building regulations Part M1 or M2 by:
A. They are clearly defined with manifestation on the glass at two levels, 850 to 1000 mm and 1400 to 1600 mm above the floor, contrasting visually with the background seen through the glass (both sides from inside and outside) in all lighting conditions.
B. Manifestation takes the form of a logo or sign at least 150 mm high (repeated on a glazed screen) or a decorative feature such as a broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50 mm high.
C. Glazed entrance doors, where adjacent to, or forming part of, a glazed screen, are clearly differentiated from it by the provision of a high contrast strip at the top and on both sides.
D. Glass entrance doors, where capable of being held open, are protected by guarding to prevent the leading edge constituting a hazard.
