Solar control Window Film


  • Mirrored when looking in but optically clear when looking out during daylight / twilight hours or if internal lights are not on. These films work through the differential in light levels so they can also be used internally
  • 99% UV rejection and up to 93% glare reduction
  • Available in: Silver, Grey/Silver, Neutral Grey or Slate
  • Blockout 2-way films that appear mirrored from the outside but block out the view from the inside are available in Matt Silver or Silver
  • Provides a more neutral appearance than reflective window film, these are often used for architectural and design reasons.
  • 99% UV rejection and up to 80% glare reduction
  • Available in: Bronze or Grey (same colour when viewed from the inside or outside)
  • For use where extreme UV light blocking is required, for example for people with UV sensitive skin conditions, in a museum, medical facility or manufacturing facilities for the photographic, pharmaceutical, scientific or electronics industries. The film can be applied to all sources of light within the room such as windows, fluorescent lighting and even lasers.
  • The film we supply and fit exceeds the standard museum test requirements for low UV transmission and colour distortion and passes the requirements of leading conservation experts who have carried out research on ultra-violet filters.
  • Available in: Amber or Clear
  • Keeps rooms cooler in summer and warmer in winter through increasing the efficiency of your glazing to reduce energy costs all year round
  • Reduces energy loss through glass up to 40%; can reduce the inside temperature by up to 5 °C in summer & retain 94% of radiative heat inside during winter.
  • Payback on your investment in as little as 3 years through reduced energy bills, tax liability and carbon footprint. Government and business organisations can use this film as part of seeking to comply with the Carbon Reduction Commitment scheme and The Carbon Trust policies.
  • Additional benefits, dependant upon the product chosen, are daytime one-way privacy, uniform outside appearance and 99% ultraviolet light (UV) filtering
  • Available in: Grey, Bronze, Silver, High-Mirror, Low-Mirror or Clear
  • Solar control film designed for use on polycarbonates, GRP and plastic substrates; such as conservatory roofs. This is manufactured with a special adhesive to counter the tendency for standard reflective films to bubble up if applied to polycarbonate instead of glass. 
  • 99% UV rejection and up to 89% glare reduction
  • Available in: Silver
  • Used when inside access is not possible or on certain types of glass. These films have a weather-resistant construction with a strong waterproof adhesive and additional UV barriers to help protect the film from degrading.

  • 0% light transmission to provide total two-way privacy 24 hours a day. Can be installed internally or externally and applied for permanent or temporary use.

Safety & Bomb Blast Window Films

  • Designed to make glass safer, both by strengthening it against breakage and helping hold dangerous shards of shattered glass together in situations where breakage does occur. 
  • Schools, hospitals, offices, workplaces and public buildings must comply with Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 by upgrading glazing for safe breakage. Professionally installed window film is a straightforward retro-fit solution that meets the required safety standard. 
  • Safety films are available from 100 microns to 300 microns, as the films increase in microns (thickness) they offer increased protection. We have a large range of safety films that are clear, mirrored or frosted and can be applied externally or internally with or without a physical/ structural support around the frame to further increase the strength of the film. 
  • 100 Micron: Tested and certified to EN 12600 Class 2B2, used by many organisations as a minimum specification for safety film. Often used in schools and offices to meet British Standards (EN 12600 has now replaced BS 6206).
  • 175 or 200 Micron: EN 12600 Class 1B1. A multi-laminate bomb blast protection film widely used by many government agencies and commercial organisations to address the real corporate risk of bomb-blast, or industrial explosion at, or near, their premises. 200 Micron film may also be used with a physical attachment system to provide smash & grab protection, especially useful for a jewellers shop window.
  • 300 Micron: Often used on ground floor windows and other high security areas of buildings considered to be at greater risk. Also provides adequate protection for smash & grab and intruder attacks on ground level windows. Often used as part of an anti-intruder scheme to protect against rioting etc

Privacy Window Film

  • Translucent privacy screening films are used to give two-way privacy with an effect that looks like etched glass or sandblasted glass, both finishes still allow high levels of daylight through the window. The high levels of privacy make this product suitable for bathrooms, medical consultation rooms, offices and to comply with planning permission.
  • We can custom cut this film on a digital plotter to display your logo or unique design.
  • Available in; Frost Vinyl (most popular), Fine Acid Etch White, Fine Acid Etch Bronze, Fine Acid Etch Smoke, Dusted, Offshore Blue, Refreshing Mint, Sparkling Yellow, Romantic Rose, Luxurious Gold, Crystal White, Matt Silver, Dusted Crystal White, Frosted Crystal Gold, Frosted Crystal Rose, Frosted Crystal Blue, Frosted Crystal Mint, Frosted Crystal White, Medium Sandblast, Stipolite Effect, Rice Paper Effect

If you ever need any office or domestic windows tinting this is the company you need to get in touch with. After urgently needing some windows tinted I got in touch with Warren and he managed to juggle things around so he could fit me in as this was an urgent job that needed to be done. Warren's work was excellent and completed in a super quick time which I was very grateful for. Can’t thank Warren enough for what he has done for me and would happily use it again and recommend it for more jobs.

"Glazing films fitted frosted window film to our office windows which were a great alternative to blinds. We even had our logo cut into the design giving our office the sleek, modern look we wanted to achieve. Would highly recommend it."
