    5 star review  PR Solar have just applied their specialist film to our whole conservatory roof and doors, due to having to work from home because of Covid-19 Makes an amazing difference to the heat temperature and glare reduction in the room.

    5 star review  Friendly reliable staff, fitted the film with efficiency, professionalism, and quality is outstanding. You can really notice a difference to the heat in the conservatory. Whilst light still comes in, the heat has been reduced dramatically so no longer feels like a sauna. We are west open facing meaning sun moves around the side of the windows then above normally trapping so much heat. In 24hrs the difference is amazing! Thanks Paul!

    5 star review  Very professional, Paul explained fully about the products and price, absolutely perfect fit for my windows, I am very happy with the results. We are on street level so everyone can look in when they walk past, the net curtains hid the view and light and harboured dust, it has completely changed our living room and kitchen, to be able to look out and have the light in, from the outside it looks totally natural and people cannot see inside. Would highly recommend, clean fast, superb service.

  • 5 star review  Paul installed window film on our bi-fold doors in our garden room, and kitchen and lounge windows. Having had skin cancer recently, I was concerned about UV and wanted to continue to enjoy our garden room without having anxiety. Skin cancers are becoming increasingly common and PR Solar Window Film is the ideal solution. It also prevents our furnishings fading! I was impressed by the installation - efficient, professional and a fantastic result! Highly recommend this service to all and everyone.

    5 star review  Nice quality finish, from the outside it gives the windows a bit of shine but doesn't look over the top, it gives the appearance of looking at an empty dark room. From the inside - you can't see it! Quick service and no mess. Great, I would recommend PR Solar to anyone wanting privacy film, our new windows now look very stylish.

Solar window film installed on patio doors

Window film or blinds?

Many of our customers ask us whether window film is more effective than blinds. The answer? Absolutely!

With window film, heat will ricochet off the glass, keeping the room at a consistent temperature. Blinds allow heat to come in through the sides, so they are far less effective at maintaining a comfortable temperature. It’s also worth remembering that window film is the significantly cheaper option, too.

Window film are specially designed thin laminate sheets made from a polyester substrate that are coated on one side with a highly scratch-resistant material and on the other with an adhesive layer that binds them to the window surface.

They provide a number of benefits to the property including UV protection from the sun, additional privacy and protection in the event that the windows are broken and shatter.

There are a number of factors in play when it comes to determining how long window film will last. These include the exact type of window film you have installed, the type of glass they’re installed on, the type of window, where it’s located in the home and the conditions in the interior of the home.

There are examples of window film lasting for well over 20 years, but this is by no means the standard lifespan. We guarantee our window film for 10 years.

Good question! In the majority of cases, window film is installed on the interior side of the window. This is to protect it from the outside elements, which are known to accelerate wear and tear and reduce the film’s lifespan. That said, there are window films available that are specially formulated for outdoor application, as it’s not always possible to apply them to a window’s interior facing side.

When applied to windows, whether in a commercial or residential setting, window film will provide a number of different benefits. These include:

  • Regulating indoor temperatures and avoiding sudden spikes or dips
  • Increasing privacy and reducing the likelihood of theft
  • Protecting home furnishings from UV damage by the sun’s rays
  • Making the property a safer place by offering protection from broken glass

You know all about the benefits. They’re talked about everywhere. But what about the downsides to installing window film. Can they damage your windows? If professional grade film is used, such as that produced by PR Solar, the short answer is no. Window film is extremely unlikely to cause damage to glass window panes.

If you require help to determine what the most suitable type of window film would be for your particular windows, our experienced team would be delighted to provide assistance with an onsite consultation.

It’s not possible to apply window film to textured glass, no. The reason for this is that the surface of the glass is not flat, so when the film is installed, it will leave small gaps across the entire surface of the film. Over time, these gaps will cause the window film to release and fall off.

Many of our clients with conservatories wanted to know this before buying! Window film that is manufactured to the highest standards and then professionally installed will prevent the sun’s heat from penetrating the windows and making the interior of your home uncomfortably hot.

They don’t have to be, but they should be. If window film is not installed properly, it can potentially cause damage to your windows. We’ve seen numerous DIY installations and the most common issues include:

  • Thermal heat stress leading to breakage/damage
  • Damaged seals leading to misty or cloudy glass

When PR Solar installs your window film, you can be sure that everything will be done correctly. You won’t have to worry about damage to your glass panes, and you can rest easy knowing you’re going to experience the full range of benefits from your window films.

Window film is largely maintenance-free after installation, other than requiring some light cleaning. When cleaning them, you’ll need to keep the following advice in mind:

  • Avoid abrasive cleaning materials and only use soft cloths or sponges to wipe away dust
  • Dry the surface of the window film quickly using a soft cloth
  • Most standard glass cleaning products should be safe to apply to window film

The non-adhesive side of your window film has a scratch-resistant coating on it that protects it from most damage providing you are careful when cleaning it.

This depends on the exact window film that you choose. There are types of window film available that do block your vision from inside and outside, but most window film, such as the film that PR Solar sells, allows you to sit in your property and look out through your windows.
