FAQ

1. Can I open my car windows straight away after installation?

We recommend that you allow 48 hours before opening windows. This is to allow the film to dry and gives the adhesive time to cure.

2. Does the film affect the rear window defroster of my car?

No, the film does not affect the element.

3. Does the tint bubble up after time?

No, we use only use the highest quality films and fit them professionally. The adhesives are specially designed to withstand extreme temperatures. Bubbles appear from poorer quality film adhesives breaking down.

4. Do you fit the film to the rear window of my car in one piece?

Yes, all rear hatch & saloon windows are fitted with one piece of tint, skillfully heat shrunk to shape.

5. I’ve seen lots of tinted vehicles close up with creases and bubbles everywhere, will my windows look like that?

No, your windows will look perfect for as long as you own your vehicle.

6. When I come to sell my vehicle, can the film be removed at all?

Yes, all of our films can be removed cleanly after many years.

7. Do my vehicle windows have to be clean upon arrival?

No, not particularly. But, we do need to know if you think your vehicle has been tinted before, or you’ve tried to tint it yourself, possibly leaving transparent adhesive on the windows which then can incur additional costs to remove and clean ready for your new installation. Worst-case scenario, we would need to view your vehicle first to access extra time & labour required.

8. Now my vehicle is tinted, I’ve noticed a few scratches on the outside of the glass that I haven’t noticed before, where have they come from?

On clear glass you wouldn’t notice existing glass scratches. Windowfilms reflect more light from the vehicle surroundings so if your windows are slightly marked, the films will show them up more.

9. What can I keep my windows clean with?

Any glass cleaner as long as it doesn’t contain ammonia.

10. Do you offer a guarantee with your work?

Yes, we guarantee the film for as long as you own your vehicle or for 10 years in home and business installations against any material defect.

11. Can I tint my windscreen?

No, we do not fit films to any vehicle windscreens unless there is a medical exemption. Sun strips can be applied to the top of your windscreen as long as they do not obstruct your vision in any way.

12. Will window film help in preventing fading?

Yes. Window film blocks out ultra violet rays, visible light and heat. It virtually eliminates all fading. There are many different factors involved in fading. The main reason is ultra-violet rays. Other factors include visible light, heat, natural aging, interior lighting and more. Because of all these factors no one can technically guarantee “no fading.” But a quality window film will stop 99% of ultra-violet rays and a large portion of visible light and heat depending upon which film you choose. But regardless, 99% of U.V. will be eliminated. But after tinting many homes, businesses and vehicles, we have had no complaints about fading of furnishings. Window film is the only way to accomplish this and still retain visibility through your windows.

13. Will window film help with air conditioning bills?

Yes. Window film is the fastest payback of any building product you can put in a house or building, providing you have windows. Window film can cut out up to two thirds of the heat load of your air conditioner, thus cutting down on the run time, the amount of heat that has to be overcome, reduces utility bills and adds years to the life of your air conditioner.
