Types of Window Film

There are many types of window film, each with their own specialist use. Window film manufacturers such as Coolkote, 3M and Johnson Window Film produce films which combine the characteristics of various coatings to produce the ideal window film for any window. This guide will help you identify the type of window film that you need.

Solar Control Window Film

Solar heat gain through windows is dramatically reduced with the installation of solar control window film. This is commonly used as conservatory window film, reducing heat and glare. Solar reflective window films are available for use on both conservatory glass and polycarbonate roofs. Solar control film is also used on office windows where it is particularly cost effective in reducing energy costs for air conditioning systems.


Visit our window film directory for details of solar control window film installers in your area and DIY window film suppliers.

Decorative Window Film

Decorative window film for commercial buildings may incorporate a company logo or other forms of window film graphics. This can be either an opaque window film of frosted glass design or a  window film which includes a colour logo. Common uses include manifestation window film, drawing attention to glass panels, preventing people from walking in to them, and custom designed window films which may for example direct visitors towards the entrance to a building.

Privacy Window Film, Reflective Window Film & Frosted Glass

Privacy glass window film is used in both commercial and residential buildings. A frosted glass appearance is achieved by using an opaque window film offering full-time privacy. A daytime only privacy window film such as a one way reflective window film or a tinted window film may be more appropriate in some situations.

UV Protection Window Film

Damage caused by sunlight can be greatly reduced through the use of UV protection window film. Conservatory window film incorporating a UV filter will help to cut fading of fabric and other materials in a sunroom. Heat and light reduction levels achieved will depend on the appearance of the window film used. For advice on which window film you should choose, contact the suppliers and installers of UV protection window film in our directory.

Security Window Film

Coating office and shop windows with security window film helps to prevent intruders gaining access to your premises, holding together a smashed window even after numerous blows. Security window film with privacy film characteristics may be used, reducing the visibility of valuable items, to prevent an attempted break-in. The installers of security window film in our directory offer advice on the best film to use for your requirements.

Safety Window Film

Toughened glass or laminated glass can be produced by adding safety window film to your existing glazing to meet Building Regulations and increase safety, creating a shatterproof window which holds together if it is broken.
