Get to know solar window films
A solar window film is a thin, transparent layer of material applied to a window's glass surface. It blocks some of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays, visible light and infrared (IR) radiation. It reduces furniture and flooring fading and makes your home more comfortable by reducing glare and hot spots.
Solar window films are available in various tints ranging from VLT 2% to VLT 88%, so you can choose the amount of light blocking you want. You can also buy a solar film for windows coated with a metal oxide film, which grants additional UV protection, privacy and energy savings.

Steps to installing solar films for windows:
Clean your windows: Start by thoroughly cleaning your windows until clean and ready for adhesives. Remove dust, dirt or streaks that may cause the film to not stick properly.
Measure and cut: Measure the dimensions of the window and cut the solar film to the required size. Leave an extra inch on all sides in case you need to adjust the film.
Prepare the surface: Mist the window’s surface with the water and dish soap mixture. This will allow you to position the film without it sticking immediately.
Apply the film: Peel off the adhesive protection of the solar film for windows. Gently place the sticky side on the wet window surface.
Smooth out the bubbles: Use the squeegee to push out any air bubbles from under the film. Start from the centre and work your way to the edges. Be careful not to scratch the film!
Trim excess film: Once the film is in place and all the bubbles are gone, use a cutter to trim the excess at the edges so the film fits perfectly.
Final adjustments: Give the film one final smooth-over with the squeegee to ensure proper adhesion and remove any remaining water or air bubbles.
