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 and saloon windows are fitted with one piece of tint, skilfully heat shrunk to shape in 98% of cars; but in the odd 2% the seam is virtually invisible.
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 the 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, without leaving any residue or adhesive if done correctly, but consider this; it may in fact add value.
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, 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 assess extra time and 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. Window films reflect more light from the vehicle surroundings so if your windows are slightly marked, the films will show them up more. There are cutting compounds available from motor accessory shops to remove them.
9. What can I keep my windows clean with?
Any glass cleaner as long as it doesn't contain ammonia and especially avoid acidic products such as vinegar.
10. Do you offer a guarantee with your work?
We guarantee the film for as long as you own your vehicle or for 10 years in home and business installations against 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 anyway.
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. The main reason is ultra-violet rays. Other factors include visible light, heat, natural ageing, 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. Regardless, 99% of U.V will be eliminated. 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?
We believe 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 reduce the heat load of your air conditioner, thus reducing your electricity bills, and making workplaces more productive.
14. How long does the tinting last?
Our installations are backed by the manufacturer's factory warranty. Vehicle film has a lifetime guarantee.
15. How do security films work?
Security films work in the same way as conventional window films, except they are much thicker. When glass without film is broken it has no support and can fall completely out. This is a major fault as far as security and safety. When any window film is applied, it bonds to windows and prevents it from separating easily. Depending upon the severity of the problem, window film comes in various thicknesses. Window security films can either eliminate entry or considerably slow intruders down so police response from alarms can work. Without window films, an intruder can break and enter through a window, grab a computer and be out the window in 15-seconds. Security film can be purchased clear or with the added benefits of heat and visible light reductions, just as conventional films.
