Window Film FAQ's
WHAT IS NON-PVC & PHTHALATE-FREE WINDOW FILM?
The majority of window films in the market today are made from poly-vinyl chloride, or PVC as it is commonly called, which greatly impacts the environment. PVC releases Dioxin, which is linked to numerous health concerns including classification as a carcinogen by the Environment Protection Agency.
Our film is made from polyolefin and does not contain phthalates, the plastic stiffening agents found in PVC products, which are said to be the source of the Dioxin. As an added benefit, our packaging is made from a minimum of 40% recycled cardboard and the packaging is fully recyclable.
HOW EASY IS IT TO APPLY?
It's very easy! All you need is a tape measure, some sharp scissors and a clean flat surface. Cut the film to size, then peel off the backing paper. Spray water on the film to activate the adhesive and position or reposition the film as needed on the window while the film is wet. Step-by-step instructions are provided with each roll.
WHAT KIND OF WINDOWS IS IT SUITABLE FOR?
All windows, providing it is glass and the surface is smooth and clean. Other uses include mirrors, glass table tops, French doors, sliding doors, and shower doors.
CAN I SEE OUT AND WHAT CAN YOU SEE FROM THE OUTSIDE?
The film allows light in but blocks the view to the outside, giving the appearance of frosted glass. When looking into a film covered window from the outside, only diffused shapes can be seen.
IS IT EASY TO CLEAN?
Yes, using a damp cloth. Please avoid any abrasive cleaning liquids or materials.
WHAT SIZES ARE AVAILABLE?
Our standard sheet size is 100 x 120cms (1 x 1.25 m's) or 40 x 50 inches. We also have several designs available in large 44 x 84 inches, slightly more than 1 x 2 meters. If your window is larger than this and you wish to cover the entire pieces of glass, we recommend the use of a professional wallpaper hanger to apply multiple sheets side by side.
We can also create custom sizes. We are happy to give you a quote if you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the size you need.
Our patterns are ‘all over’ so you can use them horizontally or vertically to get the most area coverage.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR BATHROOMS AND KITCHENS?
It is not affected by condensation, but we do not recommend it to be used where it will be subject to intense heat, i.e. behind a gas range, or in the direct line of water spray.
IS IT EASY TO REMOVE?
Yes, however, it is not repositionable or reusable. Normally the film can be peeled away after separating a corner from the glass. A blow dryer can be used to warm the film and loosen the adhesive if necessary. When removed it will not damage the glass or leave any residue.
HOW DURABLE IS IT?
It has a minimum of 3 years durability.
CAN YOU SEND ME SOME SAMPLES TO TEST IN MY WINDOWS?
Yes, we have sample sets available for purchase. This will enable you to try the film out on your windows at home.
WHERE IS THE FILM MADE?
The film is designed in the UK by Emma Jeffs and produced in the USA for 10 Roof Cottage, LLC, based in Florida. The film is printed, warehoused, and shipped from the West Coast of Florida.
