Window film is a self-adhesive polyester film that is designed to be applied to glass. You may purchase Window Film for any of a wide range of purposes, such as:

Saving energy

There has never been a greater emphasis than there is today on reducing energy use as much as possible – not only for reasons of environmental friendliness and social responsibility, but also to save money. Solar control films can be instrumental in lowering the need for air conditioning or heating within a space.

Filtering ultraviolet (UV) rays

Window film like that offered by Stockfilms can block the passage through glass of up to 99% of UV rays. You may therefore buy window film to act as a ‘sunscreen’, protecting your skin from the harm that high levels of sun exposure can cause. UV protection film can also help to slow down the fading of furnishings.

Reducing glare

Whether you are in a building or behind the wheel of a car, glare can be extremely annoying, while also preventing you from concentrating on any task you may be trying to perform. We sell a series of glare reduction films here at Stockfilms that can cut down on glare, in much the same way as sunglasses.

Improving safety and security

Safety and security films don’t only strengthen glass against the risk of breakage in the event of attempted intrusion or vandalism, but also help to boost the safety of the glass if it does break. Such window film helps to hold together dangerous shards of glass, which greatly minimises the likelihood of injury to any occupants of the building.

Maximising privacy

We supply various window films here at Stockfilms that are intended to maximise privacy. You may request a translucent privacy screening film, for instance, that provides two-way privacy but still enables a good level of natural light to pass through the glass. One-way privacy film is also popular among customers that wish to prevent bystanders from easily looking into a property from the outside.

Enhancing appearance

The likes of reflective, tinted and coloured window films may all be used at least partially for aesthetic reasons, in conjunction with other perks such as solar control. Various shades are available to enable a specifier or end user to achieve precisely the look that they desire for the windows of a domestic or commercial building or even a vehicle.

While there are many potential answers to the question "What is window film used for?", the above are some of the most common. Don’t hesitate to contact the Stockfilms team today, such as by calling 020 8441 0449 or completing and submitting our straightforward online form, to learn more about the window films we can supply to match your most demanding requirements.
