Window film is a thin material, usually made of polyester, in multiple layers, and treated with reflective coatings. Window films reduce heat from the sun, reduce glare, increase privacy, retain heat during winter and protect against UV rays.
Window films are the secret weapon against unwanted side effects of the sun. The window film contains metallics and dyes to reduce the effects of the sun and improve privacy during daylight hours.
Please visit our types of window film page. Most films we offer will include photos, a specification sheet and a description of what the film does but firstly, you need to identify what is your biggest issue?
Is your biggest issue solar heat gain?
you have problems with glare?
Do you require a film to insulate?
Are you wanting to reduce fade?
Do you want complete privacy or just daytime privacy?
Do you want to stop UV rays?
If the bubbles are very small and only noticeable up close, this is perfectly normal, although we try our best to squeegee out all the water under the window film during installation, it is impossible to get all the water out. The rest of the water under the window film will evaporate through the semi-permeable window film within 2-3 weeks after installation.
A small gap of 1-2mm between the window film and window edge is left. This is done to ensure the best fit possible. The window film can be cut right to the edge of the window on customer request although we don’t not recommend this.
There are many window film installers in the UK that will install external window film. We however do not. External window films are considerably more expensive to supply and install. They need great weather conditions to install e.g. It can’t be too sunny, can’t be raining, can’t be too windy. Furthermore, weather conditions don’t get hot enough to cause thermal stress glass breakage in the UK as opposed to far hotter countries such as the USA & Australia.
Unless you get a clear window film then yes all window films will make your room darker. This is the trade off for reducing the effects of the sun. Window films usually come with a number after their name such as Silver 20, the 20 represents the percentage of light transmitted through the window film. A standard window is around 70%. The darker the window film the better it performs. Please visit our range of window films page to see what various window films look like from the inside.
You can clean your window film with warm soapy water and a microfiber cloth. Dry the window after cleaning with a dry microfiber cloth. Do not touch the window film until 3 weeks after installation.
One way mirror window film provides daylight hours privacy. The reflective mirrored effect will appear on the side of the film that is exposed to a higher light level. Therefore, during daylight hours, this will be the exterior face of the film as (unless there are bright lights on inside the premises) this is the side of the film that is exposed to the greater level of light.
No, frosted window film provides complete privacy both day and night whilst still letting a lot of light in.
Yes mirrored window films can be seen through at night from the outside, as the light level drops outside and lights are turned on within a house. This is when blinds/ curtains are needed for privacy.
The cost of window film varies greatly from £4-£8 per square foot of glass depending on the type of film you choose and the difficulty of installation. If an installation is at height it makes it more difficult therefore more expensive. If a window is particularly large it is more expensive. Window film prices vary greatly, visit our types of window film page for a price range on each window film.
Window film applied to conservatory roof glass works fantastic. Conservatories get very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. A strong solar film can reduce temperatures by 5-10 degrees in summer and increase temperatures in winter by 1-3 degrees.
Yes, window films are fantastic at reducing heat from the sun, but also retain heat from the inside during winter. A medium strength window film is usually all that is needed to achieve the results customers desire.
Yes, other than a frosted window film or blackout window film, they are perfectly clear to see through from the inside.
For complete day and night privacy we suggest frosted window film and for daytime privacy there are numerous films for this. Check out our range of window films.
Please contact us with measurements of windows and the problems you want to solve. Please check out our range of window films. You can pick from there or if you have a particular window film in mind then let us know. Once you have settled on a few window films we will send a quote.
No, not always. For large jobs we will do this. For smaller jobs we will just request measurements of the glass and the type of window film you are interested in.
This depends on the problems you want to solve. For solar & heat problems we offer a mirrored or non mirrored solar film in differing percentages. For privacy we offer mirrored, non mirrored, neutral and frosted window films. For UV rays all window films block out almost 99% of UV rays.
The windows are cleaned thoroughly. A water with lubricant is sprayed on the window, the window film is placed on the window and with a squeegee press on the window film to activate the adhesion. The window film is then trimmed and dried.
Please ensure that we have clear access to your windows. This includes moving any desks away from the glass as well as clearing all window sills. Our window film fitters will bring dustsheets to cover any items near to the window, but if you can give clear access, your installation will go smoothly.
Window films now last upwards of 10 years, the quality of window film is getting better each and every year. I have personally fit window film on my house 10+ years ago and it still looks the same as the day it was fit.
No, as we cannot ensure the quality of the window film.

Privacy Window Film
Inside Looking Out
Outside Looking In
Privacy window films from Prestige Window Tints start providing benefits as soon as they are installed. Those benefits include:
- Enhanced Security – Thieves who prey on Darwen homeowners usually “case” a residence before they decide whether it is worth breaking into. With privacy window films in place, they’ll have no way to see inside. Likewise, if you are a business owner with lots of expensive equipment in your ground floor shop or office, privacy window films can prevent someone from sizing you up from the street.
- Enhanced Privacy – It’s right in the name but it’s worth repeating that privacy window films will enable you and your family to have a private life. You won’t have to worry about a drone with a camera peering in your windows or someone watching you from outside while you nap on the couch. This enhanced privacy extends to businesses as well where female employees don’t have to worry about being leered at from outside.
- Greater Energy Efficiency – On sunny afternoons light streaming in from outside can cause interior temperatures to spike, putting enormous strain on your HVAC system. This is true for both homes and businesses. Privacy window films from PR Solar cause UV light to bounce off, preventing your interior from becoming an oven and saving you money on your air conditioning bill.

For areas of your home or office where a combination of complete privacy and plenty of natural light is desired, our frosted window film is the most cost-effective solution.

Security Window Film Darwen
Your windows are prone to damage. The fragility of glass makes your property vulnerable to criminal activities, natural disasters, and accidents. Reinforcing your windows and glass doors with high-performance security film improves their structural integrity.
Prestige Window Tints is a professional supplier and installer of window films. We’ve extended our services to residential and commercial properties in Darwen to cater to your security needs. Our films are made with high-quality materials that are durable and long-lasting.
Prestige Window Tints can help you decide whether security window film is right for you, Call 0800 612 4811 to discuss.
Security film is made of polyester materials and it comes in varying thickness and opaqueness levels. This film has an adhesive coating that makes it easy to bond with different glass types, including toughened, annealed, and laminated glass. Once bonded with the window or door, the security film acts as a protective layer that prevents easy breakage. Security film has shock absorbency properties that distribute pressure throughout the glass. Moreover, its durability prevents it from tearing which gives it the ability to keep shattered glass in place.

How Window Film Can Help Your Darwen Conservatory
Aside from making your conservatory more comfortable, our solar window film protects it from harmful UV rays. Prolonged exposure to excessive light can damage your flooring, furniture, and furnishings.
- Sunlight has a natural bleaching effect that causes fading and discolouration to occur on wood, fabrics, and paint.
- The heat radiating from the sun’s rays causes leather to crack and it compromises wood’s structural integrity. Frequent temperature changes cause these materials to expand and contract which accelerate their depreciation process.
- The same heat that ruins furniture makes the interior of your conservatory uncomfortable, especially during summer.
All of these decrease your conservatory’s value. Although there are blinds made specifically for conservatories, they completely block out the sun and the view. Our conservatory window film acts like blinds without defeating the purpose of your glass ceiling and walls.
- Our conservatory window film prevents 99 per cent of harmful UV rays from damaging your interiors.
- It reduces the sun’s glare by 75 per cent while still giving you plenty of natural light.
- Our solar window film keeps 82 per cent of the heat from entering the space.
- In the winter, the film retains approximately 33 per cent of your internal heat.
