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.

Frosted Window Film Ramsbottom
Frosted windows were the original privacy windows. But, unlike in the past when you would have had to purchase actual etched glass, frosted windows can now be achieved through the application of frosted privacy window films. Frosted window films are the cost-effective way for Ramsbottom homeowners to retain their privacy. They also provide an elegant touch to the bathroom or the conservatory and are ideal for windows that open into furnished basements.
Our customers employ frosted window films in a variety of ways, mostly for privacy. But not exclusively. Here are some of the uses Ramsbottom homeowners have found for frosted window films:
In the bathroom – As we alluded to earlier, the bathroom is a very common place to find frosted window films. They add a touch of elegance and allow a soft light to pass through while ensuring privacy.
On the sidelights – The sidelights next to the front door are another popular place to install frosted window film in Ramsbottom.
On garage door windows – Sometimes a homeowner decides after installing an overhead garage door with window panels that they’d prefer those panels to be opaque. For safety’s sake.
On garden sheds – Storage sheds are commonly stocked with tools. Clear windows in a shed can expose your tools to potential theft. Frosted window films can help keep them secure.
In the conservatory – Conservatories are an ideal location for frosted window films. They allow you to retain privacy while stabilizing the environment.

- Cost-effectiveness. Our window films are a more cost-effective investment than traditional window solutions. After installation, they require no maintenance and can last for several years.
- Enhanced visibility and privacy. Closing your curtains provides shade and privacy, but keeps you from seeing outside. With our UV-resistant window films, people outside cannot see the interior of your space, while you can still look through your window without any problem.
- Better insulation. Our window solutions add insulation to your room, keeping out the heat during summer and keeping it in during winter, so you can save on energy costs.
- Increased privacy, mirrored window film comes in different shades. The more mirrored effect the less people can see in.
- Increased aesthetic appeal.
One-Way Mirrored Window Film
Security Window Film Ramsbottom
Even with CCTV cameras and other security solutions these days, some parts of your home or commercial property are still vulnerable. Your windows, for instance, are susceptible to breakage.
Reinforce the glass panels of your windows with security window films from Prestige Window Tints & Film. We provide durable films and expert installation for homes and business properties in Ramsbottom.
Prestige Window Tints & Film can help you decide whether security window film is right for you, Call 0800 612 4811 to discuss.
Made from long-lasting and robust polyester materials, our security window films are:
1. More resistant to damage and vandalism
Our films have a tensile strength that allows them to absorb shock effectively. They can keep the glass of the window from shattering too easily. This can distract or deter burglars from breaking into your property.
Security window films also discourage vandalism in shops. If your windows are full of graffiti, you can remove the damaged film and have us reapply a new laminate. This is a far less expensive and time-consuming option than installing new windowpanes every time you need to deal with defaced windows.
2. An extra layer of protection against natural disasters
Glass is prone to breakage when met with force or in high temperatures. During a fire or other natural disaster, windows fitted with security films won’t shatter right away. Your family or employees can easily evacuate the property without the risk of stepping on glass shards scattered on the floor.

- These days solar window films are not a luxury, they are a necessity. With tenuous energy resources becoming more expensive, window films are your way to ensure the money you spend on energy isn’t wasted. Solar window film also helps preserve carpeting, furniture, artwork, and other items that are often bleached of colour and value by damaging UV light from the sun. But the benefits of solar window film for Ramsbottom residents don’t stop there.

How Window Film Can Help Your Ramsbottom Conservatory
Your conservatory is a good way to extend floor space in your home. With further improvements, you can turn it into an area that is cosy and functional for your family and guests, no matter the season. One upgrade is to apply films on your conservatory windows. These laminates offer:
1. Shield against harsh sunlight
Prolonged exposure to UV rays can be harmful to your eyes and skin. It can also cause wood, fabrics and paint to fade easily. Window films can block the harsh sunlight and protect you and your interior space.
2. Less glare, optimal natural light
Unlike curtains and blinds, window films can reduce the sun’s glare while still letting an optimal amount of natural light into your conservatory. This can help you maintain a well-lit, vibrant space.
3. Improved privacy
As an outdoor structure, a conservatory benefits from the improved privacy that window films offer. Our films keep passers from staring into your windows, without making you lose visibility to the outside world.
4. Extra layer of insulation
Window films act as an extra layer of insulation for your conservatory. They can help control the interior temperature, making the space cosy for family and guests no matter what the season.
