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
While you were undoubtedly looking for solutions that enhance your sense of privacy, the great thing about having us install privacy window films at your Stretford property is that they also offer a number of additional benefits.
Your home or Business is More Secure – Those that spend their time peering through windows don’t always do so because they want the latest gossip or to catch you in a compromising situation. The criminals that carry out burglaries will usually thoroughly inspect the interior of a property by looking through to windows, to decide whether the potential reward is worth the risk they are going to take. Privacy window films prevent them from doing this and act as a deterrent. When they are not able to see inside the home or business premises, they will often move on in search of an easier target.
Feel Comfortable At Home – Many only feel comfortable in their own home with drapes installed and frequently drawn. While this does provide additional privacy, it is far from an ideal solution. We believe that privacy window films represent a more well-rounded solution. With them fitted, you can rest safe in the knowledge that nobody can see inside, while at the same time you can still see outside. And if you don’t want to have drapes, you don’t have to!
Your Energy Costs May Drop – Most home and business owners that install privacy window films in Stretford find that their energy bills are reduced. This is because privacy window films block out a large percentage of the solar heat energy that is transferred by the sun, meaning you don’t have to spend extra money on regulating the temperature inside the property.

Frosted window film is a laminate that can be applied on glass windows and doors. Oftentimes, property owners have it installed to improve privacy. But, there are other ways frosted window film is beneficial to your space.
Frosted window film ranges from translucent to opaque. This makes it ideal as a privacy barrier for glass windows, doors, and partitions. Frosted window film is effective in improving your space’s privacy.
Oftentimes, people think of window film as thin and flimsy materials. The laminate’s thinness is not a reflection of its durability. Made with polyethene terephthalate, frosted window film is shock absorbent. It prevents the glass from easily breaking under pressure.
Frosted window film acts as additional insulation for your space. It filters out the sun’s harsh glare during summer while it keeps cold out during winter. This type of laminate is often used to regulate a space’s internal climate. High-quality frosted window film will help you reduce utility expenses.

One-Way Mirrored Window Film
Security Window Film Stretford
The security window films we supply and install are among the very best currently available in Stretford, or anywhere in the UK for that matter. Made to form an extra-strong bond with the glass to which they are applied, our films will help to protect your windows when they are subjected to accidental knocks or purposeful blows from potential intruders. In some cases, the shock-absorbent properties of our film can stop a window from breaking and in cases where a window does break, it will prevent it from shattering. This is a safety feature that will help to protect occupants in the event of a breakage and to deter burglars who may not wish to go to the lengths of forcing an entire windowpane into your property in order to gain entry.
Prestige Window Tints & Film can help you decide whether security window film is right for you, Call 0800 612 4811 to discuss.
If you wanted to make absolutely sure that nobody could break the windows in your home or commercial premises, you could go to the trouble of fitting metal shutters or sturdy iron bars on each window. However, this would be a much more expensive option than our security window film in Stretford and it would leave your property looking more like a prison or industrial warehouse than a home or welcoming business address. Our security film is normally enough to deter would-be intruders and is much easier and cheaper to install than bars or shutters. Furthermore, it still allows you an unobstructed view out of all your windows.
Solar Window Film Stretford
Prestige Window Tints & Film is one of the most trusted suppliers of high-quality solar window films, not only in Stretford but across the UK.
With over 20 years of experience in the window film industry, we have fitted many residential and commercial properties with high-grade window solutions that address the unique needs of their space.
Apart from blocking the sun’s glare and providing shade, solar window films do a lot of good to your property, such as the following:
- Better baby-proofing. Blinds come with choking hazards, especially for homes with small children. By substituting blinds with solar window films, your property becomes more child-friendly.
- Energy saving. Solar window films provide insulation, keeping the room warm during winter and cool during summer, so you can reduce energy spent on heating and cooling.
- UV protection. Excessive and prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays is harmful for your health and your furniture. By filtering out UV rays, window films safely allow natural light into your space.
- Enhanced privacy. Window films allow full visibility from within the property but keep those outside from seeing the interior.
Conservatory Window Films Stretford

Prestige Window Tints & Film has the knowledge and experience to help you decide on the perfect tint film for you and your conservatory. Call now 0800 612 4811 to discuss your options.
