That’s why we’re here today to help answer a few FAQs you probably have if you’re considering this type of window treatment. Let’s get started!


Can I apply window film on any surface?

Yes! Window film is a highly adaptable product with unlimited features. It secures your privacy inside and is tested to be a more feasible solution compared to heavy blinds, fabric curtains, and bulky shutters. Depending on the film you choose, you can ensure natural light is still able to pass through, meaning visibility isn’t compromised while you’re protected from harmful UV rays.

Aside from being economical, home and office window tinting using our 3M Window Film is guaranteed to last longer when installed inside as it is not exposed to harsh elements such as rain, sun, wind, and grime. 


What is the best window film to install in damp areas?

Damp zones at home or in the office, such as bathrooms, are smart areas to apply window film. Throughout the year, windows facing north and west are exposed to UV rays, and as such, our reliable window films continue to perform. Whether applied inside or outside, they are able to filter the light while staying durable even in damp areas. 


What will happen if I apply the window film outside?

Balconies and swimming pools apply our 3M Window Film outside as they offer supreme privacy. When you’re swimming, window tints on glass balustrades can reduce the UV rays penetrating your skin. They are attached to glass pool fences and glass balustrades and are guaranteed to last for a long time. Although exposed outside, our 3M Window Film is specifically made for the challenging Australian climate. It is highly durable and UV resistant. Cleaning is a breeze as water mixed with soap can keep it looking brand new.

Luckily, with us, you’ll have neither. 3M Window Film is designed to be installed seamlessly. Professional installers know how to get all of the air bubbles out and ensure a close edge so that you don’t sacrifice visual appeal.


How can I attach large window films to wide windows?

It’s recommended that you work with experts like us when tinting large windows. This is the best way to ensure your windows aren’t marred by sloppy edges and bubbled tint.


What are the other benefits of window film to my home?
