Can window film be installed on low-e windows?

Whether window film should be used on Low E windows or Low-Emissivity and how much you will benefit depends on three factors:  Type of Low E surface used on glass, location of Low E surface in the window system, the desired amount of heat gain reduction, heat loss reduction, or other film benefits. Please make sure to ask your dealer if your Low-E  windows can have film installed.

Can window film prevent fading?

It can reduce the impact of the sun’s UV rays or spectrum up to 99%, which is a cause of fading. No window film can eliminate fading. It can, however, offer maximum protection from fading due to solar ultraviolet light and solar heat.

How long does window film last?

The effective life of window film will vary by the type of film, type of glass, window construction, compass orientation of glass, and in which part of the world the building is located. All quality window films for residential and commercial use are warranted by the film manufacturers.

Will window film lead to glass breaking?

Glass breaks when stressed.  Thermal stress, from absorption of solar radiation, is the one which film may affect. The window film manufacturers have recommended film-to-glass tables for use by factory-trained dealer installers. If a consumer is ever in doubt, he/she should request a copy of such guidelines.
