Sometimes, you may not contact a window film specialist like Stockfilms with the specific intention of purchasing such a product for long-term, permanent installation. Instead, you may be in need of an emergency or temporary arrangement, and it is window films for precisely these purposes that you can purchase from our ‘glazier section’.
But what forms do these window films take, how do they work and in what specific circumstances may you have them fitted at the property for which you are responsible?
You can have faith in our emergency glazing film
Our emergency glazing film is, in many ways, exactly what it sounds like; a heavy-duty film that is only used temporarily while awaiting the removal or replacement of damaged glass.
We’ve probably all found ourselves, from time to time, walking past a shop, office, school or hospital where the glass in one or more of the windows has evidently been broken, judging by the fact that the affected windows have been boarded up. It’s hardly aesthetically appealing, so it shouldn’t be a great surprise that the window film industry has come up with this elegant alternative.
As the ‘emergency’ part of its name indicates, this type of window film is only applied to a window once the glass has been broken. It serves the purpose of keeping the glass safe and preventing it from cracking further until the glass is finally removed from the frame and replaced.
This window film is easy to use and cost-effective in public places like those cited above, and can even be fitted with no specialist training or tools – although of course, great care should always be taken in any situation where broken glass is present.
What about when you are undertaking building or restoration work?
Well, in that case, you are likely to appreciate the thin polyester and low-tac Temporary Protection film that we can supply to protect glass against dirt or scratching when such sensitive work is being undertaken. You may also use this film for the protection of glass panels during handling, transportation and installation.
This temporary protection film is clear, so it won’t hinder visibility through the glass. Purchase this product, and you can be sure of the window on which the film is installed being kept perfectly clean and unmarked throughout the building or restoration work.
Are you on the lookout for window film that will give you much-needed peace of mind during emergencies or in other circumstances where some form of temporary protection may be required for your glass? If so, we would be pleased to talk to you about your requirements, and present you with a free A4 sample of these or any of our other products, when you contact the Stockfilms team.
