Residential Window Film

Window Film Solutions for Residential Properties


To many residential property or home owners, the benefits of adding film to a window are largely unknown. But did you know that window film has been widely available, as an affordable alternative to window replacement, for the past 30 years?

Advances in residential windows have focused mostly on improving glass design and construction, including heat-absorbent tints and insulation, commonly known as “double-glazing”.

Another option, that is at a fraction of the cost of window replacement, is window film.  Prism have been helping residential customers solve or improve common glass-related issues, with the application of window film, since 2005.

What types of problems can window film solve in your residential dwelling or home?

Heat - Have you ever felt bad when you couldn’t use a room because it’s the sunniest in your house? Reduce the temperature unhealthy rays of the sun from entering inside and create a cost-effective, healthier environment

Solar – Reduce heat from streaming sunlight in the summer and heat loss in the winter while protecting your furniture fabric from fading. Did you know that skin damage and premature aging can be caused by exposure to UV rays? Window film cuts out 90% of rays

Glare - The application of film reduces unwanted heat and glare by 80%, with no major decrease in visible light

Safety - A single square foot of shattered glass produces almost two hundred razor-sharp pieces, leading to potential serious injuries. If children or infants live at your home, it’s strongly recommended you get safety film installed

Security – One of the most common methods of gaining entry into your home is by breaking a window. Security films are created by layers of polyester film bonded by special adhesives. These create an almost invisible safety field around the glass, preventing it from shattering

Conservatories – Does your conservatory become too hot in the summer? Window film is a cost-effective alternative to decreasing the heat and glare of your conservatory.  Lower your heating bills, reduce glare and control excessive heat

One-way mirror – Prevent neighbours or passers-by looking into your property. Provide total privacy with a highly attractive finish which is unsurpassed. Mirror films we supply can be in any of a wide choice of different colours and tints

Once installed, window film has no maintenance costs and is very easy to maintain - simply wipe it with a moist sponge or cloth. Find out more about how window film works and the technology behind it.

Is window film better to use than blinds? Although blinds help in reducing of the sun’s glare, they do not remove the excess heat build up. Plus they’re difficult to clean as they attract dust and insects.

For so many reasons, window film is the affordable choice for all types of glass and polycarbonate roofs.
