not all solar control films are recommended for all glass types
Carmeleon assumes no risk or liability for glass breakage whatsoever!
All films are recommended, preferably silver. Caution – please determine whether the glass has a history of breakage and if so, silver is a must.
Some Perspex or acrylic have had film applied successfully. However, each product has different expansion and contraction and once film has been applied, the film can cause ridges to form on large sheets. No guarantees offered.
All films are recommended for this application. A pressure sensitive film must be used. Dry adhesive films will not bond properly to polycarbonate.
All silver reflective films in 20%, 35%, and 50% densities are recommended. Tinted glass functions by absorbing the heat and holding it in the glass. Coloured film (reflective and non-reflective) also absorb heat. This combination can produce more heat build-up than the glass can tolerate and could cause the glass to crack.
Because the glass has been edged, carved or contains wire, it has already been weakened. Not recommended for film application unless owner accepts risks. No guarantees offered.
All safety films can be applied to armour plate or tempered glass.
All silver films are recommended. Please note the darker the window is tinted, the lighter the silver film is recommended.
All colour film is acceptible for application to this glazing type.
Only silver reflective window films are recommended to this glazing type. This type of glass builds up heat between two panes. Coloured films absorb more heat than the silver reflective films.
The combination of coloured films and shatterproof or solar shield glass can produce more heat build-up than the glass can tolerate and could cause the glass to crack. If the silver reflective is not appealing then a 35% black non reflective is an alternative to opt for.
