If you are not particular about what design or style of decorative window film is used on your windows and only have a few windows/doors/sliding patio doors to cover, then this is the place for you! You won't believe the savings!
|Make Sure You Check Out Our Resource Area!
We have created a resource area to help you with all of your decorating and remodeling needs - be it interior decorating - window treatments - furniture - flooring - carpeting - and more!
Scissors, Tape Measure, Razor Knife, Ruler, Plastic Card Squeegee, Spray Bottle, and Paper Towel.
- Clean the areas to which the film is to be applied, removing all traces of dirt, grime, grease, etc.
- Carefully measure the height and width of the glass surface. Allow +/- 3/4" extra material on each side of the film and cut the film to size
- Create your own wetting solution by adding a few drops (like a very short squeeze) of very mild detergent (baby shampoo or dish detergent like "Joy") into a 32" spray bottle filled with water.
- Lay the cut to size decorative film on a clean flat surface with the release liner up, or have someone hold the piece to be applied for you. Remove the release liner and spray the now exposed adhesive surface thoroughly with the wetting solution.
Apply a generous amount of the wetting solution to the glass. The wetting solution prevents the film from sticking to the surface immediately, thereby allowing you more time in which to properly position the film.
- Place the now wet film onto the clean glass surface. Wet the face of the film to be squeegeed. Use the plastic card squeegee and squeegee from the center out towards the edges to remove any air bubbles and wetting solution. Double check that the film is flat and smooth with no remaining air bubbles and water .
- If any bubbles are not removed after Step 4, then squeegee them out towards the closest edge.
- Trim the excess film from the edges of the surface. It is ideal to cut in one continuous movement, using the ruler and razor knife. Use the paper towels for cleaning the glass surface and for the absorption of excess wetting solution around the edges.
- The film may take a few days to dry in order for it to completely adhere to the glass surface.
- The surface to which the film will be applied should be very clean, free of dirt, dust particles and silicone. Make sure there are no dry spots on the film prior to placing it onto the glass.
- Take care that when removing the release liner the film does not roll over onto itself. It will stick together and is difficult to pull apart. Wet the film as the liner is removed!
Tip to remove liner:
To separate the liner from the film take two pieces of scotch tape and stick them opposite each other at one corner…then pull these two pieces of tape apart and the liner will separate from the film. The adhesive surface will now be exposed. Wet this adhesive surface. Do not let the film fall upon itself as it will stick if not wet and it will be hard to separate!
What are SOLYX® films?
SOLYX ® Decorative Films come in different patterns and shades, and are easily removed and replaced to update the appearance at a later time. Now any flat glass surface can be turned into a work of art, be it an office, restaurant, den, bathroom or child's room. Frosted films diffuse light without appreciably cutting down the ambient light. As a result, any existing window can be converted to privacy glass in a number of attractive patterns. See About SOLYX Films
How are SOLYX® films installed?
All SOLYX ® Decorative Films have a permanent acrylic adhesive system protected by a removable release liner which must be removed prior to installation. Films are installed using a water and soap based solution. See Installation Instructions
Where and why are SOLYX® installed?
SOLYX ® Decorative Films are ideally suited for applications that require day or night privacy without sacrificing natural light levels in both commercial and residential applications. See Applications page.
Commercial applications are found in banks, restaurants, health clubs, hotel foyers, conference rooms and office partitioning. Commercial buildings are dramatically increasing the use of internal glass walls as partitioning. This brings natural light into offices creating greater work productivity, as well as the illusion of more space while offering privacy.
Residential applications include solariums, bathrooms, entry doors and sidelights, etc..
Why SOLYX® film?
Architects and designers have accepted the finished product enthusiastically. Decorative film is no longer seen as a problem-solving product; instead it has become an integral part of the design and construction processes. Many new building projects are specifying SOLYX ® Decorative film patterns. The film's theme normally continues throughout the office area and sometimes is personalized with a corporate logo or graphic.
Can SOLYX® films be removed?
Yes. Unlike other decorative glass processes, SOLYX ® Decorative Films can be removed if desired. This of course is a huge advantage and most landlords do not object to their tenants' installation of film when they find out the product can be removed.
To remove SOLYX films simply peel away the film from one corner and pull the film from the glass. Should any adhesive remain on the glass it can easily be removed with a spray of soapy water and a single edge razor blade.
In addition, the cost of installing SOLYX ® Decorative Films on existing glass is low in comparison to other processes.
