Window films are a high-quality, beneficial, simple, yet dramatic way to transform any space. As the digital printing industry becomes more environmentally conscious, the LINTEC eco-friendly window films offer solutions never before seen in our industry.
So, you’re considering adding a WOW factor to a space, but you aren’t sure which product to try or which one is the best solution for your needs. At LexJet, we know you have many questions, so we’ve answered 10 of the most popular consumer questions about window films to help guide your decision.
If the film is used for privacy, does light still come through?
One of the great features of the LINTEC recycled window films is that they are optically clear and offer maximum clarity. These window films reduce the transparency of glass but still allow sunlight, creating a natural and comfortable environment. They can be designed to look any way you like, so you can apply a frosting effect to your graphic to create the level of privacy you desire.
Will the film fade over time if exposed to sunlight?
Any fading depends on the environment. If you apply the film where there will be constant sunlight in a generally hot climate, then the film will see a lot more UV light than other locations, which will start to fade over time. For these locations, you may want to consider a removable film that you can change when you need to refresh the graphics.
Is the removable film easy to remove if I want a change the design?
The films are removable, and how easily may depend on the glass the film was adhered to. You should not add the film to unstable or old glass that is pitted, as this can make removal difficult.
How long do the films last?
When installed under the recommended conditions, the window graphics will be incredibly durable and long-lasting. These eco-friendly films made using recycled materials have the same quality and longevity as traditional films. With UV blocking, the films have a five-year warranty mounted indoors, in virtually any condition, while standard films have a warranty of one year, depending on the environment.
Can I add the film to any glass?
For the best long-lasting results, it is recommended that the films be installed on clean, stable glass that is not too old and cracked or pitted and that you follow the installation guidelines.
Which window film should I buy?
There are several factors to consider when choosing a window film. Are you looking for a short-term (up to one year) or long-term (up to five years) solution? How large of a window or space are you planning to cover? Will you be installing the window film yourself or hiring professional installers? Whatever you choose, we offer various solutions ideal for displays in high-traffic areas that may be susceptible to physical contact. To determine the best film for your needs, reach out to us at 800-4-LexJet and we’ll work with you to find the right solution.
Installation is easy, but just how easy depends on your comfort level. If you’re a DIYer, most projects will be pretty simple when planned accordingly. With large surfaces, it is recommended that you hire professional installers for an easier installation process. Permanent adhesives can be removed by qualified installers.
Here are some supplies LINTEC recommends for installation:
- Application solution (in spray container, properly mixed)
- Edge guide tool
- Trimming knife
- Pressure-sensitive tape
- Razor scraper
- Paper towel (a lint-free towel is best)
Can the window films get scratched?
The films are great for high-traffic areas and are scratch-resistant. They are an excellent solution for high-traffic office spaces, schools, or any location that needs durable graphics.
How are the LINTEC films eco-friendly?
These high-quality films are optically clear, made from 80% recycled PET materials, manufactured with 40% less energy, and offer excellent clarity, as well as dimensional stability.
