How to purchase Window Film for your Home or Apartment

Here is a quick guide on how to order window film on our website or find a more detailed description below. 

  • Only use our products on tempered Low-E filter glass or non-Low-E filter glass. Click here to learn how to test for Low-E on our blog.

  • For maximum heat rejection, choose 70% transparency. For the most privacy, choose 5% transparency. For a combination of both, choose between those transparency level.

  • Measure the length and width of your windows. Choose which dimension most closely matches our available widths (24”, 36”, 48” or 60”).

  • Choose a standard roll length (82”, 120”, 212") or from our custom length (2” to 180”) options that closely matches your window dimensions. 

  • Add an installation kit to your order if you have never installed before or don’t have the proper tools.

  • Checkout and select your shipping option. Delivery time = shipping time + processing time. Please keep in mind that typical processing time is 2-3 business days but may be completed sooner.


    Step 1: Low-E test.

    The first step in choosing window film for your home or apartment is to check if your windows have a Low-E filter. Our films should not be used on Non-Tempered Low-E glass. However, there is one exception to this rule: If your windows have the Low-E filter, it is safe to use ONLY if the windows are tempered.

    You can read more about what the Low-E filter is and how to test for Low-E here on our blog.


    Step 2: Choosing a transparency level.

    Once you have checked that it is safe to use our film on your windows, the next step is to decide what VLT (Visible Light Transmission), or level of transparency, best suits your needs. Are you looking for privacy? Do you need a high heat rejection but still need a high level of transparency? These are all factors you need to keep in mind while choosing a transparency level.

    Our G-Cling 05 offers the most privacy of all our films. This will be best for customers that would like privacy at night, while still allowing 5% of light to come through throughout the day.

    Our G-Cling 70 works best if you are looking for high heat rejection while also maintaining a high level of visibility. This works best in areas of your home where you get a large amount of sun throughout the day or if you live in an area that is very hot.

    Check out the table below for more information on the Heat Blocking and UV Blocking specifications on the other transparency levels that we offer.


    Step 3: Measure windows and find the corresponding dimensions.

    After selecting which VLT level works best for you, you will need to measure your windows. Once you have the dimensions, the next step is to match those dimensions to our Standard Size Rolls. These include:

    • 24 x 82
    • 24 x 120
    • 24 x 212
    • 36 x 82
    • 48 x 120
    • 48 x 212

    Please note that some sizes are not available in all VLT levels. If the size of your window does not match up with our standard size rolls, there is no need to worry. We also offer a Custom Cut option. For this, all you need to do is select the product listing that matches the VLT level that you want AND the width that you need.


    Step 4: Choose your length and add a tool kit & extra solution if needed.  

    Once you have that selected, choose the custom length from the drop-down menu labeled “Length” and add to cart. We also recommend purchasing a Tool Kit for the best installation experience. It includes all the necessary tools required for proper installation.

    Kit Includes:

    • Spray Bottle
    • Soft Tape Measure
    • Concentrated Solution
    • Towel
    • Rubber Squeegee
    • Cutting Knife
    • Cutting Stick

    This Kit is not included in your purchase. It will be automatically added to your cart. You can adjust the quantity of the tool kit in the cart as needed. One solution packet is included in the Tool Kit. You can also choose additional solution packets if needed.

    Please note that we have a 2-3 business day processing time on all orders. However, some orders will typically ship out sooner depending on our order volume.
