Surface damage, scratches, paint spills or, worse still, breakages to glass is one of the most common snags reported on a new development or refurbishment. Often windows will be remaining during a refurbishment project or, if they are brand new, they are installed at an early stage when a lot of work will still be happening on site. Repair or replacement costs can be high, so protecting these valuable assets will save you money in the long term.
Preventing damage to glass can be solved with one simple product. We recommend you use Proguard window protection film. This high-quality film is specially designed for windows and glass thanks to the low tack adhesive and UV resistant properties. It can be left in place for up to 30 days, and unlike some lower quality products on the market, won’t leave any residue on removal.
The window film is supplied on easy to handle rolls, so you only need to use the necessary amount, then any remaining product can be stored ready to use on your next project. Additionally, you can use an applicator to make applying the film even easier.
TOP TIP #1
Our top tip for when using Proguard window film is to only use the product on the glass and not to overlay it on to the window frames. Whilst overlapping the film won’t cause any damage to the frames, it can create air bubbles which can lead to the film peeling away and reduce its effectiveness. Therefore, to ensure adequate protection to applied to window frames we would always highly recommend using a low tack tape. Proguard’s ultra-low tack PVC tape is the perfect product for the job. It can also be used on door frames or any other sensitive surface as, like the protection film, it leaves no residue on removal.
TOP TIP #2
Proguard window film would be ideal for window manufacturers to use before dispatching glass or during transit as this is when dmaage can frequently occur.
