Installation features of anti-burglary film
The anti-burglary protective film should be installed from the inside and cover the glass surface as much as possible. Please make sure that the gaps between the frame and the edges of the film are minimal.
In some special cases, the film can be installed under window glazing beads. To do this, you need to disassemble the window.
It is easy to do using your own resources if you have PVC windows. A window company or wooden window specialists should be invited to disassemble wooden windows. A film installed under window glazing beads is more resistant to external influences. Nevertheless, this process is quite troublesome and is done in special cases and at extra charge only.
- Unlike other glass films, physical efforts are required to install this type of film. It is necessary to press the film strongly and remove the mounting solution carefully.
- A harder installation tool and a less concentrated solution should be used during the installation.
