Mr & Mrs Brown, Holbrook, Derby.

“Not long after moving into our new house and deciding to use the conservatory as a playroom for our two year old daughter we discovered the need to protect her from harmful UV rays. We had also purchased a new leather sofa that we knew would be susceptible to sun damage. After much research we decided on the window film approach. Dave came to visit us and explain how the different films work and the benefits that each gave. After the visit we decided straight away to use WF Glazing Protection. We normally get at least three quotations for any work on the house, but because of the way that Dave presented the 3M Night Vision25 for the roof and 3M Prestige70 for the vertical windows along with the feedback he had from previous customers we decided that this was the right company to do business with. The installation was challenging due to the shape of the roof but the team were extremely professional and carried out the work without any issues. They were quick and efficient and left the place spotless. Great Job! We are now looking forward to the summer knowing that our daughter is safe to play and the room will be a much more comfortable temperature.” Click Here To Contact Us To See How We Can Help Improve Your Property

John & Carolyn, NEWARK, Notts – 3M Prestige70

“The windows at the rear of our property are all south facing and as a consequence we found ourselves drawing the curtains during the day to keep the heat out and stop fading. We were in the process of considering installing air-conditioning when we got a leaflet from WF Glazing Protection advertising window films, through our letterbox. We had thought about window films and dismissed them as not a very good idea due to stories of them peeling off and the silver mirrored effect of the 70’s came to mind. However, the leaflet talked of new technology and advances in manufacturing window film so we decided to contact WF Glazing Protection for advice and a free quotation. We discussed the problems we were experiencing with Dave and decided to have the 3M™ Prestige70 solar control film applied to all of the windows on the rear of our property. Since the film has been applied we have experienced a significant reduction in heat gain so the house is much cooler with no loss of light and no fading. We have been very happy with the installation, level of service and cost of the window film and would recommend it to anyone experiencing problems like ours. It’s also much cheaper and more environmentally friendly than air conditioning." As you can see from the photo you cannot tell there is any film on the windows.

Specialist window film saves the modesty of residents…

The Litmus Building, Nottingham The brand new, award winning premises in the heart of Nottingham required a privacy solution to the windows of the tenants’ swimming pool. The architects at Lace Market Properties stipulated that the effect must be graduated to keep the perception of clarity from inside of the pool. Working together to meet their requirements WF Glazing Protection specified and sourced 3M™ Fasara™ Illumina Decorative Window Film. A graduating film from white frost to clear that has an anti-bacterial coating to resist finger marks and a 5 year warranty against peeling. The project was completed on time with minimum disruption on behalf of main contractor Laing O’Rourke. 3M & Fasara are trademarks of the 3M Company Click Here To Contact Us To See How We Can Help Improve Your Property
