How to Install Solar Window Film

Installing solar window film is a lot like installing decorative window film or security film. Solar window films have a professional grade adhesive backing, which is exposed after removing the clear protective release liner. After measuring and cutting to approximate size, installation is completed using a mild soap/water solution and squeegee to remove excess water. Trim the edges to size and finish squeegee-ing out all of the water to complete installation. For detailed instructions visit our how-to install DIY window film page.
