Need privacy tint for your new 67 plate vehicle?

Don't panic if you forgot to tick the box for privacy tint when you ordered your new 67 plate vehicle. We can retro fit window film, which comes in a choice of 6 shades, as well as complete with a 7 year warranty. As we work closely along sides with the majority of local dealerships we can even arrange for it to be done before you collect your vehicle. 

And whats more our Llumar window film has so much more to offer than factory tinted glass. As it blocks up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB it provides protection (it's authorised by the British Skin Foundation) as well as reducing heat gain to the vehicle dramatically. With a choice of different tint shades, you can choose your preference visually or for what suits your needs, for example, if you have young children/babies in the back of your car you would ideally go for a darker film to keep the heat and glare off them, as well as providing privacy (don't worry though they can still see out perfectly). 

If you would like to enquire further, or to make a booking please feel free to call us on (01473) 272600 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. we also have a booking/quote enquiry form here 

We also have a showroom at our head office on Ransomes Europark, Ipswich where you can view and choose the films, so pop in a see us! 

 

September REGISTRATION...book your tints now!

Have you got a new vehicle arriving in September? Would you like to have professionally installed window tints?

Want to know WHY our window film is BETTER than factory fitted tint? Then look no further....

At the Window Film Centre we have over 20 years experience in professional window film installation, working with retail customers directly, as well as a with a large number of car dealerships. The benefit of having window film retrofitted is that it offers SO much more than factory tinted glass-which is what it say, simply tinted glass. Our high quality window films (Llumar branded) have the British Skin Foundation stamp of approval as they block up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB, so as well as reducing heat they protect drivers and passengers from the damaging sun whilst on the road. There is a range of different films, from the very dark Limo 5% film to the lighter UV films you can choose whats right for you depending on how you use your vehicle (I.e do you have young children, dogs etc in the car and want to significantly reduce heat and glare?) or would you like it darker for privacy (work equipment, tools etc in the back) or simply for style?

With film you are also able to tailor which films you use, so you get the benefits where you need it most, for example, with you children you could fit 5% Limo on the sides cutting as much heat and glare possible (while they can still see out) but then a slightly lighter film on the rear screen, to ensure you can still see perfectly out the back window at night time when reversing etc. Or some customers, simply want the UV protection, so will choose a much lighter film to have applied round the whole vehicle.

Many people don't realise you can also have film fitted to the front passenger and drivers windows....well you can. As long as you stay above the legal limitation (need to let over 75% of light through) you can have our UV film applied, which will add a subtle effect aesthetically to your vehicle, but you will reduce heat gain and get UVA and UVB protection. This is also available for the windscreen, and has had particularly great feedback when driving into the sunshine as will cut heat gain so dramatically. 

So...don't panic if you have missed the boat to have tinted factory glass on your 67 REG, simply give us a call and we can quote for having your glass tinted. We work with most dealerships within East Anglia, so we can lease with them and even arrange for the glass to be filmed before you take delivery of your vehicle at the start of September! Yay!!

Which window film should I chose?

*Above are some images of our Head office on Ransomes Europark in Ipswich, Suffolk. We have one of the only showrooms for window film within the UK, which means our customers can view the film in situ to aid the decision of which film they would like aesthetically as well as performance based. With performance films (solar control, privacy etc) it's very difficult to see what the film will look like once installed from just looking at a sample. Even if you are to hold a sample up against the glass it will look very different once it's been fitted. So having a show room is a great way to see the films before they are installed.   

We are one of the leading window film installers in the UK. As a Authorised Fitment Centre (AFC) for Llumar window films we pride ourselves on our professionalism, with our highly experienced and fully qualified team of fitters. 

What this means for you....our customers? We have 2 main priorities with our window film-automotive and Architectural (buildings)

Automotive includes:

  • Our classic window tinting packages; You can tailor make your package, choosing from a selection of Llumar branded window films. Theres a various different shades of tint, going from the very dark Limo tints up to the clear UV films. So depending on how you use your vehicle, the levels of privacy and heat/glare control there is a film to suit everyones need and taste. We have particular films which we can install to the front passenger and drivers windows as well as the windscreen (staying within the legal limitations). These relatively clear films, they won't offer glare reduction but block up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB which in doing so will reduce heat gain, as well as giving you the ultimate UV protection. Thats why some of our high performance films have been given the seal of approval and are now authorised by the British Skin Foundation
  • Paint Protection Film (PPF); This new generation film provides a high gloss resistant shield for your vehicles paint work. Unlike the film that was on the market 20 years ago, this new state of the art film is custom fit, wrapping around the edges (so you can't see where the film finishes) providing a high gloss, self healing finish. 

Buildings/Architectural Includes:

  • Homes; this can include privacy film, decorative film, or solar control film in rooms that heat up a little too much in the summer months! We have had great results using solar control films on kitchen sky lights, sun rooms, and glass extensions, where the heat and glare is unbearable, but you still want to be able to see out. Generally cheaper than having blinds installed, it stops the heat before it enters the building. Allowing you to enjoy your home comfortably in the summer.
  • Conservatories; Brilliant solar control films, which allow light in whilst dramatically reducing heat and glare, and reducing fade as they have such a high UV blocking. It allows you to enjoy the space, reading or working on a computer screen, whilst enjoying views out to your garden. 
  • Schools; From safety film, to privacy and solar control. We have also fitted some great coloured transparent films in school, which add great effect to class rooms when the sun shines through, casting rainbows open floors and walls! 
  • Offices; Again, great one-way mirrored films give privacy, whilst dramatically reducing heat, as well as glare onto computer screens. We also use decorative films on office partitions etc, or frosted films which give privacy whilst allowing natural light through.
  • Shops; shop front are often very exposed to sunshine and UV, so we can install a brilliant clear film, which will reduce heat, and most importantly stop precious stock from getting sun damaged. 
  • Large scale buildings; We have worked along side John Lewis and Waitrose, BT, MSC and many other large business who have their office space in glass fronted buildings. We are able to specify the right film for purpose. We fit a lot of external film to these larger buildings as the heat and glare control can be so extreme. All of our fitters hold CSCS cards, and IPATH certs so are able to use access towers and lifts etc.

How can window film help you?

There's a whole new generation of window film to what it was 20 years ago. 

Above is two examples of our work. The Mercedes-Benz has been fitted with llumar window film from the b-post back (glass behind the driver). Our window films all Lllumar branded, and is available in a variety of shades, ranging from the very darkest 5% limo through to the lighter films. Our Air 80 is approved by the British skin foundation, so although it's not a dark shade of tint, you will still reduce a lot of the heat in the summer as well as having significant protection from harmful UVA and UVB. We love the way in which window film can totally change the appearance, and feel of a vehicle, providing sunned glare protection with style and ease. 

The other vehicle above is a BMW M2 which we have fitted with new generation Paint Protection Film. This is a brilliant addition to your vehicle as will keep your paint work fresh, without seeing any signs of having film fitted. It's now wrapped around the edges, so you get a seamless, high gloss, clear finish. As an AFC (Authorised Fitment Centre) for Llumar Films, we are a leading professional window film installer, always pushing forward into the latest technology, with the highest levels of experience and training. 

So if you are interested in having either of these films installed on your vehicle, please contact us on (01473) 272600 and speak to one of our friendly team, and find out the best film for your and your needs. 

Why Get Paint Protection Film Fitted?

If you have a vehicle new or old, which you wish to protect the paintwork, from chips, scratches and fade then paint protection film is a brilliant investment. Virtually invisible to the naked eye (the edges are wrapped around the panels meaning you don't see the film edge) it provides a protective and durable layer that is easy to care for (you can wash and wax your vehicle as you normally would).

If you would like to speak to us about having your vehicle fitted with paint protection film then contact us on (01473) 272600 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and one of our specialist window film installers.

Choosing the right window film for your home

Choosing a window film for your home.....

There are so many benefits of having window film installed to your home, from UVA and UVB protection to heat and glare reduction and preventing fade. Popular in garden rooms, and conservatories, sky lights, bi-fold doors etc, window film can eliminate the need for blinds on warm days, dramatically reducing the interior temperature by up to 5 degrees

Garden HQ!

We have just taken delivery of a new picnic bench for our outside area! We met the lovely couple that run Garden HQ (high quality) at the EcoBuild show and loved there ethos and craftsmanship. So when we decided to create a seating area at the front of our office, for staff and customers to particularly enjoy during the summer months we placed an order for their picnic table. 

Its really well built, pre treated and with a 10year guarantee. It looks lush. What a place for morning coffee when the sun is shining! 

 

 

Is your conservatory/garden room TOO hot?

Is your conservatory, garden room or glass extension unbearable in the summer? Do you struggle with excessive heat and glare? Then window film could be for you!

Usually less than a third of the cost of having blinds fitted, its also far easier to keep clean, and you can retain your view. Where as blinds simply trap the heat, window film will stop the heat before it enters, resulting in a significantly reduced summer temperature in your conservatory etc. With high performance films from Llumar, there are options for both glass, polycarbonate roofs and skylights etc, and Llumar films come with a manufacture warranty of up to 15 years!

 

We have had lots of fantastic reviews, where our customers have been delighted at being able to utilise there conservatories and summer rooms again. As well as the additional benefits of reduced glare, significant fade control and high UV blocking.

Window film-what's the difference?

There are many places out there that offer window film-good and bad! You can even buy kits off ebay, however if your wondering what to look for in a window film installer to help you make the right decision here are a few pointers:

  • What film do they use? At the Window Film Centre we use the highest quality film we have found. All of our SunProtect UV+ film made for us by Llumar. This is a high quality film, which shouldn't peel, bubble or fade.

  • What does the film offer? Our films block 99.9% of UV, in doing so even the very clear films will protect the driver and passengers from harmful UV rays as well as reducing summer heat. Llumar film has also become the first and only film to be approved by the British Skin Foundation. We offer 6 different films all with various different levels of heat and glare reduction, and we are always happy to advise you and help you make the right decision for you both ascetically and for lifestyle.

  • What insurance does you fitter hold? At the Window Film Centre we hold full public liability insurance up to £10 million, so you know that your car is in safe hands. 

  • Experience: We work with over 150 different car dealerships within East Anglia and beyond. This ranges across the board from Ford, Vauxhall, Toyota, through to Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover and Porsche. With over 50 years combined experience, our dedicated and highly trained fitters have all been with the company since we were established in 2000. We specialise solely in window film, so you can feel rest assured that your vehicle is being tinted to the highest level. Our high standards have also been recognised by the Consumer Association, which have appointed us as a WHICH Trusted Trader.

  • Mobile services yes or no? Big fat NO! Window film needs to be installed in a very clean and appropriate environment to avoid contamination etc. The other risk with mobile installers is that you may not know where to find them again if you did have a problem. Always research the company.

  • Do they offer after sales service and a warranty? You will be reassured when leaving with your newly tinted vehicle to know that we offer a 7 YEAR WARRANTY, which includes ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE*. SO if there are any issues with your film, or if you have a piece of glass replaced, or accidentally damage the film we will replace this for you FREE of charge*.

Those are just a few key points on how to choose the right company when having window film installed to your vehicle.

Well its all puppy love in the office-meet the latest addition to our growing team at the window film centre- Introducing Rafferty

Top gear crew 'chased out of Argentina'

Having supplied window film for the Top Gear crew to use on their vehicles to prevent stone chips, it appears that maybe more protection was needed when last week they were "pelted with rocks" whilst filming and then refused filming rights. This is due to a rather unfortunate number plate on the Ferrari that Jeremy Clarkson was driving! Oops.

    T Ward Ashton Ipswich
    2014

  • "I would like to say a huge thank you for the window tints you put on our car. We had the whole car fitted with UV protect film, including the windscreen and we were amazed at the results. We have spent the whole of May in Spain where its been 40 degrees plus. We left the car parked in the midday sun whilst we had lunch and when we returned to the vehicle it was only just warm. Where others were having to wait for their cars to cool down before they got back into them we got straight back in. Our friends who we were with couldn't believe the results and now cant wait to book their car in too! Highly recommended."
