cost energy saving solution gives the benefits of double glazing.
The film is fixed to the window frame using double sided tape.
This traps an insulating layer of air between the glass and the
film which reduces
heat flow and stops condensation with the same effect as double
Some types of glazing film stick directly onto the glass with no
insulating air layer and they are effective in summer when bright
sunlight is a problem but they dont prevent condensation on single
glazed windows in winter because the film is at the same temperature
as the glass..
- Reduces heat
flow and saves money on heating bills.
- Stops condensation
which rots the frames and increases the rate of heat flow onto

- Also effective
on external doors with glazed panels.
