Why window film?

Window film is an attractive, inexpensive and durable window treatment option that’s environmentally friendly.

It’s commonly used to…

  • Reduce energy bills

  • Control temperature

  • Improve safety and security

  • Minimise glare

  • Enhance comfort

  • Block UV radiation

  • Protect furnishings, carpets, etc.

  • Maximise space within a room

  • Create a uniform external façade

  • Increase privacy

  • Provide signage and decoration

These days, you can choose a window film that meets your specific needs. It’s available in a wide range of aesthetic and performance types that suit most requirements and can be applied to any glass surface. The cost of window film compares favourably to double glazing, tinted and reflective glass and shading devices. It can be applied to new windows or retrofit to existing ones, both residentially and commercially.

WFAANZ members are trained to ensure the product is fitted correctly, and WFAANZ window film manufacturers provide a minimum 10 year warranty, and some even offer a lifetime guarantee on residential applications. Visit for more information.
