Dual-pane Windows?

This question is from 36 in. x 78 in. Titanium Energy Saving Peel and Cling Window Film

March 15, 2016
Is this safe to use on dual-pane windows? I'm reading that tint can shatter dual-pane windows. Is this applyable on the outside of the window with the reflective side still facing out so it doesn't trap heat between the glass panes?

Q: Is Gila Window Film safe for dual-pane windows?
A: All Gila Window Films are safe for dual pane windows if used correctly. Most can be applied to the inside of dual pane windows with the exception of Glare Control and Privacy Control Black (outside only).
Q: Can I apply film to dual pane / dual pane low-e windows?
A: Be sure to read instructions before applying a given film to dual pane windows. Dual pane windows are windows composed of two panes of glass separated by an air space and a perimeter spacing bar that also seals the edges against moisture intrusion into the air space. Film installation can be done on the room-side surface of dual pane windows provided the proper films are selected. Certain films can cause the inner pane to get too hot and possibly damage the weather seals or even break the glass.Some dual pane windows, such as used in some motor homes, are made of tempered glass. Usually the outer pane of tempered dual pane windows is also tinted. Tempered glass cannot be broken from solar heat absorption, no matter what film is installed on them. However, care still must be taken to select the proper film because of the potential for premature seal failure because an excessively absorptive film is used which could cases over heating of the seals and excessive stress through expansion cycling. It may be necessary to contact a member of the Eastman technical support team to obtain clarification on the best films for such windows. Dual pane Low-E and Dual pane tinted windows can safely have glare control films applied to the outside surface. Low-E coatings are applied to one of the inside surfaces of the glazing system, so its performance (in reducing wintertime heat loss) is not affected. Read Less

It's much easier to get to my skylights from the roof. If I apply this to the outside glass, will it hold up to weather.

36 in. x 78 in. Titanium Energy Saving Peel and Cling Window Film is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Curls up and doesn't stick Bought the installation kit (spray, etc) and followed the directions as printed on the back --> peeled off the window after 10 minutes. Tried a 2nd time after going on line and following the YouTube directions from the company (only difference was adding a hairdryer to take the curl out and using a scraper in addition to the squeegee to really make sure the window is clean). Still didn't work. Curling and coming off at the top and the bottom. Will need to try something else.

Purchased for a single pane West-facing window in an apartment - needed to be non-permanent due to the fact that it is a rental unit. The film performs very well - appears to live up to the 70% heat rejection specification. It is very expensive, but it does what it says it will do. Installation is just like regular film - a few drops of soap in a water sprayer works well - just soak up both window and film thoroughly - dripping wet, and install when window is in the shade and as cool outside as possible - this avoids bubbles. Plenty of soapy water spray on both sides of film makes re-positioning it and squeegeeing any bubbles out easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product I purchased the Gila Heat Control Window Film at the suggest of one of the Home Depot Associates. I was told of the ease of applying the film. Well it was easy to apply, however, the film refuses to stick on my windows. I have purchased products from Gila before and did not have a problem like this. I was told you did not have to peel the tint and is was reusable. After three days the film continues to roll up on the corners. I followed all the instructions, but it just refuses to stick. I'm sure the film does everything it says, however, it must stay on the window for it to be effective. With price tag of $40.00,plus additional for spray kit, I thought it would be easier to apply with the same performance of the peel off film which sticks to everything when mounting. Chances are I will have to purchase another type of window tinting as I am very dissatisfied and cannot recommend this at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good product Ugh, what a waste of time and money!! The boxes for the adhesive product were faded and a little dog-eared in the display, so I picked this static cling version instead because the boxes looked newer. I also bought the installation kit (spray, squeegee, blade) and followed the instructions exactly (and I'm good at following written instructions). No matter how hard I tried (and I tried a lot), the film WOULD NOT stay adhered to the top edge of the window. In the end, I stopped trying and watched the whole thing unpeel itself and slump to the floor in a heap. A big disappointment! Hopefully the adhesive-based product sticks better. I also wonder if this product was previously used because the backing wasn't really attached to the film although they were rolled up together. If that's the case, then the product apparently isn't reusable either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Check it before you buy it! Very cost effective and energy saving, BUT, pull it out of the box and completely unroll it before you buy it. 3 out of 4 I looked at had imperfections in them that would not clear up in installation. Also installation is not as easy as implied for larger surfaces (sliding glass door). I did it alone (I'm some what experienced), but plan on 2 people and a lot of irritation. Having said all that, the finished product looks great and is a AC saver. Depending on your bank account and DIY ability, something to think about.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it! I did research on what I should buy to install in my apartments long (3) patio windows. They are West facing and being in Texas heat of Spring and Summer I get SEVERAL hours of direct sun into the largest area. By the time I get home from work and lower the AC its been baking in there even with the blinds closed. Directions were easy but you MUST follow them. Clean your windows first...use the solution on the window AND ON THE FILM afterwards to smooth out the bubbles. Definitely helps to have another person to help first put it on up at the top of the window. Also makes it easier if after you have it set, then cut along the tops and sides to remove the excess out of your way. Getting the bubbles out CAN take some time, but by the second window, we had it down pat. I would say the 3 windows measuring 2 FT w and 5 FT L took a couple of hours. And the result for heat control? AMAZING! plus the dimmed light in the room just LOOKS better. Also from the outside it does NOT look like alum foil AT ALL. The windows appear darker than my neighbors but not so much that the complex will even say anything! Now I want to do my bedroom window since it faces West too, but currently using the shades and a black out curtain which definitely helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a temp difference in our house! I purchased this for a large picture window on our East Kitchen wall. Talk about a temperature difference! I had trouble at first with the install because I thought I could wing it and not read directions. After stepping back taking measurements and using the adhesive kit we were up and rolling. I love the fact that it keeps people on the outside from looking inside as well. I plan to purchase more for other windows!
