Dual-pane Windows?

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?
Asked by: steve
With high heat rejection, definitely would only use this on the outside of a dual pane window - saw the same concerns expressed and it makes sense that it could build heat/pressure inside the closed space between the panes.

Is this reflective from the outside?

I'm not allowed to install reflective materials on the window, so I am wondering if this is reflective when installed.
Asked by: JT72
Yes it is reflective - not totally mirror-like, but it is quite reflective - that's the price you pay for 70% heat rejection.

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.

Asked by: Tina
No, this can not be applied on the outside of the glass.

36 in. x 78 in. Titanium Energy Saving Peel and Cling Window Film is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 54.

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 TO BE USED ON SEALED WINDOWS Online FAQ says Q: Do I apply the film on the inside or outside of the window? A: Apply Heat Control films to the INSIDE only. The instructions with the product says to apply it to the outside on sealed dual pane windows. Because of the conflicting information I called the help desk and was told that the static cling could not be used on the exterior as it would not stand up to the elements and couldn't be used on the inside because I have sealed dual pane windows and it could possibly crack the windows from heat build up. Product should state "NOT TO BE USED ON SEALED WINDOWS" could have saved myself a lot of time and energy.

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 2 out of 5 by from Confusing video and paper instructions I purchased item #10366483-50146358 and I installed it on four narrow windows on the southern exposure of my house. There are instructions wrapped around the film, one of which states if I am installing on a double pane insulated glass (that's me) to place the product on the exterior side of the glass. The instructions also stated to remove the liner from the film by putting scotch tape back to back on a corner and pull off the liner. I tried many times and there was no separation. I then looked at a Gila.com video on how to install Heat Control film and it shows the tape on the corners too and being installed on interior side. I called Gila customer service and advised that the liner was not coming off and the nice lady stated, "oh, your product doesn't have any liner, it is static cling, just cut and spray both surfaces and install. She also stated that it is to be installed on the inside surface. Duh, that is not in writing or video anywhere. I did get the windows covered but found it challenging to get some of the corners to stick, and the plastic film is thick so a new razor blade is important. Today I finished my windows with the adhesive version of the Heat Control film and I think it was easier to install even though it did have a film liner to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far, very good! We have the type of storm door with full length window or screen. We can't use the screen, however, because of neighborhood (tom)cats which drive our (indoor spayed female) cat into a frenzy when they invade her territory. The door faces west; the accumulated heat was oppressive, and this product provided the perfect solution. It provides UV protection and privacy without distorting our view outside. Both my husband and I have checked at different times of day and are pleased with how much the accumulated heat has been reduced--especially during a recent heat wave. This does require two people to install if applying to a large area and take care that hair or fibers don't cling to the surface placed against the glass because they will be visible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from product works but need time an patience to apply Product works to keep out UVA rays but if you DO NOT have time and patience then this product is not for you. It took about 45 minutes to apply to one side of our patio window. The product is easy to work with and is thick for a film. The hard part is getting the bubbles out, no creases and getting it smooth. That is where the patience comes in. You need to use the Gila application solution first, directly on the window, before applying the film but use sparingly under the film or you will have more bubbles to remove...I started at the top and worked down. When using the squeegee work from top to bottom and use small strokes. Once you get the film or part of the film down you need to use the solution over the film before you squeegee. When you get to some bubbles that won't seem to move spray solution and then use slow very small strokes and the bubbles will move. If there are bubbles on the edges you might have to lift the edge and squeegee and then use your fingers to smooth them. Don't be afraid to use the solution over the film to smooth it out. If you don't the bubbles won't move well and you could rip the film. Don't bother to buy the Window Film Application Kit by Gila as the cutter doesn't work well....your better off just buying the solution and using your own utility knife and saving $4.00. We still had to use the utility knife so we wasted the money. However, the product DOES NOT come with the plastic squeegee. I think the product is a little expensive but it is more economical than having it professionally done.
