Can this film be place on the outside of window?

Asked by Chinadoll February 24, 2021

Answer

The S8MC is intended for the interior side of the window.

Asked by Jamie February 1, 2021
1
Answer

The security film will absorb impact, and if the glass breaks, it will hold the pieces together so that it is harder to puncture through. However, the glass can still crack with a strong enough impact. Note that S8MC is intended for inside.

This stuff is awful. Not at all pliable, which makes it so difficult to work with. The Gila brand is far superior, but unfortunately no longer comes in clear. I wouldn’t recommend this to my worst enemy.

Came with supplies and instructions. Not the easiest to install w/o bubbles but works well.
by Jesse
I do not recommend
I cannot attest to how well the film works, just the installation. I read the instructions several times, watched the videos, and bought the extra installation kit. It's not that hard to put up, but I would dare say practically impossible to get it crystal clear. Residue forms very quickly between the window and the glass and once it's there you can never get it out. I tried to install on a sliding glass door. I tried three times, tearing off each of the previous ones and using a new sheet. I did get better with each attempt, but even the last one was no where near crystal clear. I squeegied for hours but new water bubbles seemed to form out of nowhere. And by the next morning new water pockets had formed and could not be squeegied out because the edges had dried. I'm an avid do it yourselfer, and I don't like to admit defeat, but I think this one is best left to the pros. I was so irritated by the time I was done for all the hours and money I wasted, it just isn't worth it.

The product looks like it would work (I didn't break my window to test). However, due to the thickness of the plastic, it is a bit inflexible and therefore difficult to install at the corners. But overall installation was straightforward and it looks good installed.
