Switchable Smart Window Film FAQ

Welcome to our Switchable Smart Film FAQ page. Here, you’ll find the answers to the most commonly asked questions about our smart film products. If your question isn’t answered, please contact us.

How much does Switchable Smart Film cost?

As it’s a luxury upgrade for your glazing, Switchable Smart Film is more expensive than standard window film. We price each project on various factors however as a guide it costs between £350 – £500 exclusive per metre square, depending on waste.

We are happy to email you a budget supply & install cost or supply-only price, to get an exact price, please email us with your individual pane sizes so we can calculate wastage.

Will the Switchable Smart Film protect me from UV rays and glare?

Yes – the film will protect you from over 99% of harmful UV rays in the clear and frosted modes, and it will stop approximately 50% of solar glare in the frosted mode. It also makes your glass up to five times stronger.

Can I use Switchable Smart Film to reduce glare and bright light?

Yes – although the film in its off state is translucent and not tinted, it does reduce light and glare. The film reduces the visible light transmission to approximately 7% when you need glare reduction.

What size does Switchable Smart Film come in?

The film is manufactured with a maximum width of 1500mm which you can apply to larger panes by aligning the film side-by-side with a 2mm gap. The joining of the film is not obvious to the naked eye but each film will need a separate bus bar connection.

Can the film be shaped?

Yes – we can shape the film into slanted or round edges, holes or curves.

Can the film be used on doors?

Yes – it can be used on swing, sliding and folding doors. Each piece of film will have two wires attached to it, which can be up to 10 meters long -these will need to be protected when the door is in use with flexi rubber loops or metal conduit.

Is the Switchable Smart Film dimmable?

Yes – With the use of a special transformer, this can be used as a dimmer.

Do you offer blackout glass to stop light?

No, we only offer a tinted colour pane of glass with switchable smart film applied to it though.

How is the Switchable Smart Film powered?

We supply you with a 110v/240v transformer which is connected to the film. This is then connected to an isolated 13 amp fused spur in your home or office. The film can be controlled via a remote which can work up to 10 metres away or a normal wall mounted light switch.

How long will it take to produce the film?

Typically between 2-5 weeks, depending on production demands.

How do I clean it?

The film is cleaned with a soft cloth – we will provide you with full cleaning instructions.

What is the expected lifetime of Switchable Smart Film?

Based on independent testing, the film will continue to perform after 1,000,000 cycles.

What are your payment terms?

We require a 50% deposit to confirm the order and the final 50% a week before the installation or delivery. We will send you an invoice via email to collect the payments.

Will my Switchable Smart Film be under warranty?

Yes – we provide you with a 2 year warranty.

What our customers say...

We contracted ADS to fit a series of different types of window films to our two story office. We could not recommend ADS highly enough. Their service, professionalism and efficiency in fitting was second to none. We are really pleased with the results and the switchable film particularly, is a real talking point.

Top firm, top guys, top product. Very impressed. 5*

Friendly professional service. Made us feel very welcome from start to finish! Our car looks amazing and will certainly make a difference. We would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you again!

A very efficient service with very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Brilliant firm, they have now done 2 of my cars and a fantastic job on my house. Before you speak to anyone about getting your windows done speak to these guys.

I spent ages reviewing different companies to make sure I found the best place to tint my windows and ADS is definitely that!

They have done a superb job on my Ford Focus. Really professional service. The film quality is second to none. I went for the premium film and although it’s perfectly dark on the outside, inside I still have perfect visibility.

I would recommend ADS to anyone. Very impressed.

Fantastic service, professional and knowledgeable staff , nice clean waiting area with free wifi!!! And a lovely mug of coffee .This is the only place we go to have our vehicles window tinting done. So far they have done the tints on 4 of our cars!!

Professional from start to finish – Adam the installer rang to say he was running a little late and kept me informed. When arrived he was polite, professional, clean and tidy – sorry the access to the windows weren’t the easiest. When he left you’d never know he’d been in our offices except the excellent window films and no complaints from the staff – result!

ADS were quick to respond to my initial enquiry and were able to fit my work in between jobs. They kept me informed, met times advised and were professional and courteous.
