There are many varieties of window film. Most of them are applied to the inside surface of a window in a home, building, or vehicle. Scratch resistance is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a window film for a specific use, which is what makes architectural window film a popular choice.    

What Is Architectural Window Film? 

Architectural window film is any type of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) window film that is installed over an existing window’s surface to improve its functionality and/or design. All architectural windows typically consist of the same components—one side of the film has an adhesive that attaches to the glass surface of the window, while the other side features a scratch-resistant coating to safeguard the film.   These window films may be clear, tinted, or decorated with a border or all-over pattern. They’re an excellent tool for improving privacy, aesthetics, and more.  Related Topic: 3 Ways to Refresh Home Exterior for the New Year—for Less!
