Frequently Asked Questions: Specialty Film for Residential and Commercial – Solar Gard
What is the warranty on the films? Please view the Solar Gard warranty information here: Warranty Info
How do I choose a shade? The lower the number, the darker the shade. For example, 05% is darker than 15%. The most popular shades for residential and commercial are 20% and 35%.
What color film should I buy? The True Vue series is going to be the most popular for performance and looks. True Vue has a highly reflective, pewter grey appearance on the exterior and a black appearance to the interior. The Clear Frost film will offer privacy, but still allows light in through the glass. White Opaque is a solid white color and the Black Opaque is a solid black color. Sentinel Plus Stainless Steel has a grey-toned look to it with low reflectivity. The Sentinel Plus Silver looks like a mirror and has the most heat rejection, but has a high reflectivity.
What sizes do you carry? In most shades we carry 36", 48", 60" and 72" widths. A normal roll is 100' in length; however, we offer most cut down to 25' increments. The decorative films are offered in 10’ increments.
