Home Window Tint Installation
Aluminium Window frames with removable rubber seals
Sliding glass doors & other windows manufactured with an internal removable rubber seal can be removed prior to cleaning and installing your window tint. This process is to ensure that your window tint is installed as close to the glass edge as possible, tucking under the window frame. This technique will ensure that there will be no visible gaps between the tint and the surrounding window frame.
note: The rubber seals will need to be in good conditions in order for them to be removed and re fitted after the window tint is applied to the glass. If the seals are hard and brittle, they can easily tear, or become very difficult to re install. In some cases, it will be recommended to have them replaced.
Aluminium Window frames with fixed rubber seals
Sliding glass doors & other windows manufactured with an internal fixed rubber seal can be trimmed, and this is to ensure that your window tint is installed as close to the edge of the window frame as possible. No visible gap will be seen, and your glass will look completely tinted.
However, depending on your window design, some don't come with an internal rubber seal, or have their seal deeper into the window frame, and therefore the tint can only be applied as close to the edge of your window frame as possible. In this case, when your window tint is installed onto clear glass, a very fine thin gap might be visible, however, the gap will not be as noticeable on factory tinted glass.
Timber window frames
Timber window frames can not be trimmed, and therefore the tint can only be applied as close to the edge of the timer as possible. In this case, when the window tint is installed on clear glass, a very fine thin gap might be visible, however, the gap will not be as noticeable on factory tinted glass.
You can choose to have a fully sealed edge of where the glass meets the frame in order to achieve a gap free installation, however, this can not be done until the window tint is fully dry. Please note that if this work is requested, it will be quoted and charged to you accordingly.
Your choice of tint is important
Your choice of window tint will have a direct effect on how visible the gap will be. For example, if you choose a light shade, or grade of tint, the gap will be hardly noticeable, however, if you choose a darker shade of tint, you will more than likely see the fine thin gap all around the window.
