Graffiti guard is a clear film that can be applied to any flat, smooth surface. It is a protective film that ensures that the coated surface remains scratch free and easily cleanable. Even spray paint and chemicals are easily removed. Some of the best surfaces to protect are high traffic areas, such as glass entries (like casino lobby entrances), bathroom stalls, mirrors, tabletops, and stainless steel elevators. One of the best things about this film is the low tack glue that allows for easy removal and reinstallation after damage has been inflicted or extended use.
Most graffiti guard is clear in color, but thicknesses range between 4 and 10mil. 4mil is the most widely used thickness due to pricing and ease of application. The topcoat of this film is the same on every thickness and they will all eventually become damaged in high traffic areas and areas prone to vandalism.
We always precut the film we’ll use during installation within one inch of the size of the glass to be covered, which means we’ll need exact measurements before we starting cutting. We can give you a worksheet to complete or we can send one of our team members to your location as part of our $50 in-house consultation.
Precutting the film helps us do a clean, quality job. Once on-site, we’ll also clean the interior of the windows and remove any debris. If you have architectural glass, some dirt will be present due to the glazing style of the glass.
The glass and the film are both sprayed with a solution composed of water, soap, and alcohol. Once the film has been sprayed, it is placed on the glass and adjusted for fit. Excess solution is squeegeed out, we trim the film if necessary, and squeegee one more time to ensure that we’ve gotten all of the excess solution out. It will take about 30 days for the solution between the film and glass to dissipate completely.
Our one year warranty includes edge of film failure of any kind when it’s due to installation error or defects in the film. The warranty does not cover scratches from daily use or damage inflicted directly to the surface of the film. Once our one year warranty expires, the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty goes into effect. For more information, please see the manufacturer’s warranty. Warranties are non-transferable.
