Frequently Asked Questions
Our 3M Safety Film uses a strong 3M adhesive to adhere the film to the glass, and is able to hold the glass together for up to 72 hours even after it breaks, giving you sufficient time to look for a replacement.
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. Hence there is no urgent need to install 3M Safety Film on it unless you require additional anti-spall protection.
For glass surfaces with scratches, we can still install the safety film as the scratches do not affect the integrity of the glass. However, if you observe any cracks or chipped edges on the surface, that means the glass is already under stress. It is thus recommended to have the glass replaced for safety purposes.
Yes, we will need to remove any handles on your shower screen/doors first as the film needs to be applied on a flat glass surface.
The warranty period is for 3 years and covers any peeling and bubbling issues. For the warranty to be valid, the film must be installed for interior use only and away from direct contact with water. For example, for a shower screen film installation, the warranty will be valid only if the safety film is installed on the “dry” side of the glass.
The film adhesive will not bind well to a textured glass surface, hence we are unable to install 3M Safety Film on it. The safety film can only be installed on a flat glass surface. Please check with our sales consultant if you have further clarifications.
