Notes
(a) Due to the inclusion of compounds that can corrode when exposed to salty air, some films require edge sealing when installed within 16km (10 miles) of the sea, or within 16km (10 miles) of brackish rivers and estuaries. Edge sealing with clear silicone adhesive is a specialised glazing skill and will add to the installation cost, if required.
