Surface Installation Basics
Provide us the width and height
we will confirm the pre-wiring location
after payment is recieved
Allow a minimum 1/8' installation tolerance
BETWEEN PRIVACY FILMTM AND WINDOW FRAME
(1/8' = 3.175 mm)
Do not remove protective liner until you are ready to install
Never curve, bend or fold smart film
Take particular care with the edges to avoid de-lamination
Always wear Nitrile gloves when handling the iSwitch smart film
Take off 20 to 30mm of the protecting layer from the "stick" side of the film and stick the film onto glass surface. As you take off the protecting layer, you can apply the film and use a vinyl scraper to get rid of air bubbles. Do not remove the whole protection layer before applying the film on the glass.
[The film itself comes with an electrostatic absorption layer on the stick side film. You cannot use any water or chemical materials for installation. Chemicals or water can damage the electrostatic layer resulting on the non- adhesiveness of the film on the glass].
After the sticking is done properly, connect the wires from the copper connector parts by soldering with iron. Then strip off the protecting plastic layer on the other side of the film by using an adhesive tape on the surface. Connect the controllers by strictly following the wiring connection diagram and then test.
You can use a Plastic or other Insulation materials to protect the copper connector parts. For all edges, we strongly suggest to apply a very thin layer of non conductive glass silicone or a 3M glue tape for protection. If not, the edges of the film may delaminate with time.
- Don't use water or any other chemicals to wash, install or touching the edges of the film.
- The Smart film should be 2 - 3 mm shorter than the glass to avoid a direct contact with the frame.
- Strictly follow the wiring connection guide we offer before testing the film. If any problems arises from a high voltage, it will not be under warranty.
- Strictly use the silicones required to avoid the delamination of the smart film.
