"This product will eliminate the draughts caused by gaps around windows especially the sash type. Bit of a drag to install but well worth the effort when those cold winter winds blow. Seems expensive for what it is - a large sheet of plastic film and a roll of double sided tape - but that is probably re-covered in saved energy costs or at least in comfort. Reliability? You need to check the integrity of the seal between film and frame at regular intervals. There is a downside; removing the tape from the windows in the spring can be problematic despite the advice given. The adhesive can be extremely tenacious and difficult to remove (I had to use a special chemical product in the end) and paint can be pulled off the frames resulting in the need to do a full stripdown and repaint"
"This window film and tape works fine on small windows but on large ones, the film comes loose very quickly and renders the film useless. This has happened to me on two of my four windows. Is it the adhesive on the tape that is the problem?"
"The 3 windows I 'glazed' with this product failed within 24 hours. The tape slowly slipped as the plastic pulled it towards the centre of the window and eventually gave way completely. This was NOT due to the surface being dirtly / greasy as I diligently cleaned it as per the instructions.
On the screwfix site this is branded as a Stormguard product, but when picked up in store it came in a plain plastic bag with no branding.
3 other windows I glazed with a Stormguard branded version (which has a different roll of tape) have stayed perfectly in place for several weeks.
My suggestion is pay an extra quid for the real thing!"
"I have used this before but not this make what I used was by "polycell". That was good but this which I got from screwfix was terrible. Stuck ok but when it was shrunk it was ok for 2 or 3 hours then went all slack and looked terrible. Tried to shrink again and it split so it was useless. Even bought another pack just as bad.........real glutton for punishment,would never recommend to anyone would lose my mates. Would have asked for a refund but after you have takken it down I dont think they would accept."
