How does anti-graffiti film work?
It is a transparent but very strong film made of special polymers and can be installed on the mirror, glass, or metal surfaces outside your house. If it is damaged in any way it can be quickly removed and reinstalled.
Aside from its main purpose — to protect your windows and walls from graffiti — this film also adds an extra layer of protection from UV rays, heat, and glare. Installed on windows it acts as a shield that prevents your interior from overheating and furniture from fading.
