Frequently asked question
Are also privat customers allowed to take an order by PBS?
No, PBS supplies primarily specialist dealers, film-installers, reseller out of the film-industry.
What payment options do you offer?
As payment options are available:
Payment in advance and PayPal.
A purchase on account is not possible, our prices are tough calculated, so that we can not afford a payment failure!
Can I take an order by telephone?
Unfortunately not! The experiences of the past have shown, that orders by telephone are
responisblefor mistakes as transposed digits, confusions relating to the width/length
or inside/outside films. In order to avoid this unneeded cause of defect, we are
pleased to take an order just over ourshopsystem.
Which film should I use, indoor or outdoor films?
This depends primarily on your windows. In a single-glazed, window films and solar films can
generally coated from the inside or on the outside. In a double-/triple-glazing, skylights,
sloped glazings,heat resistant glazings and safety films we always recommended a
outdoor installation! If these windows are coated on the inside, a breakage of glass can
come through a heat accumulation!
Do you have a minimum order value?
Yes. The minimum order value is 40€.
Do you charge any shipping costs?
The shipping costs depend on the number of packages and their weight.
These are displayed before completing your order.
Does any film exist, which I´m able to look out, but nobody is able to look in?
Unfortunately limited! There exists mirror films which offers durign the day, if it´s outside
brighter, good blinds. Although they afford a parallel transparence from the
inside to the outside. This principle works if it´s outside brighter than inside!
The mirror films works best, the greater the difference in light from the inside to the outside.
Here, the reflective film is always mirrored to the side on which it is brighter!
If it is darker outside e.g. in the evening and you turn on the lights inside, the mirror effect
reverses around! Therefore, a continuous screening is not guaranteed.
The film can be removed without of residues?
Yes, all our films can be removed without of redidues.
Prevents a UV-protectct film the fading of goods behind the display window?
Our UV-protective films offers you a UV-Block which filters out more than 99% of the damaging
UV radiation. Based on this protection, the fading of goods behind the display windows, furnitures,
carpets, textiles will be delay around nine-point of time, however it can not avoid completely.
Thats´s why the goods behind the display windows should be change regularly.
How does mirror films work and do they also operate at night?
Mirror films operate according to the principle of the light variations. During the day if it´s outside
brighter than inside, forms on the lighter side outside a mirror effect and on the darker side in the
inside you can look out. At night, when it's darker outside than inside, this effect reserves, so that
you haven´t any blinds from outside to inside. That´s why mirror films are just limited suitable for
blinds! Generally, darker films works better than lighter films.
Requires the film a special glue?
No! All films of Soldera are self adhesive and they have the glue already on the film.
This will be protected through the protective film, which will be removed until shortly
before the installation. Self-adhesive films don´t need any glue, because they
adhere statically on the window.
A film may be coated part of the area?
Solar films and all metallized films should never coated part of the area.
Thus would be responsible for differences in temperatur, which in the worst case lead
to a crack in the glass. Clear films, not metallize films and Decorative films can be
coated part of the area.
How many degrees is it cooler by using solar films?
The one can not say exactly, as this further factors are also important,
such as eg. the insulation of the spaces, cardinal direction of the windows, type of film,
inside-/outside installation and many other factors which plays a role.
Certainly after many years we can assess, you achieve an explicit reduce of the
room temperature based on a good outside film.
A film can be installed in any weather?
For an outdoor installation the temperatur should be at least 5°C, otherwise the
glue doesn´t bind. In wind and rain you shouldn´t perform any installation.
Can I install a inside film also outside?
You can do that already, but the lifetime is limited by the fact!
High-quality outside films have an additional, clear transparent protective film
to increase the lifetime in the outer region.
Still grow my houseplants behind the solar film?
If you have decide for solar films, the plants will be very quickly adjust to the
new lighting conditions. They may grow more slowly than without solar films,
but you can protect other plants, which would burned without solar films.
The window has to removed for installation?
An expansion of the disks is not required. All films can be easily retrofitted into
the existing window mount.
