We have compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions regarding the SEACLEAR window defogger. If you still have any questions, please feel free to contact our sales staff to answer any further questions.
HOW LONG WILL THE FILM LAST?
Our heated window film was introduced to the market in 1991, and many of these units are still inoperation today. By following simple yearly maintenance, the film will lastupwards of 20 years.
WILL THE FILM YELLOW OR FADE WITH AGE?
SEACLEAR film's are manufactured with the finest materials available. The film has been coated with a clear hardcoat to prevent scratching from the installation and everyday cleaning. In addition, UV inhibitors have been used to prevent the film from yellowing.
CAN I INSTALL THE FILM MYSELF?
SEACLEAR designed the film to be installed by almost anyone. Installation is very simple and takes approximately 15 minutes. However for large complex fitting applications SEACLEAR is available for installation.
WHAT DO I NEED TO INSTALL THE FILM?
Other than glass cleaner and paper towels everything needed to install is included with the film.
CAN THE FILM BE REMOVED AND APPLIED TO ANOTHER WINDOW?
No, once the film has been installed it cannot be taken off for later use.
CAN THE FILM BE CUT?
While the length can be cut, we don't recommend doing so. If it is absolutely necessary, contact us for instructions. The width cannot be cut in any way.
DOES THE FILM NEED TO COVER THE ENTIRE WINDOW?
No, it's not necessary. When possible aesthetically it's best to cover as much of the window as possible.
WHAT IS THE LARGEST FILM YOU MAKE?
Currently the maximum size is 26”x 60”. For larger windows, many customers use two films.
I DON’T HAVE A GENERATOR, ONLY BATTERIES. HOW LARGE OF AN INVERTER DO I NEED?
In nearly every case a 400 watt DC to AC inverter will work.
I HAVE A SHAPED WINDOW, CAN YOU MAKE ONE TO FIT?
Yes, we custom manufacture on a regular basis.
I SEE A SIZE THAT WILL WORK BUT CAN I PUT THE CONTROLLER IN A DIFFERENT LOCATION?
We can usually move the controller, but an Art and Film charge will apply.
HOW CLOSE TO THE EDGE CAN THE FILM COME TO THE EDGE?
We recommend at least a 1/2” space between the film and the frame or seal. If you have a deep frame, you will need 1 ½” gap to allow for the circuit and cord to clear the frame.
