Touch Film Q&A

How does Touch-Film work? Touch-Film technology has micro-wires embedded within the Film which sense a body’s’ electrical charge – even through glass

Will a Touch-Film work on my glass? In most cases, YES. Touch-Film is guaranteed to detect touch through glass up to 22mm or .87″ thick. In many cases, Touch-Films are operative through 1.5″ glass configurations including an air gap. Touch-Film works on single and double pane glass, and even glass installed with Security Film – as found in New York City. IN NO CASE can you use Touch-Film Technology on LOW-E Glass due to a metal coating on the glass which prohibits Touch capability. Please contact us for more information regarding whether or not Touch-Film will work on your glass.Will Touch-Film distort my picture? No. Touch-Film technology is nearly 100% transparent and the light transmission is better than 93%. Most customers cannot even see the Touch-Film or the Application-Film once installed. When using through glass Touch-Film technology with Rear Projection Film, apply the Touch-Film to the projection side of glass first, and then apply Rear-Projection Film over the Touch-Film. This process will result in the best image quality.

How does Touch-Film install? Through glass Touch-Film technology installs in a similar manner as do window tint materials – but our product is more expensive, so be careful! You will be provided installation instructions and have access to demonstration videos to help you through the installation process. While Through-Glass Touch-Screens can be installed as a DIY, we recommend that if you have no prior experience with technology and/or window tint material installation, that you solicit professional installation services – either from an SSI Installation Technician or a local Professional.
