How to Measure for Window Graphics
Measuring for a typical window
When providing measurements, it’s best to request the exact size film you require (to the nearest mm) The ideal situation, is to have your window film sit perfectly flat on your glass, without riding up over rubber seals or painted frame edges.
Measure your glass area with a tape measure; taking care to bend the tape into the frame edges to get an accurate reading. You’ll find its not possible bend the tape measure all the way into the edge of the seal, so you’ll have to estimate were your tape measure will lay, by projecting an imaginary line towards the edge of the rubber seal (see dotted red line)
Measuring for internal glass partitions
Glass partition graphics are usually installed on the flat surface of the glass only (shown in orange) and not allowed to over run bevelled edges or the plastic joiners between glass panels.
Joiners often stand proud of the glass surface, and can prevent graphics from sitting flat on the glass, which in turn, create unsightly edges.
We recommend providing exact dimensions for the flat glass areas. If a design/pattern is to flow across multiple glass panels, then it’s useful for us to know the distance between bevelled edges - that way we can create gaps in the pattern and maintain flow across the glazing.
