Commercial

  1. Any quotes relevant to construction sites with site allowances where an Enterprise Bargaining Agreement is applicable will need to allow $250 per worker per day on site.
  2. Any induction longer than 30 minutes will be charged for at $80 per half hour per installer. If a Union site, $100 per half hour per installer.
  3. If we are requested to attend a site that is: -
    1. Not ready for film installation (i.e. Sanding taking place),
    2. Glass has not yet been installed,
    3. Or a situation occurs preventing us from completing an installation (i.e. A meeting in the relevant room);
      Then a call-out fee of $500 per installer allocated per day will be charged.
  4. Once a job has been booked in, any cancellation made up to 72 hours before the booked day will incur a charge of $500 per installer allocated, per day. Please also note it may take up to 14 days for the job to be rebooked. If the job is completely cancelled, the film, having already been prepped, will be charged for.
  5. If we must move furniture, fittings or other items, we will take all care but cannot accept any liability for any damage inadvertently caused. Our quote is based on allowing us reasonable access to the area. If we experience delays of more than 15 minutes, down time will be charged at the rate of $90 per hour per person. All computer equipment must be turned off and moved 2 meters away from the glass. If this is not possible, we will take all due care, but cannot accept any responsibility for any damage.

Cleaning Instructions

Do not clean the film for at least four weeks after installation.

  • Use a spray, synthetic sponge or a moist cloth to apply the cleaning solution. Warm water and detergent, methylated spirits and water or conventional window cleaning solution may be used. Do not use any brushes or abrasives in the cleaning process, as they will scratch the film.
  • Dry with a good quality rubber squeegee, chamois or a moist soft cloth. Dry the edges thoroughly.

Polyester film is a tough wear resistant product, but its surface is not as hard as glass, and therefore can be damaged by abrasive cleaners and improper treatment.

Cleaning Instructions

Initially you may notice that film is not optically perfect. It could appear hazy and milky and the surface may have an “orange peel” effect or even quite large bubbles. This is no cause for alarm. It is in fact a normal part of the drying process. After the adhesive has cured, the apparent imperfections will disappear. This process will take three to thirty days.

During this process, the film is performing in the same manner as it will when the adhesive is fully cured. Do not touch the film until the curing process is finished and do not wash it until it has been on the glass for at least four weeks. The small border of light which you see around the edge of each sheet of film is an edge trim of approximately 1.5 to 3 millimetres. The gap is a safety margin to ensure the complete sealing of the film to the glass and to allow for expansion and contraction of the glass. Sometimes the customer feels that he sees a defect in the film when in fact it is the glass itself. It is quite natural to look closely at a new purchase, but because we generally look through the glass not at it, it is quite possible to see imperfections which have always been in the glass, but were never noticed before. A good rule is to look at the installation from 3 metres away. This is the distance which has been accepted by the United States glass industry as the viewing distance for the appraisal of reflective glass windows.

Insurance

We recommend that you notify your insurance company that our product has been applied to your windows, so that in the even of a breakage, both the cost of the glass and the coating are covered. We have found that most companies do not require any additional premium for this cover.

Payment

All invoices are to be paid upon completion unless otherwise specified by SolarX Pty Ltd management. Should you fail to pay your invoices by the due date then we may charge interest on any overdue invoice at the penalty rate fixed under the Penalty Interest Rates Act 1983 (Victoria), calculated and compounded daily, from the due date until the invoice is paid in full. The buyer shall also pay all our costs and expenses incurred legally in the recovery or attempted recovery of the overdue amount from you.

Claims

You agree to our payment terms and agree that any dispute in relation to invoice(s) must be made in writing within 30 days of installation.
