Wimbledon. And the weather is fantastic for a change!

Running around centre court with the sun blazing can take its toll on the players.

But sweltering in a hot office or workplace is worse – making your day unbearable, uncomfortable and unpleasant.

Net results

Surveys have shown that excessive heat in the workplace increases the risk of accidents — and dramatically reduces productivity too.

So — what’s the solution?

Advantage — Durable

Solar control window film is a high tech product developed specifically to deal with all manner of issues involving glass.

Durable have a huge range of quality window film to manage practically any of these problems. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience and have helped some of the top companies in the UK take control of their glass.

You cannot be serious!

Oh — but we are!

The simple application of solar control window film can radically reduce heat and glare through windows by up to 90% – and practically eliminates all harmful UV rays.

Incredibly, this almost invisible* unimposing material can pretty much fix all your heat & glare woes — and is relatively quick and cost-efficient to install.


Court appearance…?

Anywhere where glass and people mix there is the potential for accidents and injury.

Regulation 14 of  the health and safety in the workplace act states that glass must be made apparent — so glass partitions, doors etc need to be made visible.

No problem

Durable have a range of safety films too — which not only help you to comply with regulations and satisfy this duty of care — but also provide privacy, and can add a touch of stylish elegance or branding to your glass.

On the line

We’re just a phone call away (or email if you prefer) so why not call us today?

You’ll be glad you did.

Tony’s still got it. He can’t remember what it is – but he still has it. Probably.

Game — set & match. Durable

We have been in the window film business for over 50 years.

We are the oldest window film company in Europe.

We are the experts.

We are good with glass.

Oh — and the service is ace 🙂

Don’t just take our word for it…

Everybody likes to think they do a good honest professional job for a decent price, delivered on time — but it’s another thing to get the praise, feedback and loyalty that going that extra mile with service and a smile brings.

Our customers are more than happy to sing our praises.

Which is nice.

Here’s what some of our lovely customers have to say;

University — Oxford

We have worked with Durable for over 10 years, during which time they have undertaken glazing risk assessments for all of our main teaching campuses (5 in total) and all our halls of residence (approximately 5000 study bedrooms). This is a lot of glazing. The risk assessments are comprehensive and easy to follow, allowing us to formulate plans to apply film to areas of the highest priority in a world of limited budgets.

The team from Durable who visit our site to undertake the work do so safely, are polite and sensitive to a academic environment, along with an awareness of the issues surrounding working in close proximity to young persons. Durable’s work is always concluded successfully with minimal disruption to the students, and without any incidents.

I look forward to many more years working with Durable and have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Just to say we are really pleased with the window film, it is much more
effective than the blinds, glad we had it done..!

We confirm that you have completed the security film applications at 4GSQ and 14TKY.It was stated by the embassy officials that they thought that your workmanship was of a excellent quality, as was your attention to detail during the site visit the day prior to the works. Thanks for all your help. Look forward to working with you in the future.

It’s just about a year since Durable applied film to my conservatory roof. It has been an outstanding success. Summertime temperatures can now be easily controlled to give a comfortable 26C as against mid to high 30+C. Winter performance is even more dramatic. When outdoor temperatures drop to around freezing overnight the unheated conservatory retains heat, some mornings being as high as 10C. We also retain higher temperatures during the daytime when the central heating is off. I feel the benefits we have obtained from the film installation are even more remarkable when you factor in, that our cottage is at the bottom of a valley, alongside a fast flowing stream (which has a natural cooling effect) . AND the cottage does not benefit from direct winter sunshine between December and early March.

We have worked with Durable since the early 1990’s and have had excellent service and advise on many compliance issues, surveying most schools and Civic buildings and assisting us to get to a glazing compliant position.

I would like to express our appreciation for the professionalism of your fitting team during the recent installation of window film at our offices. They were friendly, worked with us to ensure minimum disruption to our business, kept us informed, and cleared up any mess to leave a smart looking finished job. In these days when it is often difficult to get good quality work people — your team were a pleasure to work with and a real credit to your organisation.

Thank you for your help regarding installing Solar Control film in my conservatory.
I would like to record my appreciation of the courtesy and helpfulness of your representative. Polite, convincing and reassuring — a pleasant contrast to the usual hard-sell approach.

Michael Saxby

Dr Challoner’s Grammar School

With reference to the work carried out on our school this week. I felt I had to contact you to say how much my colleagues and I have appreciated the polite and unobtrusive manner of your fitting team whilst on site. It has been a pleasure to meet such right-spirited workmen.

G C Hill

Saints Way Multi Academy Trust

This was the first time we have used Durable across our 6no primary schools and we are more than happy with the service.
I met with Peter on site to discuss our glazing RA options and he was very knowledgeable and helpful  and helped me get a programme of works arranged for our sites following the RA. The guys who completed the RA were courteous and professional in their work as they were working in a ‘Live school’ environment so this required them to be flexible in their approach. All the reports were clear and concise and easy to understand.

I would definitely recommend Peter and the Durable team again.
