Window film. It’s not rocket science…

Posted on - December 11, 2023

At Durable we know a lot about history. 

We should — we’ve been around for most of it!

In 1969 when the Apollo 11 space mission was putting Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Moon the window film industry was in its infancy.

That’s when ‘Durable Solar Control Ltd’ first set up business — over 50 years ago!

We are the oldest window film company in Europe.

The name ‘Durable’ has been synonymous with selling and sticking film on windows for a very long time.

The book ‘The Joy of Sex’ was first published. It coincided nicely with the first coupling of Durable and Solar Gard — and we’ve had a great relationship ever since.

We even received a “Lifetime Achievement ‘ Award from Solar Gard for our unique long standing commitment to window film.



Well done us.

Durable have a great pedigree and an unrivalled heritage. We continue to go from strength to strength — providing all our years of experience and knowledge, whilst continually embracing and supporting the development of new products and markets.

If you’re still not convinced that 1969 was a good year for ‘film’ — check out this list.

Films released in 1969:

The Italian Job
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
Easy Rider
True Grit
The Wild Bunch

Durable — real film stars.

We’ve been around a long time. Stick with us.
