In search of 7 foot wide tint


Recommended Posts

Ooooh.  I don’t do much flat glass but that’s a tough one. 
 

Since you can only get 72” product, I would recommend a 4” reveal all the way around.  :dunno  

 

 A seam in that size window anywhere is going to suck.  

 

Interested in seeing what the pro’s say.

I was around for some oversized shit like that when I was a helper. But the straight edges up in the center of the window cut sides, gotta do what you gotta do :dunno didn’t look bad. I’m sure there was more measuring and planning than I remember.

It was a royal pain! 

Over 15 years ago. 78"x 105" with a 10% vlt so the seams were a b*tch.

Now seams have split. Salt deposits frosted the edges. Needs to be replaced.

FYI: SunTek SYLR-10, color still looks good and 60% of the job is still good.. Only direct ocean exposure went south.

You'd rather precisely hand cut 4 overlap seams 2 directions than 1 vertical seam?

No of course not, but you never specified in your vague opening statement what type of install it was.

 Reveals can look awesome done correctly, not on just one window but you get what I mean, and it would be way easier to drop one piece on a big window like that.

 

BUT,,, After seeing a pic, I would seam that across the top where it is less noticeable and let it ride.  A vertical seam will be more noticeable no matter where you put it.
