How to install an architectural film on a door ?

To install adhesive vinyl on your doors, we advise you to call a professional installer. However, it is possible to do it yourself by following these tips:

  • We recommend unlocking the door and remove the handle before cleaning it. Start by cleaning the door with a cloth to remove residue and dust. If necessary, sand the surface or make repairs with putty. Next, measure the area of the door to which you wish to apply the adhesive. Add 2 to 3 centimeters on each side so that the architectural film is larger than the surface to which it will be applied.

  • Now start applying the architectural film to the door. First, peel off about 5 cm of paper from the back of the film and fold it over so that only a small section of the adhesive surface is exposed. Then place the exposed surface of the architectural film at one end of the door and align the film over the entire surface. When the film is in the correct position, press it onto the surface. Remove the backing paper with one hand to apply the film to the rest of the door and simultaneously press the film down with the squeegee.

  • When the adhesive has been applied to the entire door, use a cutter to remove the excess film. Remember to make a 45 degree cut or sand with sandpaper. Slowly and carefully pull the cutter blade up and down along the edge of the door to cut the film. The edges are now straight and clean!
