Gila Window film experiences?


I have a large window above my sliding doors in my living room. I would like add some UV protection and some heat insulation. The Gila films seem to be a possible solution.
What is the general experience with Gila films? Are there competitors I should look at?

Also, look at GE films (tho I think they only do pro applications, not direct sales), and...ahhhhh (I just had it in my head!!) Solartint? Suntint? Solarfilm? Sorry, I just saw it a couple of days ago, now, poof!

Check window warranty. Use of window film on sealed insulated windows often voids window warranty. Some film companies offer warranty in the event of window failure.
