Cars, Vans & Most Vehicle Types
We've been designing templates and manufacturing VentureShield for many years, so we have a great understanding of vehicle contours, and we can produce a templates for any vehicle with optimal coverage and protection. Whether you want standard coverage to protect the most vulnerable areas of your car from damage, extended coverage to fully wrap your bonnet for improved aesthetics, or even full vehicle coverage for ultimate car paint protection, we have a protective film solution for you. Our dedicated template engineers produce bespoke designs for each make and model of vehicle as soon as they hit the road, helping you to have total peace of mind, knowing that the kit will fit perfectly first time, with no cutting of the film on the car needed.
We only sell VentureShield through a national network of trained and approved installers, so you can have confidence in the standard of work they carry out. Whether on a supermini, family hatchback or supercar, the level of care and attention that they deliver is second to none. Contact your nearest Approved Installer now for more information.
As opposed to car kits, which have to be professionally installed due to their complexity and size, bike kits are specifically designed to be DIY fit and easy to install. The areas they cover are generally quite small, so there is much less complexity in the shapes and contours they fit around. The coverage still means you get optimum protection against chips and scuffs but you benefit from reduced cost, being DIY fit. Most makes and models of bike since 2000 have a specific template already designed and we continue to produce new ones each week. We try and get hold of press bikes or demo bikes, so we can see each and every area that gets damaged and then make a corresponding template.
With the increasing popularity of matte paint finishes, we also have a matte film, so that you get the same levels of protection but are able to maintain the matte finish of the bike. Contact one of our approved installers to find out how you can purchase a DIY motorbike kit for your motorbike. approved installers
Taking part in motorsports means higher speeds for your car or motorbike, with more debris and potential for surface damage, which can be costly to repair, especially on carbon fibre panels. VentureShield is tested and used at the pinnacle of 2 and 4 wheel motorsport and has a race-proven heritage all around the world. Whether you want to protect the sponsor’s logos from getting damaged, or stop debris from taking chunks out of carbon fibre panels, VentureShield will ensure you’re on the track for longer, rather than in the paintshop.

When you have a need for surface protection, chances are you need VentureShield. It's used on pleasure boats and super yachts to prevent abrasion from fenders and ropes, as well as being applied around the scum line to prevent unsightly stains on the hull, and make cleaning easier.
VentureShield is also used on mobile phones, sports equipment, watches, ski helmets, wake boards, jet skis, and even surfboards! These are non-standard applications and we probably won’t have a template for it, but by using raw material and making your own template, you can still get the same benefits as standard applications.
Contact your nearest installer for more information and pricing. They can advise on how much material you’ll need, and the best way to create a template for your specific application.
