    I've already done installation of perforated vinyl in the early or end of winter (0° Celsius or 32° Fahrenheit). But a customer ask me to install perforated vinyl on 6 of his store in February 1st. The temperature can go down to -20° Celsius or -4 Fahrenheit).

    My first question is, do I will be able to install this at those temperature? Secondly, how the material is reacting with the cold?

    Thanks.

    No, the film will become brittle and it won't even stick

    That's what I taught. Do you have other suggestions? The windows have a little tint on them, so I would prefer to put the print on the outside of the windows. But if I don't have the choice, I will install them from the inside.

    Maybe if you rigged up some kind of tarp across all the windows and use one of them torpeedo propane heaters you might be able to pull it off installing from the outside then.
