Privacy Window Film by The Window Film Company

The Window Film Company Ltd.

Windows are a valuable source of light as well as providing a welcome view to the outside world. Sometimes however, privacy is required and in offering a range of specialist privacy window films, The Window Film Company can help you obscure vision in a stylish and effective way.

There are two primary types of privacy that an application of window film can deliver:

  • Full time two-way privacy.
  • Daytime one-way privacy.

Both types of film are available in a number of finishes, and can be installed at your premises by The Window Film Company's experienced installation teams who operate nationwide.

Daytime one-way privacy can be achieved with an application of reflective window film. The film appears reflective on the brighter side of the glass, which is always the external side during daylight hours, thus preventing vision through the glass. The view from the inside out is maintained. As the film works on the light balance, a ratio of light to dark of 3:1 is necessary for the film for optimum performance.

Reflective privacy film is available in different grades, in different colours and in both finishes suitable for both internal and external application. As well as providing privacy, reflective film can provide a range of other benefits including UV protection, the cutting down of glare and in some cases protection against solar gain.

Two-way privacy is offered by films such as Frostbrite frosted film, or solid colour vinyls.
Frostbrite will give your glazing the appearance of acid-etched glass, preventing vision both ways whilst still allowing high levels of light to pass through the glass. Available in a range of finishes, frosted film provides an immediate and attractive privacy solution.

Frosted window film can also be computer cut to take the form of patterns and logos, and can also be printed upon to feature customer artwork or designs, creating a truly bespoke privacy film.

Solid vinyls are available in a range of colours and will block both vision and a large proportion of the light. Vinyl is a good choice for blocking unsightly views or for as a privacy film whilst building or renovation works take place. Vinyl is not suitable for application to every type of glass, so if you are considering this or any other privacy window film, please call us on 01494 794477 and a member of the team will be able to assist.
