Mirrored and "One Way" Window Film for Privacy and Security
Reflective "mirror" film is primarily a solar control window film which happens to have the added feature of doubling up as a privacy film.
This is the perfect window film product where "one way" daytime privacy is required through external facing windows. Outward vision is unobstructed while inward vision is obscured. Ideal as a visual security safeguard to protect personnel and equipment from prying eyes.
I found Lustalux very helpful with an excellent 'can do' attitude. We needed a job completed at very short notice for an important event and Lustalux were able to support us and complete the work on time.Anthony E - Lancaster University
How does one way / two way glass film work?
"One Way" film gives glass the capability to act as a one way mirror with surrounding light conditions dictating how the mirror effect will work. The reason why these windows appear mirrored from the outside, yet can be viewed through from the inside is due to their metalised coating and the differential in external and internal light frequencies.
Here is how one way film and glass is usually portrayed in films and on TV - note that one side is much more brightly lit than the other.
There is a common misconception that depending on which side of the window the film is applied, determines where the mirror effect is achieved. The truth is that EVERYTHING depends on which side is the brightest.
Another added benefit of this type of window film is the added privacy it offers to your building. Offering complete mirrored reflection during daytime hours, this window film aids in keeping prying eyes from viewing confidential documents or processes.
“One Way” film works best for privacy during the day. For the most effective privacy and business security throughout both light and dark hours, we recommend opaque, frosted window film.
Still unsure as to what type of film you need for your building?
