Mirrored Window Film.
Daytime One-Way Privacy Window films.
Daytime one-way privacy is achieved with an application of reflective or “mirrored” window film. The film appears mirrored on the outside of windows during daylight hours therefore restricting vision through the glass.
The view from the inside of the building during this time is not compromised. As the film works on contrasting light levels, the ideal ratio of light to dark is approximately 6:1 which is why achieving one way vision on internal glass screens is notoriously difficult.
For internal glazing best results can be achieved by manipulating the lighting between two rooms with one side more brightly lit than the other. Think of your favourite TV police drama with the suspects being interviewed in a brightly lit room while being viewed from a darkened room through a one way mirror.
Reflective privacy film is available in different VLT’s or Visible Light Transmissions and in different shades including silver, bronze and grey. All reflective window films will reduce UV transmission, IR transmission (heat) and glare therefore providing multiple benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions.
Will reflective film dazzle cars on the road outside my building?
This is a common misconception but in our thirty years’ experience has never been an issue.
Does frosted film block any light?
Yes, there will be some light loss. As already explained, for the one-way effect to work it need to be darker on the inside of the building. Also, when used as an anti-glare film the glass needs to be darkened just like sunglasses.
Can the film be cleaned?
Yes absolutely. We recommend a soft damp cloth or a window cleaners squeegee which is how we apply it in the first place.
Does the film scratch easily?
No. All our films are protected by a hard coating so normal daily wear and tear will not affect it.
Can the film be removed?
Yes, if desired. It is firmly bonded to the glass however with the correct tools it can be easily removed.
Will the film fade or shrink over time?
Absolutely not. All our films are warrantied for a minimum of ten years and most will last longer than that.

Window film is a thin laminate film that can be installed to the interior or exterior of glass in both commercial and residential buildings. The process of window film installation involves the use of a self-adhesive polyester film which is applied to the glass acting as a sunscreen, blocking harmful IR and UVB rays and regulating the levels of heat and light passing through it.
Window film can also be a cost effective retrofit solution for windows that need to be upgraded to meet today’s building codes and energy standards.
