Types of Privacy Window Film

Types of Privacy Window Film in Singapore

There are many different uses for window films. Blocking the nasty heat in your homes and offices, blocking harmful UV Rays to prevent your furniture from fading, increasing the durability and safety of your glass windows, and the list goes on.
 
Another common use for window film in Singapore is for privacy. There are several window films that have effects of “blurring” or “darkening” of glass windows. This gives a certain level of privacy to prevent your house or office from prying eyes.

3) Low Visible Light Transmittance Film & One Way Mirror Film

Darker or reflective window films can achieve privacy in the daytime when there is more light outside. People are unable to look in while on the other hand, the occupant has a clear view of the outside. Do note however, that in the night, the effect is reversed when the lights are brighter indoors – people from the outside are able to look in clearly, but you cannot look outside.
 
Privacy window films can offer certain degree of privacy depending on the type of film used or the lighting conditions. To truly achieve privacy, we would recommend combining a window film with other products like blinds and curtains. In this method, privacy can be 100% achieved and heat can be effectively blocked out.
