Frosted window film is a thin translucent material which is applied directly to your windows or doors, on smooth non-textured glass, on wooden, metal, aluminum or UPVC framed windows. Once applied, frosted vinyl film gives your windows the appearance of frosted glass, making it opaque and ideal for day and night privacy. Window frosting can also be used to obscure an unsightly view, or to enhance security by hiding your valuable items from prying eyes.

Types of frost

It is now widely used as a modern, practical and stylish alternative to nets and blinds, by applying the film to the bottom half of a bay window for example. Glass frost film is multi directional so will look the same whether applied horizontally or vertically.

Glass frosting film is also suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, toilets and shower rooms as it is resistant to condensation. For extra peace of mind and if you are concerned that people can see through a frosted bathroom window, we have a denser frost for that purpose. Frosted film is also a much better option than frosted glass spray as it will give a long lasting sandblast finish, with no mess. 

Which window frosting should I choose for privacy?

 The plain frost is ideal for most privacy-related purposes and is perfect for a home or office setting. It is colourless and looks very subtle when applying to the glass, and the loss of natural light is minimal.

Our white frost is denser and more opaque, making it ideal for bathrooms, shower rooms and toilets. 

The etched glass effect films have a sparkly finish similar to 3M films, and also come in blue, green and pink, and are a very decorative option for glass.

Opal frost is 1.5m wide making it ideal for glass partitions and large panes of glass.

Our static-cling film is very easy to remove, making it ideal for temporary uses and rental properties.

Below are a few questions that we are frequently asked.

By the metre or cut-to-size?

If you buy the window frosting by the metre, most of our products have a metric grid printed on the backing paper to make it easier to mark and cut. The static and opal frosts come with clear backing. To save time, you can order your frosted window film cut to size. Just measure your panes and enter the measurements in the required fields, and the price will calculate for you. All our films are cut using a state of the art computerised cutting machine accurate to 0.5mm.

Is self-cling or self-adhesive glass window film better to obscure the glass?

We recommend a self adhesive frost or stick on window frosting to cover your windows and doors for long-term applications as it's more durable and less prone to being picked away by little hands. The second option, self-cling frosted film, will last for years, but the day you need to remove it, you can peel it off in seconds, making it an ideal temporary glass frosting option. 

Is frosting film easy to apply?

To apply the window frosting film, all you'll need are a few basic tools, and we even throw in a small application tool with your order for free, along with a set of instructions. Soapy water is the key ingredient, as it allows for a bubble-free application. So in a nut shell you remove the protective backing first, spray the adhesive side and the glass with soapy water, stick the frost on the glass and squeeze out the water with the tool provided. 

How to apply frosted window film

Once applied, Purlfrost films require little maintenance apart from a wipe with soapy water once a year. 

Please take a minute to watch our video tutorial. We supply thousands of customers a month who have never applied window film before, and according to the great feedback and our 5 star rating on Trustpilot, our instructions must be very helpful as success rate is 99.9%.

How to remove window frosting film?

Static frost comes off in seconds by just peeling it off the glass. Adhesive film takes longer to remove and you will need a glass scraper to remove the film and the adhesive. Please take a look at our video tutorial.

What can I do with the offcuts?

If you purchased your film off the roll, chances are you'll have some extra material left over. At Purlfrost, we tend to give any left over materials, like coloured vinyl film to local school where they can be used for craft. If the film you purchased has a paper backing, you'll notice some simple designs printed on it, including numbers, which can be cut out to create window stickers, like glass safety dots for patio doors, or to add a house number to your front door or the transom above it.

Other uses

If your dog is constantly barking at the window, the best way to stop it is by applying a band of frost to the glass to hide the view externally.
