Purlfrost frosted window film is designed to obscure glass for privacy, as a contemporary and affordable alternative to net curtains and blinds, for home decoration or enhanced security, with little loss of natural light. Frosted glass film can be ordered cut to size, or off the roll by the meter, either in self-adhesive vinyl or static cling film options. Frosted window film is easy to apply in minutes using soapy water, and the free felt edged tool provided with your order.
Window frosting is made from a thin translucent material which is applied directly to your windows or glass doors, on smooth non-textured glass, on wooden, metal, aluminum or UPVC framed windows.
Once applied, the glass film gives your windows a very realistic frosted glass effect similar to sandblasted or etched glass, making it opaque for instant privacy, day and night even with the lights on. Our privacy glass film products can also be used to obscure an unsightly view, for decorative purposes with many contemporary and period designs to choose from, or to enhance security by hiding your valuable items from prying eyes.
It is now widely used as a modern, practical and stylish alternative to nets and blinds, by applying the stick on window frosting 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.
Our frosted glass 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. Self adhesive frosting film is also a much better option than frosted glass spray as it will give a long lasting sandblast finish, with no mess.
Window film is very versatile and it's ability to be printed on or cut out gives it many uses and interior solutions.
Our 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 privacy in bathrooms, shower rooms and toilets.
Opal frost is 1.5m wide making it ideal for glass partitions and large panes of glass.
Our static-cling film is non adhesive so very easy to remove, making it ideal for temporary uses and rental properties.
Patterned window film has a pattern or design which has been either cut out of or printed on to the film. We have a wide variety of designs to choose from to suit any interior scheme, from Art Deco and Art Nouveau to stained glass and Victorian designs. We also have an online design feature which will enable you to create your own custom frosted glass film by adding your own text.
Glass film has many benefits. If your dog is constantly barking at the window, one way to stop it is by applying a band of frost to the glass to hide the view externally. Apply a band high enough so that your dog can't see out even when standing on it's hind legs.
Frosting spray is a quick and easy solution but the finish is patchy at best and once dry it's very easy to scratch. It is better suited for small hobby tasks rather than to frost a whole glass pane. Frosted film is a much better solution as it has an even finish, and is very durable.
Lesley Gornall left a new 5-star review of Purlfrost Window Film:
I purchased the plain frosted window film for my bay window at the front of the house. We live on a main road and passers by can't seem to help but gaze in, even when we give them a wave! This is an excellent way also to deter my dog from barking and jumping up at the window at dog walkers passing by and has considerably decreased barking at delivery people to ours or neighbouring properties. It was straightforward to put up, instructions were easy to follow and with two of us working together the whole project was completed in less than an hour. We have covered the centre two panes of a four pane bay at the moment and are trialling this regarding the barking, if necessary we may cover the remaining two. I am very pleased with the result, it hasn't interfered with light coming into the room, it is subtle and from outside is barely noticeable. A perfect quick solution to our problems which is convenient and affordable.
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.
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%.
You can use adhesive frosts externally, on the window facing side of a glass glass balustrade for example, and avoid direct contact with the elements if at all possible. We don't recommend static frost for exterior use as it is more likely to fall victim to high winds. We only offer a warranty for internal use but if applied properly the film will last for many years.
You won't be able to clearly see through the glass once frosted. Objects right up to the glass will be discernable, and anything half a metre away will be blury. The further away you are from the frost the less clear it gets.
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.
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.
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.
