External grade reflective window film is designed to go on any flat glass surface and ideal where glass is not suited to internal film, or when internal access is an issue. You can also use it on glass banisters.Read More
Reflective window film (also referred to as mirror privacy film) is designed to ward off the sun's glare and heat and to keep your home, office or conservatory cooler. The medium reflective film is very efficient when it comes to controlling excess light, heat and glare, whilst mitigating the loss of visible light. It also helps with reducing UV light by 99%, and major cause of fading in furnishings.
As this film will be exposed to the elements, we highly recommend that you seal the edges of the film with a silicone sealant to prevent water ingress. Only apply the sealant once the film has cured to the glass, a process which could take up to 2 weeks depending on outside temperature.
How to order
You can order the film by the meter, or for ease of installation, cut to size. Unlike frosted window film which comes with a paper liner, this film comes with a clear polyester protective liner which has no metric grid printed on it. You'll therefore need a large flat surface, a straight edge and a retractable knife to cut the film to size, or have a quick look at our video tutorial which shows a quick and easy way to cut large pieces of film.
How to apply
The film is applied to the glass using a soapy water solution. Please click here to view our video tutorial, showing how to apply large pieces of film. The process is the same for small pieces of film which you will be able to apply single handedly.
* Visible light transmission
In most offices where the lights tend to be on all day, the loss of natural light is not a big issue. In a home environment, the loss of daylight might be more of an issue, and we would recommend this film on large windows, or in a room with several windows.
