With its tinted and mirror-like finish, this film offers excellent efficiency in controlling heat and sunlight, making your home or office more comfortable during hot and sunny days. Additionally, it provides protection against fading for your artworks and furnishings.

Purlfrost offers adhesive reflective silver window film in three different grades: dark, medium, and light. We also provide a range of exterior window film options to suit your specific needs. Whether you have single glazed or double glazed windows and doors, our film can be applied seamlessly. Once applied, you will immediately experience the desired mirror effect. Our window film is highly durable, waterproof, and features a scratch-resistant coating, ensuring long-lasting performance.

Glare Reduction

Reflective films are an excellent solution for reducing excess glare and controlling the amount of daylight entering through your windows. These tinted films work like sunglasses for your windows, providing a protective shield that helps to minimize glare and create a more comfortable indoor environment.

By applying reflective film to your windows, you can effectively reduce the intensity of sunlight. The film acts as a barrier, reflecting a portion of the sunlight back out, while still allowing sufficient light to pass through. This helps to eliminate harsh glares and create a more balanced and pleasant atmosphere.

Reflective films are particularly beneficial in spaces where glare is a problem, such as offices, homes with large windows, or rooms with direct sun exposure. They offer a simple yet effective way to improve visibility, reduce eye strain, and create a more enjoyable environment for work or relaxation.

Heat Rejection

The mirror finish of our window film not only adds a stylish touch but also serves a practical purpose. It effectively rejects excess heat by reflecting sunlight, preventing it from entering the room through the glass. This feature is particularly beneficial for maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature during hot weather.

If your primary concern is heat rejection, especially for double glazed windows, we recommend applying an external reflective film. This type of film is more efficient at stopping the heat before it becomes trapped within the glass pane. By choosing the appropriate window film for your specific needs, you can effectively control heat and create a more comfortable environment in your home or office.

Daytime privacy

One of the advantages of the mirror finish on silver window film is the increased privacy it provides. The high reflective silver finish, especially on the darker films, effectively limits the view through the glass when exposed to sunlight. This makes such films a popular choice for office windows, but they are now gaining popularity among homeowners as well. Silver window film is used for one-way privacy, allowing you to see out while restricting the view from the outside. It can also be used to conceal valuable items, providing an added level of security.

However, it's important to note that the reflective mirror effect is dependent on sunlight and will not be effective at night when there is no sunlight available. As a result, the privacy benefit of the mirror finish is limited to daytime use..

Anti Fading

Our mirror films not only provide a stylish and contemporary look but also offer significant protection against the damaging effects of UV light. With a remarkable reduction of up to 99.9% of UV rays, our films help safeguard your furnishings, photographs, and timber floorings from fading and discoloration caused by prolonged sun exposure.

UV light is known to be one of the main culprits behind the deterioration of various materials. By minimizing the penetration of harmful UV rays, our mirror films act as a shield, preserving the vibrant colors and integrity of your cherished belongings. Whether it's preventing upholstery from losing its vibrancy or preserving the quality of your treasured photographs, our films provide a reliable solution to protect your investments.

Window tinting & loss of natural light

When using one-way mirror film for solar control purposes, it's important to note that there will be a reduction in natural light once the film is applied to your windows. To balance privacy and solar control while maintaining a suitable level of natural light, we recommend selecting a medium grade silver reflective window film. This film offers a combination of privacy and solar control, making it ideal for home environments. However, it's worth noting that the lighter grade film may not provide sufficient privacy as the mirror effect is more subtle in this case.

Ideal for conservatories

If you find that your conservatory becomes uncomfortably hot during the summer, applying a reflective film to the side windows and roof can provide effective heat control. For the side windows, you have the option of using tinted window film, which allows for a clear view both inside and outside the conservatory. As for the roof, a reflective film is recommended to maximize heat reduction. Additionally, we offer specific reflective films designed specifically for polycarbonate roofs, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility.

Practical window films

Window films offer great versatility with a wide range of options to choose from. One of our popular choices is the static cling reflective mirror film, which is perfect for temporary use, such as in rented accommodations or during the hottest season. This film does not require adhesive and can be easily applied in just minutes. What's even better is that it can be removed in seconds and safely stored for future use.

In addition to the static cling option, we also offer external grade reflective films. These films are highly efficient in reducing heat, especially when applied to double glazed windows. They provide excellent heat control and are a great solution for keeping your space cool and comfortable.

With our selection of window films, you have the flexibility to choose the right option that fits your specific needs and preferences. Whether you're looking for a temporary solution or a more permanent heat-reducing film, we have you covered.

Glass compatibility

When considering window films for solar control, it's essential to note that not all types of glass are compatible. It's important to understand the limitations and specifications of the films before ordering and applying them to your windows. One of the key considerations is compatibility with double glazed units, as certain films may not be suitable for this type of glass. To ensure a successful application, always check the product's specifications and recommendations before making a purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Which is best? Reflective or tinted window film?

    Reflective films offer superior effectiveness in preventing excess heat compared to tinted films. With their metallised coating, these films have the ability to reflect sunlight and heat away from the glass, resulting in a more comfortable room temperature. On the other hand, tinted films are equally efficient in controlling glare, but they lack the reflective finish and privacy aspect provided by reflective films. Internally, both types of films will appear similar, adding a grey-blue tinge to the glass, much like sunglasses for your windows.

  • How is reflective window film applied?

    Applying window film is a straightforward process that can be easily accomplished, even if you're a beginner.

    To start, you'll need to wet the adhesive side of the film and the glass using a solution of soapy water. This helps create a slippery surface for easy positioning. Once the film is placed on the glass, you can use a squeegee to remove any excess water and ensure a smooth and bubble-free application.

    It's crucial to clean the glass thoroughly beforehand to remove any paint or dirt particles that may be visible once the film is applied.

  • Is reflective film compatible with all glazing?

    The choice of window film depends on the level of darkness you desire. For single pane glass, any film will work effectively. However, when it comes to double glazed units, the selection process becomes slightly more intricate. If the pane you intend to apply the film to is toughened, then any grade of film can be used. However, if the pane is not toughened, you will need to opt for a lighter film option or consider using an external grade film. To ensure the compatibility of the film with your specific requirements, please review the product's specifications and compatibility data before making a decision.

  • Does reflective window film work at night?

    While mirror film provides a stylish and reflective appearance during the day, it's important to note that it doesn't offer privacy benefits at night. The mirror effect relies on a light source, typically the sun, to create the reflective surface. During the night or on cloudy days, when there isn't sufficient light, the glass won't have the same reflective properties. It's crucial to consider this limitation when choosing mirror film for your windows or glass surfaces.

  • How does reflective window film work?

    Reflective film combines the benefits of a tinted and mirror-like appearance. The tint helps to reduce glare, making it easier on the eyes, while the reflective finish serves multiple purposes. It effectively controls excess heat, keeping your space cooler and more comfortable. Additionally, it provides daytime privacy by creating a mirrored effect that prevents outsiders from seeing inside.

    One significant advantage of reflective film is its ability to block 99% of harmful UV light. UV rays are known to cause fading and damage to furnishings, carpets, and wooden floors over time. By reducing UV light transmission, the film helps preserve the color and quality of your interior surfaces, extending their lifespan.

    With its combination of glare reduction, heat control, privacy, and UV protection, reflective film offers a comprehensive solution for enhancing your living or working environment.
