Reflective window film gives your windows and doors a mirror finish when viewed externally, and a light grey to dark grey finish internally. Silver window film is primerally designed for heat and glare reduction, but thanks to it's mirror like finish, mirror window film also helps to protect your security with enhanced daytime privacy, without losing all your natural light. Our heat silver mirror window films are available off the roll by the metre, or cut to size to your exact measurements.Read More
Silver reflective mirror window film is thin material which is applied directly to your window or door, on smooth non textured flat glass. Thanks to the tint and mirror finish, these products are very efficient solar control window films and will help make your home or office more comfortable on hot and sunny days.
Purlfrost's adhesive reflective silver window film comes in 3 grades (dark, medium and light), a range of colours and exterior options, and can be applied to single glazed or double glazed windows and doors. Once applied to glass, the mirror effect will be immediate.
A beneficial benefit of the mirror finish is the enhanced privacy. On the darker films, the high reflective silver finish when combined with sunlight will restrict the view through the glass. These types of films are very common on office windows, but home owners have now starting to use silver window film for one way privacy, or to conceal valuable items for added security. Unfortunately, the reflective mirror effect will not work at night due to the lack of sunlight, and therefore there will be no privacy benefit.
As one way mirror film is a tinted film designed for solar control, there will be a loss of natural light once applied to your windows. A way to mitigate for this is to select a medium grade silver reflective window film which will still combine both privacy and solar control, but at a level that is more suitable to a home environment. The lighter grade film is not suited to privacy as the mirror effect is more subtle.
Window films are very versatile and come in a variety of options. We have a static cling mirror window film for temporary use, in rented accommodations for example, or to use only during the hottest days. This non adhesive solar film is easy to apply in minutes, remove in seconds and if kept safely can be re-used. Other products in the range include coloured reflective film, external grade reflective film and copper reflective silver window film.

Reflective films tend to be much more effective than tinted films at preventing excess heat. Thanks to their metallised coating, they reflect sunlight and heat away before they penetrate through the glass making the room more comfortable. Tinted films are just as efficient when it comes to controlling excess glare, but without the reflective finish and the added privacy aspect. Internally, both types of film will look very similar adding a grey blue tinge to the glass. Like sunglasses for your windows.
It all depends on how dark a film you require. For single pane glass, any film is suitable. It gets a bit more complicated with regards to double glazed units. If the pane you are applying the film to is toughened, then any grade of film is suitable.Otherwise you will have to select a lighter option, or an external grade film. Please check the product's specifications and compatibilty data first.
Unfortunately, mirror film doesn't offer any privacy benefit at night. For the mirror effect to work, you need a light source to shine on the glass, i.e the sun. At night, or on dull days, there just isn't enough light for the glass to be reflective.
Reflective film has both a tinted and mirror like appearance. The tint reduces the amount of glare whilst the reflective finish helps control excess heat and adds daytime privacy. It also stops 99% of UV light responsible for thefading of furnishings, carpets and wooden floor.
