Our one way mirror privacy window films are mainly designed for anti glare and heat rejection. But thanks to the reflective quality of the films, they have the added bonus of offering daytime privacy by reflecting sunlight, thus turning your windows into virtual mirrors. Ideal for home or office.

Please beware that the Dark grade films are only suitable for single pane glass, or double glazed units when made of toughened glass.

What is one way mirror film?

One way mirror film is a reflective window film, manufactured with a very thin layer of metal sandwiched between an adhesive layer and a protective layer. These types of films where primarily designed as solar control films for glare and heat reduction, as they are very efficient in that respect. 

How does the film work?

Put simply, once film is applied, the mirror effect occurs when sunlight reflects off the window. As a rule, the darker the film, the better the reflective effect is, but the more natural light will have to be sacrificed.

What are the limitations?

The main principle is that the light level internally has to be less than the light level externally, making this product only suitable for daytime privacy. So if your windows face North or if there's a lot of shading due to trees or other buildings, it is unlikely the film will work to it's full effect. And at night, the film will have no reflective quality and therefore offer no privacy from the outside.

Can the film be applied to any windows?

There are some restrictions when selecting the dark films which are explained in more detail on the products pages, so if in doubt, select our medium one way mirror film which is ideal fo all types of glass, mitigates the loss of natural light and is still very effective.

I only want to use the film for a short period of time

Then we have the perfect product for you. Our static cling one way mirror film is non-adhesive, can be applied in minutes and removed in seconds. And if you keep the clear liner the film came with, it can be re-used at a later stage.

Is window film easy to apply?

All our films are supplied with a free application tool and a full set of easy to follow instructions. Feel free to view our video tutorial for tips on how to apply small and large pieces of film.

Is there a one way mirror film that works at night?

Unfortunately not. For 24h privacy, you would be better of with a frosted window film or patterned window film.

Will the film work internally, to create a one way viewing room for example?

Yes it will but for this to work you'll need to experiment with lighting as the idea is that the viewing room should be much darker than the room being viewed. In some cases, a double layer of film is required by adding a dark tinted film.
