Solar 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 a good choice when it comes to controlling excess light, heat and glare, with a limited loss of natural light. It also helps with reducing UV light by 99%, and major cause of fading in furnishings.
Can it be used for privacy?
The reflective quality of the film will also offer varying levels of privacy, when used on exterior facing windows. The darker the film, the more reflective it is, and the more privacy it will offer.
The privacy effect will only work during day time hours.
Where is the film most effective?
As a rule, we recommend the darker films for south facing windows, where the sun is harsher.
East facing windows will be exposed in the morning, when the sun is low, and west facing windows in the afternoon when the sun is high, but brighter.
For east and west facing, we recommend both the dark and the medium films, depending on how exposed your windows are to the sun.
North facing windows shouldn't be too affected by the sun.
How to order
You can order the film by the metre, 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.
Small panes are easy enough to do yourself. Use a soapy water solution and the provided application tool. All our films are supplied with a set of easy to follow instructions. For large panes of glass, we recommend 2 people. You would also need a larger application tool available here.
If DIY is not an option, we offer a professional window film installation service covering London and most areas within and around the M25. If you'd like a quote, please contact us
. We will need your billing name and site address, an idea of the number of panes and approximate sizes, and some pictures if possible.
Clean with a soapy water solution. Do not clean for at least a month after installation and do not apply any type of sticker or adhesive on the film.

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.
