Which film you choose will depend on your project or requirement, so read on for details of the range of window vinyls and films and what an application could deliver for you.

Window films and vinyls for privacy

Privacy can be required in a host of situations. Perhaps your lounge is on a busy street, your bedroom overlooked or your bathroom requires some shielding from view. Whatever the reason for your need for privacy, The Window Film Company offers a number of stylish and durable solutions.

Frostbrite frosted film is designed to give your glass the appearance of acid etched or sandblasted glazing. As soon as it is applied it will transform the appearance of your window to give it a contemporary frosted glass look, blocking the view from both sides of the glazing without sacrificing natural light. It is also long lasting and incredibly durable, including being resistant to moisture, making it the perfect choice for any room in the house - including your bathroom or wet room.

Frostbrite adhesive frosted film from The Window Film Company can also be ordered to feature stunning patterns. These designs can either be cut from the film to provide an appealing vision panel or, as the film is a perfect print ready surface, printed in brilliant white ink. Whichever you choose, your patterned Frostbite film is created cut to size, to your exact specifications, delivering you a unique, bespoke privacy solution, that looks far better than the usual net curtains, often used.

An alternative to frosted window films for privacy would be our one-way films for daytime privacy. once applied these films provide a reflective appearance on the external face of the glass, delivering a mirrored appearance for those on the outside looking in, while maintaining the view from the inside out. Please note that the window film works on the balance of light, with the side of the film exposed to the highest light levels taking on the reflective appearance. This is why this film is suitable as a daytime one-way privacy solution,

Coloured window vinyl

Coloured rainbow film

Available in a range of stunning colours, rainbow film will immediately change the colour of your windows - you can choose to use one colour or use a combination of shades to deliver a stunning stained glass effect. This type of film benefits from allowing excellent levels of natural light to pass through your glass, with the effect enhanced by the light taking on the form of the colour you’ve chosen. A beautiful and simple to achieve a way of adding interest to your windows and your home.

Solar reduction window films

Window film provides a cost-effective way of ensuring your home or conservatory doesn’t overheat. By blocking a percentage of the sun’s solar energy and stopping it from entering through the glass, solar control window film from The Window Film Company will help reduce excess heat and help maintain a moderate and enjoyable internal temperature.

The film is more effective than traditional methods such as curtains or blinds, as the film sits directly on the glass, bouncing away excess heat before it can enter your room and add to the internal temperature. Both blinds and curtains are set back from the glazing, allowing heat to pass through the glass before simply trapping it in place. Curtains and blinds will also block the view and natural light - window film allows for both to still be enjoyed.

Window vinyl and film for safety and security

Glass can be a fragile material if left unprotected and in the event of accidental or malicious damage, it can quickly become very dangerous. An application of safety window film from The Window Film Company can help mitigate these potentially serious situations.

Safety and security film works by holding the glass together in the frame in the event of accidental or criminal damage. By holding the broken pieces together, they are prevented from falling in on themselves and causing potential injury and damage. An application of film can also make it more difficult to obtain unauthorised access to your property by making the broken glass much harder to remove from the frame.

Safety and security is a serious issue so we always recommend talking to one of our experts to discuss your exact situation and requirements before proceeding with a purchase and installation.

To begin your install of adhesive window film, you will first need to thoroughly clean your window. Next, create a soapy water solution by adding a few drops of washing up liquid to a plant spray bottle full of water. Use the spray bottle to thoroughly coat the window. Then, remove the backing sheet from the window film and use the spray bottle to cover the entirety of the exposed surface. Next, slowly take the window film to the glazing and allow it to flow into place. The soapy water will act as a slip solution, enabling you to move the film until it is in the exact position you require. use the application squeegee to push all the remaining water to the edge of the pane and use a clean, dry cloth to mop up the excess.
