Privacy window film provides a solution to privacy by blocking out prying eyes or an unsightly view, without blocking precious daylight. Contemporary apartments and office spaces frequently make the most of natural light and views outside by installing large windows. But those beautiful views and light filled spaces, while attracting potential buyers and tenants, can also cause privacy problems. In this blog we answer some common questions about using privacy film for windows and glass.
When many people think about window film and frosting they think of bland office partitions or a frosted window in a bathroom or beside a front door. But frosted window film has come a long way and is now used to create beautiful or bold design elements in residential projects, offices and other commercial settings.
Apply to Glass was proud to feature on Foxtel’s popular TV series, Selling Houses, recently. Hosted by Australia’s best known and talented interior designer, Shaynna Blaze, Shaynna sourced frosted window film from Apply To Glass to update and make improvements to a small cottage in Wollongong. The charming seaside cottage had a large garden, but prospective owners were put off by a lack of privacy to the kitchen and the garden from a multi storey apartment building that had been built on the adjacent block.
There is a misconception that all frosted film and window privacy film is the same. Window films come in different thicknesses, qualities of glue, and chemicals used in the final stages of production. All of these factors play a part in how long the window film lasts and how good it looks for the full period of its use. Cheap and standard films tend to peel and bubble after a short number of years. High quality films always look good and last for many more years.
