When spring arrives in Melbourne, we love opening up our windows and doors and letting in the sunshine and warm weather. But as summer temperatures start to rise, we inevitably start to think about ways to keep our home and ourselves cool.
Frosted film window is commonly used on apartment balconies, glass pool fences and public facing windows to create privacy while still allowing the light to shine through. It provides a beautiful aesthetic and is a cost-effective alternative to frosted or etched glass.
Window Film To The Rescue
If you are buying an apartment or house, or renovating a house or commercial office, it is useful to have an understanding of the building regulations that can impact you and will effect any changes you make. In this blog we are talking all about regulations relating to windows, specifically privacy and safety. We will also be looking at how privacy window film provides an affordable solution for residential and commercial clients facing safety and privacy issues.
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.
Apply to Glass only use the very best frosted film materials. In particular, the 3M range. In this useful 3M video, the arduous task of removing frosted film is discussed and demonstrated. Great video.
