BENEFITS OF ONE WAY WINDOW FILM
An Evowrap installation gives you the best one way vision window film to create daytime privacy. Available in a variety of colours. These one way films have the added benefit of reducing solar heat, glare and UV rays.
How does the process go with Evowrap.
HOW ONE WAY WINDOW FILM WORKS
One way window film has a reflective “mirrored” surface. This means that under the correct lighting conditions you can see out from one side. On the other side they will just see a reflection of themselves and their surroundings. this works just like looking in a mirror in your bathroom.
When the lighting is exactly the same on both sides you will be able to see through the film. It will have a slight reflection. You can see through it grom both directions. This can often be the scenario if you install one-way film to internal glass partitions.
Now, Let’s say that we upped the lighting on one side. The reflection on the brighter side would get stronger. So the person in the brighter room would get more of a reflection from the side they are standing on. The person in the darker room would get less of a reflection and see into the brighter room easier. It may not be a 100% one way vision effect but maybe closer. It may also offer better privacy depending on which angle you stand at. This is normally the way it works when the film is installed on perimeter windows but all the windows in the room are not coated
Now let’s say we put even more light in the one room. Now we have the lighting so it’s 3 times brighter. outside than inside. The person in the brighter room now can’t see anything but themselves and the reflection of the room they are in. The reflection is so bright that they can no longer see-through. From the darker side, they can now see through clearly. Because the reflection is so bright on the other side the reflection of themselves disappears or at least becomes more un-noticable. Instead they can see clearly into the brighter room.
FOCUS ON CONTRA VISION
On the day of the install you will be given a 1 hour time slot that the installers will aim to arrive in. 99% of the time wwe arrive in that time. the only time we would be late if there is a traffic jam on the way in which case we would phone you let you know. The installer will measure your windows first to make sure they are correct before cutting the film down. It’s a very clean job bit we do use quite a bit of water during the installation. We ask that you move as much as is needed to allow the installers access to the windows. Anything that can’t be moved they will cover. There’s no chemicals or smelly substances so you can go about your normal day without any hassle. We take all rubbish away with us leaving the property as we found it.
CAN THE ONE WAY EFFECT JUST WORK ON ONE DIRECTION ALL THE TIME?
In short, the answer is yes. The film always reflects the brighter area. So whichever is the brighter side will have a more mirrored appearance to the darker side. For a true one way effect you need a 3:11 light ratio. So if you affect the lighting conditions on one side of the glass so that it’s always three times brighter than the other side then you always get the one-way effect in the same direction.
WILL ONE WAY FILM WORK AT NIGHT?
When it gets dark outside the films one way vision effect will reverse. As it starts to get dark outside you’ll notice that the effect slowly reverses. The only way to make the film work at night is to increase the lighting outside so that it’s 3 times brighter than it is on the inside.
WHY IS THE MIRRORED EFFECT REVERSED?
If the one way mirror is the wrong way round or not working correctly it means your lighting conditions are not correct. You need it to be at least 3 times brighter on one side than the other. If you have a 3:1 light ration then you’ll get a one-way mirror. it’s less than 3 times brighter you may find that you can see through the film from both sides. if the one way mirror is completely the wrong way round then this means its much brighter on the other side. the only way to fix that is to increase the lighting on one side and/or decrease it on the other. Make it so that side you want to see into is at least 3 times brighter than the other side.
WILL ONE WAY PRIVACY WINDOW FILM MAKE THE ROOM DARK INSIDE?
This depends on the room. It will reduce natural light. Most customers find it’s a lot lighter than they expect. The only time that it’s normally a problem is when theres already very little light coming into the room. When there’s a lot of glass then it’s never normally a problem.
