The film gives a mirrored appearance on the outside, the brighter side. One way films work just like a mirror you have in your bathroom. It has a silver mirrored appearance, and you will see a reflection of yourself and your surroundings. Other colours are available. These turn the silver mirror into a green, blue, gold or bronze mirror. From the inside looking out, you’ll see a tint. The colour of the tint depends on the colour of the window film you choose.
“Is the film hard to install?” is a common question that we get asked. It depends on the individual, but generally, you should find this relatively easy to install if you have decent DIY skills. One of the most common mistakes without fail is customers don’t read our instructions thoroughly and miss a step. All Evowrap films are self-adhesive. You won’t need any messy glue. It’s got a clear backing liner that protects the adhesive until you’re ready to install it to the glass. The procedure is a clean and tidy install unless your windows are filthy. You’ll need some simple hand tools and plenty of soapy water.
You can buy our film on a roll. Just choose the width you require and pick how many meters you need. You then need to cut the film to size. Now you have the option to choose to have your film cut to size. Choose what unit you’ve taken the measurements. You can select mm, cm or inches. Add the width and height of the pane of glass. Enter how many panes are that size. Add it to the basket and then continue this until all the glass you want to tint are in your basket. You’ll receive the glass film computer cut.
The film does have to reduce some natural light to create a privacy window. This is one of our customers biggest concerns. 95% of customers tell us “it’s a lot lighter than I thought it was going to be. I was worried it was going to make the room dark”. It indeed reduces the natural light. Think back to the last time we had a bit of sun, and you put your sunglasses on. It removed the natural light to your eyes, but you quickly adjust. After very little time you don’t even notice the tint on the glasses. The film works in the same way. The only time you may find that it makes the room too dark is if you only have a small window in the room. If there’s very little natural light already coming into your room, the film could make the room feel a little dark. If this is the case, you could opt for a frosted window film that lets in loads of natural light but blocks vision both ways. You won’t be able to see out either.
One way films create excellent daytime privacy. They don’t typically work at night, but some tips and tricks can make it work. You need one side to be three times brighter (3:1 light ratio) than the other side for the glass film to work. That’s unless you choose ultimate one way which only needs a 2:1 light ratio. When artificial light is on one side and sunlight on the other, you’ll typically find the film works well. As it gets dark outside and the lights are on inside the effect will start to reverse.
To make the film work at night here’s a couple of things you could do:
As with all window films, it’s better to install the film internally.
So, it makes sense to install the film internally. But what if you can’t install the film on the inside? If you can’t get to the inside of the windows, you can choose the external version. These usually have three years of warranty unless you choose a premium version with ten years of guarantee.
It’s essential to check the glass compatibility information on our products. These reflective window films reflect a lot of solar heat and also absorb some. This means that it can cause the glass to crack in extreme cases if you install it on non-compatible glass.
If daytime privacy just isn’t enough for you. Or if you have the wrong lighting conditions for a mirrored film to work then you have some other great privacy window film options.
All window films are excellent solar control window films. These can stop over 80% of solar heat and glare. They all block over 99% of UV rays too. These rays are the main reason that your furnishings begin to fade when they are near a window. Keep cooler, reflect dazzling glare, reduce fading and add one way privacy. There’s so much to love about an Evowrap glass film.
