The best one way privacy window film on the planet
Quite a bold statement and not one that’s said lightly. Ultimate one way is 33% more effective than a standard one way privacy window film. These traditional reflective mirror window films are great at creating one way privacy. However, Ultimate one way continues working when these classic glass films stop working. For most applications, the standard one way window film works perfectly well. Suppose you’re concerned that the lighting conditions may not be quite right (read below on why this is important). Or maybe you want the one way effect to work a little later in the evening. Ultimate one way is the right choice for you. It doesn’t just have a silver mirrored surface on both sides. Instead, it’s got a silver reflective external surface and smoked internally. This internal smoked tint keeps the film working when all others fail.
How does one way privacy window films work?
It’s crucial to read this before you purchase our one way privacy window film as there are limitations on how the glass film works.
The tint requires the outside of the window to be two times (2:1 light ratio) brighter than the inside of the window. Under these lighting conditions, you will get a perfect one way privacy finish. Most one way films need it to be three times brighter than the other side (3:1 light ratio)
- One way films only work during the day. When it gets dark out outside, and you have the lights on inside, the effect may be reversed. There’s no way, unfortunately, to have a one way effect that will work at night
- All windows in the room need to be tinted. Otherwise, the lighting conditions may not be correct. Sometimes the effect will work without tinting all the windows
The film generally doesn’t work on internal partitions.
- If there’s shade outside of the window, then the tint doesn’t always work as well

How does one way film look once installed?
The film will be a silver mirror on the outside. People trying to look in will see a reflection of themselves and their surroundings. When looking out, you’ll see a tint on the glass but will be able to see out clearly. Think of it like putting sunglasses on your windows. This is as long as you have the right lighting conditions.

Stop the sun from fading your furnishings
Have you ever moved a rug or sofa which is near the window? The space that’s left is an entirely different colour to the rest of the floor. This can happen all over the house. Wherever there are untreated windows, fading can occur. Ultraviolet (UV) rays are the leading cause of this. Ultimate one way stops over 99% of these UV rays. The other leading causes of fading are solar heat and glare which the film also blocks. That’s why Ultimate one way film can reduce fading by up to 60%!
