One of the best performing solar control and one way privacy window films on the planet. Quite a bold statement and not one that’s said lightly Ultra vista is the ultimate one way window film, it’s 33% more effective than a standard one way privacy window film. Add to that amazing protection against solar heat gain, glare and UV rays and your onto a winner.It’s special vista coating is specially designed to reduce internal reflection that you normally get with reflective window films. The traditional reflective mirror window films are great at creating one way privacy. However, Ultimate one way continues working when these classic window 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./em> The tint requires the outside of the window to be two times (3:1 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 (4:1 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. Ultra Vista 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%!

How to install

You can view our installation instructions by going to (we no longer send paper copies out in an attempt to cut down waste)



All our window films have a scratch-resistant coating. This is designed to protect the film from day to day contact however this will not protect against being knocked or scratched with sharp, hard or abrasive objects.

Please allow at least seven days for the film to fully dry on the glass before cleaning.


You should use tepid water with a little washing-up liquid to clean the windows once the film has been applied and either a window cleaning applicator, squeegee or soft cloth.

Please do not use products that are abrasive as this will damage the scratch-resistant coating.

Be careful when using window cleaning solutions.  Test on a small area first before using.

Hi, can I check this is applied to the inside of the window, not the outside? jo asked on 13 April 2024

Yes, this is for internal installation. We do have some window films suitable for external application - we have a version of the high reflective silver window film which has an external version

Hi, I'm interested in purchasing your 'One Way Privacy Window Film'. If I give you the measurements will you be able to cut the film out as required for me? I can just tell that its going to be a rather finicky process to complete myself. Tibs asked on 15 November 2021

Thanks for getting in touch. You have two options. If you click cut to size you can then add the width and length and the quantity of panes at that size. Then keep adding to basket until all the windows are added. Alternatively you can email over the sizes to and we can send over an invoice for the total. You can also call us on 0800 107 7965 and give us the measurements but we would need to email you and get a confirmation back to let us know the sizes are correct so emailing us or using the cut to size form would be the simplest options.
