When most people think about window film, they imagine a transparent film that blocks glare and heat from the sun in order to keep interior temperatures cool. We want to shine the spotlight on a different type of product called decorative window film, also known as frosted window film or glass finishes.
What is Decorative Window Film?
Decorative window films are different from most other window film products in that they intentionally draw attention to the fact that the glass is tinted for aesthetic and practical purposes. Decorative window film is a durable, flexible polyester layer with pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side. When applied to glass, it provides a similar look and feel to etched, sandblasted or textured glass at a fraction of the cost.
An additional benefit of decorative window film is UV protection. These films block up to 99% of ultraviolet light to protect your skin and reduce the fading of furniture, floors and belongings. Depending upon the specific product you select, decorative films vary in the amount of visible light that is transmitted, from 0% (opaque) to 88% (nearly transparent), so you can choose how bright you want your space to be.
These films can be applied to your existing glass surfaces to not only control light transmission, but also to enhance privacy and create new aesthetics. Decorative window films come in hundreds of patterns, designs and finishes, so you can select just the right facade and the desired level of privacy for your space.
Who Uses Decorative Window Film?
Decorative window films are used by homeowners, property managers, commercial property owners, interior designers, architects and contractors to enhance the visual appeal of a space or to afford more privacy. The effects of decorative film can be transformative, taking a room from conventional and stale to stylish and inspired.
How Do You Clean it?
There is no special maintenance or cleaning required and no additional hardware or infrastructure needed. A standard water-based cleaning solution will do the job.
Where Do You Apply Decorative Window Film?
The application options are endless. You can apply decorative window film to interior glass surfaces, including windows, partitions, private offices, conference rooms, ceilings, and lobbies, among other locations. You can completely revitalize and reimagine any space with little effort and minimal cost.
