I'm Looking For Both Daytime & Nighttime Privacy

If you are looking for night-time privacy, you’ll need a highly reflective one-way privacy window film.

One-way privacy window film is a thin poly material that incorporates many layers to control different properties of the film, such as UV light, glare and privacy while enhancing privacy. It also makes your windows more energy efficient by reflecting the suns rays. It also helps with glare on your TV and other screens.

How can it work at night?

For many homes, this answer is simple, get some solar-powered exterior lights that point directly at your windows. As long as it is lighter on the outside, you will have privacy.

One-way privacy window film is installed on the interior side of the window, this will allow the window film to last longer than if it were to be externally installed.

Can it create privacy between two rooms?

We would not recommend using a one-way privacy window film for room-to-room privacy, but it is possible, you’ll need to have one room a bit darker than the other for this to work.
