Window film is the ultimate, affordable solution to blocking out prying eyes or an unsightly view, without compromising the flow of natural light. As well as providing privacy, window film boasts a range of other benefits including the reduction of solar heat gain, glare and UV radiation. This can help offices, public buildings and houses to become a more comfortable environment with the addition of lower energy bills. Ausign is Melbourne’s trusted supplier of quality window film for commercial applications. Read on for our guide to using privacy window film for your business.
What is Window Film?
Originally used as an effective method of blocking the transfer of solar radiation, modern window film is made from vinyl or polyester, and is now commonly used for privacy as well as to prevent the transfer of heat into and out of windows. When professionally applied, window film emulates the look of frosted glass.
Where Can Window Film Be Used?
There are many applications that benefit from window films to control temperature, create privacy and meet regulations:
- Residential buildings
- Vehicles such as cars, bikes and boats
- Retail stores
- Warehouses and factories
- Cafes and restaurants
- Commercial bathrooms
- Entrances and balconies
Available in a range of colours and specifications, window film is an affordable privacy solution and can be cut to any design to provide full or partial privacy depending on your needs.
How Much Does It Cost?
Compared to installing frosted glass, window film is incredibly cost-effective which makes it an attractive solution in both domestic and commercial settings. Add in the fact that it is easily removable, it is the perfect choice for businesses who rent an office space. Window film can be quickly and easily installed and removed when required.
How Much Privacy Does It Provide?
When applied professionally, window film can provide maximum privacy or partial privacy depending on your needs. When applied to a full window, the most that can be seen is shadows.
If you require only partial privacy, you can apply to selected windows or half of the window area. Window film is an easy way to achieve absolute privacy and safety.
Is Window Film Long-Lasting?
If you choose high quality window film from a reputable signage company and have it professionally installed, window film will last many years. There are a range of window films manufactured that are of varying qualities so be sure to choose a signage company experienced in quality window films. It is important to remember that window film is often applied in areas that are subject to the elements, whether that is the harsh sun or moisture and dampness. Continual exposure to water and sun will take its toll and inferior films are likely to break down prematurely. Professional, high quality films come with a manufacturers guarantee and if applied correctly, should outlast the warranty period.
