Techniques to Increase Window Privacy
So what exactly creates a high level of privacy? It’s the level of reflectivity and the darkness of the film. The other way is sometimes seen in translucency, which is basically that frosted effect.
And then of course, there are also films which offer complete opacity which turns the window completely dark. That includes mylar mirror films which turn glass into a window and aren’t see through. I’ll leave you details below about all of those options,
For many window films, the lighting conditions mean everything!
You need an extremely dark side and that’s the observation side that’s inside of the home, then you need an extremely shiny side, which is the side that shows outside of the home.
The advantage to using a very dark film is that it allows just a bit of transparency, so you’re able to see out but no one is able to see in, even at night!
The problem with cheaper films is that they’re usually designed for automotive use, which limits how dark they can legally go. You’re not going to get much privacy because they’re just too transparent.
A simple battery powered security light outside of the window creates additional glare on the surface, making it impossible to see through. The lights are solar, so they recharge during the day. At night, they turn on when sensing motion an additional “boo-yah” to scare those creepers away.
At night, the film still works because of the extremely high levels of reflection and opacity which reflects the ambient city glow and the street lights! During the day, it still works great simply due to sunlight creating glare on the surface.
