Also known as Reflective Film, One-way mirrored film, Daylight privacy window film, Mirror Window Film is a Solar film with a reflective layer.Mirror window film allows you to see without being seen. In the daytime the one-way mirror window film will provide privacy, preventing passers-by from looking in but still allowing you to see through to the outside. From the outside the window will look like a mirror. In the night-time the one-way mirror effect is reversed so using a window blind is recommended. It works by reflecting images on both sides, however the side that is brighter creates the brighter image and this is what can be seen from both sides, one as a reflection (outside) and one looks like you’re looking through the film (inside).
The mirror window film also has solar control properties to reduce heat, glare and block out harmful UV radiation, this helps to reduce fading of interior furnishings.NOTE: If you have a light source inside the one-way mirror effect may be lessened. The film is not recommended if you are trying to achieve privacy between internal rooms or have a room that is backlit by other windows. Heat control solar window film deflects up to 78% of solar radiation and 99% of harmful UV rays. The mirror window film reduces the solar radiation and heat that comes through windows causing uncomfortable temperatures in areas with a lot of glass or in ‘suntraps’ such as glazed atrium, canopies and conservatories. Our mirror window film can deflect up to 78% of solar energy.
When the sun hits your window, the clear glass will only stop about eleven percent of solar radiation. The remaining eighty nine percent of the heat and energy is transmitted through your window.The mirror window film works by filtering out selected wavelengths of the sun’s infrared radiation using ceramic and precious metal sputtering technology, while maintaining a high amount of visible light transmittance, offering a clear view in and out through the glass.
