12 Popular Uses for Window Film

Window Film is a product which can be applied to the interior or exterior of glass windows and doors, for a variety of uses. These uses include: protection from solar heat and glare, prevention of damage or fading from UV exposure, deterrent against illegal entry, protection of glass against graffiti damage, injury prevention from broken glass, provision of privacy, or for internal or external decorative or aesthetic purposes.  Some newer window films can also improve the energy efficiency of windows through reduction of heat loss through your glass in winter, as well as rejection of heat in summer.

Window Film has moved far beyond just a simple shaded tint, with many great practical and creative uses, as well as a wide range of different colours and styles, according to the purpose of the film. Here at Complete Film Solutions, we have helped design and install window film used for a variety of applications, including many of the customised uses listed below.

Spruce up your front door with some decorative window film. A lot of homes are built with glass front doors, or glass along the side panel of the front door. To create an eliminate of privacy, you can choose a frosted glass film design that not only looks great, but also provides privacy for your entry.

Bathroom Privacy Film

Maintain privacy in your bathroom with frosted window film. Your external bathroom windows can be tinted with frosted film, so you still get the benefits of the natural light, without the need for blinds or shades. Your internal glass, such as your shower screen, can also be installed with frosted or decorative film, to breathe new life into the bathroom, while also increasing privacy.

Create Space in Your Office

With most offices moving to open plan, you can still create some privacy with frosted glass partitions. These don’t have to be boring, try using decorative film or branding the glass with your corporate colours or company values.
