A popular alternative to net curtains on terraced houses is to put frost on the bottom half, as we have done with these bay windows. We stripped off some degraded vinyl film which the owners had fitted themselves last year. We fit window film rather than the vinyl film often sold online. Our window film looks better than vinyl, and our film and fitting is guaranteed for 10 years.
We fitted a 20% tinted window film to the top half of these windows to reduce the headache-inducing sun glare for employees at desks around the showroom. The client obviously didn’t want to stop people seeing into the showroom from the outside, so we went for a charcoal 20 on the top half only, all the way around.
The white stripes you see on the windows are manifestations which were already there and required by law.
This was one of those jobs where being 6’8″ tall really came in handy.
We fitted this silver solar film to these offices and reception to reduce heat and glare.
We fitted this 20% silver solar film to reduce heat and glare through the large windows of this office. The privacy was a welcome additional advantage.
We put frost film on these four sliding glass doors to provide total privacy day and night, whilst not reducing the daylight into the room. Having frost means you cannot see in or out. You can however see out with silver film, which we applied to the single window here.
We fitted 35% silver film to these very large windows to reduce heat and glare. Total solar energy rejected by this film is 65%. In the below external photo the bottom two windows haven’t yet had any film applied.
We installed a 20% solar film to the roof of this conservatory to dramatically reduce heat and glare. The total solar energy blocked by this film is 80%. The photo below is halfway through the job, the windows in the top right have not got film on them, so you can see the difference.
We fitted 35% silver film for privacy on all the front facing downstairs windows of this home. 35% silver blocks 35% of visible light, so is more subtle than the more common 20% silver film. We usually recommend this more subtle film for home windows like this for aesthetic reasons. The film was fitted for privacy – an attractive alternative to net curtains. As a bonus, our film prevents the fading of carpets, upholstery, etc, as it blocks 99.9% UV. It also blocks around 65% of the sun’s heat.
