Frosted Window Film
This frosted decorative window film provides an attractive frost-etched glass look. It’s easy to apply to a smooth glass surface, low maintenance and doesn’t block out natural light.
Frosted glass window film also provides privacy at a fraction of the cost of glass. And with plenty of finishes, including sandblasted or etched glass, it’s no surprise that these window films have quickly become one of the most popular design solutions for commercial properties.
What is Frosted Window Glass Film?
By obscuring rooms and spaces from view without compromising on brightness, frosted window glass film is a durable and stylish privacy solution for commercial premises.
Frosted glass film is an easily-fitted self-adhesive film that provides privacy by giving glass surfaces the appearance of acid-etched or sand-blasted glazing.
How does Frosted Film Work?
Once the frosted window vinyl has been applied, the etched glass effect of the window film will obscure the view from both sides of the glass without sacrificing natural light.
Plenty of frosted film options are available, so browse our full range and find a stylish, contemporary style to suit your business.
Can You See Through Frosted Film?
Window films offer varying levels of privacy, so you can choose how much you’d like to be able to see through the window film.
Our range of low-privacy window films is suitable for meeting rooms with large windows or glass partitions where some discretion may be needed, but it isn’t a high priority whether the view through the glass is slightly visible. A frosted window film like the SX-1301 Clear Frost is a great option for obscuring direct visibility while allowing excellent light transmission.
When privacy becomes more of an issue, you may opt for a window film that emphasises the frosted window effect while letting plenty of daylight into the room. Our range of medium privacy film features a wide selection of decorative window film in patterns and colours to suit the unique style of your room.
We understand that some situations in a workplace may need complete privacy for safety, such as in a doctor’s surgery, for bathroom windows or within a higher security setting. Our high-privacy window films include a heavily frosted window effect. Browse the collection today to discover the details.
What are the Benefits of Using Frosted Film in a Commercial Setting?
There are many benefits to using frosted window film in your business premises.
Not only does it help you save money on energy by keeping your building at a more consistent temperature, but it can also help prevent glare on computer screens and potentially reduce harmful UV levels.
Can Frosted Glass Film Be Used on All Glass Types?
Window films can be used on any flat glass surface.
Does Frosted Window Film Provide Privacy During the Day and at Night?
Yes, they do. In daylight, they have a translucent appearance that obscures clear views while allowing natural light to filter through.
At night, the frosted film provides the same level of privacy as they maintain the same diffused appearance, which helps prevent prying eyes from seeing inside your premises.
Is Frosted Glass Film Easy to Install?
Installation is easy and can be carried out with a few simple tools (and also an extra pair of hands to make sure it goes smoothly).
Take a look at our step-by-step installation guide.
Can Frosted Glass Window Film be Removed or Replaced?
Glass film can be removed easily if needed but cannot be reused once it has been taken down.
Removing it is quite simple, but the film can be affected by how long it has been on the glass and how much it has been exposed to direct sunlight.
Will Frosted Window Film Damage the Glass Surface when it is Removed?
To remove the film, you can simply pull it from the glass. This may leave a residue behind, but you can clean this with soapy water and a scraper without causing lasting damage.
Will Frosted Window Film Reduce Glare?
Frosted glass film still lets through almost as much light as a regular window but is excellent at greatly reducing the amount of harmful UV radiation that comes through and nullifying the sun’s glare.
Does Frosted Film Offer any Thermal Insulation Properties?
Depending on the film you choose, it can dramatically reduce the heat entering your office or space. While in cooler months, they can act as insulation and help to reduce heat loss.
Can Frosted Window Film be Customised for Branding Purposes?
Our SOLYX iQ Bespoke Print films offer the functionality and exceptional quality you expect while allowing you to create something unique.
Whether you need a frosted film for privacy or want to proudly display your company logo, we will work closely with you to develop your vision and make it a reality.
How Long Does Frosted Window Film Typically Last?
Our products come with an industry-leading 5-year warranty.
However, we would expect your film to last longer than this with cleaning and maintenance.
Is Frosted Film Easy to Clean and Maintain?
Frosted films are low maintenance, so you can save valuable time rather than carrying out complicated cleaning routines.
Allow 30 days after installation for it to adhere properly to the glass, and then clean the film with non-abrasive cloths and mild soapy water when needed.
It’s best to avoid industrial-strength cleaners or pads that could scratch the surface.
Is Frosted Window Film Suitable for Exterior Windows or Only For Interiors?
We recommend that your window film be applied to the interior of doors and windows whenever possible.
Applying window film internally will allow for longer shelf life, and while there is external-grade film available, their exposure to unpredictable weather conditions means their performance will be at its peak for a shorter period of time.
Can Frosted Window Film be Used to Enhance Security?
You can use frosted window film within commercial premises to create visual barriers between desks, cubicles and offices – helping to prevent private information from being shared and ensure that certain areas in your space can’t be seen.
