Window Film Square – Category Overview
With our square window films, each of the designs feature squares somewhere within the pattern. These can include large blocks of squares through to more subtle grid patterns, and even geometric designs. Our window films also explore a wide range of glass effects including etching and frosting, as well as stylised effects found in dichroic glass.
As squares have a structured, uniformed look, they create a timeless style when used throughout any residential or commercial interior. Therefore, it’s also possible to choose one of our square window film designs to match your existing interior look.
What Are Square Window Films?
It’s good to note that our square window films refer to the designs on the window film, rather than the dimensions of the film itself. When you look at the design, you will see an array of squares, which can be bold or subtle in their design. There may also be spacing between the squares, or the squares may resemble more of a mosaic look.
Our square window films may also feature different colours as well as glass effects for a truly customised look.

How Do Squares Help Achieve Privacy In Window Films?
Squares create physical blocks wherever they are placed on the window film. Wherever the squares appear, visibility through to the other side of the glass is reduced.
In some styles, the squares cover all of the window film featuring etching, frosting or even coloured designs. In other cases, the placement of the squares still allows visibility, but to a lesser degree than plain window glass.
Square Window Films – Each Pattern Explained
Not all square window film is created equal! What distinguishes each style from the rest is the patterns or glass effects that each window film features.
Whether you’re in search of a minimalist square window film, or one which packs plenty of personality there’s something to suit all preferences and environments.
Colourful (Stain Glass) Window Film
Real stain glass or even coloured window glass may look beautiful. However, it isn’t always a practical or cost-effective choice in residential or commercial buildings.
With our colourful window films, you can mimic the look of stained glass or colours within a square based design. Our coloured squares window film lends itself well to be used in a variety of environments, including for internal window glass.

Dichroic Glass Window Film
Dichroic glass is a specialist type of glass capable of displaying a multitude of colours including pink, green, blue, red, purple and yellow. Depending on the lighting conditions, the glass will continue to switch tones creating an ever-changing look.
With real dichroic glass being extremely expensive to produce, dichroic glass window glass film offers up a colour changing look in an instant. It’s particularly ideal for internal glass, including shower glass, glass partitions and office door glass. Likewise, it’s ideal for children’s bedrooms or playrooms too.

Etched Glass Window Film
Etched glass is a type of treated glass. A style that first became popular in the 1800s, etching involves removing a layer of the glass using abrasive chemicals or tools. The idea being to roughen the texture of the glass, for the purpose of adding artistic elements or gaining window privacy.
In modern times, the simplest way to achieve the look of etched glass is through an etched glass window film. Glass Films stocks a variety of etched window films, with this page category dedicated to square shaped etchings.
Fresnel Glass Window Film
Fresnel window films are based on the fresnel lens. The fresnel lens is a specialist type of glass often seen in lighthouses, spotlights or floodlights. The result concentrates the reflected light through a narrow beam.
The ability to mimic the fresnel lens within a window film is revolutionary, especially given no specialist glass production or installation techniques are required!

Frosted Glass Window Film
Frosted glass obscures the visibility through to the other side of the window glass. By adding squares, you can benefit from the look of frosted glass but within a stylish pattern.
Geometric Glass Window Film
Geometric designs allow us to draw up incredible digital patterns on a computer, and transfer these onto the format of a window film.
Taking your window films to the next level, our geometric designs include a range of shapes including squares. Geometric window films create a super contemporary look especially within office settings.

Gossamer Glass Window Film
Gossamer refers to a fine silk or a light fabric. Within our patterned squared window film, our gossamer style mixes the look of rice paper with decorative squares. The squares themselves have an increased level of opaqueness, with the background allowing some natural light to still shine through.

Pixel Glass Window Film
As yet another style which takes influence from digital art, our pixel glass window film mimics square pixels found on a computer screen. Made from prismatic crystal squares, the style still allows plenty of natural light through but with increased privacy.

Sandblasted Glass Window Film
Sandblasted glass is achieved by pressure treating the glass using high pressure and abrasive materials. Often, it involves blasting actual sand against the surface of the glass, with the aim of creating a frosted or textured look to the glass.
Mixing the look of sandblasting and squares, you can achieve the same effects of actual sandblasting but within a window film. All without the need to use harsh chemicals or tools. Plus the changes to the glass aren’t permanent, as the window film can easily be removed.

Square Window Films – Usage Ideas
Window films featuring square shapes and designs are suitable for a wide range of commercial and residential environments. This includes interior and exterior glass, depending on the specifications of the style you wish to opt for.
Here are some usage ideas for square window films to inspire your next project.
Commercial Interior Glass
Commercial environments can feature lots of glass, including window glass, glass doors, office glass, glass partitions, glass railings, glass whiteboards and more.
Squares create a neat appearance within window films. This means you can benefit from enhanced privacy in reception, office or meeting rooms. By the same token, square based designs will not detract from the professional look to your decor.
Residential Interior Glass
Any interior glass within your home can also benefit from window films with a square design. While you can also consider sleek designs that work equally well in a commercial setting, we also have window films which add colours and effects.
So whether you want to cover your window glass, shower glass or even glass found in your children’s bedrooms or playrooms, our square window films have lots of styles to choose from.
How To Choose A Square Patterned Window Film
When choosing any window film, it’s important to consider the environment, along with what you want to achieve within the properties of the window film itself.
For our square based window films, you’ll be achieving a distinctive look with a range of square shapes to choose from. But beyond this, it’s key to identify the level of privacy, and other top aspects that your window film should provide.
Interior Or Exterior
We have squared patterned window films suitable for both interior and exterior window glass.
Level Of Window Privacy (Low To High)
All window films have a level of privacy ranging from low to high. With any square designs that do not cover the whole film, the privacy may be reduced. In contrast, a full coverage design will typically offer higher levels of privacy.
Square window films can feature many different sized squares. This ranges from more subtle designs, to large blocks of squares. However, as you’re working with the format of a square, the designs will always appear uniformed rather than randomised, creating a neat finish.
Some square shaped window films also feature glass texture effects such as etching or frosting. Plus more stylised glass effects, including digital effects applied onto the window film.
Our square patterned privacy window films sometimes feature special colours. Often the colours are multidimensional to represent actual glass effects. Alternatively, you can opt for a clear glass effect without any statement colouring for a more toned down look.
UV Transmission Level
On each product listing, you’ll see a UV transmission level for that particular product.
Window Film Size
Select the size of window film you need, ensuring you have enough to cover your chosen window or door glass.
