Window film is a self-adhesive polyester film that is applied to glass surfaces. It is used as a “retrofit” application for existing glass on automobiles, homes and commercial buildings in order to upgrade solar control, safety and appearance.

How to care and maintain?

Once window film has been installed, it is very common to see a slight haziness and/or small water pockets. This is a normal part of the adhesive bonding process called “curing”. Depending on the film type and weather conditions, it may take up to 30 days for the film to be fully cured. The curing process is slow because the remaining water used in installation must evaporate through the film. Sputtered and heavy security films take the longest to dry and will take longer for any hazy appearance to disappear.

SFF, a Window Film Company Durban offers two types of privacy window film, which are available in a wide range of finishes, here is how they differs:

  • Daytime one-way privacy

Daytime one-way privacy can be achieved with an application of a reflective window film. The film appears reflective on the brighter side of the glass, which is always the external side during daylight hours, thus preventing vision thru the glass. The view from inside out is maintained. Reflective privacy is suitable for both internal and external application, however a light balance ratio of 3:1 (light to dark) is needed for optimum performance.

  • Full Time two-way privacy

Two-way privacy can be achieved with an application of our frosted range of films or solid colour vinyl. The frosted window film will give your glass the appearance of acid etched glass, preventing vision both ways whilst still allowing high levels of light to pass through the glass. Their frosted vinyl can be computer cut or printed to take the form of patterns, logos and even artwork or designs which help create a truly bespoke privacy film.
