Reflective Films, or otherwise known as One-way mirror film
Imagine the hot and bright sun shining through your skylight roof and into your room, causing heat rage, affecting your mood and state of mind, as well as the harmful UV rays that are damaging not just to our skin, our furniture, but also our family members! The cost of repairing such damages is normally much higher than installing window films.
Reduce sun spots, boost energy savings and protect your home from UV rays with reflective window films. These films have excellent heat and light rejection properties. The greater the difference in light intensity, the more effective the one-way mirror is.
Sticks on vertical or horizontal positions. The sticky side of the film is the reflective surface.
Suitable for both residential and commercial use: from glass panels to window panels to glass walls to skylight roofs.
IMPORTANT: One-Way Mirror Function Explained :)
The One-Way Mirror effect will only take place if there are light intensity difference between the 2 spaces.
When we apply the reflective film on the clear glass that is in your home facing exterior, during daytime when sunlight is bright, the reflective effect will kick in, thus providing shading effect plus reflective visual effect, enhancing privacy.
However during night time when the indoor lights are brighter than the exterior, people from the outside of your home will be able to see what is happening in the house.
If you have a glass partition in between 2 internal spaces; common for <office & corridor>, <shower area & bathroom>, <Exhibition space and Smalll event space cordoned by glass>
Chances are the internal spaces are all equipped with the same type of lighting, the light intensity difference is little. Hence the reflective effect of the film will not kick in. People from the other side will still be able to look into the space that you are trying to block away from.
If you have a direct neighbour opposite the glass panel that you wish to apply the film on, do consider this before applying as the reflected glare might poise disturbance to your neighbours, causing unnecessary disturbance/ dispute to both families.
