Window Frosting – The Benefits

Privacy for office or home windows

the great benefit of the frosted window vinyls we offer at printdsign is that they can offer privacy to glass panel areas (be they windows or office partitions) whilst still allowing a large percentage of light transference through the glass. so unlike a window tint the window frosting vinyls give privacy to the glass windows without knocking out a large amount of light.

Reflective finish

another great benefit is that window tint films work using light transmittance. many of the window tint films we offer at printdsign have a reflective finish when viewed external , for privacy. unfortunately due to the way the window tint films work this means that the reflective privacy finish of the window tint film will only work if the light source outside of the window is stronger than the light source behind the glass.

The difference between window tints and window frosting

during regular daylight hours, the brightness of the outside world is usually overall brighter than the internal lighting inside a home or office. so the window tint films works well and offer a reflective privacy effect when viewed from outside. but after daylight hours when the sun has gone down, the external light source is usually less than the internal light source inside a home or office. at this time the reflective privacy effect of the window tints no longer works as the light transmittance is working the opposite way to what was required during the day.

Do you need window frosting or window tints?

this is where window frosting and window etching vinyls come in. by using a window frosting instead of a window tint you can ensure that privacy is given to the windows or partitions at all times, no matter if the light sources are brighter behind the glass. the trade off for this aded privacy is that the windows are now opaque and cannot be clearly seen through , but this the only way to guarantee privacy for your windows at all times.

Static Cling Window Vinyl

Our static cling stickers are adhesive free, meaning they can be easily removed and replaced within seconds. This makes them ideal for short term and seasonal promotions. We can supply static cling in transparent or opaque which can be digitally printed in full colour or simply cut to a desired shape or lettering. The material works both sides and can be fit on the inside or outside of the glass.

Self adhesive transparent & opaque vinyl is a perfect way to improve your window display. Offices, shops, car showrooms, retail promotions; the applications for these vinyls are endless. Our self adhesive window vinyls can be digitally printed, cut to shape or both. Our trained fitters can install the graphics for you and depending on the design they can be fitted to either the inside or outside of the window.

Etching Window Film

Etched glass effect vinyl can be used to add privacy, advertise you company in a sophisticated way as well as being fully compliant with health and safety requirements.

To comply with Health and Safety regulations large areas of glass have to be marked to prevent people walking into them.
We can supply and fit etched effect vinyl in a variety of finishes including frosted, crystal and fully printed. Our fitters and technicians will measure your windows to get the perfect fit on the inside or outside, they can then precisely cut the material to include shapes or text to promote your company’s products and brand.

Optically Clear Window Material

The ultimate material to transform your window into something everyone will be talking about. Our optically clear material allows us to digitally print a full colour high quality image onto your windows with the absolute minimum amount of diffusion from the material. With unmatched visual clarity and vibrancy this is the material to make an impression.

One Way Window Vinyl (Contravision)

Do you need to add some privacy to a window or do you need to hide an unsightly view into your premises? Then why not maximise that space by filling it with our one way contravision vinyl. From the outside the window appears totally filled with whatever design or image you choose, but on the inside the window is almost completely unaffected (the window appears to have a light tint to it).

This material can also be used on vehicles to add privacy and promote your business at the same time. It’s a great product for maximising your advertising space.

Rear Projection Window Film

A great product to give a real wow factor to your window advertising. Rear projection window vinyl is a specialised product that allows you to project any image or video onto your windows.

Other Window Graphics

We can also add privacy window films, tinted window films and solar window films to office windows, conservatory windows, etc.

All our window graphics can be changed or removed as often as required for customers who need design changes on more a frequent basis.

We can also add graphics to shop shutters, so you can be advertising even when you are closed. These graphics can as simple or as detailed as you need, from simple product advertisements to more creative ideas such as giving the illusion that your shop is still open, we can do it.

Anti vandalism vinyl can also be added to protect you shutter and any artwork from graffiti.
