Privacy Window Films

Contra Vision® Privacy Window Films™ are an attractive and clever way to hide the view into rooms, with applications in the home and at work. The one-way vision from inside the building is excellent and natural light is allowed into the room. 

An added benefit is a reduction in solar heat gain, glare and UV radiation. This can help offices, public buildings and homes to be more comfortable living environments with lower air conditioning costs.

Our perforated films are very easy to apply to windows because air bubbles do not get trapped underneath. Instructions and an applicator tool are provided.From the inventors of one-way vision graphics over 35 years ago and recognised with a Queen's award for innovation in 2015.

Perforated window films for daytime privacy

Contra Vision perforated window films appear white when viewed from outside and have a black tint (see-through) appearance when viewed from inside. Our standard "black on white" window film, for application to the inside of the window, provides excellent daytime privacy. Blinds or curtains are still needed to maintain privacy at night.

Unlike conventional window tinting, reflective or mirrored window films, Contra Vision®  Privacy Window Films do not block the view outside at night (these other films become mirrors at night when looking from the inside). Contra Vision® Privacy Window Films™ also avoid the dazzle and uncomfortable glare from reflective/mirror films when viewed from the outside and help to minimise bird collisions

Night Time Privacy

If night time privacy is important then we offer a product variation which is translucent white from both sides (the view from inside is more milky compared with a black backing). This provides good privacy during the daytime and some privacy at night depending on the lighting arrangement inside the building. If you are looking for 100% privacy then blinds or curtains are still needed.

Etch or frosted films

Etch films come in many different varieties and in a range of quality. The films are guaranteed to provide privacy inside rooms but they also block the view outside (2-way privacy) although some daylight is allowed into the room. This is the best option for bathrooms where 24/7 guaranteed privacy is essential and the view outside can be sacrificed.

The film is a little tricky to install because unsightly air bubbles can get trapped.

Reflective/Mirrored Films

Reflective films give a shiny metallic look to the outside of buildings. This can be an attractive feature when coupled with modern architecture but the reflected dazzle/glare can create issues including an increase in bird collisions.

The films provide very good one-way vision privacy during bright daytime conditions and significant solar control benefits in terms of keeping rooms cooler in hot climates. Unlike other reflective window films, Contra Vision Reflex is not reflective on the inside and does not turn into a mirror at night for people inside buildings.

Again the films are a little tricky to install without getting air bubbles trapped underneath.
