Privacy Window Film

Contra Vision® Privacy Window Film™ offer an attractive and clever way to hide the view into rooms. The window coverings appear white from the outside, giving your home or workplace a clean, modern and elegant look.

From inside the one-way vision looking through the window is excellent and abundant natural light is allowed into rooms. For people who care about their privacy but at the same time want to keep their environments stylish and bright.

Our white perforated window films offer many benefits including preventing bird strikes, reducing external reflections and glare, solar control including a reduction of solar heat gain and UV radiation inside buildings, and a reduction in ghostly internal reflections at night. We also offer a solution which gives some privacy at night (Contra Vision® White 24/7 Concealed Vision™) although blinds and curtains are still needed to guarantee privacy.

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 recognized with a Queen’s award for innovation in 2015 and again in 2020.

*Privacy products for DIY customers are only available in the UK.

Do one way privacy window films work at night?


All of our one-way vision products allow people to see out of windows both day and night. They also allow daylight into rooms, so people benefit from privacy without being shut away by blinds or curtains, enabling a healthy working or living space.

During the day they block view into a building, but depending on lighting conditions, at night time we recommend the use of blinds or curtains for total privacy.

What other benefits are there?

Privacy Window Film for the home

In the summer, our window covering films help to reduce glare and heat gain inside buildings, placing less demand on air conditioning units, which minimizes energy usage and consequential CO2 emissions. In the winter they help with heat retention. The overall effect is a more comfortable working and living environment which is better for the planet.

Other Privacy Window Film FAQs

By applying Contra Vision perforated window film to your window, you will still be able to see out, and the white face film obscures vision into the building. For those standing outside the windows would appear white, this is because the eye is drawn to the white material which reflects light. From inside, the tiny perforations in the material allow you to see out and let daylight into the room.

You can apply Contra Vision perforated window film (or Contra Vision Mirror View) to your windows to provide privacy. These products still allow light into your home and maintain a clear view-out for occupants inside.

Whilst curtains and blinds are the most obvious answer, if you’re looking for something that will maintain the view out then you should use Contra Vision micro-perforated window film or one of our specialist privacy films. Our micro-perforated window films appear white for those viewing the window from outside and occupants on the inside will have a clear view out. This is due to the reverse being black and the eye is drawn to the outside.

You can make your windows private without curtains by applying Contra Vision Privacy Window Films to your windows. We have one way vision films, mirrored, geometric and frosted films available depending on your privacy requirements. All of which can be applied by yourself or by a qualified installer.

We have privacy window films available that can be applied to the inside or outside of windows. 

Our white on black micro-perforated film has adhesive on the black layer allowing for external use and our black on white micro-perforated film has adhesive on the white layer allowing for internal use. Whichever micro-perforated film you chose the window will appear white. 

Our two-way white micro-perforated film is white both sides and can be applied to both the inside and outside of a window.

The History of Contra Vision Privacy Window Films

Our invention in 1984 started a new type of advertising which spread across the world, making the Contra Vision® brand a byword for one-way vision window graphics.

After seeing massive demand, we extended our range to cover the Privacy Window Film market. You will find excellent one-way vision privacy products including our core perforated range with the smallest ever holes, for the clearest see-through experience from inside buildings. In addition we offer novel frosted and decorative films for two-way privacy as well as privacy glass film.
