Key Features

  • One-way daytime mirror privacy effect
  • High external reflectance; low internal reflectance
  • Massive solar energy & glare reduction
  • Clearer night-time view due to lower internal reflectance


Given correct lighting conditions, a reflective film can provide one-way privacy during daylight hours. A dark dual-reflective film will achieve the best possible effect, with a grey non-reflective surface on one side, and a highly reflective silver surface on the other. Blinds or curtains would need to be drawn after dusk to prevent this effect from auto-reversing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it expensive?

  • Solar Film - in a commercial context, it can pay for itself in as little as three years, based on energy savings on heating & cooling systems.
  • Safety Film - much less expensive than glass replacement, prevents damage to people, IT equipment/display stock, and prevents legal liabilities from injury caused by shattered glass.
  • Privacy Film - significantly less expensive than sandblasting, and can be removed/replaced.
  • UV Film - restoration from sun damage will be much more expensive; some objects are priceless.

What can window film do?

It can:

  • make glass shatter-proof
  • reflect the sun's heat
  • reduce winter heat loss
  • reduce glare
  • reduce fading and rotting of fabrics
  • provide frosted or one-way privacy
  • reduce energy costs and carbon emissions
  • provide a decorative effect

What is window film?

An off-shoot of interstellar travel over 30 years ago, it's essentially a polyester sheet, with an adhesive backing which bonds to glass. Sun-X has been applying window film since its inception, and even treating windows prior to this.

Will it have bubbles and creases?

No, not when professionally installed by Sun-X trained and highly experienced personnel. The clearer variety of films will even be invisible to the human eye.

Will it make the room dark of the windows mirrored?

Not necessarily. While dark reflective films will provide maximum heat reduction, there are now available some extremely effective 'clear' non-reflective solar films, making them ideal for listed buildings, or where high light levels are required.
