4 Ways Privacy Window Film Can Improve Your Property

Understandably, many people may be worried about privacy where glass doors and windows are concerned. As modern and beautiful as they look, some may perceive having expansive glass doors and windows in their property as a little intrusive, with those on the outside being able to look in.

With the addition of a privacy window film, however, not having enough privacy becomes a non-issue.

Business and residential property owners alike can add a privacy window film to their glass windows and doors, and begin enjoying the following benefits of having glass doors and windows:

1. Increased energy efficiency

Glass windows and doors use the latest in available design and construction engineering technology. As such, they are likely to be highly energy efficient.

Still, the addition of an insulating privacy window film to save energy is even better. In this regard, adding energy-efficient privacy window film to the glass windows and doors in your property is an investment likely to continue paying for itself for years to come.

2. A modern and inviting design

Glass windows and doors are a great design feature to add to any property – residential and business alike. They can significantly open up any space, bringing in natural light and create an inviting indoor-outdoor feel.

Adding a one-way mirror tint can further add to the modern look, while opaque or frosted designs can add an extra design element as well as increased privacy. These seemingly small change in design element adds monetary value to a property as it is modern and in line with the latest property design features.

3. Exciting advertising and more attractive business property design

One of the great features of a privacy window film is the diversity it offers. Privacy window films are available in an unending array of colours, degree of privacy offered, and design elements. As far as designs are concerned, adding your company logo, tagline, contact information, or designs with your signature colours to your business storefront are great ways to use the versatility of a privacy window film to help your business make a bold statement. Be as bold as you dear.

4. Keep the outside in without the detrimental effects

A major concern of having glass doors and windows is the effects of the outdoor elements on the same, namely, the glare of the sun. The addition of a UV privacy window film is the perfect solution for this.

October is National Home Security Month

Did you know burglaries increase by 25% in Autumn and Winter months?

With the pressures of day-to-day life, home security is often overlooked. That’s why National Home Security Month (NHSM) is here to raise awareness around the importance of home security so you can be safe in the knowledge that your home, family and belongings are protected. Taking place in October, NHSM will be offering seasonal tips and advice to help protect the nation’s homes, families and possessions.

First launched in 2013, the campaign takes place every year in October and offers advice, information and support on how to secure your property.

National Home Security Month (NHSM)

National Home Security Month started 6 years ago because during Autumn and Winter there is an increase in crime!

Your home should be a place you take pride in and spend time with your loved ones. However, much like a castle needs to have defences in place from attacks, you need to make sure you protect your sanctuary from the threat of burglars.

This excellent campaign has been designed to highlight the importance of effective home security whilst promoting the fact that it does not have to be complex or expensive to install.

The team at WF Glazing Protection take the security aspect of our work particularly seriously and as such offer a range of products designed to help increase the security of your property.

Our invisible security films will help you to protect your flat-screen TVs, laptops and expensive possessions. By increasing the impact resistance of your windows and then holding the broken glass together, the film can help to delay and deter smash & grab crime.

Introducing The Squid Designer Window Film

Protecting your privacy has never been easier. Introducing Squid, a self-adhesive, transparent fabric which enables you to see out during the day, but largely restricts people outside from being able to look in.

Squid helps you keep your privacy while still enjoying your view. Passers-by can’t glare inside even though you’re still letting lots of natural light in and can enjoy looking out. This is unlike frosted film, which blocks your natural light and stops you from seeing through at all.

Offering a unique texture with a beautiful, natural feel, it is suitable for any interior or type of architecture due to its minimalism. Besides that, Squid is quick and easy to install. You can reposition Squid during the installation and it won’t damage your windows.

  • Easy For Any Window – Squid is easy to install without any fixtures or fittings. It can be used in any interior on any type of window, regardless of its size and shape.

Let your creativity run wild

Squid can also be printed on with a variety of printing techniques, giving signage creatives new commercial and marketing opportunities to explore. Its versatility and simplicity already have made it a big hit in the interior design and architecture markets.

Perfectly printable

The high-quality substrate is perfect for digital printing. We’ve realised some wonderful results with UV and ecosolvent and are exploring other technologies. Covering your window with fabric in the easiest way possible, breathing new life into homes, offices and public spaces.

Moisture and sun resistant

Squid keeps a lot of the sun’s heat out and it can withstand extreme humidity too. It’s also breathable, unlike plastic window-covering film, so it’s even suitable for HR++(+) glass. Tests have shown that, depending on which colour you choose, 25% – 36% of the sun’s energy is reflected and that it reduces the temperature by at least 3°C.

Multifunctional and customisable

Squid can be used on any type and shape of window. It can be plotted on digital cutters and can be seamless connected for XL surfaces. Squid sticks to the window indefinitely, but can be removed easily without leaving much glue residue.

Squid in action!

A massive thank you to Nottingham Forest European Cup winning legend John McGovern for being our first ever SQUID window film customer. An absolute gentleman and pleasure to do business with. Thank you John, your install looks great.

Another great example

New SQUID fabric film is a stylish, modern way of screening off existing windows. It is even printable with your company logo. A massive thank you to Country Home Interiors of Southwell for allowing us to demonstrate this within their showroom!!!
