Privacy window film

Cut down on distractions and increase productivity while improving the look of your office.

For many companies, their office windows can be an overlooked medium for establishing an attractive and inviting atmosphere. Custom office privacy film designs such as etched glass window vinyls provide privacy and improve productivity. Employees of these businesses have more than just working space with which they identify themselves-they become part of the company's brand identity, too!

Types of Window Films

We all know how important it is to find the best window film for your business. There are a lot of options out there. It’s best to understand the different kinds of films available for windows before deciding which one is right for you.

Window films come in different types that can be more appropriate based on what you need from them. Some films are preferable if you’re looking for privacy, while others are better for visibility. Let’s take a look at the six most common types of window films:

Etched Glass Vinyl

Etched glass films look like - go figure - etched glass! They’re an affordable way to offer office privacy without the added cost of actually etching the glass panels of your office. Etched glass films can be imprinted with custom designs including logos, mantras or your company’s core values. Etched glass is the most popular interior office privacy film we offer.

Architectural Window Films

Architectural window films like 3M Fasara or the Solyx product lines offer distinct patterns and textures that standard etched glass vinyl just can’t emulate. From fades to complex markings, architectural window films have a wide variety of styles to choose from. These films will enhance the look of any office, regardless of size.

Opaque Films

Opaque films are not see-through. Because they’re solid they’re easy to see from a distance, making them a great advertising medium for businesses with large exterior windows. This is a great option for windows that get full sunlight, or for busy locations where passers-by might distract employees. We use an opaque window covering in our own office to reduce glare at the reception computer screen.

Perforated Films

Perforated films are a great choice for privacy because they only allow people to look out of the window, not in. They also provide an opportunity to use graphics and other designs, which can help draw attention from potential customers.

Translucent/transparent Films

Translucent films allow light to filter through but block visibility. They’re a great way to add a pop of color, if you want privacy but don’t like the etched glass look.

Transparent films are completely see-through. It’s the subtlest of the films, allowing you to see what is going on inside without having any obstruction blocking your line-of sight.
