What is Privacy Film?
Privacy is essential for most people and businesses, especially in a crowded city or popular suburb. You want to feel secure in your space without worrying about who can see into it. Depending on your privacy needs, we have three main film options for clients who wish to improve their privacy.
Reflective Film (One-Way Privacy Film)
In short, reflective film provides a high heat-reduction window tinting solution at an affordable cost.
Reflective film is one of the most popular tinting options that commercial clients choose for their projects. Often, commercial projects are looking to conserve energy, lower cooling costs during summertime, and provide privacy for work areas during daytime. Reflective film is the perfect choice to address these concerns.
High Heat Reduction
UV & Glare Reduction
Lower Energy Costs
The dual-reflective film has a coating on the interior side of the tint that keeps it from being reflective like the exterior. Compared to reflective film, this design allows you to see out better and clearer at night from the inside, making it even more effective at providing privacy during the day. There is a wider selection of shade options with dual reflective film, which display a higher quality aesthetic color and feel to the material. We often recommend dual reflective film for residential projects, like tinting the windows on your home or other structures on your property.

Better Vision At Night
Decorative film is a window tint that has been enhanced in some way. It provides some privacy, but it usually changes the look of the glass through various frosting, tones, textures, and colors.
There are endless uses for decorative film. With over 300 different styles, there is an option to fit any project.

Privacy Film Tinting FAQ
What does the percentage on window tint mean?
The percentage is the amount of light that the window tint lets in. For example, if you have a window in your home or office with no tint, it’s letting in 100% light. When you apply a 35% film to the window, it’s only allowing 35% out of 100% of the light to come in. And, a 60% product will let in 60% of the light. The lower the number, the darker the film.
Is there a film that will allow you to see out day and night and give you privacy day and night?
At this time, no. They have not figured that out. We can give great privacy during the day, but at nighttime, once you flip your lights on, it does not work.
How long will the window tint last?
Lumar and Vista use the CDF adhesives, those films last upwards of 30 years if they’re maintained correctly.
What is the process from the moment that the customer calls? What do you expect each step to be?
We do an onsite free estimate where we evaluate the needs of the customer. During this time, we take a look at the job site, get measurements and show the customer samples of the tint. From there, we set up an install appointment where the crew will come out to cut the film down to fit each window. They use drop cloths and booties to protect the area during the cleaning and application process. We want to make sure that we’re respecting and protecting your property.
How long does it take to do the installation?
On average, not counting ladder work, it takes about 20-35 minutes per pane to install the tint, depending on the type of window. For example, a 3,000 square foot home, two levels will take one to two days.
How do I pick the perfect shade of window tint?
When picking out the shade, it’s all about what your needs are. Are you looking for heat reduction? Do you need privacy? Do you need glare reduction, fade reduction, etc? From there, once you’ve determined your needs, you can choose the best film type for you. Then, you can pick the shade of the film to determine how much light you want to let in.
