Types of specialty window films

Depending on their purpose, we have:

  • Anti-fog films — these can be applied on shower glasses, mirrors, refrigerator doors, or any glass surfaces that are prone to fogging, and they prevent this from happening;
  • Anti-graffiti films — they feature a protective coating that keeps vandalism away, and they are also more resistant in tough weather conditions, whether hot or cold;
  • Bird safety films — their purpose is to prevent birds from hitting the windows, which can lead to the injury or even death of the feathered creature, as well as the damage of the window. They are either tinted to make the windows more visible, or they are anti-reflect to not create the illusion of an open space in which birds may want to fly;
  • Rear projection films — these can be mounted on windows, storefronts, bars, clubs, show booths, and more, and then you will be able to project movies with great clarity and colors display;
  • Writable window and wall films — these films are able to transform any smooth surface into a writable board that is also easy to remove. They can be applied on walls, windows, and even desks;
  • One-way window films — they allow visibility from just one side, offering extra privacy during the day;
  • Temporary window films — they can be used for temporary offices or events, but also for homes in case you want to test things first before committing to a permanent film;
  • Decorative films — they come in a variety of colors and patterns, and they can make your home look much more interesting.
