Mirror Type One Way Film for Safety and Security

One way window films are also known as one way mirror film, one way mirrored window tinting or one way vision films. With this type of privacy film, you can enjoy the view from inside without being seen. This reflective one way film limits visibility by up to 99% which is an excellent choice for commercial buildings where you want to maintain privacy but still be able to see outside.

This mirror type one-way window film is one of the most popular one way films used for security and safety across a wide range of applications. It can be used in private homes, commercial buildings and even in automobiles and car windows to prevent vandalism and car theft.

The mirror effect can be achieved both during daylight hours when there is ample lighting on one side of the reflective surface and nighttime conditions with well lit surroundings that provide enough light for illumination on one side of the glass.

There are two types of  one way mirror films. One way glass film with one reflective layer reflects light back from the side where light originates and allows it to pass through on the other side without reflecting it back. With one way mirror window tinting that has two layers, both sides reflect visible light but one also permits infrared energy (IR) to pass through while the other only reflects IR energy. As a result, one way window film tinting helps prevent fire while providing one-way visibility at the same time.
