Execellent. Worked as expected. You really cannot see from outside and it does reflect well during the day. This is used in an office so dont care what happens at night time

One-Way Perforated Vinyl Privacy Window Film Adhesive Glass Wrap Roll (1ft x 54″)
I applied this film 4×6 foot windows in an attempt to reduce room heat in the New Mexico High Desert. The film works well. I measured 56% of longwave flux rejected (using a hot mirror with a 700nm cutoff and a photometer) with near 34% visible band transmission.
Allows easy viewing of scenery with very noticeable heat reduction. My conclusion is that the film works as well as, or better than advertised. I didn’t do a UV comparison as my window glass already reduces that component.
My only issue was that getting all of the bubbles out during application. This can be a bit tricky as you need to work quickly. Application becomes easier with more liberal use of film application solution.
Also follow the directions in sizing the film. Too much oversize can cause problems in clearing bubbles. … full review

Gila Privacy Black Static Cling Residential DIY Window Film No Glue No Adhesive 3ft x 6.5ft (36in x 78in)
It’s not perfectly clear, so you view looks a little distorted, but it is so much better than nothing. Horrible glare from sun through all my windows, costing me money, making me squint, and making TVs and computers uncomfortable to look at.
Problem solved! I have this on three windows already, with plans to do the rest. I have Fibro and put it up myself. If I can do it, just about anyone can. No special tools or solutions, just plain water, an exacto knife, scissors, credit card for bubble removal, and a straight-edge.
The first window was a learning process, the rest have been much easier and I have it down to a science. Got the last window done today, very quickly.Bought on impulse elsewhere and was sure I would never get it put up.
Glad I did, and I’m getting more.
I read, then read again, then read again all the reviews and “instructions” from fellow reviewers on how best to apply this window film. Thank you to everyone who ever posted their secrets as we applied this to 3 windows, 2 patio sliders without a single hitch.
As many have stated even small windows are a 2 person job. I made my husband watch the video on the Gila website so he knew exactly what I wanted him to do. The secret is to keep the film wet, and I mean soaking wet.
So wet in fact the liquid drips off of it – but that is what made our work a total success. We bought the application kit and a small squeegee and refilled the spray bottle with our own mixture as others have done.
The film slicing tool lasted for all … full review
I live in an apartment that has a huge window that faces out onto a busy road and walkway. There is nothing worse than sitting on your couch and looking out your window to see people staring at you as they walk by.
LOL I had to do something LOLAfter spending some time browsing different products, I decided on this (DC Fix 3460276 Pearl Self-Adhesive Window Film) as well as bought some frosted glass spray.I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this came out on my windows!! And loath the frosted spray I bought from another company.
It stank (fumes) and did not come out the desired effect. This self-adhesive window film was well worth it!!! 🙂 Here’s some tips. First make sure you have a measure tape, pencil, razor blade, and a squeegee ( I found a bathroom type squeegee at rite aid for $1.

BDF S35 Window Film High Heat Rejection Reflective Silver 35 (Medium) – 36in X 12ft
If you follow all instructions and use all tools available and use two people (at least for your first time), this is an easy and quick project. However, just plan on ruining the first one you attempt.
Once you mess up the first one, you can get a good system down. My wife and I were able to do two windows in an hour (after throwing the first one away because it curled around and stuck to itself) and the second one was a breeze.
1st – Use two people unless it’s a very small window or you’ve done this before. The hardest part is getting the film from the cutting table to the window because it tends to stick to itself. Keep all 4 corners held at all times and use plenty of spray.
2nd – Buy the installation kit that you can get … full review
I have 8 sliding doors in my home and I really needed to find tint that would reduce the amount of heat being transmitted. Although my sliders are 8 ft tall this film was relatively easy to apply. No bubbles and no scratches.
At first I received someone else’s order but once I contacted the company they immediately responded and offered to expedite the correct order. Overall, the film applied better than expected and I look forward to purchasing more.
Just what I needed to survive this SoCal heat!

Love this! Let’s all the light in but you can’t see what’s inside or outside which is perfect! Set up took less than 15 minutes!
GREAT Window Film… I just received it today and already on…( I did this by myself in less than 1 hour from start to finish) I have a glass front door with a black iron decorative frame and I leave my front door open most of the time, but I have nosy neighbors and I want the privacy from anyone walking up.
This was a easy to install, I read the instructions first and did my prep work. I cleared off my dining room table and placed the film to cut, went to measure the door and came back to cut and left 1/2 inch on the side and bottom.
after washing the window I placed a piece of tape on each side of the corner and then laid the cut film on the floor by the door, sprayed the door with soapy water and also the film, pealed back … full review
‘ i received this product at a discount for my honest and unbiased review. i was not influenced by anyone in any way.I am trying to cover my windows in my attic. I want the windows to look nice, blocking the view of the wood inside that the house was built with.
But I also want there to be light coming through as well, not dark inside. So, I thought about getting window vinyl decals. You get the light still coming through, yet, the windows look dressed up and not so blah.
I like this pattern too. It was very easy to install. I’ve had issues taking the backing off from others that I got, but not with this one. The backing had little effort to remove. My only issue was cutting it to the size of my window.
Oh boy, that was a challenge for me. Not … full review
