Window Tint/Film/2 Way?
Posted 20 November 2011 - 11:37 AM
We want to get a couple of rooms in our place done with 2 way film. The stuff that you can see out of but not in.
Can anyone recommend any products and or installers in Sydney?
I know exactly squat about the topic.

As per all tints, if you are backlit at night you will be visible to some degree. The degree of visibility can vary from "clear as day" to fuzzy silhouettes.
My old apartment had Silent Gliss roller blinds installed. There were micro perforations in the weave of the Trevira textile that permitted you to see out during the day. Best was that you could not see in during the day or at night - even with all the lights on!

If you can see out during the day, others can see in at night.

From what TintAWindows told me, the privacy feature doesn't work at night, only during the day.
Which is a good thing for us peeping Toms..............wait..........did I say that?

I got the film online and installed it myself. You can get patterned films, or have text of your choice cut into the film. I'm now considering getting a couple of other windows opaque filmed as well.

I like the idea of electric glass but the cost puts me off every time!
Oh the stuff with the embedded crystals that goes dark when a current is supplied! Yes I like that idea, the cost must come down one day.... I hope...

FYI - we finally got around to doing this for the bedrooms......they've opened a new mountain bike track across the road and its causing issues.
Anyhow, really happy with it. Some rooms done in 50%, the north facing ones in 35% (similar to the darkest car tint you can get - legally). You cant see a thing during the day, its like a mirror from the outside, very reflective. Flip side is at night you need the blinds down as it works in reverse (basically whichever side has more light reflects)
Also had the car done - not sure why we never did it previously, only cost $170 and its awesome

But both sides go opaque when it's activated?
Guess I am a tough customer to please.
Just walk around naked for a few weeks in your home and they will soon put their shades down. Save you having to do yours.
