Films for Glass Doors and Windows – Frosted film and Sun control film
Most of the multi-storey buildings are exposed to direct sunlight during daytime and they need heat control in an efficient way. For this purpose, frosted film and sun control film are applied on the glass windows and sliding glass doors to control excess heat coming inside the hall and bedrooms. We have done glass privacy films and sun control films for many commercial buildings and very wide range of residential apartments throughout Chennai. Some homes also need fully blocking out the UV rays and blockout films are used for that purpose. Blockout films are completely black and prevents all the sunlight and heat coming inside. They are mostly used in hospitals and beauty parlors. They are the best heat rejection films if you don’t want to see through the glasses.
They also need privacy as they are built with glass partitions and windows. For reducing heat from the sunlight we use reflective or refractive sun control film and also frosted or etched glass film. For privacy we use frosted films which are available in different colors and textures.
Wallpapers are used to decorate interior walls with floral images or textures with different colors. Rather than plain painting, many prefer to apply wallpapers to give classy and rich looks to their interiors.

The tint levels are 50%, 70% and 90% and your can choose the right tint levels based on your visibility requirement and location of your windows and doors.

3 . What is the main difference between frosted film and sun control films ?
Ans: Frosted film provides privacy both in day time and night time. Sun control films provide privacy only during daytime. Frosted films are available in different colors and textures. Sun Control films are available only in plain colors. The sun control capacity of frosted film is slightly lesser than the sun films. Frosted films block 85% UV rays while sun control films block 99% UV.
4 . What are the types and brands of frosted film available for residences ?
Ans: We have brands such as Fplus, Qplus, Mckal and 3M. 3M frosted films are thicker than other frosted films and they have high durability. The types of frosted films are plain, misty white, shiny matte, designed and 3M.
The designed frosted films are of two types
1. Semi Frosted – You can see through transparent gaps in the frosted films. It provides you semi privacy. eg. Lines and square patterns. Mostly used in commercial stores and offices for partial privacy and manifestation. Commercial stores use semi frosted films to just avoid people from hitting the glass doors. So they use semi frosted films. They won’t normally use full frosted films as full frosted films would cover the glass portions completely.
2. Full Frosted – You cannot see through any part of the film, as the film fully covers the glass portions. It is best suited for privacy and have many colored designs for. eg. residential windows and doors in bedrooms and hallways mostly use full frosted films. Full frosted films are mostly colored design patterns.
5 . What type of frosted film is suggested for commercial indoor glasses ?
Ans: Commercial glasses mostly use frosted films for manifestation. Here you mostly don’t need frosting for full doors or glass partitions, either the glass frosting is done halfway or in the middle of the glasses, so that no one will accidentally hit the doors.
Commercial glasses can also be used as space for branding rather than left as plain glasses. You can use the glass portions effectively by printing the glass films or cutting with letters, logos and images. So when the clients enter your office or stores, then the printed or cut films act as branding media on your glasses. You can display your logo, tagline, products or services by printing or cutting on the glass films or frosted films
6. What are the types of commercial outdoor tinting ?
Ans: Commercial outdoor areas have large curtain walls made of toughened glasses arrayed together to give a nice glossy out look. Most of the outer area of commercial buildings with large glass partitions look blue due to blue tint and glass panels of some buildings have green color due to green tint. Some commercial glasses are tinted during the manufacturing process. So they give the sun protection without using sun film.
Some commercial glasses are plain and you need to apply sun control films in order to protect the interior of your buildings from extreme heat. Normally plain glasses have the capacity to pull the heat inside the buildings and so glass window tinting is best way to protect the interiors from extreme heat.
The types of window tinting include reflective window tinting and non reflective tinting. Reflective window tinting gives the windows or glass sections silver color or golden color. Non reflective tinting gives blue, green or grey color.
The levels of tinting are 50%, 70% and 90% tint and the sun protection depends on the levels of tinting. Normally 90% darker tinting gives more sun protection than the other levels of tinting.
7. What is the durability of frosted films and sun control films ?
Ans: Frosted films are heat proof, waterproof and dust proof. So they can withstand high amount of heat and water from rain. Frosted films can also be applied on bathroom doors where water contact is more. But still the film remains strong and the adhesive present in the frosted glass films are water resistant. And the frosted film also withstand high levels of heat and it prevent glare from the sun entering the home interiors. So you can watch televisions in the day time without the interruption of external glare. Also when you apply frosted glass films on bedroom or kitchen windows, it prevents the visibility of dust present on the other side of the glass. So the maintenance required is very less as you don’t have to manually clean the other side of the glass doors or windows at regular intervals.
Frosted films normally have minimum durability of 5 years.
Sun control films are waterproof and heat proof, but not dust proof. These glass films are very thinner compared to the frosted films but have similar durability as frosted films. They also provide glare reduction and reduce UV upto 99%. Commercial sun control films have very longer lifespan as they have very minimal manual contact with the film. Once applied, the sun control film can remain effective for more than 5 years.

Ans: 3M sun control or frosted film is US make and costlier than the other brands. Frosted films available in 3M brand are thicker than the other brands and have high durability. 3M branded films normally have price range 3 times more than the Chinese, Taiwan and Indian make glass films. 3M also offers night vision sun control films that are not available in other brands.

9. Can we remove sun film or frosted film as our own ?
Ans: Sun film can be removed by slowly peeling off the film and after peeling the excess adhesive should be wiped off by thinner or cleaning agent. The adhesive must be completely wiped off before applying the new film. The adhesives will not leave any rough impression on the glass. The glossiness of the glass remain as it is in the beginning.
10. Does frosted film reduce sun light ?
Ans: Frosted films won’t reduce the sun light passing through the glass. But it reduces the heat from the sun light to a great extent so that you can use the film just like sun protection film. If you need to reduce the sun light, you have to use curtains or blinders.
11. What are the tools required for applying frosted or sun control film ? Can anyone apply these films without the help of experts ?
Ans: You need a water sprayer, baby shampoo, tissue paper or cleaning cloth, squeegee, ruler and a stanley knife. Ruler is used for measuring the glass films to exact size of the film to be applied on the glass. After peeling the backing paper, you need to spray water mixed with baby shampoo for lubrication. You have to spray on the glass as well before placing the film. After placing the film you have to spray on the backside of the film to provide lubricancy while swiping out the water and air bubbles. You have to swipe in T shape first to avoid misalignment of the window glass film. You have to swipe without leaving any space on the surface of the film. If any space is left without swiping, it may cause air bubbles.
After swiping the whole surface area of the glass film, then you have to carefully cut the excess film on the sides of the glass window or doors. You may use the ruler while cutting for proper alignment. You can leave the film for around two hours for the film to properly adhere to the surface of the glass. After one day, the film becomes permanently attached to the surface of the glass.

Ans: SRC sun protection films are scratch resistant and non SRC sun control films are non scratch proof films. SRC films are costlier but more durable than the non SRC sun control films. The blockout films are also mostly SRC and are highly durable.
