It’s time to realise that your net curtains are history. One way vision film is the newest and best alternative.

Why you should get rid of your net curtains and have them replaced

It is time to move on. There was a time where net curtains were everywhere but now it’s changed. Think about how much hassle they are because you have to wash them regularly. Not only that, once they was washed you have to wait for a nice day to hang them out.

Once you’ve had the nets for a couple of years they start to look all tacky and ugly. The fabric starts hanging off and the holes tend to grow bigger and there’s so much more. However... you can now get a new solution for day time privacy.

The most recent and most modern way of creating privacy during the day

One way vision film is a reflective tint that fits internally onto your glass. When it is fitted right you will be able to see out clearly whilst people can’t see in. Not only does it stop people from looking in, it stops 83% of the suns glare and heat too. This stops the sun from shining on to your television or computer and cools down the room.

To create the mirror effect on the outside, the film needs to be on every window in the room. The ones that face outside only. This will create the right lighting conditions, making the outside 3x brighter than the inside.

No maintenance

Here is the best part... once it’s on the glass there’s no further maintenance. The only thing that needs to be done is wash it as often as you would wash you windows anyway. All you need is warm soapy water and a soft cloth. This will bring a more modern look to your home without those old net curtains.

One more thing, it blocks out 99% of ultra violet rays

Have you noticed under your ornaments the furnishings are a lot darker? This is because the UV rays fade our furniture. With this film you will increase the life of your tables, chairs and curtains without them fading. The most important thing is that UV damages our skin. So without it coming through your windows, your skin will be safe from solar related diseases.
