Here is a question I've been asking alot of my installers and helpers, and none of them has done safety film installation inside or over frosted glass.

Have you done this work over frosted glass before?

1. if yes, could you explain how?

2. if not, how or what did you recommend the costumer?

3. or simple you done it on the outside of flat glass surface.

I explained before my method in other forums, but it seems no one understood how it worked so well.

I just want to find out whom from you guys is closest to me theory.

Well most frosted glass is pretty close to flat, it just has a slight varience of texture and with a PS adhesive it shouldnt be a problem.

I can answer your question, but, I must know first:

METHOD HOW THIS GLASS WAS FROSTED.

Knowing this I can explain which surface can be installed safety film and how it will work.

I mean how:

frosted with window film

sand blast

or lot of other methoda I can't translate in English :bingo

If it is window film - that easy - window film on window film (but better safety first) it it is SandBalsted - film must be on other surface...

C-

That won't work unless the side that you want to apply film too is smooth glass. Sometimes The distorted glass is fabricated into an IG unit with a clear piece of glass on one side and sometimes you will find it in single pane smooth on one side.

With "frosted" or etched glass, mfg's do not recommend applying film to the etched side but I know some people who do it anyway. You are on your own without a warranty if you choose to install on the etched when the mfg says "don't do it."

Not to mention that installing a clear film on the frosted (etched glass) surface in many cases will allow visibility through, nullifying the frost look.

stay away. unless you warranty it through your company.

I've done it many times thru other companies, not on mine (I do it using the graffiti film 4-mil on the outside). These companies will do anything to sell the job, so they will assume the responsibilities when it comes the time. :devilangel
