Custy wants a one way mirror effect, problem I am seeing is its a office inside a office, I know you can put Silver20 on one side and darker charcoal/smoke on the other instead of on the same side, but will it work with a office inside a office the same as if it was outside glass installation?

more or less. and take out half the fluorescent bulbs in the fixtures in his office. He won't notice once his eyes adjust, and it will help with the effect.

a 5% DR film would work well. SolarGard TrueVue, Hanita Opitune etc... something DARK.

But a good thing to do with folks after a one way mirror is to establish what is possible before the install. Remind them during a crime show the witness ID'ing the perp is in a dark room, less light is needed to achieve the desired look.

+1 on the Dual Reflective..... the darker the better

As others have said the internal office needs to have a lower level of light than the outer office for it to give that 'one way' effect. I have done this for a department store before and they placed an upright floor lamp to the side of the glass in the showroom to increase the light near the windows without having to alter the lighting in the office. It worked well.

Ive done a lot of this over the years, if you can get hold of some Johnsons MG10 it is the same look as syds-15 Suntek or sl180 madico but the difference being the adhesive is on the black side which adheres to the outside of the office glass which needs the privacy. So when approaching the office the films silver side is reflecting away and its significantly more difficult to look in compared to fitting other films i mentioned internally. I do suggest to apply more light to outsude of glass sometimes to aid so as to not reduce any lighting internally in office.

If you cant get hold of the Johnsons film then just apply a silver/silver film internally like sds-20 Suntek or Madico srs20 etc etc and then apply about a 15% automotive lowest reflective black film over top to reduce the internal back shot from the silver.

Best option being Johnsons specific privacy film with reversed adhesive.

Hope this helps

DRs will work to a point. Light adjustment is a definate requirement to do it. I have had good luck with Aquity Outlook 07. Then reduce visible light in the interior space. But, I agree with the point to dicsuss with them what they will have when finished. Not always a perfect answer, but will help.
