Dual Reflective Issue


Recommended Posts

Oay So I Have This Customer I Did A Quote For This Morning And He Wants A Film Where He Can See Out But No One Can See In.. I'm Sure Everyone Has Heard This A Few Times.. I Tried To Tell Him That Because Of How Much Light Was In His Office Compared To Outside It Would Not Work. He Was Pretty Adamant That Auto 5% Would Work And If That Didn't Put A Second Layer On.. Well I Don't Really Plan On Doing That But I Was Told By My Supplier That Madico SL8 Would Be My Best Bet.  

 

Any One Have Any Ideas? It's An Office Inside Looking Into A Shop. I'm Kind Of Out Of Ideas.

 

Any Help Would Be Great

 

Thank You!! :thumb

hey its a habit have to do it on all the invoices lol.

 

I was thinking about a venetian blind on the inside or talking to him to set up a light on the outside of the window. just seeing if there was a different product that anyone knew of that would fix that problem, but I guess you cant change physics right

Sounds Like You Are On The Right Track, Reflective On The Outside And Smoke On The Inside And Lower Light On The Office Side.

A black film no matter how dark or how many times you layer it won't do the job with bright internal lights. It will make it very hard for them to see out however.

Your best result will be a dual reflective internal application like 3M NV15, SG TV5, ST DRMPS7 or something similar and an external silver applied to the other side as well.

You've gotta think 'shiney' not black. (Unless it's black block out :lol )

Even then it won't work very well until they adjust the lighting.

You can also think about a vision distraction feature like an internal DR install and stripes or something like Fasara Linen on the exterior. I've had some success with this.

Try just an external application of a reflective grey 10 first as somewhere to start and work from there.

I've used Suntek drmds7 with some success. But the idea to put ext silver on the opposite side of the glass is a good one. Maybe some track lighting above the window shining down on the window as well. Just make sure the bulbs on the outside of the window are high wattage. While all those behind the window are low wattage or very highly mounted in the room.
