Quick Help With Type Of Filme

Recommended Posts

Guest CCrows

Hello all,

 

I am trying to block building lights into my balcony at night.

 

Balcony glass is 4 feet by 4 feet.

 

I am trying to cover only 1 feet corner.

 

It is a HOA apartment, so I cannot alter the look of the clear glass much.

 

What do I need to block the building lights shining into my balcony at night while keeping the look clear during the day?

 

Many thanks!

It didn't let me edit. Balcony has no lights in the night and the building light is blinding when you sit in the balcony.

If you can’t alter the clear glass then I’d recommend blinds or curtain.  Anything you add film wise to fix the issue is either going to be highly reflective and cause a mirrored look externally or black. And even the black you can’t go dark

This is balcony glass, not apartment glass. I can't add blinds or curtain to it. I need to use some sort of film.

Any light blockage is probably okay if I can get away without altering the look of it from outside.

:yeah  Likely will stick out like a shiny thumb. 

 

Don’t think you can have your cake and eat it too here. Will have to alter the appearance if going with a permanently applied film. 

 

A shade with a nice aluminum cassette mounted at handrail would probably be the best option for both day/night and uniform appearance with surrounding glass.

No matter what you put on it... will alter the appearance of the exterior side of the glass. IF You’re trying to block light. Clear heat rejection films are different.  But I’m your case what you ordered is going to alter it for sure

Thank you fellas. I am not understanding how there is no clear light blocking films. I think I visited 3M once and they showed me something similiar, but it was many years ago.
