By utilising a frosted film as an economical retrofit solution in light critical areas such as front entrances, nearly 100% of daylight transmission can be retained. This can mean light loss levels of less than 2% compared to plain glass in some instances.
Whilst great in many areas, typical daytime “one way” privacy films can lose as much as 60% making them a less than ideal choice for light sensitive areas. They are also ineffective at night requiring blinds or curtains to maintain privacy which are often not suitable around doors and entrances.
In multi unit apartments or housing complexes, the vision pane approach can also act as an address identifier with a consistent approach. Especially helpful for visitors or emergency services trying to find specific addresses.
