What is decorative window film?.....
Decorative window film is a modern, contemporary and cost effective way of updating your glass quickly and simply, the chic alternative to blinds and drapes.
Depending on your style or need we offer a wide range of decorative window films for use across the home or office.
Our frosted window films are increasingly popular, especially where privacy is required, for example they are often used on street facing windows, bathroom doors, and office partitions. For semi-privacy we have a wide range of patterned window films, which depending on the design offer varying levels of privacy.
In addition we have a beautiful selection of coloured window films. Transparent, they illuminate a room when the sun shines through, giving both ambiance and flare to your interior. With a selection of colours ranging from pretty rose pink and lilac, through to more vivid spring green and azure blue, there's a colour to suit every person and every space.
Great for home or office
If you are after a film that offers privacy, can obscure an unsightly view, or simply for a contemporary update to an interior, there is no better film than our frosted range. We offer a wide selection of quality frosted films, from plain white frosted, through to our new tinted frosted films.
Our frosted film can be used on any flat glass surface. We find it great for home or office, from street facing windows, bathroom and kitchen windows to glass door panels and glass cupboard doors. Translucent, this film completely hides the view, without darkening the room and allows a soft defuse of light to pass through. When an internal light is on it is possibly to make out defused shapes.
Where privacy is essential, such as bathroom windows and doors, we recommend the plain frosted film. But for where you want to be more creative, we also have a rage of decorative and graphic frosted films that offer a semi-privacy effect to your glass. Again when an internal light is on you can make out defused shapes, other than where the film is cut out.
Another benefit of the frosted film is an increase in the safety of the glass. Along with making the plain glass panels more obvious, it will also act like a laminate in the event of an accident.
Great for home, office or schools
With our patterned films from you can cost effectively transform glass. Our patterned film can be used on any flat glass surface.
We find it great for home, office or schools, from bathroom and kitchen windows to glass door panels and glass cupboard doors.
These films can also be layered with our Coloured transparent films to create a striking finish to your glass.
Due to the different designs on the film, they offer varying levels of privacy.
Our range consists of simple squares and stripes to pretty rosettes and waves.

Safety of staff and the public alike
Manifestations can be used where ever you need to draw attention to glass, whether its at home or work, from partitions, patio doors, children's rooms etc. We have a choice of designs and colours, that can be used for safety or decorative purposes. It is a legal necessity to ensure that all large areas of glass are made clearly noticeable, most significantly in corporate buildings or public areas, and employers are required by law to take the steps to ensure the safety of staff and the public alike.
The highest risk areas are:
- Doors, especially near to door handles and push plates
- Glass panes surrounding doors
- Low level windows (children are especially vulnerable)
- Glass partitions or screens which are at shoulder height
- Glass partitions or screens at low level (protection for the disabled under the Disability Discrimination Act - DDA)
“Windows, transparent or translucent surfaces in walls, partitions, doors and gates should, where necessary for reasons of health and safety, be made of safety material or be protected against breakage. If there is a danger of people coming into contact with it, it should be marked or incorporate features to make it apparent".
Here are some requirements highlighted in Regulation 14 regarding glass doors and partitions and the use of manifestations:
- They are clearly defined with manifestation on the glass at two levels, 850 to 1000 mm and 1400 to 1600 mm above the floor, contrasting visually with the background seen through the glass (both sides from inside and outside) in all lighting conditions.
- Manifestation takes the form of a logo or sign at least 150 mm high (repeated on a glazed screen) or a decorative feature such as a broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50 mm high. Can I see out
- Glazed entrance doors, where adjacent to, or forming part of a glazed screen, are clearly differentiated from it by the provision of a high contrast strip at the top and on both sides.
- Glass entrance doors, where capable of being held open are protected by guarding to prevent the leading edge constituting a hazard.
