Customer Questions & Answers

The privacy factor sounds terrific, but can I see out at all?

We just applied some of the black film to the sliding door and we can still see the outside quite well, but it seems the frosted film may just appear frost white looking out as well. Is that true?
Asked by: Don
No you can't see thru to the outside, does allow the light in but you definitely block some of the light. Perfect for privacy.

Asked by: Deez
yes but the glue will have to be removed

Can you see anything from the outside in?

Asked by: Alboogie
This film does not totally block light. You will shadows if backed by light. I used this on an exterior door with windows and the application does provide privacy and security.

Is this product textured?

I am looking for a frosted window film with a smooth surface to match existing windows in my shop. Does this product have a smooth/plain finish or is there a texture or pattern?
Asked by: Al
No. It is a smooth finish, no texture.

I have used this product before and found it does exactly what I wanted it to. The first time the film, it was on medium size panes of glass in our master bath and it still looks great. My new project entailed installing the film on a multi paned glass door that we decided to use on our basement bathroom in order to allow more light into the room. We purchased an inexpensive standard multipaned door with clear glass to save money. I didn't want to go to the expense of purchasing a custom door with etched glass. Installing the film on small panes is a little more difficult to get the exact perfect finish that I wanted but with patience and care it worked. I installed the privacy film on both sides of the glass in order to provide as much privacy as possible for a bathroom door without it being solid and creating a dark basement bathroom. IT WORKED GREAT! Privacy is perfect, we have natural light in the bathroom, and the look is fabulous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent adhesion! Pro-product. This film is not for amateurs to install. If you haven't done it before, you will most likely get bubbles and folds. Also, you should know that this isn't a temporary solution. It should be for long term installation. Removal is hard, which is a good thing for longevity. If you are a amateur or want the option to remove in the future, go with a spray on type of frosting. That can be removed later with a razor scraper. Enjoy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ever struggle to apply a cellphone screen protector? Now multiply that frustration but 1000. This product is THE WORST. First, the directions on the box lead me to apply the film backwards. Then when the liquid dried and the film fell off, I read the directions on the insert and realized my mistake. Then, don't get me started on bubbles. They'll never go away. The edges will never be straight unless you own a massive cutter and can line up the sticky staticky film perfectly. Learn from my mistake. Dont be cheap. Hire a pro. They'll make it look way better than you ever could and it's only a couple hundred bucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good, not that hard to install Definitely mandatory: Buy the Complete Window Film Application Kit. This wasn't too terribly hard to install, and I had two kittens jumping all over everything trying to help, so pretty much anybody can do it. Took me 2 hrs for 4 window panes. Be VERY careful when you remove the backing from the film. The film itself is VERY sticky, and I ruined a panel when it got stuck to itself - That was a PAIN. The video is very helpful, and I was able to splice together two pieces to cover the 4th window pane. Patch job is ok, can't really tell it's a patch unless you look up close. This film lets light through but offers COMPLETE privacy. Overall pretty happy with this and would recommend.

We have a large window that needed covering and had to use the full roll. Even with 3 people we could not get it to stick nicely between keeping the film even while pulling the backing off and keeping it bubble free. It might be acceptable for smaller windows but it was too difficult to use the full roll. We did not use the Gila application kit, instead we used Windex. Maybe their kit would have helped, but I doubt it.

Applied this to double-pane garage door windows facing West (as well as to double-pane sidelight next to front door facing same direction, however partially shaded - but no issue with this location). Garage windows location insulated. 6 years later, this Gila product began to curl off the interior of the garage windows. It became brittle and was e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y difficult to remove. We tried to gently peel it off, but it came off in itty bitty brittle pieces we finally had to scrape off with a razor blade. It took DAYS & HOURS to remove from 8, 18"x15" windows. It also left weird brownish spots of hardened adhered glue on the glass, that had to be additionally - painfully, slowly - scraped off with a razor blade. The only way I would ever recommend this product is if it is applied to a window that is NOT exposed to afternoon sun OR extreme heat/cold. We are no longer Gila consumers.

Separating the layers was very difficult and removing the air bubbles impossible creating tiny wrinkles. I've used similar products before and they were much more forgiving to move and adjust. It's ok, the only reason I purchased this was because other products did not have the length I needed for a long narrow window.
