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.

My frosted window film keeps falling, why does this happen?

My frosted window film keeps falling, why does this happen?
Asked by: Davanh
There is a natural curl to the film since it's been rolled up in a box for a period of time. In the unlikely event that the film is curling up along an edge after the installation, wrap a plastic credit card in one or two layers of paper towel and use it as a squeegee. Stroke the film firmly down, beginning several inches away the edge, moving smoothly and forcefully toward the lifted edge. This will force out the air and enable the film’s adhesive to bond to the glass. You may have to do this a few times to dry out the adhesive and wick away any remaining moisture along the edge. If the problem seems persistent, use a hair dryer on the warm (not hot) setting to help evaporate residual moisture along the edge and thus allow the film to rapidly tack down with the “wrapped credit card” technique. Hold the hair dryer about 8-12 inches away from the affected area while stroking down the edge with the paper towel wrapped card.

Will my indoor plants still grow with the sunlight intended when film is installed? Thanks for the answer.
Asked by: misslynn
I would think only plants needing very little light would do well. This film does not make the room dark but not that much light gets through.

4 ft. x 6.5 ft. Frosted Privacy Window Film is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 324.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Effective My new apartment has a window in the shower so I needed something that let the light in but kept prying eyes out. Blinds were not considered because of the moisture. This window film was the perfect solution. I also purchased the installation kit...if you have a spray bottle with soapy water, a squeege or credit card and an exacto knife you can skip that kit. I put it up in about 20 minutes on 2 window panes without much trouble. Just make sure you read the directions carefully, take your time, and really spray the window and surrounding surfaces with the soapy water to prevent sticking while you get it into place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results We were skeptical of the product based on advice from our local Home Depot associates comments and selected the frosted spray for a job. It was ok for the glass in the shower but the uniformity of the spray can was not professional. We bought the Gila frosted film to test on a glass door and found the process fun. It takes 2 people to install and you must follow the directions to the letter to get professional results. Our glass door looks awesome and all our friends agree you can't tell the film from a chemical application. Thanks for supplying this great solution for privacy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice but with one problem The results are very nice, but the product states that the "EZMount adhesive allows you to peel the film away from the glass, fix the problem, and re-apply for up to 24 hours." No way! Within minutes, if you peel away to adjust it (after squeegeeing) it does come off but leaves thick layer of adhesive that does not come off. I am going to have to make another trip to Home Depot for the special remover, which I hope they have. The easy solution is to make sure the film is placed exactly where you want it before squeegeeing. The photo shows the daytime view with just the left window done so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Security I just installed this film on a high window that overlooked our upstairs hallway. The neighbor had a straight shot view, and that made me uncomfortable since I tend to not get dressed before leaving my bedroom. Installing a blind or window covering was not practical, and I didn't want to loose the light that the window afforded. Within 20 I had the film installed, and trimmed on the window. It is a little trick to handle it once you get the back layer peeled off, as it is static-cling. The instructions recommended using two people, and that would have made it a bit smoother. However, I am very pleased with the results, Plenty of light, and no view of my neighbor's window.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gila Frosted Window Film I needed this product for a first floor bathroom window and wanted something that provided 24 hour privacy. This product does, however, it should not be sold without the installation tools. Once the film has touched the glass, adhesive stays on the window and has to be removed before re-applying. The directions included in the package are oversimplified and if you don't go online you don't see how important the soapy solution is. Now if I want to apply it with the "sold separately" tools, I will have to apply a removal solution and scrape off the residue first. This product should be packaged with all the tools and solutions. I'm returning this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I see this film has some bad reviews because of application issues. It is very easy to apply if the directions are followed. Make sure to use the application kit or a spray bottle with clean water and a small amount of dish soap. Make sure to use lots of water/soap solution to float the film into position. Squeegee out the water and trim the edges. Its that easy. This film uses adhesive so the water is very necessary. This is a great product if you need a little more privacy. The big thing to watch out with this film is to not crease it. Creases will show up in the finish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me Although the idea behind this product is great, applying it is not great. 1. There are not trim lines on the backing so getting a straight trim can be tricky if you don't have a ruler and gridded cutting mat. 2. Because it has an adhesive backing, it is not easy (impossible) to reposition if not applied straight or exact the first time. 3. More than one person is highly recommended when applying it, especially if it is a large piece. 4. Hair, lint, etc will easily adhere so be very cautious about having a super clean space when peeling the backing away. 5. You have to buy the adhesive spray separately. They make it sound easy. It is not...at all.
