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.

I think it could work, as long as you do not need to see out of it for driving. Otherwise, it could be a hazard.

4 ft. x 6.5 ft. Frosted Privacy Window Film is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 382.

We have large windows and the curtain rods that came with the house were dated but a pain to take off. I needed privacy ASAP because we are the only house on our block that is only 1 floor so there were plenty of eyes looking down and through our windows. Went to Home depot the next afternoon, purchased 2 for our sliding doors of our master bedroom and one for my daughter's room. I did it all myself and it took about 45 minutes, that included cleaning the windows thoroughly so no dust, hair or whatnot was left on the window. I measured the film leaving a tiny bit extra since the spray package I purchased came with a blade to make it a clean and precise fit. I used the Gila spray as directed, making sure no area was dry and proceeded to place the film. After removing the bubbles and adjusting, the finished result came out PERFECT! plenty of sunlight comes though and VERY private. I am so pleased with the results and really I don't even need curtains anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps peeping eyes OUT! For quite some time I have been checking out different window film products. I went from automotive tints (darkening and mirror tint) to frostings, designs, blackout products, etc. when I finally found this product. My main use is for basement windows that are at ground level so people walking by can't peep in. This product does offer perfect privacy. The window I am covering has an AC unit installed in summer months and to cover the top portion of the glass with a vapor barrier. This product solves this issue. Another reason for choosing this item was for the coverage area for the price. If you don't want anything fancy, then this is the one for you! Installation: As the directions state, and I HIGHLY recommend, clean the windows very well. I used ammonia water and a razor blade to remove any stubborn dirt and any gunk. Once its clean, I used the Gila solution. I didn't get the kit as I have blades on hand and used a credit card for a squeegie.

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 No more peeping toms into the bathroom! My wife asked me to put up something on the bathroom windows to prevent someone from looking into the bathroom when she gets out of the shower. Previously, we had paper blinds which served this purpose, but also were very annoying to collapse down to allow the bathroom windows to be opened for fresh air. Also the paper blinds would occasionally get torn or discolored from the sunlight and moisture in the air. Installing this frosted film on the windows was a fairly straightforward process involving thoroughly cleanining the windows before application, cutting the film to slightly larger than the window size, spray on the applicator solution, peel film backer away and apply film to window. Then trim film to window using the cutting tool in the kit (sold separately) and squeegee film to ensure no bubbles and consistent contact with window. The film can be removed and reapplied within 24 hours if needed, but I did not have to do this on either of my bathroom windows.

This is exactly what we were looking for and in a roll big enough for a very large window above the tub in our master bathroom. We even had enough left over to do the top half of bedroom window that we didnt want to put blinds on (bottoms are shutter type things), but faced the sunrise, which was brutal in the mornings! I definitely understand the very mixed reviews. This product CAN BE difficult to install, and turn out awesome or a complete disaster and waste of money. Thankfully, ours turned out great, and the film let the exact amount of light in that we were looking for. I would highly recommend getting the install kit with the solution, edge razor and squeegee. Also, like everyone else stated, read the direction included very carefully and step by step. I've worked with many different films and applications and I found this film very forgiving and easy to work with. There was no issues with creasing or tearing when I really got after the bubbles. My 1 piece of advice: the wetter the better. Spray the window, both sides of the film, spray the adhesive side of the film as you're peeling it away, everything. The wetter, the easier to work with and more you can move it around and touch it to things without it becoming a crinkled ball of sticky crap. Hope this helps!

You will soon learn that your life will be a living nightmare. All of the adhesive glue remains on your windows even after removing the film. It will take you hours and hours of scrubbing to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to install *IF* you follow recommendations You absolutely *must* have a bottle of the installation solution to install this film (or you can make your own if you view the video on their web site). We did a patio door and it was a snap - no problems at all and we easily removed all the bubbles during the install, in one pass, with the squeegee. If you don't have the correct solution (it has a small amount of soap in it), you'll not be able to smooth the film or get it to slide into position correctly. If you try to do this "dry," I can imagine that it's a total nightmare. But, if you follow the instructions and use the required supplies, you'll find that this is a great product, and a VERY good value. I would strongly encourage folks who are looking at privacy or energy saving window films or treatments to go with the Gila films. They are great and I'm definitely going to add more of them to my house windows.

I viewed the how-to video on the website. I felt i understood the process. WRONG!!! Only in instructions with film does it state that the film is tacky once protective film is removed. I did as the video did...removed the protective film in one fell swoop. In the process...the other end folded onto itself. You can NOT pull it apart. Had to get another one from the store. WARNING...WHEN YOU REMOVE FILM...Only do approx 6 inches at a time...then spray the liquid needed. Wet the good film... Repeat...until protective film is off.
