Daytime Privacy

Enjoy your daytime privacy without sacrificing the view!

Having large, beautiful windows in your home or workplace can be both a blessing and a curse for many reasons. One major downside to having large windows, especially when these windows are facing sidewalks & streets, neighbors, or other frequented areas, is a lack of daytime privacy. Most of the time this problem is solved with drawn curtains or closed blinds, but we would like to offer you a Tint Solution! 

Michigan Tint Solutions offers privacy films that will provide you with varying levels of daytime privacy without blocking your view looking out. By installing privacy film, you can keep your curtains or blinds open, enjoying a full visual, while ensuring that those passing by can’t see in. To learn more about the windows films that we offer and your unique scenario, set up a free consultation with our professional team of installers. 

Every window, building, and individual’s needs are different and require custom Tint Solutions. We strive to work with our clients to provide the most optimal solution for long-term satisfaction. Have a unique request or don’t see what you are looking for on our website? Contact us! We always do our best to accommodate unique scenarios and may be able to special order your film.

How does privacy film work?

During the day, if our windows do not have a film applied to them, light from the sun enters into our space easily, causing many issues including a lack of daytime privacy when blinds or curtains are open. To remedy this problem, a reflective film or a dark, neutral film can be applied to your windows. Reflective film appears mirror-like on the outside; this causes the sun light to bounce off the window and reflect the surrounding environment, rather than displaying the interior. A dark neutral film is heavily tinted but does not have the added reflective effect. 

As shown in figure A, rather than allowing all the visible light from the sun to enter through the window unfiltered, a reflective film will cause a portion of visible light to be reflected off of the exterior surface. Although the effect is noticeable from the inside, our customers report a negligible effect on the natural light entering their home. In many cases, the reduction of visible light actually enhances our view both within the space and through the window itself due to the decrease in glare.

The mirrored or darkened effect makes it close to impossible to see into your windows during the day. Even on cloudy days, a silhouette will be nearly invisible. In addition to daytime privacy, this film also minimizes glare & fading as well as reducing heat and lowering your energy costs. To learn more about these additional benefits, click here!
