Sandblast window film
We offer sandblasting films for windows, available by the running metre or cut to size. Our service includes delivery across the UK. These coverings replicate the effect of sandblasted glass but are easier to apply and more cost-effective. They provide an efficient solution for privacy and protection from unwanted attention.
Understanding sandblast window film
To comprehend what sandblast window film is, let's first explore sandblasted glass. In workshops or during production, transparent glass is placed in a specialised chamber. A machine designed for this purpose blasts the glass with a stream of air carrying sand or other abrasive particles. This process etches the glass surface, creating a slightly rough, frosted appearance.
Sandblast film for windows mimics this effect. These coverings are matte and possess a subtle roughness, resembling the finish of sandblasted glass.
The degree of matte effect and the depth of roughness (or grain) vary between different sandblast films. This variation is dependent on the covering's material thickness—the thicker the covering, the more pronounced its textured appearance.
Advantages of Sandblast Window Film
- Allows natural sunlight to filter through from both sides.
- Exhibits a subtle rough texture.
- Effectively obscures visibility, providing privacy from outside observation in both directions.
- Produces a consistent and predictable effect.
- Offers a more economical option compared to the cost of producing sandblasted glass.
- Easy and convenient to install directly at the site, eliminating the need to transport glass to a workshop or factory.
Can be removed without damaging the glass surface, allowing for easy replacement at any time.
