Difference Between One-Way Glass and One-Way Window Film

How can one-way window film be used?

One-way transmission film (also called one-way film, mirror film, etc.) refers to a kind of film that can make the glass have a high reflectance to visible light when attached to glass. One-way film pasting can achieve the effect that when the outdoor is brighter than the indoor, the one-way transparent glass is similar to the ordinary mirror, and the indoor scenery can’t be seen outdoors, but the outdoor scenery can be seen indoors. Now, one-way window film is widely used in residential use.

The concept of one-way glass film is often misunderstood by people, who think that after the one-way glass film is attached to the home, you can see indoors and outdoors, but you can’t see outdoors. The realization of one-way transmission requires certain conditions: when the outdoor is brighter than the indoor, the one-way transmission glass is similar to the ordinary mirror, and the indoor scenery can’t be seen outdoors, but the outdoor scenery can be seen indoors. When the outdoors is darker than the indoors, the indoor scenery can be seen outdoors, and the outdoor scenery can also be seen indoors, and its clarity depends on the intensity of outdoor illumination.

What’s the difference between one-way glass and one-way glass film?

The fundamental difference is that the materials are different, one is the adhesive film and the other is finished glass.

The advantages and disadvantages of the two are as follows:

Advantages of one-way window film:

Low cost; Simple construction, no need to remove the original glass.

Disadvantages of one-way window film:

One-way film material makes it easy to damage; The effect is poor, and the brightness difference between indoors and outdoors needs to be very large; Self-adhesion is a little difficult, and it needs to be done manually.

Advantages of one-way glass:

Keep stable in the long-term, real one-way glass itself has a life almost equal to that of the building, so it can be said that the room can be used all the time before removing the glass (when choosing glass, please be sure to ask the warranty time given by the merchant and specify it clearly.); The light difference requirement is low. The brightness difference between indoors and outdoors of one-way glass has been well-adjusted compared with that of one-way window film.

Disadvantages of one-way glass:

The cost is high, which is divided into two aspects. First, the price of materials. The price of finished one-way glass is usually several times or even more than ten times that of the film. Second, the construction price. It is necessary to remove the existing glass and then replace it with one-way transparent glass, so all costs are high.
