Frosted Film for Pool Fencing

Tropi Cool Window Tinting Pool Fence Frosting

Frosted film being installed on a glass pool fence - by Tropi-Cool in Cairns.


I don't usually show jobs done by other companies, but this shot is iconic. From the perspective of a film installer, it doesn't get much better than this! ... perhaps a beer.

Hot day - in the pool - and earning a dollar | very nice

A glass pool fence is a stylish alternative to traditional pool fencing materials. Not only does it keep your family safe around the pool but provides you a clear view of the pool and its occupants.

  • From some angles, the glass pool fencing is a great safety feature allowlng parents to maintain an unobstructed view of their kids in the pool for their safety

But who else may be watching?

Keep you family safe from prying eyes and unwanted attention by installing a frosted privacy film on some glass panels to obscrue the view from neighbours or the street

Frosted film for the Glass Balustrade (Balcony Glass)

Catering to the growing demand for day and night-time privacy many owners of an inner city townhouse or apartment are turning to frosted film for privacy, both from passers-by in the street and from a nosy neighbour. Frequently, frosted film installed on the glass balustrade on the balcony can provide the privacy required.

Please Note: Frosted Film installed externally on a balcony or pool fencing must be a premium quality cast vinyl to withstand exposure to the elements. (ie a cast vinyl is higher quality UV stabilised vinyl film that is expected to last 5 - 7 years when installed externally).

For external installation we recommend:

For a sparkly appearance: 3M Frosted Crystal or Smart Films Diamond Frost

For a matt appearance: 3M Dusted Crystal or Smart Films Diamond Dust

 

Most frosted films are medium quality calendared vinyl films intended for internal installation only. Our Sparkling Vinyl Frost (SV02) and most acid-etch type frosted films are intended for internal installation only. If installed externally they may last 18 months.

If a calendared film is installed externally and fails after a couple of years this is not a manufacturers warranty issue.

  • Reputable Vinyl manufacturers clearly state which films are designed for external installation and these films are priced accordingly. It is the responsibility of the film seller/installer to advise the customer if a film is not suited for the intended installation.

Do Not install a Calendared vinyl film externally - it will fail (Guaranteed)

TOTAL BLOCKOUT FILMS for TOTAL PRIVACY

blackout thumbGot something to hide? 

Choose a Blackout or Whiteout  vinyl film

These films totally block visibility and most of the light.

Frosted films do a great job in most situations to provide privacy,
however if an object is placed within 300mm of the frosted glass you may see an outline of the object.

For total blockout we supply a blackout or whiteout film.

Privacy in the Home

tinting

Privacy is a basic human need, but increasingly we find ourselves on public display, even in our own home.

  • Clear glass in the bathroom and toilet?
  • Glass entry doors that allow people to see into your home?

Frosted films provide privacy both day and night and allow natural light to pass through the film so the room won't feel dark. It can also be used as an attractive decorating feature in your home.

Frosted Film in the Home

Tint4Less stocks the widest range of decorative films - Glass Art - and frosted films in Queensland.

Once used exclusively in the office environment, decorative films and window frosting is increasingly finding application in the home. Homeowners are turning to glass frosting for privacy, or to hide things from public view, just as in the office. And while the corporate logo is used in the office as a decorative feature homeowners are creating their own unique or artistic design features.

White Frost (SV00) was installed by Tintplus
on this entry at Upper Coomera, Gold Coast.
 

Entry Doors and Side Windows

Clear glass is increasingly being used in both the entry door and in sidelights. This, in combination with smaller block size that necessitates building down the block, mean it is now quite common to be able to stand in the street at night outside many homes and look through the glass in the entry door and sidlights and see the occupants at the back of the house - perhaps watching TV in the family room. It is not nice to think you can be watched while relaxing in the evening.

Frosted Film Options

1. White Frost

White Frost has a similar appearance to frosted glass and may be installed on entry doors and windows for day and night time privacy.

Many customers like a minimalist solution such as White Frosted film that complement rather than detract from the beauty of stained timber

White Frost is a polyester film (made from the same material as solar control films) that allow the light to pass thru while providing privacy both day and night.

It provides a clean, light, contemporay appearance. This film cannot be computer cut.

2. Frosted Crystal

The Frosted Crystal Films has a slightly sparkling appearance and provides day and night time privacy. This film is a vinyl and can be computer cut

 3. Dusted Crystal

entry door gaps

This picture shows an installation with cut-out style 3 (shown below).

It is favoured by many DIY installers because it makes the installation so easy

  • just trim the film 10mm shorter than the height and width of the glass prior to installation and position the film 5mm from the top and 5mm from one side and voila!
    • the job is done, with an even 5mm gap all around. No need to trim the film to size on the glass.

 Cut-Out Styles

A small gap (a cut-out) 5mm to 10mm wide will let you see who is at your front door but a 5mm-10mm gap will not allow visibility into your home from the street (or even from 1 metre away)

Tintplus offer three styles of cut-outs:

Style 1

side pane 1

Cut-out approx 10mm wide,
25mm from edge of frame

Style 2

side pane 2

Cut-out approx 10mm wide,

Style 3
