What is Privacy Window Film?

As the name implies, it creates privacy, and is typically installed in those areas where you normally may not have much of it. A number of companies use privacy film in the board room, employee offices or the front door to their office space.

For example, the window panels of a conference room or an all-glass entrance to a business or storefront.

“Cushing is our go-to print partner in the Chicagoland area.  Whether we need large-format printing and installation work, or high-quantity runs with tight turnarounds, the Cushing team exceeds our expectations every time.  Our trust in Cushing extends beyond standard print collateral for our clients, we also use them for our internal needs as well, having had several privacy film and corporate art projects completed in multiple Avison Young office locations.”
Window Frosting for Privacy and Branding

Burnham Nationwide had different project goals: When the elevator door opens, see their brand and understand their niche in the construction and building industry. And provide some privacy to their team on the other side of these large windows. With their recent office expansion, they needed to obstruct some open areas right outside the elevator.

Both were achieved perfectly with this window frosting.

“The skyline privacy film exceeded what we envisioned. I’m still blown away at the level of detail they were able to cut out and install onto the window, so carefully. Turnaround time was great, especially with the level of detail we requested. We’ve found a new graphics and printing partner in Cushing, we can grow with, and a valued partner.”

Materials pictured are 3M Dusted Crystal, which required contour cutting on the Zünd router. It was kisscut and weeded as well.

Many Ways to Use Decorative Window Film

If you need frosted decals on glass doors, there are options.

And your installation does not have to be in a breakroom or conference room. As you can see in this recent installation, film is installed at the front of of the office. Every company has different needs and we can guide you through the process.

Decorative Film for Glass Windows

Have you contacted a graphic designer?

For decorative film concepts, you need a design we can print and install (typically to 3M dusted crystal, a material we keep in stock.) Creative professionals, such as a graphic designer, can develop a concept for you.  Want to incorporate your brand into the glass? This is a definite possibility, and a little more of a premium to print & fulfill.

Frosted Coverings for Discreet Meetings

Looking strictly at that installation for privacy? Consider frosting.

It prevents larger meeting spaces from feeling like a “fishbowl.”  Media we use creates a very private space in the office, conference room or individual doors. Typically there is no design involved. 3M Dusted Crystal is used for a majority of installations.  For instance, we pre-cut material based upon the size of the glass to create a privacy band.

Individual Office Film

What about individual work spaces or an employee office door? No problem.

While glass may be used at the workspace entrance, individual office windows & doors may function better with panels that provide privacy for meetings, phone calls or confidential meetings. Consider opaque film when an individual office needs that extra degree of privacy.

With this material, visitors won’t be able to see through the interior window.

Privacy Film for Conference Rooms

One of the main applications we see privacy film used are conference room windows (including our own at Cushing). If you have a conference rooms where staff meet on a regular basis, it can keep employees from feeling like they are in a fishbowl (with many people peering in).

This can be helpful if you have visitors on a regular basis.
