How do manufacturers develop adhesive privacy window film?
GLASS SKIN: WHEN AND HOW TO USE?
Adhesive privacy window film is increasingly present in buildings due to the countless possibilities and benefits of the material. Today we will learn more about glass skin and its applications.
Also known as curtain wall and structural glazing, the application in glass skin is ideal for medium and large projects. It consists of metallic structures supported by the construction structure giving a clean, light and luxurious air to the final result.
What is adhesive privacy window film?
Through this alternative, the glasses come in thinner profiles. Similarly, the larger support columns place behind it. It makes the facade completely glazed.
ADVANTAGES OF PRIVACY WINDOW FILM
The facade wrapping protects the interior of the building from both cold and excessive heat. Moreover, it eliminates the frequent use of air conditioning.
In addition, it inhibits the entry of ultraviolet rays that are responsible for the aging of skin and furniture.
USE OF NATURAL LIGHTING
This type of adhesive privacy window film application makes the environment visually pleasant. It happens without excess light or shadows, maintaining the balance of the environments and reducing the use of artificial lighting.
Undoubtedly, aesthetics is one of the strengths of the application of glass skin. Apart from the possibility of pagination with different types of glass, adding even more value to the construction.
ADHESIVE PRIVACY WINDOW FILM BRINGS AGILITY IN CONSTRUCTION
Construction with glass skin application is faster than conventional ones.
The protective film between glasses that is indispensable. In this case will make the facade even stronger and resistant to breakage.
TYPES OF GLASS SKIN INSTALLATION
The installation of the glass skin can follow three different models:
- Stick or grid: The structure comes in the building and then the glass is fixed.
- Unitized: The assembly takes place entirely at the factory. Manufacturers take the glasses to the construction site after fixing.
- Hybrid: In this last case, the installation is a mixture of the two previous ones. In a certain stage the gluing of the glasses finishes at the factory and the other during construction.
For this type of application, we recommend safety glasses. And we can temper it when fixing by means of hardware or laminate combined with:
- self-cleaning glasses
- among others
Everything will depend on the need for each project.
SLIDING DOORS WITH POLARIZED GLASS: APPLICATION IDEAS AND HOW TO INSTALL
The polarized glass is also known as adhesive privacy window film. It is the best option for those who want to find the balance between privacy and natural light in the environment.
That’s because it has a modern and revolutionary technology. It allows you to transform it between the translucent white color and the colorless glass – with just a touch.
With the push of a button, this technology changes an environment fully integrated with others to a completely isolated space with complete privacy. In addition to eliminating the use of curtains and blinds, facilitating cleaning and making the space more modern.
Privacy Glass, despite having this modern technology that requires electricity, we can also use it on sliding doors. For this, details in your frame deserve special attention.
And that is what we are going to clarify in this article.

- How to apply on sliding doors?
- Are there any limitations on its use?

WHAT IS PRIVACY GLASS, PKO’S POLARIZED GLASS?
Privacy Glass, PKO’s polarized glass, comes through a laminating process of two glasses. Companies fabricate it with a liquid crystal film with polymers dispersed within that space.
That is, between the two blades, instead of a common interlayer, there are suspended molecules. According to their movement, it makes the white glass translucent or colorless.
When applying a certain voltage, the molecules organize themselves in a specific direction, becoming colorless. And it allows light to pass through the adhesive privacy window film.
Why adhesive privacy window film is an ideal technology?
This technology is ideal for the rational use of spaces and the creation of technological environments. It is great for meeting rooms, partitions, bathrooms, restaurants, hospitals and clinics.
This is because it eliminates the use of curtains and blinds, facilitates cleaning and, consequently, also reduces the risk of infections.
We can develop adhesive privacy window film for both 110V and 220V voltages. It has high durability and can be custom-made.
It is also worth remembering that Privacy Glass, when in its translucent format, can receive high quality projections. Because it has liquid crystal in its composition.

- SLIDING DOOR APPLICATION
Can we apply this technology to sliding doors?
Yes you can. In this case, some details in the frame deserve special attention.
For polarized glass to be efficient on sliding doors, the wiring must be flexible enough. It is to allow the door leaf to move with the wiring coming out of the glass piece.
For this, the options are the use of power chains, flexible cables or electrified rails. Generally, the electrical wiring output on sliding doors should be made with flexible cables, similar to flat.
Another point that deserves special attention in this application is the cabling used inside the frame. In case of poor wiring, the whole as a whole may be damaged.
INSTALLATION AND TECHNICAL STANDARDS OF PRIVACY FILMS
Privacy Glass uses alternating current and a circuit breaker of at least 15 amps. It comes with an earth fault circuit breaker, protection for the operation of the power supply and timer.
These composite panels cannot exceed five square meters from a single source. And they must be turned off for a minimum of four hours a day.
It is recommended that the timer source be installed from the first working hour that you want to use the product – which will be available for use in the next 20 hours.
For example, if we install the timer of adhesive privacy window film at 8 am, it will operate daily from 8 am to 4 am the next day.
There is no restriction in relation to its size considering its installation. But rather the production limitation that the system is capable of providing. In the case of Privacy Glass, they are pieces up to 1800 x 2800 mm and thickness between 10 to 14 mm.
ADHESIVE PRIVACY WINDOW FILM FOR EXTERNAL AREA
We can also use polarized glass outdoors, as long as its edges are well protected and do not have contact with moisture.
In case of total exposure to the sun, the estimated useful life can be reduced to five years.
Polarized glass resists the impact of large objects, people and high pressure, which prevents glass fragments from loosening even if they break.
It fits the Standard of Application of Glass in Civil Construction, which establishes the correct way to apply glass to a door, for example.
OTHER USES OF PRIVACY GLASS
As we talked about throughout this text, adhesive privacy window film technology provides privacy, comfort and even energy savings. It makes it possible to control transparency and light input.
It can also be used as a kind of blind to replace the use of curtains on storefronts. Its surface works like a computer screen. And we can project image in high quality – great for agencies, offices and derivatives.
In addition, the ease of cleaning also makes it a viable and safe option for hospital and clinical environments. Moreover, the chances of infections reduce considerably.
