Solar control window films are designed to reduce heat and fading can provide a level of daytime privacy. This is achieved by reducing the visible light transmission through your glass- typically at the 35% or lower Visible light transmission level.
Decorative or privacy films are designed to provide daytime and nighttime privacy by introducing an opaque film that will eliminate or buffer visibility. However, unlike solar control films you will lose visibility from the outside as well as inside looking out.
