There is nothing more annoying than being interrupted by nosy onlookers. Tinted double glazing remains transparent from the inside although the colour view is slightly different to a clear window, it works in exactly the same as window tinted cars.

When it comes to making a tinted double glazed window, the process is more complicated than the process for a standard window. First, the glass must be made and to get it to develop the tint that you require, and the maker adds an inorganic additive that helps it to change the chemical formation of the window.
The extraordinary bit about these windows is that they stay transparent from the inside, but cannot be looked into from the outside! You will, however, notice that the bright glare is reduced on the inside and the room may take on a slightly different colour than it did previously.
Tinted double glazing is not just for office blocks! You can use them to cover factory windows, outbuilding windows and even in your own home. In reality, wherever you have a window you can install a tinted version, leaving you with complete free range to get them for anywhere that takes your fancy!
Aside from privacy, there are other benefits to installing tinted double glazed windows. We have listed the main reasons below and are sure you will be impressed by the number of pluses it can add to your life!

Different companies will offer different services, and you can expect to choose from windows that have a glued film, ones that come with a self-adhesive film, windows that have tinted glass or ones that self-tint depending on the amount of sunlight that hits them. Your choice will depend on your requirements and your budget, meaning that when your quotes arrive, you can select the one that ticks all your boxes.
If you are looking to get a tint applied to the windows you already have in-situ then many companies will offer a tinting service that installs a tinted film to the pre-existing setup. This may be a good option for you if your windows are in good condition or if you aren’t sure whether you want tinted windows because you can remove the film if you don’t like it.
The downside to having a tinted film installed by a company is that it is expensive and won’t last as long as a specially fitted tinted window. It will also be tempting to peel or pick at if people’s desks are near the windows and this will leave you with very unsightly windows.
If your budget is seriously tight or you have a small number of windows that you want to get tinted, then doing it yourself may be the ideal solution. It is also relatively easy to install. You can order your tinted film online (see links below) and then follow the following instructions to install it yourself. The tips below will help you get a good finish.
If you are struggling to decide which film to use, we have sourced three options available on Amazon.co.uk for you to pick from.
Whichever film you choose, make sure you follow our installation guide to get the best finish possible!
