There are many frosted films available, of varying quality, to suit different requirements and budgets. Window Film Factory uses Mactac film, arguably the most visually pleasing and one of the highest performing window films on the market.

The Science Bit:

(Guaranteed for 5 years outdoors! / 15 years + for interior use*)
These use-life estimates are based upon accelerated ageing studies and outdoor exposure, under conditions experienced in vertical exposure and in "normal" temperate climates.
Note : Exposure to severe temperatures and ultraviolet light, as well as conditions in southern European countries, and also in tropical, sub-tropical or desert regions, will cause a more rapid deterioration. This also applies to polluted areas, high altitude and south-facing exposure.
