Protect Your Data

Now you see it! Now you don’t!

With our high-specification specialist window film, you can maintain a collaborative working environment while ensuring digital data privacy.

Perfect for glass-walled conference rooms, meeting rooms or shared workspaces, this polarising film ensures data security by creating a blackout effect on LCD or Plasma screens to anyone viewing in from outside a room, while allowing those inside the room to clearly see the data on screen. This transparent architectural screen provides data security without the need for boxy, space reducing walls.

Why do you need data privacy window film?

Visual hacking can be defined as the act of capturing or viewing confidential, sensitive or private information for unauthorised use from a computer or screen. This can happen anywhere - at home, the office or a shared workspace. Anything on your screen is available to be visually hacked.

A recent report by The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has stated that there has been a significant volume increase of data breaches. For this reason, the NCSC has advised that it is absolutely vital that organisations remain vigilant to the threat of breaches.

Companies spend a lot of time and effort protecting sensitive information, but many overlook the most rudimentary form of theft, a glance at a computer screen. Our innovative transparent film offers you a new form of privacy to protect your information from prying eyes.

May 2018 saw the introduction of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act, meaning it is now more important than ever for organisations to pay close attention to how they collect and process data in order to comply with the new regulations.

Why do you need our help specifying and installing data privacy window film?

Our innovative transparent film is most effective when viewing a digital data display that is parallel to the glass where the film is installed. Our film should appear completely opaque when viewed from directly in front of the display and the display is at eye level. We have highly-experienced specialists who will visit your site and determine the appropriate orientation to install the film on the glass surface in order to achieve the best results.

Please note – to an observer moving past the room at an acute angle or viewing a display at table level, the film will appear less opaque. This light leakage may make displays partially visible while still providing confidentiality. The worst-case scenarios are when the viewer is very close to the glass and viewing at an extreme angle.

Also, the direction in which we need to place the film can vary depending on the digital display technology being uses (LED, LCD). In certain cases, our film may not work – hence the necessity for our site visit and orientation test.
