The perfect height to install your sandblast film

Are you looking for a way to provide more privacy to your building or home without covering the entire window? Then sandblast film, also known as glass etched film, might be the right choice for you. With this film, you can prevent unwanted peeping. Ideal for example for meeting rooms or dentist and doctor's practices. But also for private homes, you can use this film ideal for example for the front door or the window at the front of your home.

Sandblast film has obtained this name because it seems as if transparent sand grains have been sprayed on the film. This allows colors and contours to be seen through the film only at a few centimeters away. But at what height should you stick this film?

If you don't want to cover the entire window but still want to provide privacy to the people who, for example, are working on the other side of the window, then you need to know the correct height for this. After all, you don't want the persons to still be visible when they are sitting behind their desk or lying in the dentist's chair.

This film is typically mounted at a height of 60 cm from the ground, with a height of the film of 1 meter. So the highest point of the film is at 1.60 meters from the ground. In the image below you can see an example of installed sandblast film.

If the object you want to shield has a different height than the standard dimensions, such as for example a treatment chair, you can also order the film in other dimensions. It is important to measure accurately up to which height your object is visible. For example, if you want to use the sandblast film for a waiting room, also consider the height of the chairs in the waiting room. So that someone who is sitting during the wait cannot look under the film. You can also choose to start the sandblasted film from the ground up to the desired height. If you work in an office with only tall people, you can also mount the film higher so that these persons are completely shielded.

Dr. Sticker can precut and stick the sandblast film to any desired size. So you can also use the film in combination with decorative expressions or you can incorporate your company logo into the film.
