Lumisty is a view control window film which scatters incident light from certain angles whilst transmitting incident light from all other angles. This characteristic means that the appearance of Lumisty changes from clear to frosted depending on the angle from which it is viewed.

If you’ve seen Lumisty in action you’ve experienced the unexpected and delightful visual sensation it creates. Walking past a window with Lumisty applied, a perfectly clear, transparent surface becomes, in a step or two, partially frosted. Two or three steps later, the same window is completely frosted. Walk backward or forward and it’s clear again. As the viewer’s angle shifts so does the transparency or translucency of the film. Seeing Lumisty is believing. Words just cant do it justice.

Lumisty is available in 3 types:

MFX 1515 – Frosted when viewed straight-on, clear when viewed from either side
MFY 2555 – Clear when viewed straight-on, frosted when viewed from one side
MFZ 2555 – Clear when viewed straight-on, frosted when viewed from either side

Made from mylar, an extraordinarily strong polyester film, Lumisty’s unique effect is the result of its microstructure.
Lumisty can be used horizontally or vertically. Applications include interior glass, acrylic and polycarbonate surfaces, glass balustrades, escalators and staircases, windows, glazed partitions, workstation screens, modesty panels, store fronts exhibitions and computer/ATM screens.

I am keen to discover whether you supply Lumisty to the domestic market? If so, what are the minimum orders you accept? Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you,
Anna Brooks.
