The appearance of Lumisty changes from transparent to translucent, and vice versa, depending on the angle from which it is viewed. By applying Lumisty to transparent windows you can control the view through.

Lumisty is available in three types: X, Y, and Z. Lumisty offers varied invisible ranges in a vertical or horizontal direction. 


Lumisty applications typically fall into four main categories: retail or exhibitions displays, active graphics, privacy/security screening and view control/modesty on glazed balustrading and walkways.

Retail displays

Lumisty is used to enhance the eye-catching appearance of shop window displays in a wide variety of retail sectors. The view control film can be added to an existing display or can be combined with special lighting effects such as back projection when designing a brand new window dressing.

Active graphics and logos

For window graphics that appear and disappear as you walk by.

Lumisty ‘active graphics’, either made from film or cut clear out of completely filmed panel are arranged so that the design is apparent from one viewpoint but invisible from another, lending much greater impact to the communication of your message or logo.

Privacy and Security

The optical performance of Lumisty lends itself to many requirements of privacy and security. Typical applications include reception and security areas and offices handling financial and other sensitive information.

View control and modesty

Lumisty is the ideal product to provide screening just where it is needed, for example on stairwell or elevated walkway glazing. A typical requirement is to obscure a given line of vision for modesty and for the benefit of vertigo suffers.

Lumisty appears the same, at any given angle, to viewers both sides of the glass, and does not privilege either with one-way privacy effect.

However, by selecting the correct film type, it is possible to introduce the required vision control in many different situations.

Lumisty is applicable on glass, acrylic and polycarbonate sheets.

Single-ply Lumisty has one view control film. Double-ply Lumisty has two view control films and provides a wider invisible range than single-ply lumisty.

View control

In the translucent areas, Lumisty diffuses transmitted light and offers excellent invisibility.

The total light transmission in the translucent area is the same as in the transparent area (88% approx.).
