And, pray, which ones are these? Car? home? office? factory? You have to give proper information if you want to get help in this site. otherwise, the thread will just die away.

I bought some from Essajee Glass Ltd hapo Lusaka rd Industrial area. The cost is about 180 bob per sq ft for one way glass. They have a variety. Call this guy Abdi 0734787610. He will deliver on site.

I bought some at some shop in Gikomba.
The shop is just below Remu DTM.
The building is neighbouring Coop Bank Gikomba.
1 roll for 6 by 6 ft cost 6k.
I gave them my measurement specification & they cut the various size pieces for me at no extra charge.

They may be normal glasses but i don't think the glasses in questions are the ones you are taking about. They sure do not have a window film placed on one side and if they do have a window film then it must be placed inside the glass. I stand to be corrected though.

While the outside is brightly lit i.e. daylight anyone looking in from the outside will see a mirror since the image of the bright surroundings, the outside, is reflected by the mirror. People inside do not see their own reflections, instead they see THROUGH the window film, and can watch the people outside. The opposite is said when the lighting conditions change i.e. night fall. People can start to see in while those inside see a reflection. There are ‘tricks and tips’ that acheive full 24 hour one way…place lighting outside and point it to the filmed glass. Outside lighting should be approximately 40% brighter than any lighting inside BUT you will have to test and increase the outside lighting to get the effect you require.

Abdi is unreliable, made my order on Monday morning and agreed on afternoon delivery to site 21km from industrial area, for 2.5 days he is still enroute.

Try Hebatullar Brothers, near Nakumatt Embakasi...if you have measurements take the measurements there they cut for you and its far much cheaper...infact you will just carry the pieces in a carton

Interesting.

Technology (or is it science) is always interesting.
I made an order at Juma Kassam (Meru) around 2001 and he got them from Nbi over a weekend! A shop on Taveta rd off Accra should be stocking the same.

Only problem with these kind of windows is the birds. They see their reflection and start pecking early in the morning.
