Frequently asked questions about privacy filters

•    Which privacy filter fits my laptop? 

The DURABLE range includes display filters in various sizes for Windows laptops and Apple MacBooks.

⇒ See an overview of all filter formats

The screen size of your laptop can be found in your purchase documents, or you can measure it yourself. The filters for Apple MacBooks have a special design because the edge of the screen is already magnetic. The privacy filters for Windows fit, for example, laptops from Acer, Asus, HP, Dell and Lenovo. The upper edge of the screen should be approx. 7 mm wide to allow the magnets to be attached.

•    How do I attach the filter? 

The display filters are attached magnetically and can therefore be attached and removed as required. With Windows laptops, two small magnets are glued to the edge of the screen, to which the filter is attached. 

With Apple MacBooks, the attachment can be made directly to the magnetic edge of the screen, so that no separate gluing of magnets is required. Detailed attachment instructions for the filter can also be found on the packaging.

•    How do privacy filters work?

The laptop privacy films consist of vertical slats. Like slatted window blinds, they offer a clear view from the front, but obscure the view from the side With the DURABLE privacy filters, the privacy angle is 60°.  

•    Does the darkened screen damage the eyes?

The screen filters support eye-friendly working by reducing the emitted blue light. What’s more, the matt surface reduces reflections for glare-free working. 

•    Do the privacy filters also filter blue light?

The screen film reduces harmful blue light by approx. 30% and thus protects your eyes while you work.
