Screen Filters & Privacy Filters

Screen filters are a cost-effective way to maintain your computer screen. It also acts as a screen protector against dirt and scratches that can often occur during busy workplaces. They are also effective at reducing glare from the sun. If your desk is located in a position that gets hit with the morning or afternoon sun you should seriously consider a screen filter. Screen and monitor filters can also provide added privacy. Some filters are designed so only the person directly in front of the screen can view the screen, anyone looking at the screen from the side only sees a dark screen.

It is important to check the size of your computer screen or laptop before purchasing a screen filter to make sure it fits.

About Screen & Privacy Filters

Privacy screen filters are an affordable option to help protect your computer screen from scratches and marks that regularly occur in a busy work environment. A screen filter not only extends the life of your computer screen, but they’re also effective at reducing hard lights on your screen. Privacy filters consist of a polarised plastic sheet that acts as an optical filter to block out light from certain angles. 

If your computer is positioned in a location that gets hit with morning or afternoon sun, a screen filter is for you! When selecting a screen filter, it’s important that you select the correct size that fits your device to ensure that the whole screen is covered. 

Screen Filter FAQs

Light? Glare? Why should I use a screen filter?

Screen filters are a quick fix to many workplace issues - dirty monitors, lack of privacy, and poor monitor vision.

If you work in a small office where privacy is essentially non-existent, a screen filter can help provide your computer with added privacy. Some privacy filters are made so that the person directly in front of the screen is the only one who can view the screen. This stops people next to you from viewing your screen - it's perfect for the nosey coworker or if you’re working with sensitive documents.

The most popular reason for using a screen filter is to reduce glare on your computer screen. Screen filters are made of polarized sheets of thin plastic - think of them as sunglasses for your computer screen. They’re commonly used on ATMs - if you’ve ever tried to view an ATM screen from an angle or from too high above, you will know that it’s impossible to view the screen. If you need extra privacy when using your computer, you will want to get your hands on a screen filter.

Are screen filters expensive?

We have a range of affordable screen filters that won’t break the bank. The 3M anti-glare filter for widescreen desktop LCD monitor is available for under $90.00 and is compatible with most touchscreen displays. Some screen monitors are a little more expensive than this particular product, but overall screen monitors are affordable ergonomic devices that can yield great results for a relatively low price.

What other ways can I protect my eyes when using a computer?

  • Using a screen filter isn’t the only thing you can do to protect your eyes during computer use. Many professionals suggest following the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet (approximately 6 metres) away, for 20 seconds.
  • Make sure to blink regularly. Many people blink less when using a computer screen which can lead to dry eyes and eye irritation. The more you blink the better your eyes will feel.
  • Ensure your computer screen is positioned at the correct height and distance. The top of your screen should sit just below eye-level, and the screen should be about an arms length away from your body.
  • A document holder is another affordable ergonomic device that limits the movements and adjustments your eyes need to make. This is done by positioning documents at an appropriate height for your eyes, while also restricting neck movement.
