All of our Wrought iron Designs are 100% private. You will be able to see a silhouette of someone standing at your front door, but they will not be able to see in. As for leaded glass, the level of privacy varies. The rating goes from 0 to 10. The most private being 10. Our most popular inserts are rated 8. At this privacy level, the look is rich because of the amount of beveled glass used in the design and yet provides a high level of privacy.
