Every glass surface in your building is valuable real estate for your business. Custom window graphics provide much more than an attractive exterior or entry; they are an avenue to share information, boast recent accomplishments, provide updates and so much more. Decorative commercial window films and graphics are ideal for office spaces, retail locations, museum exhibits or as part of an overall environmental design. Consider the branding opportunities available when you make your windows and interior glass walls not only visually appealing but more professional and functional.
Replicate the look of etched glass, control the amount of light in your offices and workspaces, or add visual branding elements.
Glass films offer specialized features to suit any organization’s needs, and modern technology makes installing and changing out window graphics products easy and efficient. Let’s explore the wide range of window graphics products available.
Glass Safety and Distraction Film
Raise your hand if you’ve ever walked into a glass door.
It might sound like a joke, but in an age full of personal distractions, a broad swath of clear glass poses collision risks. Vision strips are an economical way to mitigate those risks. (And if you raised your hand, you’re not alone.)
A simple line, repeating graphic, logo or message, spaced across the glass can be easily applied. Vision strips add a unique design element to the glass while remaining unobtrusive.
Decorative and Privacy Window Films
Decorative window films enhance windows and doors and create the look and feel of pricey frosted or etched glass at a fraction of the cost. They can also bring a sense of privacy to a space. Adhesive-free window film creates a beautiful decorative effect while reducing visibility through the glass and is available in a variety of sizes to fit your needs.
Decorative window glass films quickly and easily update the look of any room in your workplace. Re-create natural vistas or stained-glass effects using ornamental films. The options are as limitless as your imagination.
Architectural Glass Finishes
Glass films and window graphics can transform ordinary glass into architectural elements. These products combine upscale visual effects with privacy and light control features that are ideal for conference rooms, lobbies, retail environments, offices and partitions.
3M™ Fasara™ is a family of polyester, decorative films created in collaboration with leading designers from across the globe. Available in several textures at a fraction of the cost of etched glass, 3M Fasara films are designed for interior glazing. 3M Fasara films are 2 mils thick and combine shatter-resistant and sun control properties with patterns and combinations of films that can work together to create a distinctly unique look.
Solyx Decorative Films are a dramatic, dynamic, easily removable option for window glass. Solyx films offer a variety of stock visual and physical textures, as well as custom solutions. Solyx product designs include the following:
- Architectural Designs
- Cut Glass
- Transparent Polyester Colors
- Custom Printed
Etched or Frosted Glass Films
Sandblasted glass provides a frosted or etched effect for aesthetic appeal and privacy. However, sandblasted glass can be expensive and can be challenging to maintain as fingerprints, smudges and stains are difficult to remove.
Products such as 3M sandblasted films can be easily applied to existing windows to add privacy or filter daylight and require little maintenance — only light cleaning as needed. What’s more, they can be custom cut to almost any size or shape and applied on-site at a significantly lower cost, which makes swapping in a fresh design more feasible for more organizations.
Static Window Clings
Static window clings are applied and removed quickly and easily without adhesive, making them ideal for temporary use. Custom window clings can be repositioned or reused without causing damage to smooth surfaces such as glass or ceramic tile.
Some common window cling applications include:
- Transforming bus, van and car windows into colorful advertising spaces
- Conveying branding and company culture on corporate, retail and restaurant windows and doors
- Attaching privacy clings as visual barriers and to filter light for windows, glass walls and partitions
