The glass on your building is an opportunity to advertise or catch people’s eyes. So use them as a visual frame or an informational area. Window graphics and signs are an excellent way to do this. We can use a variety of materials for window graphics, such as etched vinyls, coloured vinyls, and digitally printed graphics. We have also installed main signs to or visible in window areas too.
Etched window graphics
Etched window graphics give the appearance of etched glass. Additionally, you can have etched vinyl in a few different styles; even different colours to achieve the look you are wanting. On the right is an example of etch vinyl on some windows. But, this is not only an example of our etched window graphics. It’s also an artistic approach to the use of etch window graphics to comply with safety regulations.
For example, this installation uses cut logos and different coloured materials. This not only reflects the corporate branding; it also makes the window visible to prevent people walking in to it. Below are some examples of the different styles of etched material available. These range from simple patterns to metallic flecks in the material, to really sparkle.
Glass and window manifestations regulations for safety
There is a legal requirement to protect people from walking in to, or worse through, glass windows and doors. To clarify , these regulations are set out in two documents: Regulation 14 of the The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and Document K of the Protection from falling, collision and impact building regulations. BrandTech Design can help you meet these requirements. This while complimenting your branding and corporate image. As with all window graphics, we can use a variety of materials to achieve this. From classy etched vinyl, to digitally printed one way images.
One-way vision graphics
One-way vision graphics are the kind you generally see on the back of buses. These graphics allow people to see out, but not see in. For this to work, the inside needs to be darker than the outside. This is especially true when darker colours are printed on the vinyl. As these graphics are digitally printed, you can have anything you like on them. This can be a simple logo, as seen in the example on the left. Or you could have a photographic image printed and installed on your window. The choices are yours and limitless.
To get an idea of the effect, take a look at the image on the right. With the inside view (left half of the image), the glass on the left does not yet have the contra-vision applied. The glass on the right has contra-vision, but you can still see the person working on the outside of the window. Now look at the outside view of the same window, and you can just see the graphic.
As well as graphics, we can produce signs that can be attached to your windows, or are visible through them. This gives the appearance of your logo floating, and creates a great effect which never fails to look classy.
Cut window graphics and full prints
There are more choices for window graphics. You could opt to have your logo or design in cut vinyl. This is then applied to the glass. These graphics can be basic vinyl or digitally printed, and cut to shape. Another option is to have a full cover print over the whole window. This will of course stop vision either way. however, that could be exactly what you’re looking for, to hide a store room for example.
