In recent times we have seen a shift towards both consumers and manufacturers placing more and more importance on the sustainability and environmental impacts of their products. With green very much on the agenda, the window film industry has followed suit with the development of architectural films.
Designed for interior and exterior use, these films allow spaces to be totally transformed using a much lower level of work and materials than if you were to use more traditional methods.
Whether you’re after increased functionality or looking to freshen up the design of an interior or exterior space, architectural films could be your ideal solution. Suitable for almost all surfaces they can breathe new life into windows, walls, furniture and kitchen units amongst others.
Benefits of Architectural Films
Value For Money
The first and most obvious benefit is how much money you could save by going down this route. The traditional costs associated with interior decoration can be pretty high depending on the design and materials used.
With architectural film, these costs are reduced in two different ways. The cost of production is fairly low for these types of film, meaning the purchase price is also relatively low. Secondly, the ease with which these are installed in the majority of situations means the manpower required is significantly reduced leading to fewer hours being spent on each job.
The results people see when installing architectural films are excellent. A professional finish and build that lasts means they are suitable for use in a busy home or bustling place of work.
Architectural films are perfect for transforming any interior and can help create faux finishes like wood, stone, metal, carbon, fabric and even leather. You can browse our case studies for some examples of what to expect.
Quick and Easy to Install
Another key benefit of installing architectural films is that they’re simple to install and the process will cause minimal disruption to your interior space.
There is no noise, very little mess and hardly any leftover waste. This means that your space can be totally transformed both quickly and efficiently.
As important now as ever before, the element of sustainability that comes with architectural film adds to their overall appeal. Being able to upcycle old furniture and fittings means the need for brand new items is greatly reduced. Over their lifetime these films are much more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than traditional decorating methods such as repainting or upholstering.
How Do Architectural Films Work?
They work through the use of heat. Our films are designed and created off-site before being brought in for installation once ready. Our expert installation team then manipulate the film using specialist heat guns that allow them to be shaped into place. Once this has been done the films will cool very quickly and remain secure.
What Can Architectural Films be Used on?
The beauty of our films is that they are so versatile. They can be designed and moulded to fit almost any surface, no matter what shape or size. Some of the most popular surfaces we see architectural films being used on are;
- Kitchen units
