Grand Central Station Birmingham

Guardian Glazing Films are very proud to be part of the fantastic new redevelopment of Birmingham New Street Station.


Optically Printed Bespoke Manifestation


Working for construction companies Glazzard Architectural and Martifer, Guardian installed the network rail digitally printed manifestation to all the internal and external facades of the building. This included the escalator glazing as well as shop fronts, while also ensuring full compliance with European and UK Health and Regulations Standards.

Guardian worked with MACE specifiers to create a bespoke design that could be used in this high traffic area. The matchstick effect was printed onto a band of optically clear window film to an opacity of 90% using the latest UV printing technology.

We also installed white vinyl to various areas around the station to conceal framework and fixings for a clean, and seamless overall effect.

Due to the grandiosity of the Grand Central Project, and the rather short time frame, our installation teams worked throughout the nights to complete the works on time ready for the grand opening on the 24th September. In fact, Guardian window film also aims to provide the best customer service possible, based on year of experience in the industry, supplying and installing commercial window films as well as residential window films buildings and establishments in Birmingham, the West Midlands, and across the UK.
