Frosted and etched glass is a gorgeous yet practical accent that offers privacy, natural light and endless design or branding options.
Frosted window film gives you the same beauty and benefits without the cost of replacing your current glass windows and partitions. It can be used on interior or exterior windows.
Medical offices, childcare centers, counseling services, government and financial institutions as well as various internal departments, such as human resources and payroll, all require some element of privacy and confidentiality.
Even conference and meeting rooms can benefit from a little privacy, which encourages attendees to express their opinions, thoughts and ideas with candor. It also minimizes distractions and keeps everyone focused on the topic at hand.
Vinyl film effectively creates this sense of privacy without making it intimidating. Making an area more private doesn’t always require full window coverage either. You can plan coverage and design based on the view from the outside.
For example, a wide band of frosted window film at eye level around a building lets in plenty of natural light and allows people to see what’s going on inside without letting them see more private areas, such as computer screens.
In a medical office, frosted window film creates a safe place for receptionists, billing departments and others to open confidential documents without exposing the information to everyone in the waiting room.
Visual communication is an effective way to support branding, define company culture and improve productivity in a work place.
Frosted window film is unique in that it provides the light, space and privacy we’ve already mentioned, but also in how effective it is at conveying a message that reflects a company’s brand or culture.
When privacy isn’t a priority and solid panels of frosted film don’t need to be used, a whole new realm of possibility opens up for the design you want to create.
Messages and images can be cut into or out of the film. They can even be digitally printed onto the film.
Unique patterns, meaningful words or a company logo can be cut into the vinyl so that part of the window is frosted while other parts are see through.
Negative space designs are an especially eye catching graphic that still creates privacy while allowing a little room for branded graphics.
Letters or even a logo or other 2D image can be cut into the vinyl and removed. The vinyl applied to the window would be the negative space around these shapes, while the shapes themselves would be see through.
Negative space designs are particularly attractive on retail storefronts or around meeting rooms, in spas or on office windowpanes beside the door.
This could also work the other way, in which case it would be called a positive space design. Unlike a negative space design, the primary image would be made using the frosted film, with the surrounding area would be see through. This may offer less privacy, but makes for a really stunning and classy graphic.
Ultimately, the amount of privacy depends on the shape and size of the pieces removed from the frosted film.
