Nothing exudes professionalism and sophistication than an elegantly designed office or workplace. A workplace with wonderful design offers a good impression to clients. The impression is one of prosperity, dynamism, and good management. More often than not, a company’s capabilities can be misjudged with a poor set-up and outdated design.
A modern practice now implemented by most businesses is the use of logos or company names on etched glass. You would often see these in progressive companies and some even go so far as to highlight these with soft lights or have them centered on fountains in the middle of a lobby. The same goes for windows or glass doors. Instead of a plain glass window or door, you would often see the use of frosting glass to provide privacy to executive rooms or conference areas. A decorative glass panel also allows just enough light to pass through, yet visibility of the inside area will not be compromised. Gone are the days of plain glass windows covered with blinds which accumulate dust and require regular cleaning.
However, since etching, frosting, or even sandblasting of glass can be quite expensive, there is an alternative way to create the same effect without the high cost. It is now more efficient to use decorative window films for offices. It provides the same effect on frosted or etched glass without the high cost. Using film to enhance glass panels is more flexible and efficient since installation is easy and replacement would not be too difficult. Should you require any change in design or re-branding, the existing film can be carefully removed and easily replaced with a new film. It is also the best tool for renovation as it would be unnecessary to take out existing glass panels – all you need is to attach the customized film on plain glass to improve or change the look of a workplace.
There are 3 levels of quality in glass films to choose from. For glass panels that would be frequently re-branded, a monomeric film with only over 1 year of life is suggested as it is ideal for temporary solutions. The monomeric film is relatively easy to remove and replace. The 3-year life of a polymeric film, however, would serve those that need longer applications and would be ideal for areas that do not receive direct sunlight. For more permanent applications, the cast would be the best choice with a life of over 7 years. This is considered the premium film and is fairly more difficult to remove than the other two types of film.
Consider spending less on office construction and renovation with window frosting films or glass enhancement films. Just ensure that you choose films made from the latest advanced technology to achieve the same effects of sandblasted glass or etched glass. It provides the same elegance and privacy to any establishment at only a fraction of the cost of treated glass.
