Anti-Graffiti Film

Painting Blog Banner.png

Not all graffiti vandalism is created with paint or markers, sometimes scratches into glass can be just as effective - not that we’re trying to give you any ideas!

The point is that not many people are aware that scratch graffiti can often be the most destructive, where there are many market cleaners that can tackle paints and inks the process for buffing out scratches in glass can be costly and if ineffective then glass replacement may be your only option.

Did you know that many of the top range graffiti and vandalism prevention films are designed specifically with scratch protection in mind?

Well, now that you do consider how that kind of technology can be invaluable on publicly accessible windows and glass panels.  

Shop fronts, bus shelters, glass partitions, framed poster boards - there are many glass surfaces that are exposed to potential vandalism, the question is can you afford to replace the glass if someone does decide to get a little scratch happy?

Gradient Fade Range

Fade Effex Collection.png

Fade Effex is Tint Design’s range of gradient graphics created in response to a constant demand for this type of effect. It is a popular solution to privacy obstacles in modern workplaces.

Often the way large office spaces are broken down into smaller offices and meeting spaces is with floor-to-ceiling glass divider walls - great for light and the illusion of open-plan, but terrible for privacy. Another reason for using floor to ceiling glass from a design point of view is that often when you break down a space into smaller rooms you will inevitably close off some of those spaces from the natural light source of any external facing windows - making the walls out of glass however will still allow that light to flow seemingly uninterrupted throughout the space.

So when the need for privacy but the desire for light is your problem then it’s likely that one of our Fade Effex graphics is the solution. Fades are a completely flexible design option that can combat sight-line issues without completely closing off a space. Depending on your needs, the level of opacity can be altered at any height and in any direction. The options available in our Design Range are representations of what is possible however all Fade Effex artwork is customised to your specific needs.

Throwback project: Monash University Logan Hall external facade

It doesn’t feel like that long ago we were in the factory installing this digitally printed white ink graphic onto the glass panels for the Facade of the Logan Hall Residents building at Monash University in Clayton - yet here we are are reflecting on this amazing project and it’s how hard it is to miss when you pass by it.

This project involved many hours of planning and testing to ensure the longevity of this digital print as the applicated film was to be encased in each double glazed unit as it was being installed by crane to the facade of the building.

Working closely with the construction team we were able to ensure that the timeline allowed for adequate drying time between the wet application of film and onsite installation of glass that would trap the film - as well as any residual moisture that wasn’t allowed to dry fully. As some may well be aware, trapped moisture within a double glazed unit can result in unwanted haze or fogging which is exactly what we were trying to avoid.

While this style of application has it’s risks and it’s not our preferred method of installation, it did achieve the exact look that the designers and architects were trying to achieve and the sheer scale of impact the design has as you pass it on one of the main drives of the Clayton campus is outstanding.

So if you have a seemingly un-achievable installation or you simply want to bring some personality and wow-factor to the front of your business, be sure to contact us for a free measure and quote!

Design Range At Work

NEW W (5).png

At the Housing Trust: Wollongong fitout a design was chosen from the TD Design Range for a decorative privacy band across the board room window.

‘Ascending/Descending’ in white ink allows for the natural light from the external windows in the boardroom to still reach in to the main office while still providing an adequate screen between the main office and boardroom.

While our Ascending/Descending design brings creative flair to this fitout the use of Fade Effex (gradient) was installed to ensure additional privacy for windows facing a public access area.

We have a wide range of designs located on our Pinterest page that will assist you in reaching your fitouts full potential, be sure to check them out!

Design of month

A new addition to our 'Geometric' Design Range ‘Center Quadrant’ works well as a striking feature graphic component within your space but can also tick a few of your privacy requirement boxes as well.

At a large scale and depending on the density of the graphic, this design can act as somewhat of a Privacy screen for a boardroom window but still allows for sections of visibility that, for a small space, doesn't make the room feel closed in, and for a busy office allows your colleagues to see at a glance when the room is occupied.

Get in Contact with one of our reps today to make ‘Center Quadrant’ your new office focus!

This recently completed fitout by Spectrum for The College of Law included some very creative placements of wall graphics on the pillars throughout the building.

As a provider of practical legal education for it's members since 1974, The College of Law is an invaluable place of learning for many of Australasia's future legal minds. Therefore it is only fitting that the space in which they work and learn is as fresh and slick as the workplaces they are likely to join post graduation.
Using a custom photograph of the Supreme Court of Victoria building, sections of the historic facade provide a stark yet sophisticated contrast to to the modern layout.

We love the finished product and how our reception Signage is so prominent for visitors.
