Warning Bands

Something to brighten up your day by Cassie Blomquist

Let your inner imagination fly with this fitout.

Working in a creative space like the employees at w3.Digital, it is a necessity for them to use their creative side and provide high quality work to their clients. Something as simple as a colourful privacy band can have the potential to not only encourage productivity and employee satisfaction but it can also leave an impression on clients when the the decorative element is as fun as this..

By using one of the many designs from our in-house Design Range or a Custom design of your choice you can transform your office into a decorative but sophisticated space.

Here's an interesting example of a before and after snapped by one of our in-house installers.

At a recent install for an office fit out we replaced the building compliance safety decals on their central  boardroom with a 1500mm band of frosted film and it's a great example of how window film can be used as a cost effective non-permanent room divider.

The beauty of using film products to transform your space is that over time when either your taste or budget changes you can easily remove and replace the existing for a dramatic change that can be completed in the blink of an eye!

Just because it’s law it doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Safety Decals, Warning Bands, Compliance Decals - they have many names - though whatever you call them they are an opportunity not a hindrance.

The Australian Standard AS 1428.1-2009* states that;
“any glazing capable of being mistaken for a doorway or opening, shall be clearly marked for their full width with a solid and non-transparent contrasting line. The contrasting line shall be not less than 75 mm wide and shall extend across the full width of the glazing panel. 
The lower edge of the contrasting line shall be located between 900 mm and 1000 mm above the plane of the finished floor level.
Any contrasting line on the glazing shall provide a minimum of 30% luminance contrast when viewed against the floor surface or surfaces within two meters of the gazing on the opposite side.”

While it has been a trend in years gone by to slap up some 75mm frost decals throughout a new build just because it’s a ‘safe’ choice in both design and (what used to be) compliance, it doesn’t mean you have to follow the crowd… 2017 is the year to be bold!

Since the rules have become much stricter in regard to the 30% contrast between your decal colour and the background colour, Tint Design has put together a series of free designs to add interest to your new build or fit-out, and our Safety Decal designs are compliant when precision cut from a solid vinyl or digitally printed in the appropriately contrasting colour to a solid, frost, or optically clear film. 

It would be easy to talk all day about the endless possibilities when it comes to Safety Decals but I guess the ultimate point in both life and building compliance is, when you follow the crowd you’re wasting your opportunity to stand out!
