Warning Decals

Project Feature: College of Law

COL_Blog-01.jpg

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.

Flashbacks of 2018

What a great way to burst into 2019 by reflecting on the some of the highlights of 2018! After a great year and a variety of different projects that highlight Tint Design’s vast range of services and supply options, we can’t wait to see what’s up next!

In 2019 we are also excited about the new products and services that we are launching this year so keep an eye out for our monthly newsletter - if you’re not already a subscriber be sure to click here and sign up!

We are keen and raring to go, so please contact us if you’d like us to advise, provide a sample, or quote on your next project!

Something to brighten up your day

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.

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!

a classic installation

When telling people what we do at Tint Design we are often told how lucky we are to work in such a fun and interesting environment. However this week, the shoe was on the other foot as we dressed up the new Shannons’ offices and auction house in Heatherton. 
With a newly refurbished illuminated pylon sign out the front it’s unlikely that any of the bidders to their Late Summer Auction (27/02/17) will be unable to find them. Internally, Shannons required some simple precision-cut black vinyl warning decals to all the offices as well as a large logo media wall within the auction house (an installation that seemed to drag out as the installers became distracted looking at all the beautiful classic and vintage cars that will soon be up for sale).
It may have only been for a small time, but we definitely shared the passion with Shannons and it was a great ‘day in the office’ working on this project!
