MACtac Glass Decoration Films are a popular choice for advertising and an alternative to specialised glass and traditional sandblasting and etching.

Self-adhesive films are cost effective to produce, easier to apply and the installation can be done on site reducing the risk of an expensive piece of glass breaking in transit. Graphics can be removed and reinstalled easily in the case of vandalism or if a change of image is desired. 

As well as their decorative and space enhancing  properties, glass films can create privacy and security, protect interiors from harsh UV rays, create safety in the event of a window breaking and protect the glass surface from scratching and vandalism .A wide variety of films are available from MACtac for every imaginable application. 

Advertising messages: Retail windows and exterior buildings are the most popular applications. Glass films allow a message or image to be advertised but still allow customers to see into the store and allow for natural light. An innovative new application is the use of digitally printed etch and frost films to cover entire windows. At night the interior lights of the store enhance the graphic and give the impression of an illuminated sign at a significantly reduced cost.

Decorative: The creative use of light shining through coloured or printed film can create stunning effects and the cost is far more economical than using stained or specialised glass. Glass films can be used to simply improve a view or create an impressive piece of art. Etch and frost films can create privacy and are used in office spaces and home environments. They have the added advantage of being able to be removed should the design need to be updated

Technical applications: Glass protection films are designed to hold shattered glass in place, significantly reducing the chance of severe injury. They protect the glass surface from any abrasion that could occur with cleaning or deliberate vandalism such as scratching and keying. Replacing damaged film is far easier then replacing glass and involves less down time and cost. This is particularly valuable with public transport window applications which are prime targets for vandals.

MACtac Window Films offer many exciting, creative and practical applications and introduce new design possibilities for any kind of glass.
