Interior Design is being transformed by a revolutionary new technique. Wrapping has arrived and its range of uses, designs, and materials are growing by the day.
Let’s look at Architectural Wrapping, how it began, what its made from and what developments are in store for it.
Architectural Wrapping is a really simple process that involves covering an existing surface with a special, tough, self-adhesive film – also called architectural film. It works with both flat and contoured surfaces. That means that the film can cover surfaces or objects that could have different shapes and surface finishes.
You may be thinking that it’s like standard old-fashioned vinyl but the materials of which these films are manufactured are very well engineered to be durable and high quality. It’s as though conventional Signage & Vehicle Wrap was beefed up by hard-wearing flooring laminates. They are designed to have the same look and feel as materials such as stone, wood, metals or leather amongst others.
In fact architectural film or wrapping is not really a brand new product. Its origins lie in the vinyls that began to appear 60 or so years ago. It’s just that advances in materials and manufacturing have revolutionised the sheer number of applications for refurbs and interior design.
