Introducing Our New One-Way Vision Film: Ultravision


UltraVision is a versatile, multi-functional product, which acts as a one-way vision film that turns glass into a display area for graphics on the outside whilst allowing complete visibility through it from inside. The graphics can be purely decorative or used for branding and advertising. UltraVision also provides privacy and can form an effective sunshade which benefits those inside buildings and vehicles without blocking their view outside.

The effect is achieved by applying the vision film to the glass. The film has areas to print the graphics, as well as see-through areas covering up to 40% of the film.

This perforated vision film offers a cost effective solution for use on glass storefronts, bus windows, building windows, and more. Today, we have a new (but established) product which stands out from the crowd due to its reliability, durability, high availability, and an attractive price tag.

Have You Experienced Problems Printing Mesh Banners With A Release Liner?

Ultraflex Strip Mesh – the liner that releases not before, or during, but after you print.

Strip mesh is a perforated PVC substrate, which is ideal for printing semipermeable banners for use in – for example – crowd control barriers. The mesh allows for light and air to flow freely through the banner, improving its wind resistance and allowing the banner design to be semi-translucent. Strip mesh is delivered in rolls with a protective backing liner that is released when the banner is printed. Rolls are sold in widths up to 3.2m.
