Architextural, part of William Smith Group 1832, is now the chosen UK supplier of a “revolutionary” self-adhesive window fabric. Squid is the “first transparent fabric that acts as a self-adhesive curtain” and a popular non-PVC alternative to traditional decorative window films.
Increasingly popular with interior designers and architects, this window solution offers a five-year durability and helps to retain privacy while permitting natural light. Its texture offers a realistic feel and minimalistic design.
The moisture resistant 300-micron woven fabric is available in Chalk, Bone, Oak, Ash, Rock and the newly-launched Coal, providing countless glass design possibilities for commercial interiors in offices, retail or healthcare sectors.
Quick and easy to install, the fabric can be applied directly onto glass surfaces. Suitable for any type and shape of window, Squid sticks to glass indefinitely but can be removed effortlessly without leaving unsightly glue residue. Ideal for digital printing, the high quality fabric can be used with UV and eco-solvent printers providing new commercial and marketing opportunities. The breathable fabric can easilydeflect 25-36% of the sun’s energy, depending on the colour, reducing solar heat gain during summer months.
Marketing manager Lindsay Appleton says: “It’s incredibly exciting to be able to announce the addition of Squid to our portfolio. This textile window solution is a fantastic alternative to traditional PVC or polyester window films. It presents substantial commercial possibilities. With the ability to print designs onto the fabric and change the ambience of any interior space, the possibilities are truly limitless.”
