Warrington Service Centre

Brief: Reduce solar glare internally yet retain the line of site to the outside at the same time as providing a new advertising medium.

Solution: A full colour perforated advertising film was used to reduce the amount of solar glare entering the reception area providing the staff with a more comfortable work environment especially when working with computer screens.

The ability to promote the business both pictorially and in the written word was maximised by using a ghosted background image of an engine with full colour text and images overlaid.

Testimonial: Raf Khan WSC Owner said “The sun light has been dramatically reduced making the staff a lot happier and we can all still see what is happening on the yard.  As for the artwork to the outside I am most impressed with the appearance”
