Glass Enhancement

Glass has become a dominating feature of modern architecture and design. It allows natural light to penetrate deeper within buildings and enhances the spacial dynamics. However, large expanses of glass can present challenges to both the internal and external environments. Contra Vision® products offer a unique mixture of benefits to enhance glass and overcome challenges including:


Curtain Walling

Contra Vision® Laminated Glass™ was used to enhance the appearance of the W Hotel in Seoul, South Korea. The blue circles are invisible from the inside.


A large building in Europe was covered in over 20,000m2 of Contra Vision® Laminated Glass™ which was built into a louvre system. White dots provide privacy to people inside the building as well as solar control benefits. Exact registration (no overlap) white on black dots can also be achieved using our patented ceramic frit printing method.


Contra Vision® was used on balustrades in Japan to provide privacy without blocking the view.

Internal Partitions

To create privacy and add interest to the considerable amount of glass partitioning installed at Newcastle University, Komfort applied Contra Vision® Perforated Window Film to all the partitions and doors with stunning results.

Internal Doors and Signs

In this installation both doors display a map image on the front but, as this photograph demonstrates, the see-through is maintained from the other side. The doors were produced by laminating Contra Vision® XR™ into the glass.

Signs that direct or inform can be located on existing transparent surfaces or on purpose-made materials without obscuring through vision.

Contra Vision’s Vision Management System™ includes products and technologies which let you promote a different message or design either side of a glazed door without obscuring through vision.
