Over the last decade, architectural wrapping in interiors and exteriors has become a bigger and bigger influence on the day to day running of our business here at Team HG!. This shift has seen big changes to our business and even resulted in the birth of HG Surface.
Generally speaking too, the growth of the concept of wrapping has grown massively and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular, with the benefits wrapping brings to end users, facility managers and the like being so vast!
In this blog, we are going to take you through some of the reasons to why interior and exterior wrapping has taken the commercial refurbishment world by storm in recent times.
Wrapping is a trusted solution.
Not a sentence that we have always been able to say about wrapping but is definitely a sentence we can say now. As touched upon in the intro, architectural wrapping has grown and grown over the last 10 years, to the point now it really is a method of refurbishing that is becoming accustomed to.
Over time, the portfolio of case studies has continued to enhance, with wrap becoming a popular method in hotel, hospitality and leisure environments, to name just a few.
Here at Team HG!, not only are our customers trusting the solution, they have full confidence in the installation job we are going to provide. Adhering to the correct installation practices are integral, and our endorsed team have taken all the necessary steps to ensure our clients know that a successful install will take place.Case Studies >
The only thing holding you back is your own imagination.
When it comes to the possibilities in interior and exterior design with architectural wraps, the world really is your oyster.
Within the portfolio of finishes we use to transform interior and exterior design, there is 1000s of different looks and feels available from a whole host of pattern families. There really are no boundaries! The selection of films cover; woods, colours, fabrics, stones, marbles, metallics, leathers and even glitter finishes.
Whatever the design requirement, we can match it, and that’s a HG promise.View the finishes >
Although at Team HG! we are big believers in you get what you pay for when it comes to our services, price is an obvious question that we get, and is always the elephant in the room when it comes to anything isn’t it?
Our answer to this is that architectural wrapping is very price competitive, and typically is the 1/7th of the cost of buying new, which is down to a whole host of factors, from the minimal upkeep required, durability and disruption (which we’ll dive into more later), as well as the material cost versus more traditional solutions.
But don’t get us wrong, the products we use aren’t ‘cheap’, nor do we want them to be! Always bear in mind…. cheaper isn’t always better.Get a quote >
We’ve already talked about the flexibility in the design, now we’re going to go into the flexibility of the product itself!
The conformability of the products we use really is another key USP when discussing this refurbishment solution.
When introducing this concept to our clients, there is perceptions that perhaps the products will be limited to flat surfaces, which is simply just not the case. The products can conform with heat, allowing almost any surface to be wrapped, making them ideal for a range of different substrates. Whether that’s counter tops, tables, chairs, draws, walls or much more.
A biproduct of the solution being used on so many different surfaces are that the product are perfect in so many different commercial environments too!
Save time and money with architectural wrapping. Traditional refurbishments take so much time, make so much noise and let’s face it, can be very messy too. This can be a commercial environments worst nightmare! Ripping out existing might mean a closure is required, which ultimately can mean a whole lot of money lost.
With architectural finishes, you don’t need to be closed during a refurb. You can wrap any surface, from fixtures to walls, lifts, doors, columns, ceilings and much more. The application process is so easy as well. There’s minimal mess, noise, no smell or even waste sent to landfill. You can even apply in situ! Just think, how much money could you save by keeping your business open and refurbing it at the same time!? You can improve your look and improve your bottom line at the same time.
Sustainability…. It’s on the tip of everyone’s tongues these days, and for good reason!
Well, one of the biggest selling points of architectural wrap is that it does indeed tick the sustainability box. Yes, we have to hold our hands up in terms of the products we use being PVC, we simply can’t get away from that fact.
But, what this product can do though is be applied on top of existing surfaces, giving them a new lease of life, instead of them necessarily going into landfill.
Resurface with HG Surface. It’s a simple message.
As teased earlier in this piece, the products we use are made of stern stuff.
That’s right, architectural films aren’t just there to lucky pretty, they are robust and very much able to stand up to the rigours of high traffic areas in the commercial setting.
When it comes to commercial refurbs, 3M DI-NOC is the perfect solution, with 3M very much priding themselves on the performance levels of their products. DI-NOC brings a warranty guarantee of 12 years for interior applications (and will last much longer), with the product being very much there to stay.
You really have to see it to believe it.
When first introducing the concept of wrapping to our clients, there is the obvious trepidation around the product ‘see, touch and feeling’ like the real thing.
Although an understandable concern, it’s a concern you don’t need to have. The product is fantastically realistic not just in its textured feel but in its aesthetics too.
Time and time again our customers are completely blown away with the results in terms of replicating ‘the real thing’, and their astonishment is a reaction we never get tired of.See the finishes >
Won’t it just peel off?
Is a question we have been asked an untold number of times, and we completely understand why! With certain (not fit purposes) wraps giving the concept of wrapping a bad name over the years, we really do understand certain perceptions when it comes to the solution.
But, we’re here to tell you that you really don’t have to worry. Not only is our endorsed installation team trained to ensure the products are there to stay but the products we use really are best in class too. These films are highly engineered architectural films that are designed to replicate not only the look but the performance of real-life materials.Find out more >
