Characteristics

Privacy and transparency

Squid® is a self-adhesive, transparent fabric which enables you to see out during the day, but largely restricts people outside from being able to look in.

Sun Protection

Squid® keeps a lot of the sun’s heat out, so it’s an ideal solution on windows that are exposed to strong sunshine. It’s also breathable, unlike plastic window film, so it’s even suitable for high-performance glass. Only the black version (Coal) may not be used on this type of glass

Natural and minimalistic

The effect of Squid® can be compared to that of a net curtain, but its unique texture has a warm, natural feel. Squid® is minimalistic so it can be combined perfectly with any other type of window decoration. It blends into any interior design style.

Printable

The high-quality substrate is perfect for digital printing. We’ve realised great results with UV and eco-solvent printers and are exploring other technologies. Squid®’s versatility and simplicity already have made it a big hit in the interior design and architecture markets.

Value and Benefits

High-end

Textile has a natural and noble character which allows you to upgrade a room by dressing up the windows or glass partitions with Squid®. Its open woven structure offers transparency and privacy and thus supports an open spacious minimalistic design.

Sun Protection

Squid® enables you to reduce the air-conditioning cost and ensures a pleasant and healthy environment to live or work in. Squid® Chalk reflects 36% of the sun’s energy and reduces the feeling temperature by 3°C. Its UV resistance makes it an ideal solution for sun-facing windows.

Versatile

Squid® creates a minimalistic and harmonious high-end look by dressing up every single window regardless of its size or shape. There are no limitations. Squid® can even be applied on XL windows, in humid environments, in hospitals and on high-performance glass.

Easy and removable

The installation of Squid® is fast, easy and doesn’t need any mechanical parts which makes it noise- and dust free. Squid® is easy to maintain and can be removed much faster than window foils when needed. In other words, Squid® is a high-value but economical option.

Creativity

One can create unique looks by digitally printing or cutting out a design on Squid®. Customization for every client or project are only one step away.

Applications

Non-Residential

Squid® meets all requirements to be used in small or big projects.

Squid® has already proved its worth in various sectors, healthcare, office spaces, retail and hospitality among others.

Thanks to its textile texture, Squid® creates a warm privacy-solution that amplifies a homey feeling in every one of these sectors.

Squid® also has a high-end look and makes it easy to upgrade an interior very quickly.

Squid® has a big creative potential. It can be digitally printed or cut out, and so it can have a communication or decorative function.

Residential

Squid® was developed as an alternative for net curtains and is in other words a perfect solution for each window or space in need of privacy or sun protection in residential homes.

Squid® can be applied on windows of all shapes and sizes and suits all architectural styles and interiors.

Squid® provides privacy only during the daytime and is complementary to curtains or other window decorations.
