Retrofit Privacy Film for 2 St Peters Square

Coloured Window Film is a popular retrofit addition to glazing. It can add privacy, control viewing, or simply add decoration. Retrofit privacy film is a common requirement.

As experts in window films and graphics, ARC Window Films have an extensive range to suit any requirement.


2 St Peters Square

2 St Peters square is a modern new build office block in central Manchester. The design reflects elements of Manchester’s industrial heritage in textiles and manufacturing, presented in a modern, inspirational space that encompasses the latest technologies. As is the case with most modern new builds, glass is used extensively.



The Problem

As part of the initial design the plant and equipment was located on the roof, and surrounded by a clear glazed screen. Following completion it was decided that it would be better if this equipment were hidden, and therefore a  retrofit solution was required which would be in-keeping with the colour scheme of the building, and hide the plant and equipment.


The installation

Following various trial installations to find the perfect colour and shade, an opaque grey retrofit privacy film was installed to all the glazed screens.

The vinyl is in-keeping with the colour scheme of the building, and completely hides the plant and equipment from onlookers.
