Either for privacy or decorative purposes, we have a custom solution
Off the shelf gradients are preset and normally only fade in one direction, at a restricted set size.
Custom gradients can do whatever you want – size, direction, color, pattern or density – there are no limits. The benefits of this privacy window film are that you can cover or reveal as much or as little as you’d like, with your own stylized pattern. We can do anything to meet your requirements with a custom gradient solution.
Architects and designers are no longer limited to the use of traditional gradients; they can now use our custom gradients to match other design characteristics perfectly.
The terms are often used interchangeably to mean the same, and is commonly understood in context. But what exactly is the main difference between Ombre and Standard Gradient.
Ombre is a transition between tones of color, graduating from light to dark. Generally, a graduated shading difference in tone. Literal translation from the French origin (Ombrer) is “to Shade” *Ombre is also a card game.
A gradient is a change from light to dark, or dark to light of a color. Typically used to denote transparency instead of light when referencing glass film.
Whichever you use or reference, MetWest will understand your meaning.
Full coverage refers to the area in which we can produce a gradient or ombre for your project. Standard off the shelf roll gradients have severe limitations, based understandable on the physical size of the roll. Our process is customized to the size of your space, not how much we can put on a roll. If you want a gradual gradient over 100ft in any direction, we can do it.
Gradients can be applied to all glass surfaces: Office Space, Lobbies, Sidelights, Retail locations, Glass Partitions – Anywhere to ensure decorative privacy or to improve aesthetic appearance. Custom gradient glass film can be produced to fit any size space; we work with you on design to meet your requirements to transform any glass surface to a tailored work of art with controlled light transmission and privacy.
