Manifestation CABE

From Simple Dots to Amazing Manifestation Graphics…

Simple patterned manifestation film improves the visibility of glass, providing a safer environment and meeting legal requirements. Eye-catching bespoke graphic manifestations can strengthen your brand and inspire your staff in addition to making you're premises safer.

Potential risks around door handles

The Need For Manifestations

Staff and visitors moving in and around your facility may not be aware of the presence of glazing. Collisions with glass occur and are potentially very dangerous.

Hands, wrists and arms are particularly vulnerable.

The highest risk areas are:

  • doors, especially near to door handles and push plates
  • glass panes surrounding doors
  • low level windows (children are especially vulnerable)
  • glass partitions or screens which are at shoulder height
  • glass partitions or screens at low level (protection for the disabled under the Disability Discrimination Act - DDA)

Steps need to be taken to limit the risk of contact with the glazing.

All the information you need to know about Building Regulations (parts M and N), Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

privacy, light and branding

Advice from the Commission for Architecture & the Build Environment (CABE)…

“dare to go beyond efficiency and support effectiveness -
  • by promoting internal communication
  • by attracting and retaining staff
  • by stimulating creativity”
Strong branding in lobby

Use Manifestations to Influence the Way People Think About You

Manifestations are a highly cost-effective way to get the most from your brand and influence the way that staff and visitors think about you.

If you are thinking about putting dots, squares or other basic manifestations then, in reality…

… you are missing a great opportunity to promote your company's brand and values to visitors and staff.

Pay particular attention to the lobby, reception space and public meeting rooms.

manifestations providing meeting room privacy and natural light

Privacy films give you the benefits of natural light

Natural light has been linked to 15% reductions in absenteeism and increases of between 3% and 20% in productivity. To this can be added savings in energy costs.

Instead of solid partitions, use opaque window films in glass around meeting rooms to provide privacy, meet building regulations and allow natural light through.
