We’re thrilled to announce that we are the chosen UK supplier of the new, revolutionary self-adhesive window fabric, Squid.

Squid, a brand owned by highly-respected Belgian textile company Lampe Textiles NV, is the very first transparent fabric that also acts as a self-adhesive curtain, and a popular non-pvc alternative to traditional decorative window films.

Already popular with interior designers and architects, the innovative window solution has a 5-year durability, as well as helping to retain privacy and let in natural light. Its unique texture offers a realistic feel and minimalistic design.

The 300-micron woven fabric, which is moisture resistant, is available in six colours including Chalk, Bone, Oak, Ash, Rock and newly launched  Coal, providing endless glass design possibilities commercial interiors within  offices, retail or healthcare sectors.

The innovative window solution is quick and easy to install and can be applied directly onto glass surfaces. Suitable for any type and shape of window, Squid has a five year durability, but can be removed effortlessly without leaving unsightly glue residue.

Also ideal for digital printing, the high-quality fabric can be used with UV and eco-solvent printers providing new commercial and marketing opportunities. Plus, a new latex version of Squid, Chalk is now available for latex print systems.

The breathable fabric can deflect between 25 to 36 per cent of the sun’s energy, depending on the colour, reducing the solar heat gain during summer months.

Marketing Manager of Architextural, Lindsay Appleton, said: “It’s incredibly exciting to be able to announce the addition of Squid to our portfolio. This unique textile window solution is a fantastic alternative to traditional pvc or polyester window films.

“It presents substantial commercial possibilities. With the ability to print designs onto the fabric, as well as changing the ambience of any interior space, the possibilities are truly limitless with this product.”

The entire range of Squid is in stock and available to order now. To find out more or request a sample, contact Lindsay at lindsay@williamsmith.co.uk.
