Architectural Finishes Applications

Where can architectural film be applied? Well. Where can’t it be applied? Is probably a more prevalent question.

The beauty of architectural finishes is that it can lend itself to a range of different applications and environments. But. The special thing about architectural film is that the film brings different advantages to different environments.

In this blog we’ll look at where film can be applied and importantly cannot be applied, as well as diving into specific environments where we are seeing architectural film in situ.

Where can and can’t film be applied?

As mentioned in the intro of this blog. Architectural film can be applied to almost any surface!

As long as it’s a smooth and proper surface, you can apply it! From walls, to cupboards, to tables, to chairs, to counters, and much, much more. Architectural film is the ultimate facility solution.

Ask yourself this. Why rip it when you can wrap it? Resurfacing an existing substrate makes so much sense. There is no need to unnecessarily add to landfill.

But. There are some areas where you cannot apply architectural film. And you must be aware of those. Check out the list below of areas where you should NOT be applying film.

  • Floors
  • Brass, Copper and other corrosion-susceptible metals
  • Non-sealed concrete and stone
  • Non-sealed drywall, including skim-coat
  • Fabrics
  • Other porous substrates


As discussed, architectural film can be applied to a whole host of substrates. But the flexibility and unlimited design opportunities that architectural finishes bring to the table mean that the products can perfectly fit into a variety of different settings in a variety of different sectors.

Not only that. The benefits film brings differs from sector to sector. Let’s take a look….
