Glass Manifestations

Glass Manifestations are a hugely effective and eye-catching way to brand an interior space. They are a legal safety requirement, but they also present a unique opportunity  to make interior environments more impactful and memorable.

Discuss your project

Printed glass manifestations are one of the most effective ways to brand your workspace – giving your interior a sense of identity and communicating the spirit of your company (or a specific campaign) perfectly. Our team will work with you closely from the moment you get in touch. With your PressOn project manager acting as a consultant, together we can determine the perfect manifestation for your specific requirements.

Glass manifestations for privacy and productivity

Glass-walled offices and other glazed partitions are becoming increasingly common. Many office environments feature extensive glazing, but maintaining privacy in these spaces is still important. Custom-printed glass graphics subtly ensure privacy while also meeting HSE requirements. Studies have shown that well-designed, on-brand corporate interiors can boost productivity, and thoughtfully-designed glazing manifestations will contribute to a more stimulating workplace.

Excellence and expertise

We’re fortunate to have a highly talented team of project managers and print specialists. Their years of experience, across hundreds of projects, mean they’re perfectly placed to make the process of designing and installing glass manifestations fast, easy, and hassle-free.

Glass Manifestation FAQs

While there are a few rules and regulations in place that you’ll need to be aware of, we’ve answered a few of your glass manifestations and glass graphics questions that regularly come up below.

Why are glass manifestations a legal safety requirement?

There is a legal requirement to ensure the glazing is marked sufficiently to let people know it’s there, in order to avoid dangerous collisions while people are walking through a public or working area. There are around 52,000 accidents and nine fatalities per year in the UK involving glass fixtures.

You can read more about the full legal requirements for glass manifestations on this page.

What regulations are large areas of glazing subject to?

Under regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and the Workplace) Regulations 1992, and the Building Regulations 2000: Part M, large glazing needs to be marked to make it visible.

But as long as the manifestations meet the right specifications, there’s no limit to the kind of designs you can implement. This is where bespoke printed glass manifestations come in.

Are there any legal limits for glazing manifestation design?

Building regulations specify that glass manifestations contrast ‘visually with the background seen through the glass (both inside and out) in all lighting conditions’ and advise that the design can take ‘the form of logo or sign at least 150mm high (repeated if on a glazed screen), or a decorative feature such as broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50mm high’.

Aside from guidelines that pertain to size and visibility, there are few regulations concerning any design you may choose for glass fixtures.
