about SEFAR® Architecture VISION

SEFAR®Architecture VISION is a range of high-precision fabrics, made from synthetic black monofilament yarn with thread diameters of 140 or 260 µm, metal-coated, at least on one side and optionally printed. 

The so called one-way-vision effect is obviously the main aspect of the product. It provides an exceptional range of design possibilities on the outer face of the glass pane, on the basis of a unique, exciting and lively 3-D appearance - and still with a clear view from the inside to the outside. 

Inside to outside view:
There is no show-through of the color on the outside to the inside

SEFAR® Architecture VISION functionality and benefits

Energy transmission in laminated glass in combination with VISION fabric 

The fabric's open area determines the degree of energy transmission and transparency. In addition, the metal coating and color is also instrumental for the reduction of energy transmission.
