Belbien Wall Vinyl is the new face of architectural finishes

Luxurious surface finishes such as natural wood, stone, brushed metals and marble are in high demand across the interior design industry. From rustic industrial looks with metal and wood accents to sophisticated interiors featuring stone or leather, achieving an on-trend aesthetic can sometimes require a major space overhaul that can break the budget and create waste.

With more organisations wanting to reimagine their spaces in the post-COVID era, interior designers are looking for solutions that can give old surfaces a new life, while minimising the economic and environmental cost. Belbien wall vinyl, distributed by Polyflor Australia, offers an exciting solution that lets you recreate almost any surface to resemble other natural or synthetic finishes, transforming interior and exterior spaces with a fresh look.

Belbien wall vinyl is an architectural film made from PVC and other synthetic engineering plastics that is easily applied to smooth curved or flat surfaces – both indoors and outdoors –  including metal, HPL (high pressure laminate), glass, PVC, melamine, Sintra, and many more.  Belbien can also be used on porous surfaces if they are well sealed prior to applying the architectural film.

Offering a solution for every project, the range maintains over 83 Belbien patterns, simulating timber, metallics, leathers, whiteboard, abstract and linen. Belbien also provides the ability for customers to match their existing surfaces with custom patterns and colours.

Featuring an air-release pressure-activated adhesive backing that eliminates the need for curing, Belbien wall vinyl allows you to modernise a space with very little downtime or area disruption. It can be applied to many 2D surfaces, from metal elevator doors to high-pressure laminate countertops, and its superior flexibility allows for it to be smoothed over angled surfaces without the need for special equipment or cutting. Many Belbien patterns also offer the flexibility to achieve a seamless finish over curved surfaces.

Belbien wall vinyl is a sustainable design solution that avoids major remodelling and renovation costs. By letting you refresh existing surfaces rather than discarding them, it also significantly minimises the impact on landfills.

Further enhancing its sustainability credentials, Belbien wall vinyl possesses a proven track record of durability. With 8.3 mil thick PVC and a strong air-release adhesive bond, Belbien finishes are made to last, while its excellent solvent resistance and stain resistance make maintenance easy and cost-effective. Due to its superior water resistance, it can be used in bathroom and exterior applications where other common types of wallpaper or wall covering cloth cannot be used. Belbien products are also fire and smoke rated, making these vinyl films the perfect solution in public areas.

Modern trends can be fickle, so while investing in wood or metal finishes may seem like a wise investment, Belbien’s finishes can be easily updated in line with changing tastes at minimal cost or inconvenience. Belbien wall vinyl is currently used in a variety of property types and applications, including residential homes, large-scale commercial buildings, architectural signage, hotels, casinos, schools and cruise ships.

Belbien wall vinyl is available from Polyflor Australia and comes with a 2-year warranty.  For more information about this versatile architectural finish, visit the Polyflor Australia website here.
