After gaining a Queen’s Enterprise Award in 2014 for Overseas Trade, and another in 2015 for Innovation, UK perforated window film manufacturer, Contra Vision, has been successful once again in winning a further Queen’s Award for Innovation - testament to the company’s continued investment into research and development.
|Due to its 'virtual' hosting, the whole Contra Vision team were able to participate in the Award celebrations|
The award is in recognition of the company’s development of its High Definition (HD) One-way Vision Perforated Window Film. While standard perforated window film features holes that are 1.6mm in diameter, Contra Vision has developed highly specialised tooling and an exclusive range of films to allow the holes to be reduced
to just 1mm in diameter.

The product allows graphics to be printed onto film and applied to glass for advertising, branding, architectural design, one-way privacy and solar control. The perforated film allows a clear view through the glass from the other side.
The HD perforated film represents a breakthrough and allows printing companies around the world to print graphics that offer excellent detail and superb clarity.
Text and imagery that was once difficult to read is now clearly legible. The micro- perforations also create very smooth see-though; essential for perforated window film.
Presentation of the award was by by Sir Warren Smith KCVO KStJ JP, Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester and would normally have taken place in person but, due to the UK’s Covid-19 restriction situation, it was delivered via video in November 2020.
However, for this special event, all employees of Contra Vision were able to attend for the first time, along with representatives from the US and the Netherlands.
Roland Hill, Chairman and Founder of Contra Vision Ltd says:
“I am delighted that Contra Vision has been recognised for a third time and has been awarded the Queens Award for Innovation. I am proud of the team at Contra Vision; their continued hard work and dedication in identifying opportunities and utilising technological developments, ensuring that Contra Vision products continue to lead the way in the one-way vision window film market.”
