- To protect the installation whilst retaining clear visitor views of the display.
- The ambient sound created by the gentle whir of the mechanisms was also important to preserve.
- The material also had to be lightweight to remove to service the Split Flap if needed.
Optium Museum Acrylic®
Allows viewers to see the split flap rather than distracting reflections.
Acrylic is half the weight of glass and shatter resistant
Safeguards against injury and damage to the split flap and visitors. Lightweight to remove to service the Split Flap if needed.
Anti-static protection exceeds that of glass
Immediately eliminates static charges. Makes for safer, easier framing and less cleaning.
A durable hard coat protects against scratches from cleaning and general exposure to the public.
99% UV blocking
Protects the split flap from the most damaging light wavelengths, helping prevent fading and degradation.
The IWM design team took inspiration from old schedule boards in train stations and designed a kinetic Split Flap installation which became the central feature linking the three exhibitions and asking provocative questions relating to the season.
