Create the ILLUSION of a 100% glass building.
Located between vision glass windows of a building, spandrel glass transforms into an opaque architectural element that can be used to conceal building components, including columns, floors, electrical wiring, plumbing and other areas of a building. Through the combination of vision and spandrel glass designers can achieve a seamless glass effect for the façade of a building. To ensure optimum performance, spandrel must be always installed in front of a uniform dark back-ground. For vision applications, Vitrum recommends screen-printed ceramic frit.
The versatile and custom nature of this product, allows it to be produced in nearly any colour, which makes spandrel glass a great product choice for architects and designer who seek to obtain a unique feature in their next glazing project. To meet the needs of all our customers and their glazing projects Vitrum has created two pallets of color offerings, Vitrum Standard Colors and Vitrum Select Colors. If Vitrum’s twenty-two standard and select colors don’t meet your needs, we are able to provide custom colors with our in-house color matching to help you meet your design vision.
Vitrum uses ICD’s Opaci-Coat 300® for an exceptionally durable, scratch, chip, peel and fade resistant finish. This glass opacifying materials is lead free and contains no organic solvents, making it the perfect choice for those designing to LEED standards. Alternatively roll-coated Ceramic Frit may be specified when and where required for spandrel applications.
