Decorative Aesthetic Units

Decorative and Aesthetics for Decoration, Manifestation, Privacy, Solar Control  and Light Diffusion.

Pilkington Spandrel glass has the potential to contrast or harmonise with vision areas and provide high levels of thermal insulation.

This extensive range has been developed for use in curtain wall projects, where the specifier is seeking either to match the non-vision spandrel panels to the vision area of glazing or to provide a contrast to the vision area glazing. The panels are available to match the whole range of visual effects created by the use of tinted or reflective glasses, and can be supplied with or without insulation, and in single glazing as well as Insulating Glass Unit form.

Performance

The use of screen printed glass gives both aesthetic and technical control of heat and light transmission. By increasing the ceramic coverage on the glass, the shading coefficient of clear and body tinted glasses is reduced, thus allowing greater flexibility of choice and design.
