Bendheim Wall Systems Inc., the exclusive North American distributor of Lamberts U-shaped channel glass, offers architects and designers an aesthetic and performance only possible with this unique glass form. The company’s selection features six surface textures in regular and ultra-clear low iron glass, three thermal coatings, sandblast treatments, and hundreds of permanent enamel frit colors.
Architects and designers can create continuous, uninterrupted glass walls up to 23 feet tall with little need for intermediate framing members. Channel glass’ distinctive three-dimensional U-shape offers a characteristic depth and profile unmatched by conventional glass partitions. Exterior facades of channel glass are extremely effective as daylighting elements. As interior partitions, channel glass distributes natural light for the benefit of all. When illuminated, the walls create dynamic, eye-catching alternatives to flat glass.
Bendheim Wall Systems’ six channel glass textures – fine-mesh Solar™, finely ribbed Piccolo®, 504 Rough Cast™, Ice™, Clarissimo™ and Prismasolar™ – offer a variety of aesthetic options and privacy levels. All textures are also available in the company’s new and improved low iron glass, exhibiting an ultra-clear, brilliant quality. Bendheim Wall Systems also offers channel glass in a Pantone-like palette of enamel colors. Unlike paint, these glass powder colors fuse permanently to the glass surface, delivering scratch-resistant hues that will never crack or peel and are highly resistant to fading.
Bendheim Wall Systems can configure channel glass as single or double-glazed interior partitions. The glass channels can be oriented vertically or horizontally. Vertical channel glass systems can be custom-curved, resulting in a striking design aesthetic. The company’s proprietary interior frames are engineered for the demands of each specific application. They permit “dry-joint” assembly, eliminating the need for silicone sealants. Dry-joint assembly can speed up installation, reduce labor costs, and create a superior aesthetic, while offering impeccable joint connections.
Bendheim Wall Systems’ Lamberts channel glass is manufactured in Europe’s only clean-burning, oxygen-fueled cast glass plant, and contains as much as 60 percent recycled glass, including up to 40 percent post-consumer content. Prestigious award-winning projects, including LEED® and Minergie®-conforming green buildings, feature dazzling walls of Lamberts channel glass.
