Architectural Glass Takes a Decorative Turn to Enhance Aesthetics & Comfort


Low-Iron "Waterfall" Fluted Textured Glass

Low-Iron “Waterfall” Glass

The popularity of workplace privacy is sparking a demand for textured glass walls and partitions. We are continuing to respond to this growing trend with the introduction of new privacy glass designs, offered in ultra-brilliant low-iron glass. Our expanded textured glass collection is one of the most diverse in the architectural glass industry.

“Waterfall”, one of the recent introductions, is a linear privacy glass texture in 3/8” (10 mm) thickness. It features an organic micro-fluted “cast” design with a hint of rhythmic waviness.

From a distance, it evokes the soothing appearance of cascading water. The ultra-brilliant low-iron glass obscures views, while allowing maximum daylight. Its light-diffusing and glare-reducing properties are ideal for privacy-oriented office spaces.

A leading software development company’s new headquarters is the first project to feature our new “Waterfall” glass. The 60,000 square foot office space provides a mix of private and open collaborative work spaces. It embraces the needs of the hip creative brand and caters to its artistic millennial workforce. Our linear textured glass walls support the multi-functional design and enhance the verticality of the space.
