Design glass

Design glass

Glass is known for its transparency: We like a lot of natural daylight and a clear view outside. But glass is also increasingly being discovered as an art form, even for buildings. Since you do not necessarily have to take your glass in a boring, transparent form, under the heading Design glass we show various design options to add some color and design to your BGT glass.

The various design options are also possible in very large glass formats! They can also be used in single, double or triple (insulation) glass and in combination with other functionalities. In short, it seems like it can not be crazy enough. You ask, we deliver. Just ask!

BI-Color is a glass which is coated with ceramic colours. The colours are baked on at approx. 650°C and are thus firmly bound to the glass. This means that they do not rub off, and that they are resistant to solvents, UV radiation and yellowing, as well as to temperature changes of up to 200°K. Colour-coated glass is primarily used as a design element in the interior and exterior of buildings, yet the colours also perform other functions as well: they reduce the amount of sunlight entering the building and lower the level of glare, and can also protect against view from outside or be used for security reasons.

BI-LightColor is a semi-transparent glass with a special coating which provides for the ideal dispersion of visible light. This makes BI-LightColor especially suited for utilisation in translucent ceilings and backlit surfaces. When used as an individual design element, it makes it possible to evenly illuminate rooms. To facilitate the determination of the optimum installation conditions, BGT also offers tests for BI-LightColor Combi and BI-LightColor to determine the specific light conditions.

Full-surface Vanceva films are also widely used to play with colours. Laminated glass with the Vanceva coloured interlayer system creates a wide range of colours and moods. It provides solutions to many architectural design challenges while leaving the aesthetic appearance of the glass intact.

Vanceva is not only suitable for use in facades, but also for atriums, skylights, partitions and meeting rooms. The designs are expressive and beautiful, with distinctive colours that can vary from subtle to extreme.

Vanceva's coloured interlayers use the colours red, yellow, blue, black and white and combine up to four layers to create more than a 1,000 different colour options. From neutral and soft to vibrant, bright purple or orange. The choice of intermediate layers is determined by the desired final colour of the glass.

The laminated glass also functions as safety glass and can thus be supplied as burglary-resistant glass, bullet-resistant glass or soundproof glass. Incidentally, the film reduces up to 99% of harmful UV radiation!
