Spandrel glass, most used in architectural glazing, conceals structural buildings components such as columns, air conditioning pipes, cabling or plumbing and is typically located between sheets of vision glass on each floor of a building.
Spandrel glass can be complementary or contrasting in colour when compared to the vision glass appearance. It can be high reflective or opacified, depending on the aesthetical needs of a building.
Spandrel glass must be heat treated to avoid thermal stress breakage.
Guardian Glass offers various solutions to achieve the best in class results using spandrel glass. SunGuard® High Durable reflective coated glass, in particular, allows for the application of ceramic frit directly to the coated surface, for a monolithic spandrel.
