Lacquered Glass

This unites coloured lacquer with the brilliance of glass. It brings colour and ambiance to interiors and is particularly suitable for more demanding locations, such as bathrooms and kitchens. In homes, offices, hotels, shops and museums, clear glass fused with lacquer creates smooth, homogenous surfaces as wall panelling, in furniture and in wardrobe and cupboard doors.

Frosted vinyl decals Glasxperts

With frosted vinyl decals proving an easy and inexpensive way of creating frosted glass designs in your home, it has become quite the artistic outlet for creative homeowners. Nowadays, homeowners use the glass in their homes as focal pieces and often the frosted glass designs depict the interior style of the home.

Vinyl is suitable for whatever creative frosted glass designs you may have in mind.

These designs have been created by our group of graphic designers to meet the specific needs of our clients. This highlights the flexibility of frosted vinyl.

The blog from Goldrayglass explains, Ceramic frit is a pigmented enamel permanently fused to the glass surface at temperatures in excess of 1200°F.  This is a versatile product that can be applied to glass for a cost effective, low maintenance solution to many design needs.

Glasxperts products produced with Ceramic Frit are highly durable with abrasion resistance, a long lifetime and are available in myriad colors and patterns and as you can see by the picture, a wide range of sizes.

Glasxperts offers both traditional silkscreened ceramic frit glass solutions for residential and commercial spaces.

Ceramic frit coatings are the most durable and cost-effective way to decorate glass.

How is it made?

The process starts with a polyester mesh which is stretched over a 4 sided frame so that the tension is as great as if you were knocking your fist on a wooden table top.  With 90,000 holes per square inch on a silkscreen, you can only imagine how fine the powder like glass, called ceramic frit must be to penetrate the mesh described in this process.

The design which is provided by either our graphic design team or the architectural firm that we’re working with is printed directly from the computer onto the silkscreen with an opaque black wax.  The screen is then coated with a photo sensitive emulsion and exposed to UV light which causes the emulsion to harden and bind to the silkscreen.

Where the emulsion is exposed to the UV light, a solid layer is created, but where the light is blocked by the opaque black wax, the water soluble emulsion can now be washed off.  To do this, the screen is sprayed down with water, leaving behind only the image that you want to be printed onto the glass.  This clear area is where the ceramic frit will be pressed through the silkscreen with a mechanical squeegee.  When the squeegee and the silkscreen are lifted, the only thing that remains is a beautiful, clean piece of glass with the ceramic frit design printed onto it.  The glass then takes its turn in line at the tempering oven where it’s baked at 1100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Two Sided Ceramic Frit

One of the more recent developments in ceramic frit is the ability to use it on BOTH sides of a sheet of glass.  By offsetting two patterns on either side of the glass, you create the illusion of movement in the glass.  This has become a very popular technique in public art and in retail applications where you want the dramatic “shiny bobble effect” to get your customers and their wallets through the door!

By inverting the glass and running it through the entire process again, a second design can be placed on back of the first.  Even though the original frit is face down on the rolls, it doesn’t stick to them because of a special high temperature coating that we’ve developed which makes already baked frit resistant to re-melting.  Doors can be customized with an array of options including decorative glass and caming patterns, inspirations art glass, colored thresholds, distinctive hardware and deadbolts, multiple paint and stain options, transom windows and much more!

Fiberglass-Door

Innovativebuildingsolutions talks about the Fiberglass front entry doors provide long-term value, durability and energy efficiency. With a combination of reinforced skin and a foam core, fiberglass achieves the look of natural wood without all the hassle and maintenance of real wood.

A sliding glass patio door usually has two glass panels; one that is fixed, and one that slides. A French door features two hinged glass doors that meet to close and lock in the center. The basic benefits are improved security with multiple locking points and deadbolts, an increase in home resale value, improved curb appeal and reduced heating and cooling costs.

They are popularly used in bathrooms, offices, living rooms or kitchens; however, they are good for anywhere an owner would like them. Basic features include theft-deterrent locks for added safety, simple design, low cost and energy efficiency.
