Architectural glass products specialists Carvart have launched a new Metallic laminated glass collection and Carvart Textile - a new collaboration with textile manufacturer Designtex.
Metallic mesh and fabrics are encapsulated between glass layers in Carvart's new collections.
Intricate mesh is fused in between two layers of glass to create the decorative Carvart Metallic line. On the exterior, Carvart Metallic can help control light transmission and thermal/heat gain, potentially reducing energy required for air conditioning. On the interior, the black side of the mesh effectively shades sunlight and reduces glare, yet maintains remarkably clear views to the exterior, making Carvart Metallic an excellent component of a building’s daylighting strategy.
Suitable for a variety of applications, including interior and exterior walls and partitions, doors, and space delineation, the appearance of the glass can be altered with Carvart's various translucent view options that provide varying degrees of transparency and reflection. In addition, the meshes can be combined or digitally printed before being fused between the glass to create a totally unique appearance.
This versatile surface solution is also UV and moisture resistant, meets ASTM standards for safety glass, and delivers an impressive acoustical STC rating of up to 41db.
With Designtex®, Carvart introduces Carvart Textile - a line of UV- and moisture-resistant glass embedded with delicate, sheer and colored fabrics. Available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses, Carvart Textiles are suitable for partitions, room dividers, backsplashes, horizontal and vertical surfacing, sliding and swing doors, ceilings, bathroom enclosures and can also be used outdoors.
