Glaskeramik is predestined for high value urban interiors, particularly as wall cladding in lift lobbies and in main entrance reception areas, due to its amazing and detailed crystalline structure.
The size of the panels will be limited only by our maximum sheet sizes (3500 mm x 1500 mm patinated finish and 3400 mm x 1400 mm polished finish) and the necessary structural and fixing solutions. Fixings can be made flexible via undercut anchor or using silicon.
Weight of 48 kg/mL at 20 mm can be reduced to a thickness of 15 mm where lift cars require this. There, simple profiles and cassette systems can make fixing possible and mid joints can take the test movements.
In some cases we can form curved material by slumping sheets, here is an example cladding panel beside a revolving entrance doorway, but we can also curve shower screens in this manner. Polished surfaces will be engagingly transformed during curving and show a slight rippling effect.
