What we make

What we make

Walker Glass is North America’s market leader in the development and manufacture of premium quality mirrors and acid etched glass substrates.

Walker’s double-coat silvering process produces durable, high-quality mirrors in a broad spectrum of substrate tints, thicknesses and sizes.

Etched glass is produced using state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and optical measurement and control systems that assure uniformity of the etched surface on all of our four full surface finishes (Opaque, Velour, Satin and Satinlite) as part of the Walker Textures® brand. Walker’s line of interior and exterior glazing substrates includes the Traction® collection of anti-slip glass flooring surfaces, the Nuance® and Transition® families of decorative stock and custom etched patterns. Last but not least, Walker’s bird-friendly glass is produced under its market-leading Aviprotek® brand of products.

This is what we do differently

The unique things we do at Walker are guided by our values and driven by our customers and partners. First things first – we take care of our customers. They need their deliveries quickly, on time and according to their handling constraints. We ship across North America on short lead times, often with our own fleet using handling equipment that complies with their needs. Walker has over 5000 SKUs in our product line with a robust stocking program – we fulfill custom requests. Next – we innovate intelligently. We listen to the Architect community and keep our ear to the ground on ground-breaking trends. And then we get to work on answering these needs. It’s our passion. The Aviprotek® is a perfect example. Check it out!

Products

Acid-etched Glass
SEND INQUIRY
Walker Textures® acid-etched glass products offer architects and interior designers a unique opportunity to realize their design goals.
More details ...

Because it is not a coating, acid-etched glass maintains its look and finish over time, creating a translucent satin appearance which obscures view while maintaining a high level of light transmittance. Our full surface products come in four different opacities and can be used in interior and exterior applications.

Acid-etched Mirror
SEND INQUIRY
Walker Textures® acid-etched mirrors offer wonderful opportunities to architects, interior designers and decorators to achieve their unique design goals.
More details ...

The consistent quality, durability and alluring look of Walker Textures® products is unmatched. The acid-etch process creates a satin finish while keeping a slight reflection in the mirror, and reflected surface light creates the illusion of depth.  Walker’s acid-etched mirror is perfect for wall coverings and designed exclusively for interior applications.

Patterned Acid-etched Glass
SEND INQUIRY
The Walker Textures® Nuance line is composed of standard and custom acid-etched glass patterns.
More details ...

When combined with the various choice of substrates and thicknesses, design possibilities are limited only by the imagination! Walker’s Nuance products help you achieve unique visuals while adding dimensional effects to the glass – all with the added benefit of high levels of visible light transmission. Don’t forget, if you have specific needs and wish to create a custom solution, we’re at your service!

Acid-etched Glass Transition Patterns
SEND INQUIRY
The Walker Textures® Transition offering consists of two alternatives that subtly fade the masked area from fully opaque to fully transparent glass.
More details ...

First, the True Fade which provides an etched finish that subtly fades into a clear, fully transparent surface over a 4 inch span. Second, the Gradient which provides total control of the design to maximize the fading and etching areas. Both solutions maximize daylighting while preserving needed privacy.

Anti-slip Acid-etched Glass
SEND INQUIRY
The Walker Textures® Traction anti-slip acid-etched glass products combine discretion, light transmittance, durability, safety and an undeniably sophisticated design allure.
More details ...

Our Traction products have complete surface coverage and are the ideal solution to preserve user privacy. Traction acid-etched glass can be used inside as well as outside. Testimonials from various projects such as the TKTS exterior staircase located in Time Square, are the real proof of Traction’s track record of wear resistance.

AviProtek® – 1st Surface Solution
SEND INQUIRY
AviProtek® is Walker’s bird friendly glass solution with the acid-etched designs on the number 1 surface of the glass.
More details ...

Etched patterns are located on the outside (1st) surface which provides the greatest chance for birds to identify the glazing surface and avoid collision. AviProtek® products are used for guard rails, rain screens or in insulated units (typically with a third-surface low-e glass). All Aviprotek® products come with a 10 year warranty.

AviProtek® E – Low-e Coated
SEND INQUIRY
The AviProtek® E bird friendly glass solution combines acid-etched visual markers on the 1st surface with Vitro’s Solarban® high performance low-e on the 2nd surface, creating the most effective bird friendly glazing solution while saving energy at the same time!
More details ...

This innovation enables architects and building owners alike to achieve their environmental goals and earn LEED credits, while meeting solar performance targets.

AviProtek® T – Transparent
SEND INQUIRY
Walker has partnered with Pilkington to offer AviProtek® T, a highly effective yet discrete bird friendly glass solution using Pilkington NA’s pyrolytic coated glass.
More details ...

Walker Glass etches patterned contrasts on the pyrolytic coated outside surface that are visible to birds but barely perceptible to humans. These patterns adhere to the industry accepted 2×4 rule endorsed by leading scientists. This transparent product can be used as a surface 1 component in insulated units, combined with a low-e glass on surface 3.
