Bendheim’s New Oberon™ Etched Glass Lends Depth to Interior and Exterior Surfaces

Bendheim has launched its Etched Elements™ Collection with the introduction of Oberon™ architectural etched glass.

Featuring a proprietary design in a substantial ½-inch thickness, Oberon’s dual-sided, fine etched surfaces echo and enhance each other.  The multifaceted design adds a sense of body and depth to interior partitions and building facades, whether viewed up-close or from afar.
 
Oberon’s acid-etched pattern is inspired by micro-bone structures and natural biomorphic forms and is the result of Bendheim’s collaboration with an emerging graphic artist. The obscuring design offers a degree of privacy while maintaining a sense of openness and allowing for daylighting. The pattern’s strong sense of dimensionality and depth is magnified in edge-lighting applications. Oberon can be used to create decorative glass partitions, stair railings, balustrades, shower doors, ceilings, doors and windows, and expansive glass facades in a variety of architectural applications and project types, including hospitality, retail, corporate, and healthcare settings.

The permanent, chemically etched Oberon surfaces are exceptionally fine and maintenance-friendly. They are superior to sandblasted and particle-etched glass surfaces, and are naturally resistant to staining and fingerprints over the product’s lifetime.

The unique Oberon pattern is applied to ultra-clear (low-iron) glass, resulting in a highly sought-after brilliant, crystalline, nearly colorless aesthetic. The glass provides a sense of privacy, gently diffuses light, reduces glare, and minimizes continuous reflections. Designed to the bird-safe “2 x 4 rule”, Oberon can be used to create bird-friendly exterior glass walls that curtail the risk of accidental bird collisions.
 
Oberon can be specified in sizes up to 90" by 124" (2.29 m by 3.15 m) in thickness of approximately 1/2" (12 mm) and in safety tempered form. To learn more about Bendheim decorative architectural glass, please visit www.BendheimArchitectural.com.
