CertainTeed and 3M Partner to Offer Beveled Glass Alternative

CertainTeed Corporation and 3M have partnered to produce Prism Grid(TM), a new window application that offers the look of custom beveled glass.

Employing 3M's patented optical film technology, Prism Grid transforms the appearance of glass in a way that allows light to filter through, casting a rainbow of colors and creating the look of beveled glass at an affordable cost.

Homeowners can now design their own windows using Prism Grid, as the technology can be applied to any CertainTeed vinyl, replacement or new construction window or door. While beveled glass can prove costly and difficult to keep clean, Prism Grid gives the same custom look, yet is affordable and requires virtually no maintenance. It is also highly resistant to delamination and fading.

Prism Grid applications combine elegance with functionality, providing a full unobstructed view. Virtually any straight-lined pattern can be utilized. Popular patterns include Colonial, Valence, Diamond, Prairie, and Jewel.

"With the Prism Grid feature, homeowners can afford the custom look of beveled glass that's backed with the high quality standards both CertainTeed and 3M are known for," says Maria McDonagh-Forde, marketing communications manager, CertainTeed Window Group. "Prism Grid is available on all CertainTeed windows and patio doors, allowing homeowners to further customize their homes."

With more than 200 years of combined experience represented by CertainTeed and 3M, Prism Grid is backed by a history of quality and excellence. Prism Grid is available nationwide on all CertainTeed windows and patio doors and is being produced at CertainTeed's Corona, California,; Auburn, Washington; Lebanon, Indiana; and Richmond Virginia facilities.
