The growing demand for shading sandblasting in modern architecture

Date: 25 April 2016
Have you ever seen glass walls of facades with a sort of “foggy” finish, thick in a point and then gradually decreasing to full transparency?   Well, that’s a shading sandblasting effect, obtained using high-technology sandblasting machines equipped with such special working feature.

Architects and designers are putting more and more sandblasted glass in their projects, and the shading technique is particularly useful as it allows to produce a lot of creative and “eye-catching” works.

Facades, balustrades, dividing walls, shower doors, decorated glass doors, these are the items that may require a shaded surface finish. Worldwide leader in the manufacture of automatic sandblasting machines is the Italian company Fratelli Pezza srl.

Located in the very north of Italy the company, founded 1970, produces a wide range of manual and automatic sandblasters including the top of the range equipment MISTRAL EV. The machines of the MISTRAL EV series are equipped with the shading blasting feature and represent leading edge technology in the sector of glass sandblasting equipment. The shading finish obtainable using a MISTRAL EV cabin is absolutely outstanding on a qualitative level: no blank areas, no dark spots, no visible marks or signs. The machine can be programmed so that it varies the blasting pressure during the process, providing an excellent shading effect.

The shading feature can be also used to carry out “curved” engraving works and provides innovative architectural solutions in the field of decorative glass.
