Walker Glass and Vitro Glass have once again teamed up to expand their low-e coated acid-etched glass offering.

Architects now have the choice between two full surface finishes from Walker Textures® on surface 1 with Solarban® high performance coatings from Vitro Glass on surface 2. This combination provides multiple benefits such as privacy, energy performance and a uniquely aesthetic look to the overall building design.

Both Walker Textures® Satin and Opaque finishes offer excellent wear, stain and scratch resistance properties while providing excellent functional elements such as high visible light transmittance and glare control with no significant impact on solar performance. They are also highly effective as bird safe glass solutions. Combined with Solarban® high performance coatings from Vitro Glass, these finishes offer a truly innovative design option.

“We are excited to offer the architectural market a solution that combines design and solar performance – ideal for non-vision glazing applications. The acid-etched finish on surface 1 reduces reflection, provides privacy and high VLT without compromising U-value and solar heat gain targets,” says Marc Deschamps, Director of Products & Business Development at Walker.

“Walker Glass and Vitro have teamed up to offer architects an array of innovative glass solutions over the last decade or so,” said Nathan McKenna, marketing manager, Vitro Architectural Glass. “We are pleased to build on that legacy with low-e, acid-etched glass, which offers an unprecedented array of benefits in a striking new product.”
