Walker Textures® acid-etched glass with a low-e coating is available in Opaque and Satin finishes on surface one. Choose an Opaque finish to ensure privacy, or select a Satin treatment for a subtle gloss and slight transparency. Either way, the finish will effectively deter birds while optimizing daylight. These acid-etched options can be paired with a Solarban® low-e coating of your choice from Vitro on surface two. Together, these treatments offer a powerful glazing solution.

This impressive product combination is already hard at work. At Swarthmore College’s Maxine Singer Hall in Pennsylvania, Walker Textures® glass with Solarban® 60 on surface two softens the flow of daylight into the building’s atrium and helps the project meet Swarthmore’s rigorous Environmental Sustainability Framework, equivalent to LEED® Platinum criteria. More recent uses include the expansion of the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, OK and upcoming renovations to the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD.
