What is Spandrel Glass? How Is It Made?
This decorative glass is a product that’s coated with a colored paint-like material. These coatings come in endless tints that can be applied to numerous glass types. We make all spandrel glass by applying these coatings in-house. Delivering superior opacification for multiple glazing products, we use ICD’s OPACI-COAT 300® water-based silicone coatings. To ensure even, smooth application, they’re applied by spraying or roller-coating the paint onto glass sheets.

Which Glass Types Can I Get? Can Colored Paints Be Applied to All?
Spandrel paints can be applied to almost all glass types. Regardless of which shade, you can request any annealed, monolithic or tempered glass type. So, we apply colored coatings to the glasses below.

  • Clear & low iron
  • Low E & IG
  • Tinted & reflective
  • Mirrored

Where Can I Use Spandrel Glass? Which Kind of Applications?
This painted glass has limitless applications. So, you can use spandrel hues in virtually any interior or exterior business or home project. Here’s a list of diverse examples:

  • Vertical glass glazing
  • Accent walls & dividers
  • Curtain wall infill panels
  • Entrance doors & windows

Will These Painted Coatings Work for Dual-Sided Colored Glass?
Yes, they will. Spandrel coatings can be applied to the backside of any type of glass. This means complementary shades can be chosen to match the front side of reflective and tinted products. Perfect for exterior multi-story commercial buildings, dual-sided decorative glass can hide the mechanical components between floors.

Why Is Spandrel Glass Ideal for Kitchen & Bath Projects?
Because it makes for simple maintenance. A great alternative to tile or stone, this ornamental glass has no grout where mold or mildew can hide. So, spandrel counters and backsplashes require little scrubbing. And, if you order Diamond Seal glass coating, it will protect these colored kitchen and bath surfaces. This will make them easier to clean and look like new for a number of years.
