- Less expensive... a fraction of the
cost of stained glass.
Flexibility - Provides church and architecture
designers with an opportunity to create their
own designs. Use Krinklglas® for new construction,
to remodel, or to save money by adding color, privacy
and extra insulation to existing plain glass windows
instead of replacement.
Colors - Prism-like faceted surfaces
give radiant stained-glass appearance in a virtually
unlimited range of colors, multi-colors, patterns
Resistant - Virtually unbreakable...
vandalproof... for added durability, security,
safety and reduced maintenance. Can withstand
impact from stones, bricks and bottles without
shattering. Textured surface "hides"
Resistant - Impervious to the elements,
meets hurricane building codes, won't deform under
heat or crack in extreme cold conditions... proven
durability for over 25 years with minimum color
fading. Better insulator than glass.
Clean - Resists most chemicals... graffiti,
paint and other problem materials are easily removed
with common cleaners and solvents.
Install - Much lighter than glass. Can
be cut, drilled and worked using conventional
tools. Installers should allow about 1/8"
edge clearance when framing to provide for expansion
and contraction of the panel. Edge engagement
around the panel perimeter must be a minimum of
3/8" for spans under 24", and increased
proportionately up to 1" for a 4' x 10' panel
for exterior applications. Any quality construction
grade silicone sealant may be used for edge sealing
without fear of leakage.
BEAUTY - Multi-faceted textured surfaces
create an extraordinary, gem-like color/light brilliance
that captures the very essence of architectural
and decorative genius. Custom color matching and
design re-creations are a specialty.
- Unique, invisible fiberglass reinforcement makes
panels impact resistant and shatterproof...much
stronger, lighter and safer than glass. Krinklglas®
can withstand impact from such objects as projected
stones, bricks and bottles without shattering. This
proves invaluable in reducing costs of both material
replacement and additional installations.
- Impervious to temperature change and all forms
of precipitation and soot, Krinklglas® doesn't
deform under heat like a thermoplastic, nor crack
under extreme cold conditions. The detrimental effects
of sunlight exposure, yellowing and color fading
are minimized with UV inhibitors.
SECURITY - Krinklglas® Translucent
panels let light through without glare, yet provide
a special privacy and extra visual protection not
available with transparent materials.
- Chemical and abrasion resistant to most acids,
mild alkalies and petroleum-based solvents, Krinklglas®
can be used in most corrosive environments. Its
textured surfaces "hide" scratches and
mars from knives and other sharp objects and panels
are easily cleaned of dirt and graffiti using ordinary
cleaners or common solvents.
