Colour effect glass for architecture
Colour effect glass. Why use it?
Because it makes buildings radiate colour, which makes people look on in fascination. Colour effect glass is a façade attraction. However, it is also a sight to behold as a piece of glass artwork in foyers and outdoor areas.

Our colour effect glass
Application and processing
Colour effect glass panes are available in thicknesses from 1 to 6 mm and in dimensions up to 5.80 x 2.55 m in butt joints, or max. 1.08 x 0.8 m as a single pane. The coating can be applied to float glass or borosilicate glass. For exterior use, we manufacture the panes as triple-laminated safety glass (LSG); for interior use also as double-laminated LSG. Colour effect coatings on curved panes or glass bodies (tubes) are possible as well. Coated glass can also be embedded as an inlay in laminated glass. Further information on materials and processing:
Visitors enter the tallest skyscraper in the western hemisphere through entrances on the north and south sides of the building, where they are immediately immersed in 20-metre-high lobbies with fascinating glass installations: the inserted colour effect glass from Prinz Optics switches between emerald green and violet, depending on the incidence of light and the viewing angle.
Colour effect glass enriches architecture
Dichroic coated glass generates colour from light. In daylight, this creates powerful colour overlays both when light is reflected and when it is transmitted through the glass. At night, the positions of the light source and the viewer determine the perception of the colour. Our colour effect glass portfolio includes more than 20 standard colours. Both the extent of the colour gradients and the length over which they extend can be selected.
