Description

Designed to create facades of unique and stunning appearance; it is harder than granite, with a crystal appearance.

The crystallized 18 mm thick glass panel is reinforced by a fibre-glass matting and the panel is profiled with a 10 or 12 x 3 mm Kerf groove to facilitate easy installation onto two horizontal carrier rails (top and bottom). Other fixing systems are available and all are designed to ensure simple installation to reduce costs and the need for a specialist workforce.
