Channel Bronze Silvered Glass

Nathan Allan created the perfect product for Façade and Wall applications

Nathan Allan - Private Client

With façade and wall applications becoming more prevalent, Nathan Allan created the perfect product for these specific projects, a brilliant, shimmering, architectural glass formed in 3-Dimensional fluted patterns, with a silvered back finish.

Channel Bronze Silvered Glass is opaque, which allows the glass to cover and block any back wall surface. As such, the opaque backer provides a solid surface which can be easily adhered to another surface for easy installation. The front surface is lined with deep fluting, coated in silver. Turning on the lights will make this glass brightly illuminate and reflect, vividly enhancing the surrounding areas of any project.

The Glass
Recently, Nathan Allan Glass Studios received an inquiry about producing a new cast glass design for façade applications. A request was offered to Barry Allan, director of Nathan Allan Glass Studios, to produce something rich and vibrant, and dark in colour. Concentrating on their Linear design theme, which has been very popular in 2018, Mr. Allan selected the Freeform Series Channel Glass. In addition, the glass was produced in a deep, bronze tint, to highlight the tint and the deep fluted pattern. A silvered (mirror) finish was added to the back surface, which makes the design even more crisp, with more clarity.

Ideally designed for Façade applications, the Channel Bronze Silvered glass is perfect for Wall applications behind front lobby registration desks, and on the front bar dies of the desk itself. The shimmering design brightens and magnifies any space.

Specifications
For this private client’s retail space, the front counter was clad with the Channel Bronze Silvered glass. The Channel glass is produced with 10 millimetres Bronze Glass, and the back surface of the glass is finished in silver to create a mirrored effect. A protective coating is added over the silver finish. 6 Panels of Channel Bronze Silvered glass were produced, up to 1,727 millimetres by 1,067 millimetres.

Installation
Each Channel Bronze Silvered panel is resting on a steel bottom ledge, with soft glass cushions place under the glass. The panels are placed approximately 1.5 millimetres apart, to reduce the seam lines. In fact, the seam lines are not even noticeable. To secure the panels to the face of the desk counter, a special compatible adhesive is used.
