Schott has announced that its new high-quality fluted sheet glass, which is the culmination of two ongoing design trends: low-iron glass that offers clarity and semi-transparent glass that offers a sense of privacy, is now available for new applications in homes and offices.
Schott Rivuletta® high-quality fluted sheet glass is now available for new applications in homes and offices to enhance the elegance of interior partitions, conference room windows, sidelights, and other applications. Exceptionally clear and smooth to the touch, Rivuletta® low-iron glass with thin flutes is ideal for a variety of design applications where semi-privacy is desired.
“Glass has become a mainstay in the modern home and office, opening up space, drawing in natural light, and offering a contemporary minimalist design,” said Donald Press, General Manager, Architecture and Design at Schott North America. “Rivuletta® glass, with its fluting that evokes images of flowing water, further enhances interior design capabilities. This unique glass creates a distinctive complement to conference room windows, office doors, and room partitions.”
Rivuletta® glass is the culmination of two ongoing design trends: low-iron glass that offers clarity and semi-transparent glass that offers a sense of privacy. Rivuletta® glass is an ultra-clear optical glass that is fire polished on both sides, a process that also seals the pores of the glass to protect it from chemicals and stains. For semi-privacy, Rivuletta® glass features intrinsic 6-millimeter flutes on one side that allow light into the room, but slightly obscure the view through the glass.
Optically colourless and clear, Rivuletta® glass can also be laminated and tempered so that it qualifies as safety glass, introducing a number of architectural possibilities.
