Speciality Glass - Lumi Frit™
Lumi Frit™ Surface 1 fritted glass allows architects to create customized, brilliant white glass facades. Surface one frit is rare because of the technical challenges of producing a colored glass surface that can be exposed to the elements. However, there are numerous benefits:
- Lumi Frit minimizes reflections, making patterns more pronounced and easier to read from a distance
- By interrupting continuous reflections, the glass becomes visible to birds, mitigating the risk of accidental bird strikes, especially when the pattern is designed to the 2×4 bird-friendly rule.
- Surface 1 dot/mesh patterns can be used to project images on the glass facade.
Lumi Frit™ glass is available from Bendheim in a virtually unlimited range of patterns. It is customized to the requirements of each facade project, panel size is determined by the design and wind loads and can reach sizes up to 84 x 165 inches.
