Spandrel Glass

Spandrel glass panels are opaque, colored panels designed to hide the electrical and mechanical areas between the floors of a building. To opacify glass for use in a spandrel application, Goldray Glass has several decorative glass techniques to choose from, including: Ceramic Frit, Digital Ceramic Printing, and OPACI-COAT-300®.

The most commonly used coating for spandrel panels, OPACI-COAT-300® is a water-based, silicone glass coating that can be applied to any glass type to provide opacification. Goldray Glass is proud to partner with ICD Coatings as an Approved Factory Fabricator of OPACI-COAT-300®. With a wide color range, superior durability, and fallout protection, OPACI-COAT-300® provides architects and designers with more design opportunities than any other coating for glass.
