What is the best glass type for color matching?
Low iron glass is best for color matching as it has less tint in the glass which distorts the color applied to the back of the glass. Goldray typically uses Vitro's Starphire glass which is the most optically clear glass used in construction projects.
What information do you need to do a custom color match?
We typically need something physical to match to when doing a custom color. Paint chips, Pantone colors or physical samples work best, but we have also done color matches using more non-traditional items. We once even matched backpainted glass walls to the color of the toilet seat!
How do I get a custom sample made for my project?
To have a custom sample made, contact your local sales rep or inside sales person at the Goldray head office. We will go through the project requirements with you and even help to design the best product for your application when necessary.
What type of file format do you need for custom artwork?
Custom artwork can be supplied in any vector format such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or even a PDF file.
Do you have a marker board with a writable surface that you can also project onto?
Yes, Goldray's writable, projectable marker boards are available in a large variety of standard and custom colors, both magnetic and non-magnetic.
Do you have double sided marker boards?
Double sided marker boards are available in a variety of standard and custom colors and can be either magnetic or non-magnetic. And if you want different colors on each side – no problem!
Does your laminated glass have acoustical properties?
Goldray’s decorative laminated glass is produced using either EVA, PVB, or SentryGlas interlayers and has the same acoustical properties as clear laminated glass. Contact your sales rep or inside salesperson for the acoustical ratings on specific types of laminated glass.
How do I specify your decorative glass products for my project?
Our technical and product information can be found in the Glass Products section of our website. We would also be happy to provide a custom short form specification for you for any of your projects. Please contact either your local sales rep or inside salesperson at the Goldray head office.
Do you have full systems available or do I need to specify all the components separately?
Goldray has full systems available for marker boards and wall systems. Contact your local sales rep or inside salesperson at the Goldray head office for more details.
