RIG currently offers spandrels both in lead free ceramic frit and silicone based opaci-coat. Spandrels are designed to harmonize with vision areas on the outside of a building. RIG offers a variety of standard colors and has the ability to utilize a vast array of custom colors. We fabricate the ceramic product using a roller coater to apply the material and then we fire the material into the glass in a furnace. Spandrels are offered in monolithic, laminated, and insulating glass.
Spandrels are designed for applications where they are glazed in front of a uniform opaque background. They are not applicable for use in applications where there is daylight or artificial light on the opposite side. RIG recommends a full size mock up of any spandrel glass due to the variations in paint color and the changes sight conditions have on the aesthetic appearance of this product.
