With the capability to print any digital image onto glass, a popular choice for our customers is to replicate textures onto printed glass splashbacks. For example, instead of installing real wood, tiles, bricks or marble, an imitation of those textures are printed onto glass.
Our customers choose printed glass splashbacks for many reasons:
It is simple to install: glass is easy to mount, and printed glass can come be customised to as big as 2800mm x 3700mm.
It is more durable: all printed glass have been tempered, which makes it stronger and more resistant to breakage
It is easier to clean: given its durability and smooth surface, it is very easy to clean and wipe down
It is more sustainable: glass is a recyclable resource and the ink used it eco-friendly
It is more customisable: since any digital image can be printed, the possibilities for choice are endless
The turnaround time is fast: glass is easy to cut and process to the necessary size and shape. This coupled with the locality of Visual Glass Tech’s operations means that jobs can be completed quickly
And of course, this capability is not just limited to printed glass splashbacks. It can be used throughout an entire glass building for very meaningful purposes such as to preserve cultural identity. For example, an amazing project undertaken by architecture firm MVRDV using printed glass in The Netherlands involved recreating a traditional Dutch farm. In order to achieve this, all the remaining historical farms in the area were photographed, then collated to create an average farm façade image. After playing with features such as levels of translucency and shading according to the need for light and views throughout the structure, the image was then printed onto 5,000 pieces of glass panels that were assembled together to create a marvellous piece of architecture.
Not only is it beautiful and a breathtakingly accurate replication of a historical icon, the durability of the printed glass ensures that the traditional structure will stand the test of time.
The possibilities with printed glass are endless, enabling a combination of stunning design, long-lasting durability and easy maintenance.
