Diffusion and transparency: explore the technical capabilities of our custom laminated glass.
This quarter, our Quarterly Subscription Program samples does a technical exploration of two of the dimensions our glass can be tailored to your specific requirements: diffusion and transparency.
Diffusion: create a frosted or blurred effect in glass partitions and doors, or mute reflectivity and glare over mirrored walls.
Transparency: create privacy with a diffused sheer look incorporating any color.

Customize the diffusion of our custom laminated glass
By incorporating either an Interfrosted interlayer or a selectable “acid frosted” surface, the three grey samples in this quarter’s collection demonstrate our ability to customize a blurred diffusion in our custom laminated glass. The opacity of these three samples is the same, however the diffusion and tactile qualities are different depending on the frosting.
An example of our acid etched surface glass demonstrating heavy diffusion in both the glass door’s adjacent panel, as well as colorized wall cladding.
An application featuring our Interfrosted glass, also colorized and demonstrating a medium-etch effect.
Product Customization Options
- Available in any degree of etched frosting for bespoke diffusion and “blurriness”
- Available in custom colors
Double-sided applications (glass partition walls and frameless glass doors) to create beautiful blurred delineators between spaces. Combine with a mirrored backing layer in single-sided applications (mirrored feature walls, mirrored wall cladding, elevator cabs) to create a stunning “Ghost Mirror” effect where glare and reflectivity need to be muted.
Control the transparency of our custom laminated glass
Incorporating our Interpainted Glass™, the white sample included in this quarter’s collection demonstrates our ability to customize the transparency of our laminated glass. The sample included represents an ALT (allowable light transmittance) of 50%.
An example of our nearly completely opaque Interpainted glass with a glowing backlight effect, demonstrating the customizable transparency of Archetype’s glass from our Quarterly Subscription Program’s First Quarter Collection.
Product Customization Options
- Allowable light transmittance (ALT) is available from completely transparent through to fully opaque
- Available in any color – not just white
Ideal for double-sided applications (glass partition walls, frameless glass doors) to create sequestered private spaces. Also ideal when backlit and used in “glowing” single-sided applications.
