Designer textured glass
Guardian Industries, Auburn Hills, Mich., partnered with Joel Berman Glass Studios to make designer textured glass available at a lower cost with shorter lead times, according to a Guardian release. Guardian will be the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of Berman Glass editions through the company's new interiors product line called Guardian InGlass. Guardian will produce these Berman Glass editions at its Richburg, S.C., float glass plant. The products are available in panels up to 72-inches by 144-inches in various thicknesses, and can be ordered in custom sizes. The Guardian Berman Glass editions include four designs based on hand-carved molds—être, ima, aquí and esto. Inspired from Joel Berman Glass Studios' kiln-cast line, these organic, free-form textures offer an architectural style ideally suited for a wide range of interior and exterior applications, including walls, doors, shower enclosures, railings and balustrades, as well as other uses. The textured glass is translucent, creating privacy while inviting in light.Guardian Industries, Auburn Hills, Mich.
