What is Specialty Glass?

Mirrors consist of high quality, annealed float glass designated either mirror quality or mirror select. Mirrors are made by depositing a layer of silver on one surface of the glass. The surface chosen is the score side, because the tin side does not accept silver properly. The reflective quality of the mirror depends upon the thickness of the silver layer, glass thickness, and glass color.

What is Spandrel Glass?

Spandrel glass is not specifically a type of glass. Instead, it refers to the use of obscure glass in non-vision areas of a building. One of these areas is the spandrel of a building. The spandrel is the part of the wall between the head of one window and the sill of the window above it. For aesthetic reasons, this area is often covered with glass.
