Glass showcases and UV bonding – We enhance your products

Glass showcases and UV bonding – We enhance your products

Our UV bonded glass showcases are designed for maximum protection of the objects to be displayed.

The anti-glare glass types offered by Galvolux reduce the light reflection coefficient and increase transparency, improving contrast effects to optimise the presentation of the objects on display.

Bars, Restaurants, Museums, Jewellers, Shops and other commercial contexts are places where showcases play an important role in protecting and enhancing the products or objects on display. Float Extrawhite glass, with its extremely flat surface, allows the objects inside the showcase to be highlighted without creating visual distortion.

The advantages of UV bonding

  • Authenticity: The bonding is invisible to the eye and enhances the aesthetics of the showcase.
  • Functionality: All you need for cleaning is a damp cloth and water without any additional glass cleaner.
  • Versatility: Two different types of bonding for the joints of your showcases.

New collection of design ribbed glass - Madras® by Galvolux

We are pleased to expand our offer of Madras® glasses with four new decors. They are also available on request on Extrawhite glass and can also be used on coloured glass

Possible applications:

  • Doors
  • Walls
  • Glass partitions
  • Sliding doors
  • Walk-in wardrobes
  • Shower enclosures
  • Furniture coverings

The versatility of Acilux Shine glass

The versatility of Acilux Shine glass

Acilux Shine

The glasses in the Acilux Shine collection can be ordered as a simple clear glass sheet for a variety of uses, but very often are carried different types of processing out to change the appearance of the final glass.

 

Acilux shine is the perfect combination of a glossy clear glass and an satined glass

This glass is available in Extrawhite quality to soften the typical green tint of glass.

It maintains the brilliance of clear glass but also the opacity of a satined glass. In this way, the typical reflectivity of glass is eliminated, making the surface slightly opaque but still glossy. 

 

Applications and processing

Acilux Shine is particularly suitable for digital printing as it softens the typical reflection of glass in the light and allows for the best visualisation of the quality of the printed images. 

Acilux Shine is also often used in combination with the G-Laser surface lasing technique.

The areas of Acilux Shine uses are many: from kitchen tops and splashbacks to bathroom wall coverings or simply as glass tables and furnishing elements.

The light satin finish of Acilux Shine makes it particularly elegant for glass doors and walls for the interior decoration of living spaces and offices.

 

Cleaning

Acilux Shine glass is particularly scratch-resistant and easy to clean.

Sustenibility and Safety - The new Safety Mirror generation

Sustenibility and Safety - The new Safety Mirror generation

The main aim of “Safety First” products of Galvolux is to protect the health and safety of the consumers. The products from the “Safety First” line correspond to the latest national and international certifications that regulate the sales and use of glass products in indoor areas.

Bathrooms are often relatively small and can therefore bear risks of different kinds. In order to avoid possible injury in case of glass breakage, Galvolux recommends the exclusive use of safety glass for bathroom furnishings and showers.

With the line Safety First by Galvolux safety is guaranteed!

GSD (Galvolam Safety Doublemirror) -  Doublemirror for bathroom
People are exposed to many risks in private households, especially in the bathroom. When glass breaks it usually shatters into sharp fragments of various sizes that can lead to injuries.

The GSD (Galvolam Safety Doublemirror) safety mirrors from Galvolux comply with the regulations for laminated safety glass and are designed in such a way that the
scattering of sharp fragments is largely avoided. In addition, the durability of the mirror is guaranteed. The GSD mirrors are produced entirely in the factory in Bioggio (Switzerland).
