SNOQUALMIE, Wash., June 16, 2011 – Technical Glass Products' (TGP) latest online tool – the Pilkington Profilit™ Texture Module – helps design professionals select the best channel glass surface texture for a given wall, façade or partition. The module displays various glass patterns on a dual-glazed interior partition, visually demonstrating how the different surface variations affect light dispersion, visibility and aesthetics.

"Design professionals often have questions about how a particular channel glass texture will look or function in an end-use design," says Jeff Razwick, vice president of business development for Technical Glass Products. "The Pilkington Profilit Texture Module is designed to help them visualize how light plays through the different surface options."

Users can select from one of five texture swatches on the Pilkington Profilit Texture Module, including recently released Macro, Slim Line and Wave textures. They can alternate between the texture swatches for quick comparison of glass patterns or view each individual texture swatch as a single-glazed application. The page also provides links to view TGP's other finish options and coatings, including Pilkington Profilit OW, a nearly colorless low iron composition channel glass.

While the online tool is intended to help facilitate the design process, colors and textures may vary and TGP encourages buyers to contact the company for more information on how a specific product will appear in a given environment or application.
