Metropolis (Glass)

Metropolis is a series of hand cut glass, assembled in a repetitive, irregular module. The Metropolis series incorporates difference sized tiles of similar or contrasting shades and tones, with both matte and reflective surfaces. The combination of smooth and undulated pieces allows for reflection and refraction of light. The tiles display metallic, subdued slate, and veined and corrugated patterns, resulting in a contemporary aesthetic. Material is comprised of up to 75% post-consumer recycled glass.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Metropolis is a series of hand cut glass mosaics, assembled in a repetitive, irregular module. Measurements may vary slightly due to the hand cut character of the product. Colors may vary slightly by production lot. Metropolis is comprised of up to 75% post-consumer recycled glass.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

High

This material has relatively high abrasion resistance. It rates as a 7 or higher on the Mohs scale. Quartzite or granite typically fall into this range. This material is less likely to scratch than marble, limestone, onyx, slate, etc.

ABSORPTION

Low

This material is virtually non-porous. No sealer is required and it is less likely to stain.

ACID SENSITIVITY

Minimal

This material is minimally sensitive to acids. It will not acid etch or lose its surface sheen when exposed to acidic liquids such as lemons or tomatoes.

FREEZE-THAW

Vertical Exteriors

Due to this material's texture, its Abrasion Resistance rating, color fastness and tensile strength, this material is suitable for vertical exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern. Use TCNA standards for setting in exteriors and consult an engineer regarding fastening systems and tensile strength required for your project. This material is not suitable for exterior paving applications.
