A 'revolutionary' glass-colouring process has entered the UK market via double-glazed engineered glass manufacturer Glass UK. It has secured UK rights to the Australian product GlassKote, a resin hardener added to polyurethane paints and applied by a simple spraying technique. Its makers are, of course, keeping the product's exact chemical composition a secret but are confident enough to offer a 20-year guarantee following tests by the Australian Gas Council, at temperatures up to 180°C. But best of all, the blurb claims, is the colour-matching capability. Computerised mixing technology ensures a massive range of BS and RAL colours and it can be applied to both tempered and non-tempered glass. Telephone 01895 629 940.

The pace is gathering for the launch of FitOut, a brand new business interiors exhibition taking place at the National Hall, Olympia, on 24-26 May 2005. A huge range of top-end products for offices and business environments, from desking to lighting, will be displayed. Visitors can also attend seminars and talks focused on 10 key areas including acoustics, ergonomics, colour and detailing. The show will be supported by the British Council for Offices and the RIBA and by publications including the AJ, The Architectural Review and Mix Interiors. Other highlights include Will Alsop's creation of an unusual space for visitors and exhibitors to meet and mingle. For exhibitor details and registration, visit www. fitout05. com
