Vanceva Design checklist Below are 10 easy steps to realising your customised Vanceva Design laminated glass.
A visit to Vanceva Design's interactive website could entail the following sequence:
1Log on to www. vanceva. com 2Click on 'Architectural' followed by 'Vanceva Design' and 'Basic Studio'.
3Pick colours and patterns, experiment with basic combinations, combine layers. Use 'rotate' tool to start 3D animation sequence to view sample from both sides.
4Click 'Advanced Studio' for more options, following a quick registration. Experiment with a larger colour palette to create samples.
5Apply the final design to four different photographs for a broad indication of what the sample created might look like in reality.
If the sample is what is required, save the design, and/or send it to colleagues.
6If still uncertain, create more samples to compare with the first.
7Save the final design.
8Click on 'Request Sample' or 'Contact Solutia'.
9Click on 'Resources / Links' to locate the nearest Vanceva design partner for questions regarding manufacture.

Summary lVanceva Design is an interlayer for laminated architectural glass available in nine patterns and 10 colours giving a spectrum of more than 600 colours.
lThe patterns and colours are protected from outside stresses and will remain stable over the years because the pattern is encapsulated between two coloured or clear PVB (polyvinyl butyral) films which are in turn sealed between two layers of glass.
lLaminated glass with Vanceva Design also has the benefits of standard laminated glass - safety, security, solar, UV and acoustic control.
lVanceva Design coloured laminated architectural glass can be customised and produced in widths of up to 2.25m and pattern in widths of up to 1.53m. It is available in relatively small volumes and also as samples from Vanceva Design Studios.
lLaminated glass with Vanceva Design can be made in any thickness from 4.4mm through to bullet resistant (25mm) and higher specification glasses.
lLaminated glass with Vanceva Design can also be produced as a low-E glass to reach the new Building Regulations Part L specification.
lLight transmission will depend on the number and type of coloured and patterned interlayers used - however the Vanceva Design manufacturer (Solutia) or the laminator will be able to calculate the light transmission or make up a sample to the required specification and test it in their laboratories.
lLaminated architectural glass with Vanceva Design complies with all the relevant standards covering laminated glass and its properties including BS EN ISO 12543 - 1-6 laminated glass and its properties; BS EN 356 governing glass products liable to vandalism;
BS 6206 (and prEN 12600 which will replace BS 6206) the safety impact standard.
lLaminated architectural glass with Vanceva Design is as easy to handle as standard laminated glass and can be cut on site if required.
lVanceva Design can be incorporated into sealed units and used in any form of architectural cladding systems where standard laminated glass can also be installed.
