The outer face and back layers of the panel product, sandwiching the core. The front cladding is typically clear or a transparent color. The rear cladding has options for clear, transparent or dichroic colors, and clear or transparent color mirrors. Either side can be finished in glossy, frosted or matte surfaces.
The center portion of the panel product, sandwiched between a face and back cladding. Typically patterned to influence light by reflection, refraction, transmission, diffusion and dissipation.
The direction in which the panel core strips run. Typically parallel to the long or short edge, customer specified. Influences how the panel is illuminated.
- grain thickness
The thickness of the core strips that make up the grain in a panel product.
High Density with regard to the terminals on Terrazzo products. It has the greatest density.
- light conducting channels
Optical pathways designed to direct light from one point and diffuse at another location. Constructed from acrylic.
- light guides
See light conducting channels.
- light point
In Lumina panels, the illuminated facet on the face of the product created by a light source and the paterns in the core strips.
- light point density
In Lumina panels, the count of light points per square foot on the face.
- pattern density
The percentage of the patterning per unit area in a panel product. The greater the precentage, the denser the pattern and more visual obscurity through the transparent panel.
Sensitile Cement with regard to our Terrazzo products.
In terrazzo products, the visible portion of the light conducting channel on the surface. Typically rectangular, but can be round or square. Size, shape and density are customer specified.
