Digital printing on glass is new technology used to print imagery, patterns, logos, or text to the surface of flat glass. This allows for new possibilities in architecture and interior design as decorative glass provides high levels of customization, translucency, and light diffusion to enhance any design.
Trulite is enthusiastic to add TruDeco Digital Printed Glass to our wide range of product offerings. The new innovative technology can be utilized on fully fabricated Monolithic, Laminated, or Insulated Glass units in an interior or exterior application. Any design or vision will be printed directly onto the glass prior to tempering to create a permanent bond to the glass. We are able to offer a vast range of vibrant colors including metallic. We are willing to assist you on any size project. Trulite is now able to turn your vision into a reality, while offering multiple products needed for your project.
Glass cabinet door inserts are an ideal compromise between solid cabinetry and open shelving. They help to open a kitchen up visually and showcase striking dishware and decorative item while keeping out dust and debris. Trulite is able to offer any number of combinations of pattern glass as well as frosted and laminated combination.
Equally stunning is the nearly endless combinations of leaded style units available. Trulite is unique in being one of the few US manufacturers of these handmade pieces. Make your cabinets, kitchen and countertops stand out from the ordinary with extraordinary cabinet inserts from Trulite.
Decorative laminated glass by Trulite, Sumiglass, is manufactured by encapsulating a variety of materials between two or more layers of adhesive and two or more panes of glass. Using a proprietary technology and dedicated equipment insures a permanent bond.
The decorative interlayer consists of many different materials including printed films, rice paper, fabrics, wood, fiber tones, weaves, metallic and holographic films and aluminum. Applications are recommended for interior use only. Trulite welcomes the opportunity to laminate customer supplied or specified materials with its Sumiglass process. Please contact us for testing of these materials to insure compatibility with our process and your application.
Trulite offers 15 standard patterns. Custom design materials and colors can also be produced. With the near limitless combinations available using Vanceva PVB interlayers your imagination is your only limitation. Whether creating logos for corporate identity, privacy shading or merely decorating for aesthetic purposes, our printed and laminated patterns offer the design versatility you are looking for.
Trulite uses digital ceramic printing, the most advanced and versatile glass printing machines; ideal for both external and internal architectural and transportation glass print applications. Fully compatible with digital ceramic inks and unique image processing software, these high-tech printers go far beyond the capabilities of traditional screen and UV glass printing.
This allows Trulite to use the world’s best digital glass printers and widest color gamut of digital ceramic inks. Glass combines art with functionality and can be found in the interior and exterior of some of the most iconic structures across the globe.
Any pattern can be designed by engraving a groove in the surface of the glass. Different profiles and groove widths are available and can be duplicated time after time by our state of the art CNC grooving equipment. Straight lines and shape designs can be created on many different glass substrates, including mirror. Combine this process with many other Trulite Specialty Products and just imagine what you can do with the decorative glass.
Straight edge polishing capabilities, with multiple edge options, are an efficient and productive way to add value to fabricated glass products. Beveled mirrors enhance the effect of a reflective surface, and a grooved surface adds an additional level of sophistication to a product line. Bevels are available in standard widths and thickness of glass. Glass edge miters are available in a vast variety of angles to turn any corner, or meet the requirements of hardware manufactures for any installation needs.

Traditionally pattern glass products have been used to obscure vision areas requiring privacy but allowing virtually the same light transmission as clear glass. The level of obscurity depends on the pattern which has been imprinted into the glass as it is made. This process of rolling the still hot and soft glass imparts a 3 dimensional texture to one side. The opposite side is relatively flat. The most common use of pattern glass is office screening, decorative partitions, rest room facilities, patio furniture, shower doors and entryways.
Trulite stocks a wide variety of pattern glass from 1/8” up to and including 1/2” thicknesses. We can provide a single cut size lite, case quantities, or whole truck loads depending on your needs. Traditionally there are many different patterns that have been produced by a variety of manufacturers. Some patterns may no longer be produced or available in limited quantities only. Not all patterns or processes are available in all locations but our network of branches across America can ship virtually anywhere. Available with common fabrication for holes, notches and hinge cut outs. These products are typically available as both tempered and insulated.
