Interactive Colour Swatch allows variety of glazing options to be tested on concept designs online

A new online tool has been launched by sustainable glazing experts NSG Group and Pilkington to run in line with two existing Pilkington products, Pilkington Spectrum and Pilkington Sound Simulator. The Interactive Colour Swatch enables designers to view the aesthetic effect that an array of glazing options will have on a given project, with in-depth technical data and a mock urban realm with a variety of architectural styles giving an accurate representation of any potential site.

Faye Barrow, Digital Communications Manager for NSG Group Building Products, explains: “Interactive online tools have huge potential to transform the way glass is specified. We are committed to creating new tools to help our customers and specifiers to visualise their projects, and to make it easier to find the perfect glass product for any application.”

The Interactive Colour Swatch is compatible with Pilkington Spectrum - a glass performance model enabling users to calculate key properties of Insulating Glass Units online - and Pilkington Sound Simulator - which provides an accurate representation of how much external sound is audible through different glass ranges.
