Manufacturer's Product Description

Provides the feeling of sunlit glass block with a fraction of the cost, weight and installation difficulties of real glass, as well as full accessibility to the ceiling plenum.

The TRANSPARENCIES™ Luminous Ceiling System gives the same subtly refracted light play as traditional glass blocks, but with just a fraction of the weight, cost, and installation difficulties. Four unique textures are patterned after real glass blocks for truly believable results.

TRANSPARENCIES lightweight, acrylic ceiling panels fit into a texturized, exposed DONN® Brand Suspension System for easy lay-in installation, and the system matches the "mortar joints" for design consistency. Standard fluorescent strip fixtures can be used as the light source and as a cost-effective option on an interior floor. Plus, panels may be easily removed for cleaning or relamping without tools.

Panels consist of nine injection-molded 8"x 8" blocks, factory assembled into a 2'x 2' lay-in panel for fast installation and full accessibility. Available in five translucent colors, 8"x 8" highlighters change the color of an individual block or an entire panel to accentuate your space.

These panels provide the same refracted light play and look as traditional glass block without the weight, cost, and installation difficulties.
