The Wire is the first architectural project in the world to include glass windows digitally printed with Dip-Tech Extra Durable S1 Inks. Alley, Poyner, Macchietto Architecture sought a solution to replace the existing insulated metal panels with glass that would increase the flow of natural light without compromising the look of the original facade of the historic building. To simulate the no-gloss finish of the metal panels, printing the custom dot pattern directly onto the external side of the glass was the only solution. Using a mixture of the black and white Extra Durable S1 inks, Insulite successfully achieved the desired effect. Kurt Hartman, a Printing Specialist at Insulite shared, "Thanks to the versatility of Dip-Tech's Extra Durable S1 inks, we were able to replace the old painted steel insulating panels and confidently print on the external side of the glass." Hartman also shared, "our customers were so pleased with the results, and from a distance they were unable to differentiate between the original metal panels and those that had been replaced with printed glass."
