Opacity is an indicator of how much light passes through a material. For glass, a higher opacity will mean that less detail can be seen when you look through it, which translates to higher privacy when used in homes and buildings. ODL’s privacy rating system uses a process that tests the amount of light that is able to pass through the glass that we use in our stylized products. Using a tool called a spectrophotometer, every texture or pattern of a glass design is tested to see how much light passes through each particular part of the piece. The readings from the spectrophotometer are then used to calculate the exact privacy level for each glass design.
The new privacy rating system from ODL breaks each glass design and style into one of four categories: Low Privacy, Medium Privacy, High Privacy, and Maximum Privacy. This new system replaces the previous number scale and provides a precise and proven opacity level for every ODL design.
