Genuine GOLD leaf backed LEED Glass Plaque
This beautiful variation is based on the clear glass plaque, which is backed with genuine precious metal leaf of the highest pureness and visual quality, sandwiched between protective adhesive foil layers.
We have developed this technique together with an artisan from the Bavarian town of Schwabach, which, in the last 500 years, has developed into one of the world-leading centers for gold-beating, a technique developed more than 5000 years ago. We source the precious metals only from a most reputable company with generations of experience and which pays particular attention to environmental care and emission reduction.
Our application technique has been tested in extreme conditions of heat, cold, UV-exposure and wind, and has proven to take the sweet spot in the combination of price, quality, robustness, ecology – and pristine beauty.
After extensive research and testing we have chosen, for the certification levels:
PLATINUM – a beautiful, champagne-coloured mixture of platinum and red gold
GOLD – genuine yellow 24k gold leaf
SILVER – natural silver is not suited to this application. We use genuine white platinum instead
CERTIFIED – genuine green gold (a trace of oxidized copper gives the colour)
The plaques are
- Water jet cut, deep sandblasted, hand-finished
- Provided with a protective coat which reduces environmental soiling
- manufactured in Germany
- 400 mm x 19 mm thick
- made from about 57% recycled glass
Gold-plated mounting hardware (here) is now included with this product!
Mounting hardware (3 round pins) is included and will be shipped with your plaque. If you require custom hardware (or no hardware), please email us.
