Spandrels & Shadowboxes
Spandrels and shadow boxes are typically aesthetic elements, designed to complement the aesthetic of the glazing, whist providing high levels of thermal insulation.
For shadow boxes, they can be designed to give the perception of depth behind the glazing, again, for aesthetic reasons.
Both spandrels and shadow boxes must be designed to withstand potentially high temperatures due to high levels of solar absorbance, both with regards glass and thermal stress, and interlayer stability.
