Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Egan Visual and Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) announced the release of EganAero™ markerboards, the world’s premiere line of glass markerboards leveraging the unique properties of Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The announcement came in at NeoCon, North America’s largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors, at the Merchandise Mart located in Chicago, where the Egan Visual showroom (Suite 1079) features an array of Egan’s newest innovations including an array of EganAero™ boards.
Corning is the exclusive supplier of specialty glass to Egan Visual for the new EganAero line designed for the contract office furniture market.
EganAero GlassWrite Markerboards with Gorilla Glass offers a variety of customer benefits compared to conventional markerboards comprised of soda-lime glass. Gorilla Glass is a damage-resistant material with properties that enable designers with previously unavailable visual options. Corning Gorilla Glass is thin without compromising durability; therefore, the EganAero is lightweight and easier to install. Compared to conventional markerboards, installation of the EganAero is vastly simplified, and when installed it is up to 88% thinner. This results in a stunning visual appearance. The thin glass also reduces shadowing so that writing can be easier to read compared to conventional glass markerboards. Additional features of the EganAero include a smooth, easy-to-clean surface, with durability, magnet compatibility, and high optical clarity and legibility.
“The collaboration between Corning and Egan Visual – both companies with a history of innovation - has yielded, simply put, stunning results,” said Sean Brown, President of Egan Visual. “EganAero gives designers and architects an entirely new aesthetic platform while delivering unprecedented performance in glass markerboard functionality.”
“Corning Gorilla Glass continues to change the way the world thinks about glass, and we are pleased to be working with Egan on the EganAero product line. Egan is recognized as an industry leader in visual communication products, and EganAero is no exception. It highlights the unique capabilities of Gorilla Glass with an appealing and pragmatic design,” added David Loeber, business director for Large Cover Glass, Corning Incorporated.
