MagnX® is Gx Glass' backpainted metal backed magnetic glass range for use as dry wipe cladding, screens, desk dividers and memo boards; it is a robust, modern material perfect for commercial and contract interior environments - office walls, meeting rooms, breakout areas and menu boards.

MagnX-E is available in 5 mm single sided version suitable for embedded cladding purposes and MagnX-DS the 9 mm double sided version is used for partitioning. The glass surface is easy to clean, hygienic and won't wear out like conventional dry wipe boards.

MagnX uses a standard range of 38 gloss colours, ColourX-S. It is also available in ColourX-NS, a non-standard range, which provides the flexibility to choose your own gloss colour from established colour systems, or utilize colour scanning technology to match to a specific colour.

ColourX paints are water based, making the range environmentally friendly with very low VOC levels and being fully recyclable at the end of its life. The paint has been extensively tested for both adhesion and longevity and MagnX-E and MagnX-DS come with a one year warranty for commercial and contract projects when installed by Gx Glass.

ColourX can be manufactured with cut outs and holes and be CNC or water jet shaped to drawings or rigid templates (subject to manufacturing tolerances).

Gx Glass produces glass to British and European standards strength and flexibility in accordance with BS EN 12150 and safety up to BS EN 12600 Class 1.
