Installation of a digitally printed glass wall in Terminal 5 of the Chicago O'Hare International Airport is now complete, according to a Jan. 8 release from Dip-Tech. O’Hare is the most recent of many airports that utilize digital ceramic printed glass in new and renovated terminals. Digitally printed glass offers the ability to control light and to address safety, security and privacy concerns.

The project features a two-story interior curtain wall that blocks entry to private areas and directs foot traffic to the security checkpoint. The color bands and geometric shapes of the designed glass were printed in a gradient to ensure the flow of natural light without diminishing its privacy function, according to the release.
