The Ultimate Blank Slate

ADVERTISEMENT Acid-etch it. Backpaint it. Digitally print on it. Frit it. The interior design options are endless when you start with Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass by Vitro Architectural Glass.  

For virtually any design requirement, Starphire® glass creates brilliant interior elements from doors and partitions to shower enclosures and more. Starphire® glass contains 87% less green than “clear” glass, expressing colors and patterns in their purest forms. Whether you need vibrant color or no color at all, Starphire® glass delivers pure clarity in thicknesses up to 19mm. Even in heavy thicknesses, Starphire® glass transmits 90% of available visible light and maintains its signature azure blue edge.

Starphire® glass is about more than just good looks. It’s easy to clean with anti-bacterial solutions, and available heat-treated and laminated for extra strength and heat resistance.

Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass is the world's purest glass — and the ultimate canvas for brilliant interiors. Accept no substitutes.

Solar control glass

Vitro Architectural Glass launched Solarban R77 solar control, low-emissivity glass. The building-code-friendly glass features a magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition coating, and delivers a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.25 in a clear 1-inch insulating glass unit. It also offers visible light transmittance of 47 percent in the same configuration, providing clear exterior views and illuminating interiors with soft, natural, neutral daylighting. Exterior reflectance is 25 percent.

Glass kit

Vitro Architectural Glass introduced a new tinted glass kit featuring a range of uncoated blue, green, gray and bronze glasses. The package contains 4-by-6-inch uncoated samples of Solexia, Atlantica, Azuria, Solarblue, Pacifica, Optigray, Solargray, Graylite II and Solarbronze glasses. The samples are packaged in a compact box that is easier to ship, story and carry, and more environmentally friendly than previous Vitro glass sample boxes, say officials.
