Vitro Solutions

Vitro Glass offers products, documents and online tools that enable architects and specifiers to model glass-related variables such as visible light transmittance (VLT), solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), insulation values (U-Value), window-to-wall ratios, glazing characteristics, shading and window operability. Printed and online performance are available as input for energy modeling programs and software to help buildings achieve LEED certification.
 
Products: Use Vitro Glass products such as Solarban® solar control low-e and Sungate® passive low-e glasses in combination with clear, ultra-clear and performance-tinted glass to achieve the optimal balance of aesthetics, solar control (SHGC), insulating value (U-Value) and visible light transmittance (VLT).
