Vitro Architectural Glass Earns Top 25 Product Recognition from retrofit
PITTSBURGH, November 24, 2021 – Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) announced that Titan glass, a new oversized glass product for large-scale exterior insulating glass units (IGUs), will be included in retrofit’s Top 25 Products special.
The ninth-annual Top 25 Products, which will appear in retrofit’s January-February 2022 issue, celebrates the products that received the most reader clicks from September-October 2020 through September-October 2021. During that time, retrofit staff posted approximately 700 products to the magazine’s website, so the Top 25 are standouts.
“We consider retrofit a source for our readers to find innovative solutions and products for their own retrofit projects,” says publisher John Riester. “The Top 25 Products special in our January-February issue is a great resource showcasing the products readers thought were most interesting within the pages of retrofit and on our website.”
Titan glass was introduced by Vitro Glass to meet the demand for even larger spans of oversized exterior IGUs than were previously available, offering architects and designers the opportunity to realize their most dramatic and ambitious visions. Titan glass products are 130-by-240 inches, an increase from the maximum size of 130-by-204 inches previously available. Available initially in heavy thicknesses of 8 and 10 millimeters, Titan glass can be manufactured with Solarban® 60, 70, 72, 90 or R100 glass coatings for added solar control and clear, Acuity™ or Starphire® glass substrates.
“Titan glass has pushed past the boundaries of what was previously thought possible when fabricating large-scale spans of glass,” said Emily Losego, manager, MSVD coated products, Vitro Architectural Glass. “Now, architects can achieve even more dramatic and visually impressive facades with a smaller number of IGUs.”
