Vitro Architectural Glass

Unmatched Brightness & Visual Excitement

The unique Starphire® glass edge brings more light into interior spaces while offering unmatched levels of brightness, color fidelity, clarity and visual excitement.

Interior Glass Applications

Starphire® glass provides the ultimate color fidelity for interior and entrance applications, while remaining crystal clear as thickness increases, bringing more light into interior spaces without compromising clarity . When used for interior entrances, shelves, shower enclosures, showcases, tabletops, backsplashes, doors, side lites, decorative panels, clerestories and partitions, Starphire® glass evokes a sense of luxury and sophistication with its unique blue edge that conventional clear glass cannot match.

Safety & Security Glazings

Starphire® glass brings a new level of visual quality to safety and security glazing applications. From zoo enclosures to jewelry storefronts and marine aquariums to museum cases, Starphire® glass delivers unparalleled color transmission so that objects are seen in their true colors, rather than being distorted by a green appearance that is often present in multi-layer laminates of ordinary clear glass.

Heavy Glass

Starphire® glass offers higher visible light transmittance (VLT) than ordinary clear glass in thicknesses of up to 3/4-inch or 19 mm. Architects are able to specify Starphire® extra-heavy glass for heavy interior glass applications, including security glazing.

Decorative Glass

Whether you’re designing digitally printed glass, acid-etched glass or any other decorative interior application, Starphire® glass allows true colors and distinctive patterns to shine through.

Kitchen & Bath

Starphire® glass allows decorative furnishings and accents to shine through with true color fidelity, making it the perfect choice for kitchen countertops and backsplashes as well as shower and bathtub enclosures. In bathrooms, specify Starphire® glass with the Clarvista® glass coating to protect bath enclosures against dullness caused over time by the corrosive effects of heat and humidity.

Fabrication and Availability

Starphire® glass is available in thicknesses from 3.2 mm to 19 mm and is stocked regionally to assure consistent supply reliability. Starphire® glass can be cut, edge polished, drilled, heat treated, laminated, fritted, magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) coated and insulated to suit a wide variety of applications.
