More about this product

Vitro's Starphire® Extra Heavy Glass is a transparent and thick glass, with greater clarity, luminosity and fidelity of color than the standard transparent glasses. With its distinctive blue border, the ultra-clear Starphire® glass is the ideal choice for a wide range of extra heavy glass applications, including:

Entrances and Storefronts

Starphire® ultra-clear glass provides maximum brightness for entryways with 7 percent higher visible light transmittance (VLT) than ordinary clear glass (in ½-inch glass thickness). Its high clarity and color fidelity show products as they really are without the greening and distortion of conventional clear glass, particularly as thickness increases. And because of its absence of color, Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass can be laminated in multiple layers and thicknesses to provide strength and protection for applications such as jewelry storefronts.

Safety and Security Glass

Heavy Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass provides a high level of visual quality to safety and security glazing applications. Special building projects, such as zoo enclosures, fish tanks, jewelry display cases, protective windows and museum cases, present design challenges that are typically solved by using multi-layer laminates. That solution, however, prevents objects from being seen in their true colors, as they are distorted by the “greening” that occurs with increased thicknesses of conventional clear glass.

Vitro's safety and security glass provides 16 percent higher visible light transmittance (VLT) than ordinary clear glass in a 13/8-inch laminated glass construction, so you get superior clarity that also conceals the actual thickness of the glass.
