Starphire® Ultra Clear Low-Iron Glass - Heavy Glass

The clearest heavy glass on the market for entrances and storefronts, as well as safety and security glass applications.

Sparkling Clarity & Color Fidelity

Starphire Ultra‑Clear® Glass can transform your heavy glass applications from attractive to sensational by adding sparkling clarity and unsurpassed color fidelity compared to standard clear glass.

Heavy Glass Applications

Vitro makes Starphire® glass in a variety of thicknesses, from ¼-inch (6 mm) up to ¾-inch (19 mm). With its signature blue edge, Starphire® glass is the ideal choice for a wide range of extra-heavy glass applications.

Entrances and Storefronts

Starphire® glass provides an entrance glazing option that redefines elegance brilliantly. It is the ideal solution to make your entrance or storefront sparkle, and let the true colors of products, displays and logos shine through. Lobbies and reception areas become breathtaking with the uncommon brightness of Starphire® glass. And Starphire® glass doors set a new standard thanks to their jewel-like clarity and sparkling blue edges.

Starphire® glass provides maximum brightness for entryways with 7 percent higher visible light transmittance (VLT) than ordinary clear glass (in ½-inch glass thickness). Its amazing 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® glass can be laminated in multiple layers and thicknesses to provide strength and protection for applications such as jewelry storefronts.

Safety & Security Glass

Heavy Starphire® glass provides a new 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.

Starphire® glass safety and security glass provides 16 percent higher VLT than ordinary clear glass in a 1 3/8-inch laminated glass construction, so you get superior clarity that also conceals the actual thickness of the glass. And it can be fabricated easily to your exact specifications. Let Starphire® glass bring unparalleled color transmission, clarity and security to your next project.
