Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass), North America’s largest glass producer, is dedicated to glass innovation and fueled by the same people, plants and products that made PPG Glass one of the industry’s most respected and reliable commercial glass manufacturers. According to a recent study conducted by Dodge Data Analytics, Vitro Glass products, such as Solarban® solar control low-e glass and Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass, are the most commonly specified brand of commercial glass in the industry.

Now operating under a global company, architects can expect accelerated research and development efforts in addition to greater capacity in years to come.

At, Vitro Glass offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive portals for glass research, product selection and specification. Visit to search and compare products, configure custom insulating glass units (IGUs), generate three-part specifications while utilizing the full International Glazing Database (IGDB)—all without a login— and more.

Vitro Glass is also committed to environmental sustainability. Throughout its history as PPG Flat Glass, Vitro Glass raised the bar, becoming the first company to achieve Cradle to Cradle® Certification for its entire collection of architectural glasses and the first North American manufacturer to publish third-party verified Environmental Products Declarations (EPDs) for its entire collection of Flat Glass and Processed Glass products. Vitro Glass products also assist architects in achieving LEED certification for their projects in nine credit categories under LEED v4, the most recent version of the rating system.
