Solor-controlled low-E coatings can be applied to STARPHIRE® Ultra Clear Glass safely and easily without distracting or lessening the quality of the overall glass clarity. When used in a shower enclosure, STARPHIRE® Ultra Clear Glass allows you to focus instead on the natural colors and design of your titles and instead of the deep-green tint of traditional clear glass.

When used in windows and doors, STARPHIRE® Ultra Clear Glass provides an amazing view completed undistorted and with unparalleled brilliance. Although normal clear glass may be acceptable for your average, run of the mill glass projects, STARPHIRE® Ultra Clear Glass is exactly what you need to make your glass project shine with a clarity that is incomparable to that of ordinary glass. STARPHIRE® Ultra Clear Glass has been used in thousands of projects and free conslutations are available.

Beveled edges can also be applied to any of these edge finishes.
