Into the VitroSphere

Vitro Architectural Glass has launched VitroSphere™ Digital Glass Simulator, a new virtual tool for visualizing architectural glass. Developed for architects, the tool is designed to allow users to explore, visualize and compare the company’s Solarban® solar control low-E glass products across a range of building types.

The company says the simulator enables customers to accurately visualize Solarban glass products’ color, transparency and reflectance on different types of buildings at various times of day and from both the interior and exterior of the building. The tool presents renderings of five building facades, from convention centers to offices, hospitals and universities, allowing users to explore what a specific façade selection might look like with both sunny and overcast weather conditions.

VitroSphere also connects users to relevant product data, literature and other Vitro glass design tools on its website.
