BEMA Design Awards winners to be announced in Atlanta, Sept. 12-14PITTSBURGH, Aug. 29, 2011 – PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG), the manufacturer of CLARVISTA(TM) shower glass, announced that it will sponsor the Bath Enclosure Manufacturers Association’s (BEMA’s) 14th Annual Design Awards Competition.

The yearly contest, which began in 1996, showcases innovation and excellence in the fast-growing field of glass enclosure design. Winners will be announced at The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Atlanta, Sept.12-14.

Clarvista glass is an innovative shower glass developed by PPG that, with regular maintenance, looks newer for a longer time than do other shower glass products. Designed for bath and shower enclosures in upscale homes and commercial spas and resorts, it features a proprietary coating that seals the glass surface, making it more resistant to corrosion caused by heat, humidity, soap and chemicals in household cleaning products. When used with STARPHIRE(R) glass by PPG, Clarvista glass offers superior clarity.

Starphire glass was featured in one of last year’s BEMA award-winning designs.
