Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) has launched Vitro InspireScapes, a new blog showcasing extraordinary glass projects, inspired interior and exterior building design expertise, the company’s latest product and technology news, and tips for effective glass specification and product evaluation.
Recent topics covered on Vitro InspireScapes include how to use a new online tool for generating three-part Construction Specifier Institute (CSI) glass specifications; the importance of full-size mock-ups for accurate job-site evaluation of glass samples; and a line of patterned, low-emissivity (low-e) glasses developed jointly by Walker Glass and Vitro Glass to protect birds and the environment.
Robert J. Struble, manager, brand and communications, Vitro Architectural Glass, said Vitro InspireScapes is another valuable tool developed to help architects design and construct more beautiful and sustainable buildings.
“If you want timely updates on new projects, products and tools, Vitro InspireScapes is the place to go,” he explained. “The content is always current; it’s interesting and it’s quickly digestible. Subscribers also have the option to sort content by relevant tags, such as ‘Glass Evaluation,’ ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Design’.”

Visitors also can find information about the Vitro Certified™ network of glass fabricators, a group of elite suppliers specially trained and audited to deliver exclusive access to high-performance Vitro Glass products, accompanied by superior service, from design and specification though final installation of glass on a building.
