Low-E Coatings


Annissa

Annissa Flickinger, Global Architectural Manager Vitro Architectural Glass. The curving, high performance glass façade for The Jewel Changi Singapore Airport is just one of the impressive projects that Flickinger has helped define. A double-skinned Cleveland Clinic in Abu Dhabi to large, bent glass windows at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills, Flickinger has worked with the world’s top designers to select glazing, improve energy efficiency, and ultimately achieve the visual goals of the façade. Since glass is a key component of any building’s envelope, Flickinger’s 15-years of experience and the advanced Solarban® low-e glass options from Vitro Architectural Glass make the perfect formula for today’s demanding facades.

 

Vitro Architectural Glass 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.
