One World Trade Center tower will feature 2,000 pieces of ultra-clear glass

January 10, 2011 |

The podium wall system on Tower One of the One World Trade Center in New York City will feature more than 2,000 pieces of Starphire ultra-clear glass. Chosen for its high clarity levels up to one inch thick, the glass uses a low-iron formulation that makes it as transparent as possible. PPG Industries will supply glass in 10-mm, 12-mm and 25-mm thicknesses for the 185-foot-tall podium base wall.
