Vitro Glass Donates Starphire Low-Iron Glass to Fallingwater Window Restoration Project

Vitro Architectural Glass donated Starphire Ultra-Clear glass to replace multiple windows at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. As part of an on-going restoration effort, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy—owners and caretakers of Fallingwater—recently replaced the glass in 16 of its windows with Starphire glass as part of a larger conservation project addressing corrosion of steel door and window frames. The Conservancy is scheduled to restore more windows using Starphire glass as part of its proposed preservation efforts in the coming years.
