From a design standpoint, tritan® crystal glasses are both durable and shatter-resistant. This durability comes from the unique composition of Tritan crystal and is further enhanced by tempering at the rim, where the bowl joins the stem and where the stem joins the foot.  The Tritan protect system is employed; the entire stem is also chemically tempered to double its strength. This general durability, coupled with excellent design, explains why Schott Zwiesel glassware is so popular.
