More about this product

Developed with the input of architects and in the tradition of the Solarban® family of low-e glasses by Vitro Architectural Glass, Solarban® 90 glass combines solar control performance with the neutral aesthetic appeal of clear glass -in both color and reflectance- whether viewed from the interior or exterior of a building. The advanced solar control low-e coating manages the light spectrum to balance visible light transmittance and help manage glare.

Solarban® 90 glass also facilitates the use of smaller HVAC systems to reduce cooling costs, while minimizing artificial lighting requirements and the need for external shading devices.As with other Solarban® low-e coated glasses, Solarban® 90 glass has the versatility to be paired with an array of performance-tinted glasses to provide a broad range of aesthetic and performance options.

Sustainability

Architects commonly specify Vitro Architectural Glass products to meet LEED® and other green building criteria. Solarban® and other Vitro glasses have been installed on hundreds of LEED-certified buildings, including The Tower at PNC Plaza, the world’s greenest office tower and three of the world’s 11 certified net-zero-energy, “living” buildings.

Vitro Glass has also been a pioneer in oxygen-fueled glass furnace technology, which cuts natural gas consumption by 15 percent compared to conventional air-fired glass furnaces, while reducing carbon emissions by 10 percent and nitrogen oxide emissions by more than 50 percent, operating one-third of the world’s oxygen-fueled glass furnaces.

The company promotes sustainability through post-consumer recycling of its products, by meeting global regulatory statutes and by developing wildlife-friendly products such as the industry’s first “bird-safe” low-emissivity (low-e) glass, and “turtle glass,” which helps turtle hatchlings survive in commercially developed coastal areas.
