More about this product

Solarban® 60 solar control glass by Vitro Architectural Glass was engineered to control solar heat gain, which is essential to minimizing cooling costs. In a standard one-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), Solarban® 60 glass offers an exterior appearance similar to clear, uncoated glass. In addition, it can also be combined with an outboard lite of tinted or reflective-tinted glass to increase 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.
