More about this product

Solarban® 70XL solar control low-e glass by Vitro Architectural Glass combines the clear appearance of transparent, color-neutral glass with a combination of solar control and visible light transmittance (VLT). With a triple-silver, magnetic sputter vacuum deposition (MSVD) coating, Solarban® 70XL glass expands the design possibilities for buildings in two important ways:

  1. It enables architects to incorporate vast areas of vision glass into their designs without a corresponding increase in cooling equipment capacity.
  2. Architects can specify a clear aesthetic while achieving solar control performance that was once attainable only through the use of tinted glass and a solar control, low-e coating in an insulating glass unit (IGU).

The center-of-glass insulating performance of Solarban® 70XL glass enables most glazing designs to meet the most stringent regional and local energy standards when used as part of a well designed and constructed glazing system. In addition, Vitro Solarban® 70XL glass can contribute to achieving credit under LEED v4 (and earlier versions) in the categories of Energy and Atmosphere (EA), Materials and Resources (MR), Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and Innovation in Design (IN) as detailed below.

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.
