PPG Solarban 60 off-line low-e glass

Solarban 60 glass meets homeowner demands with a proven ability to deliver value and performance by allowing more daylight in, making living spaces more inviting and energy efficient.

The advanced low-e coating of Solarban 60 glass transmits more than 70% of the sun’s available light into a home while blocking 79% of the sun’s damaging UV energy and other contributors to fading—in all, 24% better than standard clear insulating glass. This helps to protect interior furnishings, fabrics and carpets from fading.

More importantly,Solarban 60 glass helps homeowners shield their homes—and their utility bills—from summer heat and winter cold. Measured against windows assembled with ordinary clear glass,Solarban 60 glass lessens solar heat gain by more than half. When the seasons turn cold, the high insulating value of Solarban 60 helps reduce furnace heat loss through windows by up to 50%.

Those qualities have made Solarban 60 glass the name to know in the window industry for year-round comfort and energy performance.

Damage Weighted Transmittance *0.740.55Minimizes the total potential for fading damage by 26%

*Damage Weighted Transmittance is calculated according to a function called Tdw-ISO, developed by the International Standards Organization (ISO) and published by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE), the world’s leading technical organization on lighting and illumination. The Tdw-ISO calculation measures fading risk from solar radiation across the entire solar light spectrum, from UV light (280-380 nanometers) through visible light (390-780 nanometers). According to the CIE standard, which is considered more comprehensive than UV rating alone, Solarban® 60 glass can minimize fading damage across the entire solar spectrum more effectively than glass designed primarily to block UV light.
