0 comment 2 minutes read

Vitro’s Solarban® 70 Glass Continues to Lead the Way as the Pinnacle of Low-E Coatings in the Architectural Glass Industry Since 2006.

Vitro Architectural Glass proudly asserts the ongoing dominance of Solarban® 70 Glass, maintaining its status as the industry’s most proven low-emissivity (low-e) coating since its groundbreaking introduction in 2006. This solar control low-e glass has not only reshaped sustainable construction practices but has also provided architects and designers with unparalleled flexibility in meeting stringent energy codes without compromising on daylighting or the seamless connection to the outdoors.

The revolutionary Solarban® 70 glass marked a pivotal moment in architectural glass history by integrating a third layer of silver into the coating, elevating glass performance to unprecedented levels. Today, it stands as the most proven and widely specified triple-silver-coated low-e glass, with over 700 million square feet shipped, equivalent to the area of Cleveland, Ohio.

Fernando Diez, Vice President of Marketing at Vitro Architectural Glass, notes, “For nearly two decades, Solarban® 70 glass has stretched the limits of solar control and transparency, allowing architects to incorporate expansive sections of transparent glass in their designs. Its optimal clarity, energy performance, and efficiency make it an ideal choice for sustainable design.”

Solarban® 70 glass offers excellent energy efficiency without sacrificing visible light transmittance (VLT) or darkening the glass excessively. With a VLT of 64% and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.27 in a one-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), it strikes the perfect balance between clarity, consistency, and solar control performance.

Vitro continues to advance its triple-silver coating technology, evident in products like Solarban® 72 glass and Solarban® 70 Optiblue® glass. Solarban® 72 is tailored for Vitro low-iron glass substrates, Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass, and Acuity® low-iron glass. Solarban® 70 Optiblue® glass not only controls glare with its steel blue-gray appearance but also offers superior solar control properties supporting sustainable design.

Architects can unleash their creativity by combining Solarban® 70 glass with a diverse range of performance-tinted glasses from Vitro, providing an extensive palette of color and performance options.
