Triple-silver-coated, low-emissivity glass can save a building twice as much in annual energy savings than its double-silver-coated equivalent, according to research by manufacturer PPG Industries.

Speaking at a conference at the University of Southern California, Chuck McMullen, national architectural manager for PPG Industries used the example of a prototype window-walled, eight-story office building in Los Angeles to show that its building owners could achieve energy savings of more than $37,000 per year when using double-silver-coated, low-e glass instead of spectrally selective tinted glass. When triple-silver-coated, low-e glass was substituted for spectrally selective tinted glass, the annual energy savings for the same building more than doubled to $75,728, McMullen said.
