Highlights include new SOLARBAN 90 glass, photography, performance data

PPG has published a new architectural glass catalog that features vibrant photography of award-winning buildings, detailed product descriptions and comprehensive performance data for PPG’s entire line of glass products.

Products include low-iron, performance-tinted, and passive and solar control low-emissivity (low-e) glasses, such as SOLARBAN® 90 glass that debuted late last year.

Miner, PPG director of construction, flat glass, said the glass catalog remains a tangible resource for architects, specifiers and building professionals seeking to balance sustainability and aesthetics. “PPG is continually adding to and enhancing the quality of its online offerings, but there always is considerable demand for the glass catalog because of its convenience and the extraordinary project photography it highlights.”


The PPG glass catalog contains an educational section about glass and energy management that explains how coated low-e glasses such as Solarban and SUNGATE® 400 glasses diminish energy use in commercial buildings by reducing heating and cooling loads and transmitting high levels of natural light. Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, along with artificial lighting, consume nearly 60 percent of the energy used in U.S. commercial buildings.

The brochure also uses graphics to illustrate terms such as solar-heat-gain coefficient (SHGC), visible light transmittance (VLT), light-to-solar-gain (LSG) ratio and U-value. This helps readers better understand the performance data that is presented throughout the catalog in comparative graphs and tables.

There also is a section about the PPG CERTIFIED FABRICATOR NETWORK™ group, a collection of elite PPG-trained and -audited suppliers that provide exclusive access to proprietary high-performance PPG glass products, and then back them with world-class customer service before, during and after installation.
