Thermal First to Offer PPG's SunClean Self-Cleaning Glass

Thermal Industries will offer windows containing SunClean self-cleaning glass from PPG beginning next spring-making it the first window and patio enclosure manufacturer to offer the technology for residential windows.

Thermal Industries will offer SunClean self-cleaning glass in its full range of residential window products, including double-hung, casement, sliding, bow and bay windows, and patio doors and enclosure systems. Thermal has traditionally offered a wide variety of windows featuring PPG Low-E and tempered glass products. Thermal will offer SunClean self-cleaning glass in insulating glass units with Solarban 60 solar control Low-E coated glass.

"Window customers demand high performance windows," said David Rascoe, president of Thermal Industries. "We always look to offer our customers the very best in window and glass technology. This latest glass innovation will allow us to meet homeowners' increasing needs for a low-maintenance lifestyle."

"Our research shows that SunClean self-cleaning glass will be in demand by homeowners," said Patrick J. Kenny, director of marketing for PPG's flat glass products. "Our agreement with Thermal Industries will allow us to meet that demand by offering the product through a long-established major window manufacturer with a wide reach."
