Two Oklahoma City landmarks highlight advancements in energy-efficient SOLARBAN glass

Sophisticated low-e glasses block heat, transmit daylight to help buildings save energy - Two prominent Oklahoma City landmarks, constructed more than 20 years apart and both featuring SOLARBAN® glass by PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG), are part of a company retrospective highlighting nearly a half-century of development in energy-efficient glass.    Leadership Square (1984)Completed in 1984 and featuring classic Modernist glass-and-steel design, Leadership Square features two 16-story towers constructed with Solarban 560-8 TWINDOW® glass by PPG.

As a cutting-edge product of the era – developed partially in response to the oil crises of the 1970s – reflective Solarban Twindow glass helped large commercial buildings such as those in Leadership Square reduce air-conditioning use by blocking the sun’s heat energy while sacrificing its ability to light interior spaces.

Will Rogers World Airport (2005)

Conversely, the new terminal at Will Rogers World Airport, which opened 21 years later, features Solarban 60 glass. Introduced in the early 2000s, this advanced product combines the neutral, non-reflective appearance of clear glass with the ability to block more than 60 percent of the sun’s heat energy. Consequently, it enables buildings such as Will Rogers World Airport to cut energy use by daylighting interior spaces and reducing air-conditioning demand.

PPG is currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of Solarban glass. Since the brand name was launched in 1964, it has come to signify industry leadership in environmentally advanced architectural glass. Today, the Solarban brand encompasses a broad range of high-performance solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glasses – including many formulated with PPG’s proprietary triple-silver coating technology – that help architects design and construct more sustainable buildings.
