Compact, environmentally friendly design showcases multiple products, substrates

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) has introduced a new Solarban® solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glass kit featuring a more compact and environmentally friendly design.

The streamlined, foam-free package contains 4-by-6-inch samples of Solarban® 60, Solarban® 70, Solarban® 90, Solarban® 67 and Solarban® R100 glasses on clear and Acuity™ low-iron glass substrates. Solarban® 60 glass also is shown on tinted Optiblue® and Optigray® substrates and Solarban® 72 glass is coated on Starphire Ultra-Clear® and Acuity low-iron glasses.

Nathan McKenna, marketing manager, Vitro Architectural Glass, said that despite featuring a greater selection of products, the new kit is smaller and easier to handle than previous sample boxes.

“This kit is an important tool for architect libraries because it enables designers and specifiers to see the genuine difference in clarity and color fidelity between conventional clear and low-iron glasses when specified with low-e coatings,” he explained. “We also downsized the packaging and eliminated the use of foam, which makes it easier to ship, store and carry, and less impactful on the environment.”
