Solarban® z75 Solar Control, Low-E Glass by PPG

Designed with a cool, neutral aesthetic, Solarban z75 and Solarban z50 glasses excel at controlling glare while offering superior daylighting and solar control properties to support sustainable design. The result is a pair of products with visible light transmittance (VLT) and solar heat gain coefficients (SHGC) that meet or exceed competing architectural glasses with a similar aesthetic.

Solarban z75 solar control, low-e glass provides a steel-blue/gray appearance with an exceptional solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.24. Similar in appearance to popular Solarban z50 glass, the coating on Solarban z75 glass is designed to provide a different level of solar control performance, giving architects two options for a neutral cool-gray glass that is optimized to their local climate and building code demands.

Versatile Aesthetics, Exceptional Performance

Solarban z75 glass excels at controlling glare while offering superior daylighting and solar control properties to support sustainable design. It complements a wide range of design scenarios with visible light transmittance (VLT) and a SHGC that is as good as or better than competing architectural glasses with the same aesthetic.

With interior reflectance levels below 10 percent, Solarban z75 glass also delivers clear, natural outdoor views and harmonizes well with other clear and color-neutral solar control, low-e glasses such as Solarban 67 and Solarban R100 glasses.

LEED and Sustainable Building
The center-of-glass insulating performance of Solarban z75 glass enables most glazing designs to meet 2014 California Title 24 energy standards when used as part of a well-designed and constructed glazing system. In addition, Solarban z75 glass can contribute to achieving credit under LEED v4 (and earlier versions) in the categories of Energy and Atmosphere (EA), Materials and Resources (MR), Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and Innovation in Design (IN).
