ACUITY glass samples with SOLARBAN coatings now available

Posted: January 3, 2019 | Tradewinds

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 3, 2018 – Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) announced Acuity™ low-iron glass samples can be ordered with Solarban® solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) coatings at samples.vitroglazings.com. Available samples sizes are 4-by-6 inches and 12-by-12 inches.

Introduced earlier this year as an affordable upgrade to conventional clear glass, Acuity low-iron glass enables architects to achieve clearer, more transparent vision glass and truer spandrel colors by eliminating the green cast inherent to regular clear glass.

Acuity glass also is formulated to enhance the energy performance of commercial buildings. When paired in a standard 1-inch insulating glass unit with Solarban 60, Solarban 67, Solarban 72, Solarban 90 or Solarban R100 glasses, Acuity glass can achieve visible light transmittance (VLT) of up to 73 percent and solar heat gain coefficients (SHGCs) ranging from 0.23 to 0.41.

Acuity glass with Solarban glass can be ordered through members of the Vitro Certified™ Network in standard production sizes of 96-by-130, 100-by-144 and 130-by-204 inches.

Architects and specifiers also can order an Acuity glass sample kit. The kit highlights the clarity of Acuity glass by showing it next to a clear glass in an IGU with Solarban 60 glass. A brochure with performance data and other information is included in the sample kit, which can be ordered at www.vitroglazings.com/acuity.
