With SolarBan 70XL Glass, the best choice for energy-efficient glass is clear.

 

With an unparalleled combination of visible light transmittance, energy-saving solar control and a clear glass appearance, Solarban 70XL Solar Control Low-E Glass by PPG represents the most dramatic advance in window glass in more than a decade.

 

In a standard insulating glass unit, the clear appearance of Solarban 70XL glass permits 64 percent of the sun’s natural light toenter your home while blocking 73 percent of its heat energy. That means you can get the clear glass appearance most homeowners favor – together with summer cooling cost savings of up to 25 percent – in one brilliant package.

 

When you buy windows made with Solarban 70XL glass, here's what you get:

 

Cooler in the Summer
Thanks to its special low-emissivity (low-e) coating, a window made with Solarban 70XL glass allows 65 percent less heat from the sun to enter your home than a window with ordinary glass. That can reduce summer cooling costs by up to 25 percent. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) is a measure of how much solar heat is transmitted through the glass. A lower SHGC means less summer heat.

Comfortable, Abundant Light
Solarban 70XL glass has a proprietary solar control low-e coating that blocks almost 3⁄4 of the sun’s heat energy while
transmitting abundant natural light.

Fade Protection
The solar control, low-e coating of Solarban 70XL glass blocks ultraviolet (UV) energy, which is traditionally associated with fading, 90% more effectively than ordinary glass. However, a more complete measure of fading resistance called “damageweighted transmittance,” shows that Solarban 70XL glass also protects your fabrics, furniture and carpets from fading caused by visible light.

Warmer in the Winter
Furnace heat lost through your windows is at its peak on winter nights. When your windows are made with Solarban 70XL glass instead of ordinary glass, this heat loss is cut nearly half, meaning lower heating bills.

Be Comfortable With Your Energy Bill

PPG Solarban 70XL Solar Control Low-E Glass helps your home be more energy-efficient all year round. The microscopically thin low-e coating blocks solar energy in the summer and reduces the escape of heat in the winter without altering the appearance of your window inside or out.

 

 

As this chart demonstrates, compared to clear glass and another leading solar control low-e glass, Solarban 70XL glass dramatically reduces the amount of infrared energy (heat) that enters your home while still providing high levels of visible light transmittance (sunlight). And make no mistake, the savings are real. In fact, Solarban 70XL glass is already revolutionizing the commercial glass market, saving owners and operators of large commercial buildings millions of dollars in cooling costs and equipment. Now the same technology they've come to know and trust is available for your home.
