Kits contain 10 samples each of transparent and tinted-performance glasses with low-e coatings
PITTSBURGH, April 4, 2019 – Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) announced that two new glass sample kits, featuring 10 samples each of transparent and tinted low-emissivity (low-e) glass, can now be ordered through its online literature and fulfillment center.
The transparent low-e glass kit contains insulating glass units (IGUs) with Solarban® 60, Solarban 70XL, Solarban 67, Solarban R100 and Solarban 90 coatings on clear, Acuity™ low-iron and Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass substrates.
The tinted low-e kit holds IGUs with multiple Vitro Glass performance tinted-substrates finished with various Solarban solar control low-e coatings. They include Atlantica®, Azuria®, Optiblue®, Optigray®, Pacifica®, Solarblue®, Solarbronze® and Solargray® glasses. Each glass sample is labeled with comprehensive performance data, including visible light transmittance (VLT), solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), U-value, interior and exterior reflectance, and more.
Robert J. Struble, manager, brand and communications, Vitro Architectural Glass, said that when Solarban glasses are united with clear, low-iron and tinted glasses by Vitro Glass, they offer architects the industry’s most expansive collection of aesthetic and performance options. “These kits highlight only a fraction of the possible substrate-and-coating options available from Vitro Glass, but they are ‘must-haves’ for architect libraries that thrive on having the latest design and specification materials,” he explained.
In addition to the two new glass sample kits, Vitro Architectural Glass has debuted a new design for its Tinted Glass Design Kit. Included in this sample kit are 4″ x 6″ monolithic lites of popular tinted glasses by Vitro Glass. All sample kits can now be ordered through the Vitro Glass Literature and Fulfillment Center.
The Vitro Glass Literature and Fulfillment Center enables architects to order a variety of individual glass samples and sample glass kits, as well as the latest Vitro glass catalogs, brochures and educational materials, at their convenience.
