Solarban® 72 Solar Control Low E Glass

Solarban® 72 Solar Control Low E Glass

Aesthetic Description

Solarban ® 72 Starphire ® glass is a new triple-silver-coated, solar control, low-e glass designed specifically to provide high visible light transmittance, exceptional clarity and superior solar control performance.

Expanding the Range of Performance Options

In a standard one-inch insulating glass unit, Solarban 72 Starphire glass boasts Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) approximating that of Solarban 60 on Starphire glass, yet it offers 25 percent better solar control. Solarban 72 Starphire glass also has solar control characteristics that are similar to those of Solarban 70XL glass, the industry’s first triple-silver-coated, solar control, low-e glass, but it transmits 11 percent more visible light.

The table below shows the VLT and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) for all three products, which highlights the exceptional Light to Solar Gain (LSG) ratio of Solarban 72 Starphire glass:

Engineered for Starphire Glass

To maximize clarity and visible light transmittance, Solarban 72 Starphire glass insulating glass units feature one lite with an advanced triple-silver coating that is engineered for use on a Starphire glass substrate and one lite of uncoated Starphire glass. Thanks to a proprietary low-iron formulation developed by Vitro Glass, Starphire glass has been the most transparent architectural glass in the industry since it was introduced more than 20 years ago.

Sustainable Design and Architectural Glass

Sustainable design, green building, safeguarding the environment and the long-term management of energy costs are vital considerations for contemporary building designers. Like other high-performance architectural glasses from Vitro Glass, Solarban 72 Starphire glass gives architects and building owners a tool to reach their design objectives.

In addition to making products that support sustainable design, Vitro Glass also is a pioneer of developing innovative technologies that reduce energy consumption during the glass-making process. Vitro Glass promotes environmentally responsible manufacturing by recovering and reusing virtually all of its glass manufacturing byproducts and by shipping its materials on reusable steel racks.

Vitro Glass also promotes regional sourcing through its nationwide network of certified glass fabricators and laminators.

Solarban 72 Starphire glass supports sustainable design and can provide LEED credit opportunities according to the following criteria:
