Solar Control Low-E Glass

Warmer in winter. Cooler in summer. Year-round energy efficiency.

Solarban® 60 Solar Control Low-E Glass

Solarban® 60 glass meets homeowner demands with a proven ability to deliver value and performance by allowing more daylight in, making living spaces more inviting and energy efficient.

The advanced low-e coating of Solarban® 60 glass transmits more than 70% of the sun’s available light into a home while blocking 79% of the sun’s damaging UV energy and other contributors to fading—in all, 24% better than standard clear insulating glass. This helps to protect interior furnishings, fabrics and carpets from fading.

More importantly, Solarban® 60 glass helps homeowners shield their homes—and their utility bills—from summer heat and winter cold. Measured against windows assembled with ordinary clear glass, Solarban® 60 glass lessens solar heat gain by more than half. When the seasons turn cold, the high insulating value of Solarban® 60 helps reduce furnace heat loss through windows by up to 50%.

Those qualities have made Solarban® 60 glass the name to know in the window industry for year-round comfort and energy performance.

Glass Comparison

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
Visible Light
Ultraviolet Energy
Winter Furnace Heat
Standard Insulating Glass Unit Solarban® 60 Insulating Glass Unit Benefits
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient 0.76 0.40 Transmits almost 50% less solar energy to help keep homes cooler in the summer and reduce cooling energy costs
Visible Light Transmittance 81% 72% Allows high level of visible light transmittance and exterior clear glass appearance
U-Value 0.48 0.25 Insulates as much as 50% better than standard clear insulating glass
Ultraviolet Energy 59% 20% Blocks 80% of UV energy, a common contributor to fabrics, carpet and furniture fading
Damage Weighted Transmittance * 0.74 0.55 Minimizes the total potential for fading damage by 26%
*Damage Weighted Transmittance is calculated according to a function called Tdw-ISO, developed by the International Standards Organization (ISO) and published by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE), the world’s leading technical organization on lighting and illumination. The Tdw-ISO calculation measures fading risk from solar radiation across the entire solar light spectrum, from UV light (280-380 nanometers) through visible light (390-780 nanometers). According to the CIE standard, which is considered more comprehensive than UV rating alone, Solarban® 60 glass can minimize fading damage across the entire solar spectrum more effectively than glass designed primarily to block UV light.
