Glass and Energy Management
Over the past half-century, glass has enhanced its profile and capabilities as a critical asset in the design and
development of green buildings. Beyond its obvious versatility as a building and decorative material, glass offers
architects the environmental advantage of being forged from basic ingredients, such as silica sand, soda-ash and
limestone, that are both plentiful and relatively inexpensive

Yet, the most significant reason for glass’s increased favor with architects is its dual ability to transmit light and mitigate
the effects of solar heat gain. Few building materials balance these competing functions so deftly, and, thanks to
ongoing advances from PPG in glass formulation, engineering and design, there is tangible promise for even more
eco-effective glasses in the future

The energy performance of architectural glass is
measured according to four critical factors:
➤  isible light transmittance (VLT) gauges the amount
of natural light a glass transmits into a building

To compare, the glass with the industry’s highest
VLT, Starphire® ultra-clear glass by PPG, transmits
84 percent of the sun’s available light in a 1-inch
insulating glass unit (IGU). On the other end of the
scale, Graylite® II glass, a dark-tinted gray glass
made by PPG, transmits only 8 percent of the
available sunlight

➤  olar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) quantifies the
amount of solar energy (heat) that passes directly
through or is absorbed into a building through the
INFR glass. Glasses with the lowest SHGCs block the

Conversely, because of its dark gray tint, Graylite II
glass offers an SHGC of 0.21, which means it
deflects 79 percent of the ambient solar radiation

➤ Light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio is derived by dividing
a glass’ solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) into its
visible light transmittance (VLT). This calculation
measures a glass’ ability to transmit light in relation
to its ability to deflect heat energy

Glazings with a light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.25
or greater have been defined as spectrally selective
by the U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy
Management Program (FEMP) guidelines for
commercial glazings

U-values. Glazing Contractor: Ian Ritchie Architects
The primary purpose of solar control low-e glasses, such as the Solarban glasses described on pages 8-13, is to
reduce solar heat gain, which is quantified by SHGC (lower numbers correspond to lower solar heat gain). Passive
low-e glasses, including Sungate 400 glass detailed on page 14, are designed to passively transmit heat into buildings,
generating higher SHGCs

Understanding Glass Performance
Insulating glass units (IGUs) provide four potential coating
surfaces. The first (#1) surface faces outdoors; the fourth 1 2 3 4
(#4) faces directly indoors. The two surfaces inside the
IGU, which face each other and are separated by an Coating
airspace and an insulating spacer, are referred to as the
second (#2) and third (#3) surfaces. 1/4" (6mm) 1/4" (6mm)

As this chart illustrates, when compared to conventional clear glass, Solarban solar control, low-e glasses significantly limit the amount of solar radiation that enters a building
from the infrared (heat energy) portion of the solar spectrum while Sungate passive low-e glasses allow more solar radiation. Light transmittance from the visible portion of the
solar spectrum remains comparatively high. Typically in commercial buildings, it is ideal to maximize visible light transmittance to optimize daylighting while limiting infrared
energy to reduce cooling load
