1-888-PPG-IDEA (1-888-774-4332) www.ppgideascapes.com 3 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 V of natural light a glass transmits into a building
To compare, the glass with the industry’s highest VISI VLT, Starphire® ultra-clear glass by PPG, transmits BLE 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 S 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 theCaesars Palace ARELocation: Las Vegas, Nevada D highest percentage of solar heat.

This calculation INFR A VISI RED measures a glass’ ability to transmit light in relation BLE 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

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

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
