Vitro Architectural Glass has added a new option, Solarban® 65 glass, to its family of high-performance, solar control, low-e glasses. 

A modernization of Vitro’s popular Solarban® 60 glass, Solarban® 65 glass blocks 65% of solar heat energy while allowing 70% of the visible light to pass through in a standard one-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), enabling year-round comfort with heating and cooling cost savings, while maintaining a crisp, clear, color-neutral aesthetic. An additional highlight of Solarban® 65 glass is its 0.29 winter nighttime U-value, which demonstrates the superior insulating characteristics of the glass. 

“As the demand for eco-friendly and energy-efficient spaces continues to grow, we’re pleased to offer architects and designers an additional solar control, low-e option to help meet building energy requirements, reduce energy consumption and achieve sustainable design goals,” said Erin Casci, MSVD Coated Products Manager, Vitro Glass.

Solarban® 65 glass delivers a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.35 and visible light transmittance (VLT) of 70%, while maintaining a crisp, clear, color-neutral aesthetic. 


Available now exclusively through the Vitro Certified® Network, Solarban® 65 glass can be coated on clear glass, Acuity® low-iron glass, Starphire Ultra-Clear® low-iron glass and Sungate ThermL glass by Vitro. 

One of Vitro’s newest products, Sungate ThermL glass is a low-e coating engineered for use on the interior surface of a typical one-inch IGU, which reduces heat transfer and dramatically improves U-values when paired with a Solarban® solar control low-e glass by Vitro on the second surface. Pairing Solarban® 65 glass on the second surface with Sungate ThermL glass on the fourth surface enables a U-value of 0.20.
