Solarban ® 70XL Glass

Daylighting and energy savings for homes and buildings

By transmitting more than 60% of sun’s natural light and blocking more than 70% of its solar energy, Solarban 70XL Low-E glass can dramatically reduce energy consumption and cut utility costs for homeowners and commercial building owners. In commercial office buildings, studies demonstrate that Solarban 70XL glass can reduce initial HVAC equipment costs by $100,000 or more while reducing annual energy costs by $40,000 or more in comparison with the most widely accepted high performance glasses.
