PPG Architectural Glass Tools
The following are innovative tools that can help you assess and compare the architectural glass and glazings products that you may be considering for your next commercial construction project:
PPG Glass eVIEW
PPG Glass eVIEW is a comprehensive set of tools designed to help architects, specifiers, fabricators and glaziers identify the PPG glass products that best meet their projects' aesthetic and performance goals.
Search through PPG Glass' extensive selection of products and compare the features and benefits of each. Construct a custom IGU from the virtually unlimited number of glazing configurations. View the glass you've selected or configured to see the impact it will have on visible light.
After you've identified the product you need, browse our Project Gallery to view completed projects that have used it and order a sample to see the amazing aesthetics for yourself.
PPG Glass Performance Calculator
The PPG Glass Performance Calculator
has been updated and is now included in the PPG Glass e
VIEW as the CONSTRUCT IGU function. The data used in the existing PPG Glass Performance Calculator is no longer current, and the tool will be discontinued as of May 31, 2013. To create a custom insulated glass unit using architectural glass products by PPG, please see CONSTRUCT IGU above or Get Started Now
PPG Energy Modeling of Architectural Glazings
will help you compare the real energy costs associated with specific architectural glazings according to the U.S. Department of Energy's energy modeling software.
PPG Thermal Stress Analysis Tool
PPG's Thermal Stress Analysis for Insulated Glass Units
provides glass recommendations based on the design input of your project.
