Utilizing a magnetron sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) coating, Solarban® R77 glass joins Vitro Glass’s family of neutral-reflective low-e glasses to showcase reflectivity that is higher than that of Solarban® 67 glass but lower than that of Solarban® R100 glass.
Thanks to its balanced, reflective visual quality, Solarban® R77 glass is ideal for realizing façade and curtainwall designs intended to capture the visual character of the sky and ambient environment.
On the building exterior, Solarban® R77 glass offers a crisp, silver-blue transmitted color. On the building interior, Solarban® R77 glass provides clear exterior views and soft, natural, neutral daylighting. Its low interior reflectance means Solarban® R77 glass offers crisp, lively views of the outdoors.
Solarban® R77 glass must always be heat-treated, even for laminated applications commonly suited for annealed glass.
Solarvolt™ building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) glass modules allow you to use Vitro Glass products to produce CO2-free power — and even potentially replace conventional building components like wall cladding. To meet design and environmental performance objectives, Solarvolt™ BIPV modules can be used with Solarban® low-e coatings, Starphire Ultra-Clear® glass, Acuity™ low-iron glass, our full range of tinted glasses and virtually any other Vitro Glass product.
Next-generation, energy-efficient design is inevitable when you start with new Solarvolt™ BIPV modules by Vitro Architectural Glass.
Applications include building facades, sunshading, overhead glazing and balustrades.
