The new landing page details how electrochromic glass from SageGlass and tinted and low-emissivity (low-e) glasses by PPG can be used on adjacent elements of a building envelope to create an advanced solar-management system for the façade of a building.
SageGlass tints on demand to enhance occupant comfort and enables views and connection to the outdoors. SageGlass nanotechnology incorporates micro-thin layers of coating applied to the glass and is available in a standard insulating glass unit.
When activated by a low-voltage electrical current, the coating darkens, absorbing a portion of the sun’s heat and light, and enabling the glass to tint on demand. SageGlass controls solar glare, minimizes solar heat gain, and enhances the thermal comfort of building occupants.
SOLARBAN and SUNGATE low-emissivity (low-e) glasses by PPG can be specified to provide many of the same benefits on sections of the building envelope that do not require the dynamic switching capabilities of electrochromic glass. The landing page also highlights the SageGlass color palette, which includes clear, gray, bronze, green and blue tints that can complement PPG’s performance-tinted glass to provide attractive and highly functional exterior glass building envelopes.
Visitors to the SageGlass product landing page on ppgideascapes.com will find photos and videos that demonstrate how electrochromic glass works, along with links to product guides, performance data and glass expert directories for each company.
