Solarbronze® Glass

A proven high-performance bronze glass

Solarbronze® glass has been a staple in architectural glass offerings since the 1960s because it creates a bold visual statement while maintaining energy efficiency and occupant comfort. A popular choice for commercial structures, Solarbronze® glass has a warm bronze tint that adds subtle richness to the exterior and a warm glow to interior décor. The bronze color especially complements brick and stone facades.

In a 1-inch IGU, Solarbronze® glass provides a visual light transmittance (VLT) of 47 percent. For even better performance, combine Solarbronze® glass with Sungate® 400 glass in a 1-inch IGU to improve solar heat gain performance and lower U-values. To achieve spectrally selective glass, as recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy, team Solarbronze® glass with Solarban® 60 solar control low-e glass to earn a light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 1.25 or better.
