Vitro Architectural Glass

A Harmonizing Bronze Hue

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 one-inch insulating glass unit (IGU), Solarbronze® glass provides excellent visual light transmittance (VLT). For even better performance, combine Solarbronze® glass with Sungate® 400 glass in a one-inch IGU to improve solar control 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.
