    Vitro Architectural Glass: Solarban® 67 Solexia® maximizes daylight

    Post Time:May 23,2022Classify:Company NewsView:1000

    Striking the ideal balance between maximized daylighting and controlled heat gain, Mithun architects selected Solarban® 67 Solexia® glass by Vitro Architectural Glass for the LEED® Platinum-certified Middle Earth Expansion for the University of California, Irvine’s (UCI) living-learning community.

    The new 6-story, 215,000 square foot mixed-use facility promotes a “see and be seen” vibe with 30 percent of its façade clad with glass. Enhancing the transparency, operable windows deliver natural ventilation to 80 percent of the spaces in the building.

    “We worked with our mechanical engineer to find the right product that allowed a balance of light transmittance with the appropriate solar heat gain coefficient,” said Bill LaPatra, AIA, LEED AP, Partner, Mithun, Seattle, USA.

    Solarban® 67 Solexia® glass emerged as the best option. Engineered with a proprietary double-silver, magnetron-sputtered vacuum deposition (MSVD) coating, Solarban® 67 glass accurately transmits and reflects the tone and brightness of ambient light and colour while delivering excellent solar control. Combined in a one-inch insulating glass unit with Solexia® glass, it provides a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.25 and a visible light transmittance of 47 percent.
