Online Galss Specification Tools Help Achitects

PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) added three new architect specification tools to its PPG IdeaScapes Web site. They are:

  • PPG Glass Configurator - This comparison tool enables architects to view more than 120 PPG architectural glass and coating combinations by aesthetic and performance criteria. Clicking any tint reveals a full product description, project gallery and complete performance data, including winter U-value, outdoor visible light reflectance, solar heat gain coefficient, visible light transmittance, light-to-solar gain ratio and more. Architects also can search by product name, color, solar heat range and light transmittance.
  • ASTM E 2129-05 Completed Questionnaire - This downloadable white paper documents PPG glass data as they apply to the ASTM E 2129-05 Standard Practice for Data Collection for Sustainability Assessment of Building Products. The completed questionnaire often is required by architects to quantify the sustainability of building products they specify or purchase.
  • Photo Gallery - An expanded and updated photo gallery features dozens of new projects as well as hundreds of older buildings from the PPG project database. The gallery is searchable by project name, type or location, or by product name or type (glass, coatings or paint).

To learn about PPG's entire collection of architectural glasses, coatings and paint, visit or call 1-888-PPG-IDEA (774-4332).
