PPG SOLARBAN 60 glass helps Legg Mason Tower earn LEED Silver

SOLARBAN® 60 glass by PPG Industries is used on the all-glass envelope of the Legg Mason Tower in Baltimore, which has earned LEED® Silver certification.

Legg Mason Tower in Baltimore, the 650,000-square-foot headquarters for one of the country’s largest investment firms, has earned LEED® Silver certification, due in part to the expansive use of SOLARBAN® 60 glass by PPG Industries on the building envelope.
Solarban 60 glass has visible light transmittance (VLT) of 70%, which works with the building’s open offices and interior glass walls to enable natural sunlight to flood workspaces. With a solar heat-gain coefficient of (SHGC) 0.38, Solarban 60 glass also works in tandem with a high-efficiency heating and cooling plant to lower heating, ventilation and air-conditioning costs and make the whole building “incredibly energy efficient,” said Michael Beatty, president of developer H&S Properties Development.
