PPG: Glass Specification Tool
PPG Industries has upgraded the “Construct” tool on PPG Glass eVIEW, a multifunctional suite of web-based tools that reportedly enables architects, glazing contractors, glass fabricators, and other building professionals to search, construct, view, and compare virtual glazing configurations in three dimensions. The new PPG Glass eVIEW Construct tool incorporates several features designed to reportedly make it the most comprehensive and easy-to-use online specification tool in the glass industry. These features include access to PPG and competitors’ glass performance data, a password-free gateway to a large product performance database, side-by-side comparison capability, and customized report generation.
“The growing popularity of building information modeling demands that our industry continues to invest in online tools like this,” said Steve Marino, support manager, flat glass. “Not only is the program agnostic in terms of product information, but visitors can use it anonymously to protect their privacy. Our primary goal is to offer architects and other glazing industry professionals a state-of-the-art package that can become their default glass specification tool.”
Other PPG Glass eVIEW Construct tool features include capabilities to build multi-cavity insulating glass units (IGUs), to choose imperial or metric values, and to view comparative color-space plotting for aesthetics.
