Low E Glass

Low E Glass. Learn All About It.

How Does Low E Glass Work & Increase Energy Efficiency?

This solar control glass increases energy efficiency by doing 2 things. It’s hard or soft coats decrease the amount of heat transmitted into a building but don’t limit the amount of light allowed in. So, low E products significantly improve overall heating, cooling and lighting costs because less heat gets through.

What makes this high performance glass work is its high-tech transparent coating. Affixed to the glass surface, it reflects UV rays and infrared energy away from a building. So, regardless of which hard or soft coats you purchase, they will perform better than clear glass. This is because low E coatings decrease solar heat gain by more than half.

Will These Coatings Protect My Client’s Interior Furnishings from Fading?

Yes. Low E glass will help prevent interior furnishings from fading. Since these hard and soft coats block damaging UV rays from entering homes or offices, items such as flooring, carpeting, curtains and furniture will be less likely to fade over time.

Can Solar Control Glass Be Used in IG Units?

Yes it can. These energy efficient coatings are one of the many IG unit combos we offer. When low E glass is included in IG units, they yield even higher performance.
