TECHNOLOGY BRINGS COOL SAVINGS
Ultrex® fiberglass is far less thermally conductive than aluminum (500x less!) and insulates much like wood. This means that Ultrex provides an insulated barrier against extreme weather temperatures, keeping your home comfortable, and helping to reduce heating and cooling costs.
We know how important energy efficiency is, and our standard LoĒ2-272® glazings are a simple means of maximizing your home’s thermal efficiency. LoĒ2-272 reflects heat back to its source so summer heat is reflected outdoors and winter indoor heating is retained. At the same time; up to 84% of the sun’s UV rays are screened to reduce fading and damage to upholstery and carpets. Argon gas and warm edge spacers are also standard features.*
Our optional LoĒ3-366® glass provides increased performance, especially in high sun exposure locations. This top-performance glass is formulated to reject solar heat while letting light in. With LoĒ3-366 glass, light and visibility are maximized, up to 95% of the sun’s damaging UV rays are blocked, and most importantly, you and your home stay cool and comfortable year round.
Summer sun is filtered and reflected back outdoors.
In the winter, indoor heat is reflected back into the home.
As our highest performing glass, LoĒ3-366/i89® combines the energy efficiency and UV protection of LoĒ3-366 while adding LoĒ3-i89® - an inside surface coating that reflects escaping heat back into the room. As an excellent solution for both the summer’s heat and winter’s cold LoĒ3-366/i89 provides comfort and increases energy efficiency.
* 0.55 is the default glazed fenestration U-Factor for a double pane nonmetal frame window from IECC 2012 Table CC303.1.3(1).
Benefits of LoĒ3-366/i89
- LoĒ3-366/i89 exceeds the most stringent energy standards without going to triple-pane glass.
- No haze or distortion often found in competitors LoĒ and triple-pane options to mar the view.
- Room side LoĒ3-366/i89 glass surface is smooth and easy to clean.
