What is Low-E Glass for Windows?
Low-emissive or “Low-E” glass is window glass that has been treated with an invisible metal or metallic oxide coating, creating a surface that reflects heat, while allowing light to pass through. Windows treated with Low-E coatings are proven to reduce energy consumption, decrease fading of fabrics, such as on furniture or window drapes, and increase overall comfort in your home.
How does Low-E Glass Work?
Low-E glass reduces the amount of ultraviolet light that enters your home, without blocking visible light. Depending on your home’s heating and cooling needs, Window-Fix offers various types of Low-E glass o allow for high, medium or low solar gain.
Super Energy Efficient Glass is the Way to be Sustainable
Serious Materials upgraded the 6,514 dual pane windows in the Empire State Building by reusing all existing glass and creating super-insulating glass units in a dedicated processing space located onsite in the building.
Triple-Pane vs. Suspended Film
The transition from single-pane glass to dual-pane (with a single-insulated unit) provided an improvement in thermal performance. The introduction of multi-chamber glass packages – created by two or three suspended, wavelength-selective thin film technology – allow for significantly improved energy savings performance, superior durability and longevity, and installation advantages over triple-pane glazing solutions, depending on location, building type, and other factors.
Extra Weight of Triple-Pane Glass Compromises Functionality, Durability and Ease-of-Installation
Triple-pane glass units can be significantly heavier than standard insulating glass. The heavier glass requires stronger framing systems which can increase the overall cost of any building project. The extra weight can also impose strict size constraints, and may affect how much glass is used in the design of a building – impacting the overall aesthetics of a structure. General functionality of triple-pane windows is also affected by their weight. Additional stress is placed on all operable mechanisms in the window and the window hardware, wearing them out quicker.
