Solar Gain Low E Glass
As our standard glass option, solar gain glass has a very high retention rate to keep your home warm in the winter. By its thermal insulation performance, Solar Gain glass minimizes thermal loss. Solar Gain is one of the best performing, low emissivity (low-e) glasses on the market and optimizes the energy efficiency of windows through double and triple glazed panes.
Solar Shield Low E Glass
Solar Shield glass is engineered to control solar heat gain, which is essential to minimize cooling costs. Solar Shield is chosen for uses where cooling costs outweigh heating costs in your energy usage, or where summer discomfort from heat build-up should be an important concern. Solar Shield blocks 66% of the total solar energy while allowing 70% of the visible light to pass through.
E-Clean Glass combines the benefits of Solar Shield LOW E with a revolutionary coating to keep your glass cleaner, all-year-round. Its unique dual-action coating uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from dirt, giving not only the practical benefit of less cleaning but also clearer, better-looking windows.
Argon Gas is filled between the panes of glass in your windows to reduce the amount of energy loss in your windows. This odorless, non-toxic gas moves slower than air does, slowing down or stopping the energy that travels through it.
Krypton Gas like Argon is filled between the panes of glass in your windows to reduce the amount of energy loss. The difference being Krypton is much denser than argon slowing down the energy even more.
