Energy Efficient Glass
Up to 40% of heating and cooling energy loss from buildings occurs through the windows and doors.
In a time of rising energy costs and legislative pressures energy efficient glass is not a luxury but a
Energy conservation can be achieved using two types of glass namely Low E or Low Emissivity Glass
and Double Glazing.
Low E glass has a microscopic metallic coating that prevents heating or cooling escaping through
glass by reflecting it back into your building. Double glazing uses the insulating effect of air, gas or
vacuum trapped between two pieces of glass separated by a spacer to reduce heat transfer from or
into the building. The most comprehensive solution is Double Glazing incorporating Low E glass as
one of the panes.
Benefits of Low E Glass
- Reduces energy loss by up to 30%
- Reduces glare
- Protects furniture from damaging UV rays
- Reduces energy requirement for heating or cooling
- Reduces condensation in Double Glazed units
Benefits of Double Glazing
- Reduces heating and cooling loss
- Insulates from cold or heat penetrating into the building envelope
- Lessens need for artificial heating and cooling
- Reduces condensation
- Sound deadening properties makes your building quieter
- Increased security
- A wide range of glass combinations offer a solution for any budget or required property
