Reduces Ultra Violet Energy

Reduces Ultra Violet Energy


COOLER IN THE SUMMER

The total energy transmitted through the glass is 7% less for Low E + Argon and 50% less for  Sunstop® than for standard insulating glass

  • Lower SHGC means less summer heat
  • Helps keep it cool inside
  • Helps reduce air conditioning costs

REDUCES ULTRA VIOLET ENERGY

Compared to standard insulating glass harmful UV rays are reduced by 17% with Low E + Argon and by 72% with Sunstop® 

  • Protects your valuable furniture fabrics and carpets from fading

VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMISSION

Low E + Argon and Sunstop® transmit almost as much visible light as standard clear insulating glass

  • Provides exterior appearance similar to clear glass
  • Sunstop® provides glare control 

 


WARMER IN THE WINTER

The winter night time U-Value is 35% better with Low E + Argon and almost 45% better with Sunstop® than with standard insulating glass

  • Lower U-Value means better insulating
  • Reduces heat loss
  • Reduces heating costs

 


Note All comparisons are based on windows containing insulating units with three 1/8" (3mm) glass lights and 1/2" (12mm) air-filled spaces for the standard clear insulating glass and argon gas filled space for Low E + Argon and Sunstop® insulating glass. Actual glass performance may differ slightly due to glass thickness, gas fill and glass to frame ratio. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) is a ratio of how much solar heat is transmitted through the glass compared to 1/8" (3mm) thick clear glass. (Lower numbers mean less summer heat.)
