Energy Efficient (Low-e) Glass

 

Energy Efficient (Low-e) Glass  

There are two main types of Low-e glass, soft-coat and hard-coat, both of which have a special thin coating on one side which allows the heat from the sun to pass through in one direction while reducing the thermal transfer in the reverse direction.

The principle behind this is the difference in thermal wavelength of energy transmitted from the sun and that transmitted from the heat within a room.



A hard-coat glass has the coating applied once the glass is cooled (hard) and soft-coat is applied whilst the glass is still hot (soft).



This special coating often gives a very slight brown or grey tint to the glass.



Our double glazed units are also filled with Argon gas as standard to further improve their thermal properties.

As standard we supply Low-e glass

(Ug = 1.2W/m2 K, calculated in accordance with EN 763) in order to comply with current building regulations regarding safety and heat loss.

 

There are a number of ways we can further lower these U Values including warm edged spacer bars.
