Low-e glass stands for low emissivity glass. This glass varies from normal clear glass in that one side of the glass has a special metal coating, technically known as a low emissivity, or Low E. coating. Low-E glass is a type of insulating glass, which increases the energy efficiency of windows by reducing the transfer of heat or cold through glass. That means in the winter your house stays warmer, and in the summer it stays cooler.
Energy-efficient insulating units for residential applications to help you conserve energy and save money. Levels of performance and appearances are customized to meet the client's request to battle hot or cold temperatures that will help create and maintain a pleasant atmosphere indoors. Choose from several low-e coatings that will keep you cool during summer and warm during winter.
