Energy-saving and Comfort Glass
Ordinary glass can be responsible for up to 40% of the energy lost through your doors and windows. Our specialised energy saving glass products offer an effective way to achieve better energy efficiency by reducing the cost of heating and cooling.
Energy efficient glass, sometimes also called ‘sun control glass’, energy saving glass’ or ‘eco-glass’ is glass that has been designed to greatly reduce the amount of heat passing through your windows.
Energy efficiency can be achieved with glass tints, vinyl tints, low-emissivity coatings, reflective coatings, double glazing, or a combination of the above. Depending on the combinations that are used, the glass will perform differently, some better than others.
Not only does energy saving glass reduce heat from leaving your buildings, but it also helps to reflect any interior heat back into your spaces.
Low-emissivity glass (or low-e glass, as it is commonly referred to) is a type of energy-efficient glass coated with a high-performance invisible coating designed specifically to prevent heat escaping through your windows or other glass installations. (read more on Low E glass here )
