Energy Efficiency Specifications

Double-Glazed with ThermaGuardTM Glass

This figure illustrates the characteristics of a double-glazed window with ThermaGuard Glass and argon gas filled.These windows are often referred to as spectrally selective low-E glass due to their ability to reduce solar heat gain while retaining high visible transmittance.Compared to most tinted and reflective glazings, this low-E glass provides a higher level of visible light transmission for agiven amount of solar heat reduction. The very high reflective properties of ThermaGuard Glassreduce the cost of air-conditioning by suppressing radiative heat flow. This results in a very good return on investment.

ThermaGuardTM Glass with Turtle Tint

Variants on low-solar-gain low-E coatings have also been developed which may appear slightly tinted.
This type of low-E product reduces heat loss in winter and substantially reduces solar heat gain both in winter
and in summer. Thus, low-solar-gain low-E glazings are ideal for buildings located in cooling-dominated climates.

Low-solar-gain low-E glass is typically made with sputtered low-E coatings consisting of either two or three
layers of silver (also called double-silver or triple-silver low-E). ThermaGuardTM Glass is a
triple-silver low-E-Plus. The Plus comes from extra components within the glass that make all other low-E
glass obsolete in Florida’s tropical sun and heat
