Glass requires special considerations during the specification process.
Selecting the right glass to meet a project’s thermal loads.
Performance through passive and solar control low-e coatings.
Factors to consider when specifying large insulating glass units.
The difference between types of heated glass.
For an easy way to understand how low-e glass coatings help keep rooms comfortable, simply look at how a thermos works.
Low-e coatings are 500 times as thin as a human hair, yet have a tremendous impact on a building’s overall energy efficiency.
Understanding the solar energy spectrum is the first step in understanding how low-e coatings work.
A multi-step glass manufacturing process where liquid glass is formed by “floating” it on molten metal.
