| Low-emission glass (Low-E) is a clear glass, it has a microscopically-thin coating of metal oxide. There are two types of Low’E glass. One allows the sun’s solar heat and light to pass trough the glass into the building. At the same time it blocks radiant heat from leaving the room, reducing heat loss considerably. This is an excellent choice for east facing elevations, where some heat gain is desired in the morning hours. The other Low’E blocks both the solar and radiant heat. This is a desirable choice on South and West elevations, where summer heat gain can be excessive, and winter heat loss undesirable.
Available PPG Low-E and Cardinal Low-E.Argon gas and/or krypton gas is also available to further enhance the R Value
Laminated glass is made of two or more layers of glass with one or more “inter-layers” of polymeric material bonded between the glass layers.Laminated glass is produced using one of two methods:
Laminated glass offers many advantages. Safety and security are the best-known of these — rather than shattering on impact, laminated glass is held together by the inter-layer reducing the safety hazard associated with shattered glass fragments, as well as, to some degree, the security risks associated with easy penetration. But the inter-layer also provides a way to apply several other technologies and benefits, such as coloring sound dampening, resistance to fire, ultraviolet filtering, and other technologies that can be embedded in or with the inter-layer.
Laminated glass is used extensively in building and housing products and in the automotive and transport industries. Most building facades and most car windscreens, for example, are made with laminated glass, usually with other technologies also incorporated.
|It is heat absorbing glass, which can reduce heat load by 12% and results in energy saving in a building. The tinted glass absorbs 30 to 40 % of solar radiation while clear float glass absorbs 15%. It reduces the quantity of heat flowing into the building and results into energy saving.|
