Double-Glazed with Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass
These windows are often referred to as spectrally selective low-E glass. This is due to their ability to reduce solar heat gain while retaining high visible transmittance. Compared to most tinted and reflective glazings, low-E glass provide a higher level of visible light transmission for a given amount of solar heat reduction.
The very high reflective properties of hurricane Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass reduce the cost of air-conditioning by suppressing radiative heat flow. As a result, hurricane impact windows pay for themselves over time. This is considered a very good return on investment.
Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade 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. As a result, 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. These consist of either two or three layers of silver (also called double-silver or triple-silver low-E). Hurricane Impact Windows with Pro Solar Shade Glass are 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.
