About Low-E Glass Introduction

About Low-E Glass Introduction

Low-E glass (low emissivity glass), is an advanced technological form of glazing which has quickly gained prominence within the construction and architectural industries. Specifically designed to reduce heat transfer while increasing energy efficiency in buildings. Low-E glass is coated with an invisible metallic layer to serve as a thermal barrier and allow visible light through while reflecting significant infrared energy back out into space. This special treatment also prevents intruding infrared energy from coming through to reach our eyes directly, further decreasing energy loss through infrared radiation. Low-E glass helps ensure a more consistent indoor climate by limiting heat loss during colder months and blocking solar gain during warmer ones. Low-E glass has become an effective solution for improving insulation, decreasing energy use and creating more environmentally sustainable living and working spaces. Due to its exceptional thermal properties, low-E glass has quickly become one of the go-to choices in energy-efficient buildings - contributing significantly towards green architecture advancement.

Low-e glass has the following features:

Coating: Low-e glass is coated with an extremely thin coating of metal or metal oxide on its surface to reflect heat away and decrease solar radiation passing through, thus improving energy efficiency and improving the energy performance of this glass material. However, its transparency allows its natural color transmission as well as light transmission capabilities without interference or compromise to light transmission capabilities.

Energy saving: Low-e glass can easily adapt the indoor temperature according to changing climate conditions, decreasing heating or air conditioning usage. In wintertime it keeps heat inside where it belongs while keeping you cozy warm; and during summer it blocks outdoor heat entering while keeping you cooler.

Anti-UV: Low-e glass filters out ultraviolet radiation to shield people and objects in a room from its damaging rays, safeguarding people against age-related skin aging and cancer risks as well as discoloring furniture or carpets from direct sun light damage. Its filters also filter out hazardous air pollution that emits radiation that damages furniture or carpets directly by its impact.

Sound Insulation: Low-e glass helps minimize noise pollution as its sound insulation performance is increased with its coating, creating quiet environments such as bedrooms, offices or schools that promote restful and relaxing living experiences.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

The main difference between a Low E glass and an ordinary glass is that Low E glass has a very thin coating applied to one side of the glass. 

Absolutely! Low-e glass options are definitely worth the investment.

Low-E is a fully clear window coating. It differs from tinted glass, which blocks light but does not reduce heat transfer. So if you choose to add a low-e coating to your replacement windows, you won't sacrifice visibility for energy efficiency.

Project Review-The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

A large expansion of $1.5 billion was completed in October 2019, in which Togen’s shower enclosure hardware as well as Laminated Glass and Frit Glass were innovatively used as decorative materials. The expansion project added a 450-foot (140 m) "Guitar Hotel" with 638 rooms and a seven-story 168-room "Oasis Tower" overlooking the pool cabanas. After the expansion completed, The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has become one of the largest hospitality and entertainment venues in South Florida.

Argon Makes the Glass Perform Better

Argon gas is a colorless, odorless, and inert gas that has been used by window manufacturers for years. Double-pane windows can be filled with argon gas to help insulate a room and minimize the transfer of heat through the window glass.
