Low Emissivity Glass
We recognize that a well-insulated home can save money on heating, so we offer “Low e” glass (sometimes referred to as “K” glass) for customers that are looking to lower their home heating bills by retaining more heat in their house.
Low Emissivity glass is only available for double-glazed windows, but can be supplied with either normal or toughened glass. This feature is provided using a metal-oxide layer that reduces the infrared radiation transferred between the cold and warm panes of glass.
This type of glass results in an approximate reduction of energy loss by around 30-50% over non-treated glass. Low E glass comes in a choice of two types of coating. “Soft-coat” is applied between panes of a double-glazed unit, because it is easily damaged, and it degrades when exposed to air.
“Hard-coat” can be applied to existing glass installations, and is more durable than “soft-coat”, although the performance compared to it is inferior.
