Low-E Glass

Energy efficient glass providing improved solar control and thermal insulation.


Low-E glass is an energy efficient glass with a unique, durable and virtually invisible metallic coating providing improved solar control and thermal insulation. This glass works best when combined in IGU’s for improved energy efficiency over ordinary single glass. There are two different types available, hard coat pyrolytic which can be glazed as single glass and soft ‘sputter’ coated which can only be glazed in IGU’s.

  • Energy efficient glass providing improved solar control and thermal insulation;
  • Helps reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss through improvements in SHGC and U-values when compared to ordinary non coated glass;
  • Reduces heating and cooling energy costs;
  • Coating is durable and most have low visual reflectivity.

Residential and commercial glazing to meet energy requirements.

When compared to ordinary non coated clear glass, Low-E glass can introduce some added complexities in relation to selection of glass types, manufacture and installation. For more information (Download)
