What are the benefits of Low E glass?
It allows better thermal insulation to be achieved without the need to change the window framing system of an existing house as this would normally have to be undertaken if double glazed units were specified because they are often too thick to fit in normal framing.
It’s the Low E coating on the inside of the building that will reduce heat loss in winter and re-radiation to the inside in summer. This allows a very cost effective balance of performance to be achieved in a relatively thin glass.
When it’s a laminate, it achieves a Grade A safety rating and can be used in low level glazing and in other areas where safety glass is required.
