LoĒ³ - 366 Ultimate Solar Control Glass
Cardinal LoĒ³-366® glass is the ultimate performance glass. It just might make all other low-e glass obsolete. LoĒ³-366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. And it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings. It’s also the one glass you can use to be compliant in every ENERGY STAR zone – in a double-pane window. Couple it with LoĒ-i89®, and you’re compliant in the North.
A unique triple-layer coating. LoĒ³-366 adds a third layer of silver coating. Result: a clear coating that blocks even more solar gain, reflects heat, and lets the light stream in. LoĒ³-366 actually outperforms the tinted glass often used in warm climates.
LoĒ - 180 Passive Solar Control Glass
LoĒ – 180 keeps homes warmer and more comfortable by blocking heat loss to the outside and letting the sun’s heat stream in. LoĒ – 180 is the ideal product for passive solar applications. It extends a warm welcome home while achieving the highest ER values.
Regardless of where your home is located, choosing windows that provide you with the highest level of comfort and energy savings year-round is extremely important. And choosing the right glass for your windows is the most important factor in the decision. Go beyond ordinary low-e glass – choose Cardinal LoĒ-180, the ideal choice for passive solar designs.
LoĒ²-272 Glass for All Climates
LoĒ² -272 glass delivers year round comfort, and is ideal for all weather conditions in most climates, whether it’s 20 below or 110 in the shade. In winter, LoĒ²-272 reflects heat back into the room. In summer, it rejects the sun’s heat and damaging UV rays. Not only is it the clearest, highest performing glass you can buy, there’s no haze or bluish cast.
LoĒ-i89 Roomside LoĒ Glass Enhanced Winter Performance Glass
LoĒ-i89 is an energy-saving 4th surface coated glass. It offers more light transmittance and less reflectance than LoĒ-i81. And it’s now available in annealed making it less expensive.
When LoĒ-i89 is used in conjunction with LoĒ³-366, your windows are in compliance with ENERGY STAR. What’s more, the LoĒ-i89 surface is smooth and scratch resistant, making it easier to clean and there’s no haze to mar the view. As well, rather than absorbing internal heat, LoĒ-i89 reflects it back into the room, making your living space feel warmer and more comfortable. LoĒ-i89, an enhanced performance glass.
Double-pane windows become triple-pane performers.
LoĒ-i89 is sputtered onto the indoor lite, the #4 surface, thus reflecting escaping heat back into the room and lowering U-factors. Coupled with LoĒ² or LoĒ³ glass and argon fill, this double-pane unit delivers performance much better than a clear triple-pane.
