How Do Insulating Windows Work?

windowIf you’re thinking of replacing your windows and wonder what different types are available, here is some information from Generations Windows.

Doubleength Glass Doubleength glass provides greater structural integrity and added strength while helping to buffer the intrusion of unwanted outside noise entering the home.

LoE²-270® Soft Coat Glass Low E glass blocks solar energy and provides an improved U-value, while offering an exterior appearance similar to clear glass.

LoE³-366® Glass This ultimate performance glass delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility, making it the perfect glass no matter where you live. LoE³-366 sets the new standard.

Intercept® Spacer System Featuring the unique U-channel design, the Intercept® spacer system offers improved conduction rates by reducing the energy transfer between glass panes. In addition, this spacer flexes with temperature fluctuations to maintain an effective seal.

Supercept™ Spacer System Using the same design features of the Intercept™ spacer system, Supercept™ spacer system is made from stainless steel, an alloy known for its unsurpassed strength, durability and resistance to corrosion. The Supercept™ spacer system delivers the strongest choice for thermal performance, structural integrity and reliability to maximize your new window investment.

Super Spacer® Super Spacer® does not conduct energy as quickly as aluminum or steel spacers. So conduction and condensation rates are dramatically lowered. The non-metallic foam is both strong and flexible, so the I.G. unit maintains an airtight seal.

Argon & Krypton Gas Argon is an odorless, colorless, non-toxic gas that is six times denser than air. When placed between glass panes in insulating glass units, it helps reduce temperature transfer. Even denser than Argon gas, Krypton gas maximizes energy efficiency and reduces temperature transfer even further.

Laminated Glass Laminated glass combines two panes of glass adhered to a clear, puncture resistant, durable plastic interlayer. The benefits include increased sound control, UV protection, safety and security. When struck with force, the glass will shatter, but will remain adhered to the laminate layer, providing protection against forced entry.
