ECO GAIN 180 High Solar Gain Glass
When the weather turns frigid, Eco Gain 180 is the perfect cold remedy! Eco Gain 180 provides excellent insulating capability by blocking heat loss to the outside and reflecting heat back into the room. It is the ideal glass for passive solar applications as it allows the winter sun’s heat to pass into the home and provide “free heat.” It also blocks 76% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.
ECO SHIELD 270 Solar Control Glass
When it comes to solar control, the sun does not stand a chance against Eco Shield 270. It is the perfect glass for fighting the heat. Eco Shield 270 reduces solar heat gain by 50% or more compared to ordinary glass in the summer and keeps homes cozy by blocking heat loss in the winter. It blocks 86% of the sun’s UV rays yet lets light stream in due to its exceptional clarity without a heavy bronze or smokecolored tint to spoil the image.
ECO MAX SHIELD 366 Ultimate Performance Glass
Eco Max Shield 366 has been specially formulated to reject the summer sun’s heat without affecting the view. It lets more light in and keeps more heat out so homes stay cool and comfortable – with no room-darkening tints and virtually no exterior reflectance. The ultimate in solar control and clarity! Eco Max Shield 366 provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making it the perfect glass no matter where you live. It sports an unprecedented three layers of silver which reduce solar gain, reflect furnace heat back into the room and let light stream in.
ECO TINT 240 Glare Control Glass
Eco Tint 240 is a specially treated version of Low E glass that provides effective glare control and maximum solar heat blockage – without creating discomfort near the glass inside, or the visual nuisance of highly reflective glass outside. It also maintains year-round comfort, blocking oppressive solar heat gain and maintaining cool glass temperatures in summer, as well as warm inside glass temperatures in winter.
