There are several types of glass used in replacement windows Denver specialized firms recommend to their customers for better energetic performance, improved sun lighting and superior ultraviolet radiation protection.
The following types of glass are the most frequently used:
- Low-E4 Glass – provides exceptional thermal performance, especially in climates where cooling and heating costs represent a concern. This type of glass is up to 56% better performing in terms of efficiency, compared to ordinary dual-pane glass.
- Low-E4 SmartSun Glass – is another type of glass with very good overall thermal performance. It brings all the benefits presented by Low-E4 Glass, but also an improved shield against the sun’s heat. It also filters out up to 95% of harmful ultraviolet rays, but lets sunshine enter through the window.
- Low-E4 Sun Glass – has outstanding thermal performance, especially in southern climates, when less solar heat is desired. This glass is tinted in order to provide maximum protection against intense sunlight.
- Dual-Pane Glass – is available for replacement windows Denver projects where construction codes allow its use, as the local codes could restrict the use of certain types of window glass.
