LoE-452® blocks harshness of the sun with a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.22 on Clear compared with 0.62 of regular low-E double glazed.
When room temperature falls below 11 degrees there is the risk of thermal discomfort inside the room. It has a low U-Value of just 1.34 compared to 1.6 of regular low-E double glazed.
LoE-452® comes standard with Neat, a titanium dioxide layer which harnesses the sun’s rays to loosen dirt so the rain can wash it away with minimal streaks.
At the top of its game in terms of passive design, LoE-452® boasts exceptional solar gain coupled with outstanding insulating capabilities for less energy consumption.
LoE-452® achieves a Visible Light Transmission (VLT) figure of 50% in certain IGU make ups, above the desired standard for commercial projects, unlike tinted glass.
LoE-452® blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays, a leading cause of fading.
- Available on Clear glass
- Double glazed in an Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) on surface 2
- Can be paired up with LoE-i89 on surface 4 for unprecedented performance
A clear quad silver low-E with a subtle grey tinge and the next level of performance makes LoE-452 the superior option for solar control and light balance. In fact it boasts an LSG (Light to Solar Gain) of 2.33, matched only by LoĒ³-366®, only LoE-452 has a lower SHGC which gives it added performance. Due to its outstanding solar control, we recommend it for both commercial and residential applications in predominently warm climates or western facing elevations in mixed climates.
