Low‑E Glass

Low-emissivity (low-e) glass coatings were developed to minimize the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that can pass through glass without compromising the amount of visible light that is transmitted. A microscopically thin transparent coating allows low-e glass to reflect exterior heat in warm temperatures and hold in heat during cold temperatures, making buildings light, bright and energy-efficient.

Vitro Architectural Glass offers two types of low-e coated glass: Solarban® solar control low-e and Sungate® passive low-e glass.
