Lormac offers a choice between Soft Coat LoE² Glass and Soft Coat LoE-179 Glass to find the best choice to provide solutions for reducing cooling costs in the summer and reducing heating costs in the winter. Our energy efficient windows offer excellent energy savings year round.
Energy Efficient Windows Provide Solar Control for All seasons
Every day, the sun provides an enormous amount of energy. In colder climate areas, this energy is beneficial and welcomed for warming homes. But summer temperatures throughout the U.S. can reach a blistering level and bring discomfort into the home. Since the majority of solar heat gain comes through your windows, choosing the right glass can be a key factor in comfort and year-round energy savings.
Cardinal Soft Coat LoE²-270® glass is the perfect glass for all season comfort. This energy efficient window glass reduces solar heat gain by 50% or more when compared to ordinary glass. Although it is a clear glass, Soft Coat LoE²-270 even outperforms ordinary tinted glass typically used in sunny climates. And though it's coated, Soft Coat LoE²-270 lets the light shine in to warm your house during the cooler winter months.
Glass so smart, it can control your comfort
Soft Coat LoE²-270 glass features a unique coating that has been specially formulated to reject the sun’s heat, damaging rays and keep your home cool and comfortable.
Using Cardinal’s state-of-the-art vacuum sputtering process, the glass is coated with microscopically thin, optically transparent layers of silver sandwiched between layers of anti-reflective metal oxide coatings. The patented Soft Coat LoE² coating provides the best clarity and highest performance of all low solar gain low-emissivity glass products.
Soft Coat LoE²-270’s patented coating blocks 83% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and 96% of the sun’s infrared heat. Now, instead of shutting out the sun during the hot summer months, you can let the light shine in without letting the heat come too.
Cardinal’s Soft Coat LoE² coatings reduce not just interior discomfort, but also annual energy costs.
