Energy Advantage™ is a high performance, highly transparent clear Low E glass designed to provide significant improvement on thermal insulation and solar control compared to clear float glass. 

Designed to provide high solar heat gain by reflecting heat back into the room, which means that as well as retaining warmth in a room, it allows high level of solar energy to enter, for warmer and brighter interiors and reduced heating and lighting costs.

Features & Benefits
  • High solar heat gain decreasing further the need for heating and lighting
  • Provides significant improvement on thermal insulation and solar control compared to clear float glass
  • Allows high level of solar energy to enter, for warmer and brighter interiors
  • Suitable for safety glass applications and can be toughened to avoid risk of thermal breakage
  • Can be used in monolithic form or combined with K&K performance IGU to increase energy efficiency or laminated for added safety and noise reduction

Considerations

Energy Advantage™ can be cut and processed, toughened, laminated, curved or fabricated into K&K performance range of insulating glass units to significantly improve the performance and energy efficiency.

The Low E coating requires special care when cleaning and installing the product to ensure it maintains its quality. Refer to the resource centre for care and cleaning instructions.

The Low E coated surface should be glazed to the inside of the building and should not be used when the surface is permanently exposed to the exterior.

The placement of air conditioning vents adjacent to and directed on the internal glass surface coating may reduce the performance of this product.
