Glazing Options


LoE Glass Options

The LoE Glass options include the LoE 180, LoE 272, LoE 366, LoF Glass, Double Pane, Triple Pane, Tempered Glass and Laminated Glass. The LoE 180 glass does the job when it comes to a cold weather because it warms up the house by blocking heat loss to the outside making the home more comfortable. LoE 272 provides all year intermediate reflection of heat back into the room during the cold season and rejects the heat from the sun as well as its UV rays during the hot season. Cardinal LoE 366 on the other hand is the ultimate stop for a performance glass. It offers comfort courtesy of its ability to balance the solar control and high level visibility and further offers the highest levels throughout the entire year.

LoF (Libby Owens Ford) leads in making glass for the buildings of the world and vehicles. After being acquired by Pilkington, the firm has outstretched its reach to many countries in a bid to satisfy as many clients as possible. The glass has characteristic strength that suit the northern climate as well as a high heat retention rate that keeps heat in the house during winter and prevents heat from house during summer. Other glasses include the tempered glass that is 4-5 times stronger than the normal glass and the laminated glass that is both very safe and secure because it is made by the bonding of two glass pieces with an inner plastic layer called polyvinyl butyral.

LoE 180

When the weather turns frigid, Cardinal LoE-180 glass is the perfect cold remedy. It keeps homes warmer and more comfortable by blocking heat loss to the outside and letting the sun’s heat stream in. With a glass U-Factor of just 0.26 and an SHGC of 0.69, LoE – 180 is the ideal product for passive solar applications. It extends a warm welcome home while achieving the highest ER values.

LoE 272

Who says you can’t do anything about the weather? Cardinal’s LoE coated glass delivers year-round comfort in all types of weather. In summer, it rejects the sun’s heat and damaging UV rays. In winter, it reflects heat back into the room. Cardinal LoE glass includes two variations, LoE-272 and LoE-270. LoE-272 offers a little more light transmittance, while LoE-270 gives a little more solar control.

LoE 366

Cardinal LoE-366® glass is the ultimate performance glass. It just might make all other low-e glass obsolete. LoE-366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. And it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings. It’s also the one glass you can use to be compliant in every ENERGY STAR zone – in a double-pane window. Couple it with LoE-i89®, and you’re compliant in the North. Its low SHGC makes it compliant throughout the rest of the country as well. It’s the perfect glass wherever you live.

LoF Glass

LOF (Libby Owens Ford) / Pilkington Energy Advantage LOF – Pilkington Energy Advantage Low-E is the best glass for most applications in a northern climate. It has a very high retention rate of the heat in your home in winter and prevents heat gain from outside in summer. Energy Advantage Glass has a higher Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) than Low-E glass designed for more southern climates, providing free winter heat for your home. Since as much as 95% of your energy expense for heating and cooling combined is for heating, this glass is more cost effective than glass without a high SHGC.

Double Pane

A. High quality Aneeled Glass
B. Low-E glass coating

Triple Pane

A. High quality Aneeled Glass
B. Single or Double Low-E Glass Coating
C. Two chambers of Argon or Krypton Gas
D. Top quality Warm – Edge Spacer
E. Primery Sealant
F. Secondary Sealant

Tempered Glass

Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that is 4-5 times stronger than regular glass. Because of how its made (through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling) it is a much harder and more brittle type of glass. When tempered glass breaks, it shatters into little pebbles without any dangerous sharp edges

Laminated Glass

Laminated Glass is both a safety and security glass. It is made by bonding two pieces of glass together with a plastic inner layer called polyvinyl butyral. However, laminated glass cracks much easier than tempered on impact.
