Cardinal™ Coated LoE Glass
Regardless of where your home is located, choosing windows that provide you with the highest level of comfort and energy savings year-round is extremely important. And choosing the right glass for your windows is the most important factor in the decision. Go beyond ordinary low-e glass.
LoE glass reflects heat back into a room in winter and rejects the sun's heat and damaging solar rays in summer, increasing comfort, decreasing energy costs, protecting against fading of interior furnishings, and reducing condensation.
Hot or cold outside, who says you can't do anything about the weather? Cardinal LoE2 272 glass delivers year-round comfort, whether it's 20 below or 110 in the shade. In winter, LoE2 272 reflects heat back into the room. In summer, it rejects the sun's heat and damaging UV rays. Not only is it the clearest, highest performing glass you can buy, there's no haze or bluish tint.
The coating is virtually invisible to the eye, yet blocks 84% of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. In fact, LoE2 272 even outperforms the tinted glass often used in warm, sunny climates. You see out and the light shines in, with no heavy bronze or smoke-colored tints to darken the personality of your home.
During cold weather, the insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on how your rooms feel. Typically, 75% of the exposed surface of a window is glass, and the temperature of the room-side of the glass directly affects the air temperature in the room. The better insulated the window glass, the warmer your room will be. In fact, the Efficient Windows Collaborative (efficientwindows.org) suggests that when glass surface temperature falls below 52 degrees Fahrenheit, there is a risk of thermal discomfort. To maintain the best comfort during the winter, select a glass product that provides surface temperatures that will stay above this point during the coldest outdoor conditions.

LoE3 366 Ultimate Performance Glass*
Cardinal's LoE3 366, the ultimate performance glass, just might make all other low-e glass obsolete. LoE3 366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. And it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making it the perfect glass no matter where you live. The secret? An unprecedented 3 layers of silver. For your next windows, go beyond ordinary low-e glass.
Beats the heat. Keeps the view.
When the temperature soars, ordinary window glass just can't handle the heat. And tinted glass spoils the view. Cardinal LoE3 366, however, has been specially formulated to reject the sun's heat without affecting the view. It lets more light in and keeps more heat out. So your home stays cool and comfortable. The patented LoE3 366 coating provides the ultimate in performance and clarity.
The superior insulating capability of LoE3 366 is a key factor in the construction of comfortable windows for cold climates. The dramatic comfort improvement from windows with warm glass surfaces also means the relative humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. Proper humidity levels (not too much, not too little) will improve comfort and promote a healthier living environment.
3 Layers of Silver Make The Difference. LoE3 366 adds a third layer of silver coating. Result: a clear coating that blocks even more solar gain, reflects heat and lets the light stream in. All with a minimum of exterior reflectance. And no heavy bronze or smoke-colored tints to darken your home. LoE3 366 actually outperforms the tinted glass often used in warm climates.
