Sealed Glass Thermal Unitsgo to TOP

  • High efficiency double pane glass sealed units contain your choice of Low E or Low E² coating and Argon gas. These sealed units help retain the heat in your home during the cold winter months and reduce the heat penetrating your home during the hot summer months. Low E or Low E² coatings filter out the sun's damaging ultra violet rays, protecting your drapes, furniture, walls and floors from fading.
  • Upgraded ultra high efficiency triple pane glass sealed units with double Low E or Low E² coating and Argon gas are available
  • New Generation Super Spacer featuring a high performance polymer upper coating, inner organic foam and a primary and secondary sealant for the highest level of energy efficiency. These spacers improve the energy performance of a window by up to 30% and also keep the inside glass warmer where the glass meets the frame edge, which significantly reduces interior condensation at the lower portion of your windows in cold weather

Glass Optionsgo to TOP

Frosted Glass

Opaque or frosted glass provides privacy… eliminating the need for window coverings in bathrooms and other areas where privacy is required.

Tinted Glass

Bronze or Grey tinted glass increases privacy and lowers the heat gain in areas that are subjected to the sun in the hot summer months. Tinted glass is available in all Power Smart windows

Laminated Security Glass

Laminated glass contains a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer between two layers of glass, which form one panel of a thermal sealed unit. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its immense strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. Upon impact, the glass will feature a characteristic "spider web" cracking pattern

Benefits:
  • Adds a protective element to your windows enhancing safety and security to your home's windows and doors
  • Filters out the majority of UV radiation
  • Provides acoustic insulation and reduces outside noise

Self-cleaning Glass go to TOP

Optional Self-Cleaning Glass is available in all Power Smart windows.

How Self Cleaning Glass Works


Photocatalytic Process

In a photocatalytic process, ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun energizes the exterior self cleaning glass coating to help slowly break down and loosen organic dirt. Since UV light is abundant even on cloudy days or in shaded areas, this process works non-stop throughout the day.


Hydrophilic Process

The coating's hydrophilic property makes water droplets spread out, or sheet, across the surface of the glass. Because of this, when rain or a light spray of water hits the window, the water helps to more effectively rinse away, dislodged dirt. This sheeting action, which works throughout the day and night, helps the window dry quickly with minimal spotting and streaking.
