Windows With Low-E Glass by Vitro Glass Provide Comfort in any Climate
Low-e glass by Vitro Glass is what to look for in a window. Low-e window glass by Vitro Glass is energy efficient and made to look great in any home, in any climate.
PPG pioneered low-e glass coatings in the 1980s and has spent decades refining its low-e glass products. In fact, Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG glass) holds more patents than any other manufacturer in the glass industry. Issues such as temperature increase, heat loss and damaging solar rays are challenges for any standard clear glass window. Low-e window glass by Vitro Glass addresses all of these issues and helps maximize the comfort and energy-saving potential of a home, whether in a sunny desert retreat in Arizona or a frosty lake house in Minnesota.
Better understanding Low-E Glass
Vitro glass' very own Glenn the Glass guy goes into further detail about the low-e coatings on window glass. In three very informative videos, Glenn explains what low-e coatings are, how they work and the different types available for homeowners.
Understanding the Sun's Energy
Glenn explains the three forms of the Sun's energy and how low-e coatings combat harmful UV and Infrared Energy. Using a thermos, Glenn demonstrates how low-e coatings work on window glass.

Low-E Coatings Put to the Test
Glenn shows a how a thin microscopic silver coating applied on window glass actually slows the infrared and UV energy from passing through the glass.

Two Types of Low-E Glass; One Promise of Comfort
Glenn illustrates how there are two distinctly different types of Low-E Glass—passive and solar control. He also explains how the climate you live determines the right type of glass and how it can help save in energy costs.
