Solar Control Low-e image

Solar Control Low-e - ENERGY SELECT™ 23

Energy Select 23 is a high performance triple-silver low-e coating on a clear glass substrate that delivers a highly desirable neutral aesthetic, with a bluer reflected color. The combination of a 0.23 solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) and a 50% visible light transmittance (VLT) makes this an ideal solution for commercial applications in the hotter climate regions. Energy Select 23 keeps more heat out, while letting natural light in to achieve greater indoor comfort and energy savings.

Solar Control Low-e Tinted Glass - ENERGY SELECT™ 25

Energy Select 25 combines the benefits of a low-e glass and the visual appeal and solar control of the Solarshield® tinted glass options, achieving SHGC performance as low as 0.25 using Pure Grey with the coating on the #2 surface. Available in Pure Grey, Pure Bronze, Meadow Green and Forest Green, Energy Select 25 blocks solar energy up to 82%, while providing a 0.25 winter U-value. In a triple-glazed application with the addition of Energy Select 63 on surface #5, Energy Select 25 offers winter U-values as low as 0.12. These spectrally selective glass options provide architects with the ability to select the aesthetics desired, and PERFORMANCE required, resulting in a beautiful and energy-efficient design for each project.
