  2. LoE²-270 (other LoE coatings available)
  3. Argon gas (for exceptions, see Glass Terminology)
  4. ThermaPlus coating on indoor surface of the glass

Laminated Glass

The benefits of choosing laminated glass include safety, security, sound control and the ultimate in UV blockage.

  1. Double pane insulating glass
  2. LoE coating options

NOTE: Either one or both pane(s) may be laminated. If products must meet specific impact or design pressure ratings, they may or may not incorporate laminated glass, and may require construction and structural modifications as well.

Neat Glass

You may request Neat® glass, which harnesses the sun’s UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. A special sputter-coating process makes the exterior glass surface ultra smooth, so the water "sheets off" more readily than it would on uncoated glass, allowing you to spend less time cleaning.

Preserve Protective Film

Preserve is an optional, protective film that protects the glass from scratches during transit and construction, as well as reducing the time involved in job site clean-up.
