Laminated glass is two pieces of glass with a strong plastic layer sandwiched in between. Laminated glass is highly effective in reducing noise and ultraviolet rays that can cause drapes and upholstery to fade. Laminated glass also offers a high level of security.
Low-E (Low Emissivity) Glass
Glass that has a thin layer of metal oxide applied to the exterior face of the interior glazing in a double glazed window. This coating allows the sunlight to pass through, but blocks the heat from escaping. Low-E glazing filters out the suns ultraviolet (UV) rays, which can fade furnishings. It can also reduce condensation on the window by keeping the indoor surface of the glass and frame warmer.
