Low E Glass
Glass is one of the most popular and versatile building materials used today, due in part to its constantly improving solar and thermal performance. One way this performance is achieved is through the use of passive and solar control low-e coatings.
Low-e is standard clear or tinted glass which has a special coating on one surface of the glass. Low-e refers to low emissivity and this describes the capacity of a surface to radiate heat. Emissivity is measured across a scale from 0 to 1 with 1 representing the highest emissivity.
Low-e coatings provide various performance levels and the glass can be used in a variety of ways including single glazing, laminated glass or insulated glass units. Mercury Glass stock and processes a wide range of hard coated Low E glass, in annealed laminated and toughened. In addition to this we source a variety of project specific Low E products that are incorporated into custom laminate and IGU make-ups from our certified manufacturing partners.
