A new standard
Cardinal introduces LoĒ³-366 (pronounced low E cubed-366), the ultimate
performance glass. It just might make all other low-E glasses obsolete.
LoĒ³-366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility.
And it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy
savings, making it the perfect glass no matter where you live. The secret?
An unprecedented triple layer of silver. This is beyond ordinary low-E
glass; LoĒ³-366 sets the new standard.
Low-E times three makes the difference
Cardinal has for years worked with top-tier window manufacturers by
providing energy-efficient LoĒ² glass. Now with three layers of year-round
thermal protection, the benefits are exceptional.
The result: a clear
coating that blocks even more solar gain than ever before, reflects heat
and lets the light stream in. Notice the difference below between clear
glass, regular low-E glass and new LoĒ³-366.
Energy savings all year long
The full-year benefits of LoĒ³-366 can be clearly seen. When the
temperature soars in the summer, ordinary window glass just can't beat the
heat. And tinted glass spoils the view. LoĒ³-366 is formulated to reject
solar heat while maintaining attractive visibility. So it keeps the heat
out while letting light in. As a matter of fact, LoĒ³-366 glass is our
ultimate in performance and clarity among all of Cardinal's clear coated
What is more, LoĒ³-366 provides the ultimate in fading
protection. It blocks 95% of the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays - a
leading cause of fading - so your furniture, carpets, curtains and wall
coverings stay beautiful for years.
During the cold weather, the insulating effect of your windows has a
direct impact on how your rooms feel. The better insulated the window
glass, the warmer your room will feel. In fact, the
Windows Collaborative suggests that when glass surface temperature
falls below 52°F, there is a risk of thermal discomfort. To maintain the
best comfort during the winter, select a glass product that produces
surface temperatures that will stay above this point during the coldest
According the chart below, the insulating capability of LoĒ³-366 can't
be compared to any other glass product. This is a key factor in the
construction of comfortable homes. Additionally, the dramatic comfort
improvement in windows with warm glass surfaces means the humidity of the
indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. Proper humidity
levels will improve comfort and promote a healthier living environment.
Saving money and protecting the environment
According to the
Consumer Federation of America
, the average American household spends
$1,500 per year on energy costs. But energy-efficient windows can help
save a bundle. In fact, you can reduce your energy bills by one-third by
simply using low-emissivity glass.
But not only does it make financial sense, it's smart to do in view of
limited global resources. Conscious consumers are increasingly making
purchasing decisions based current environmental realities. By using
products that reduce energy consumption, one diminishes their
environmental footprint, limiting usage of fossil fuels and lowering
