Low E Glass
Senator Windows uses SGG Planitherm low-E glass as standard in all its energy rated windows, Thermally insulating glass (also known as low-emissivity or low-E glass) usually forms the inner pane of an insulated glass unit (IGU). The glass has a transparent metallic coating that reflects heat from radiators back into the room, rather than allowing it to escape through the windows. At the same time it allows free heat and light from the sun (known as passive solar heat gain) to pass through the glass, warming your home and further contributing to the energy efficiency of your windows.
What are the benefits of the SGG Planitherm range compared to traditional hard coat low- E glass?
SGG PLANITHERM is manufactured using the most technologically advanced coating process to offer:
Better thermal insulation - reducing heat loss further (around 24% better than traditional hard coats) saving you even more money on your heating bills and making your room more comfortable. Less energy wastage is also better for the environment!
Less of a tint to the glass - this gives clearer vision through your windows and means your curtains or Georgian Bars do not look dirty or discoloured.
More light – less tint also means more light can enter the room, making a more comfortable environment and reducing the need for extra lighting inside.
Less chance of ‘haze’ (dusty effect- this effect is common with traditional types of thermally insulating glass due to the way it is manufactured.
