New offerings in the EDTM line of instruments and sales kits for the glass and window industry featured at GlassBuild included the Solar Spectrum Transmission Meter, a new instrument offering the best accuracy of any type of field measuring instrument offered to date. It measures six unique performance values that are important to a variety of industries: Tuv, Tvis, Tsolar, Tir (from 900 to 1000 nm), Tir (for fuller IR range from 780 to 1700 nm +), and Damage Weight Coefficient. Specified in the ISO9050 and NFRC300 standards, the Damage Weight Coefficient assigns a percentage of 0 to 100 as to the ability of a given window product to resist fading and damage from the energy of the sun, the supplier explains. The lower the number, the better the performance of your product.
The company also featured its GC3000 Glass-Chek Pro, designed to identify types of low-E coatings and glass thickness. The device indicates if a low-E coating is a hard coat (pyrolytic) or soft coat (sputtered) product. If it is a soft coat low-E, the meter also tells users the number of silver layers used to make up the coating, allowing them to estimate the type of coating being used. This is beneficial for glass companies that use multiple types of low-E coatings for their windows, and sometimes mix up the glass or can’t identify the window out in the field. For window replacement companies, this feature helps them select the proper low-E to use in a window that offers similar energy benefits as the one being replaced.
