    Low-E 4th Surface Technology from Pilkington allows a double-glazed IG unit to achieve a 12 percent improved thermal performance over a triple-pane unit, the company states. Adding a pyrolytic low-E coating to the #4 surface of the unit reflects infrared heat back into the home, reducing the amount of radiant heat loss through the glass. Infrared heat is room heat generated inside a building at... more »
