AGC Glass Company North America has launched “Out-Star Energy Star,” an effort targeted at window manufacturers, with the goal of providing easy access to performance data and other information to help meet the more stringent Energy Star 6.0 criteria. The company website has been updated significantly to include additional performance data and configuration comparisons, with an interactive Energy Star map to make it easier to select the right glass for each region. The AGC Glass Calculator is available for creating specifications and performance data sheets on custom configurations, including U4—4th Surface Technology configurations, allowing manufacturers to improve overall window performance by as much as 15 to 20 percent, according to the fabricator.
