Energy Efficiency Numbers Headers

Full frame window values versus Center-of-Glass (COG) values: Poorly insulated window frames can transfer unwanted heat or cold into your home. That’s why it is important to know the insulating capabilities of the entire window, not just the center of glass. Full frame R-value or U-factor indicate how well an entire window is insulated.

U-factor: Measures how well heat is transferred by a window and can affect heating and air conditioning costs. The lower the U-factor, the better the insulating properties.

R-value: R-Value is a standard measure of heat loss through a partition, such as a wall, window, or door. The higher the R-Value, the better its insulating properties.

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC): Measures the percent of solar heat that actually enters through a window. The smaller the number, the better the window is at preventing solar heat from entering your home.

Visible Light Transmission (VT): Measures how much light comes through the glass. The lower the number, the less visible light is transmitted.

UV Blockage: Measures the percentage of damaging solar radiation that is blocked and not allowed to enter your home. The higher the percentage, the less fading and damage to your furnishings and carpeQuantum pg6 Bottom left image2Innovative Window Technology Header

NumbersSouthwall Heat Mirror technology glass packages match the insulation characteristics of triple-pane glass without any of the design limitations and weight issues typical of triple-pane glass systems.

A combination of inert Argon or Krypton gases is used to ll the glass cavity based upon glass selection. These harmless gases provide superior insulating capability against the transfer of heat or cold from the outside.

Offering greater durability, strength, thermal insulation, and corrosion resistance than traditional aluminum frames, the Kensington HPP‘s Quantum2 vinyl frames are made from extruded virgin vinyl and fusion welded at all corners, making them permanently air and water tight.

Low-E coatings are applied to the lm and/or glass to help reflect heat back to its source and block damaging ultraviolet radiation. Radiant heat from within your home is reflected back inside, keeping your home warm in the winter. Solar radiation from the sun is reflected away, keeping it cooler indoors in the summer.

The spacer system in a window is small but can significantly impact a window’s overall insulation value. Every Quantum2 window features a warm edge spacer system that reduces condensation, improves thermal efficiency, and helps maintain indoor temperature.

The combination of thermal coatings, Southwall Heat Mirror technology, insulating gases, and a warm edge spacer system creates unique high performing glass packages that are designed for your specific home and climate.
