Providing world-leading glass solutions, Glassworks products combine the most sophisticated technology and machinery to produce superior performing glass solutions with Australian market demands and climate conditions top of mind.
LoE-366, LoEi89 and LoE-340 all come standard with Neat® technology, an easy-clean coating which harnesses the suns’ rays to loosen dirt so the rain can wash it away to prevent streaks and marks. This means they not only save money on the energy front, but also require far less window cleaning.
LoE3 -366® - the all-round highest performing low-e
LoÉ3-366 is the highest performing energy saving glass on the Australian market. It delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility and is ideal for commercial and residential windows.
LoÉ3-366® is manufactured with a triple layer of silver that supersedes ordinary low-e glass:
- Available on clear or grey glass
- Achieves a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.17
- Achieves a u-value of 1.36 in an argon Insulated Glass Unit (IGU)
LoÉ3-366® from Glassworks has the unique ability to reject solar heat without compromising visibility, unlike tinted glass:
- Interiors remain cool and comfortable in summer
- Exceptional fading protection
- Blocks 95% of UV rays
- Allows for optimum clarity and visibility
The insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on how your rooms feel. To maintain the best comfort during the winter, LoÉ-366® produces near constant surface temperatures, so buildings keep warm during the coldest months and cool in the warmest months.
When combined with SolarAdapt® Solar Responsive Thermochromic technology, the result is the most energy efficient glass on the Australian market. With a variable Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) figure of 54-11% and an SHGC of 0.32-0.13 depending on the intensity of the sun.
LoE-i89® - a superior low-e which can be isingle or double glazed
LoE-i89® is a single glazed low-e product that reflects escaping heat back into the room, making it the ideal glass solution all year round, especially during the colder months.
LoE–i89 can be glazed monolithic or combined with a high performing hard coat on surface 4 of an IGU for ultimate performance:
- Combined with our LoE³-366 in an IGU, it delivers a U-Value of just 1.1 and a SHGC of just 0.27
- Produces a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of just 0.27
- Meets the most stringent energy standards
- Provides the highest light transmission possible
LoE-i89 not only out performs other clear low-e products, but offers a clearer surface without the haze the other clear low-e products simply can’t avoid, and is the only monolithic product that offers energy insulation and easy-clean technology.
LoE3-340® - the most energy efficient glass facades without blinds or overhangs
LoĒ³-340® low-e glass produces a SHGC figure of 0.18, the lowest of any stocked glass in Australia and is perfect for commercial buildings seeking green ratings.
LoE3 –340 blocks the sun but not the light
What makes LoE3-340 extra unique is that unlike others where the visibility it compromised, it achieves a Visible Light Transmission (VLT) figure of 38%; well within the desired range of 30-40% for commercial projects.
No screens or overhangs necessary no matter the climate or elevation means complete design freedom
LoE3-340 can even assist buildings with western elevations achieve energy ratings without the need for blinds screens or overhangs for more architectural freedom and reduced costs. And the external reflectivity of only 11% makes it highly beneficial for obtaining building permits.
Optitherm® - an ultra-clear and insulating hard coat low-e glass
Ideal for residential windows, Optitherm is a clear Low-E glass product that has exceptionally high clarity and insulation properties. It is offered double glazed (in an IGU) and achieves an exceptional VLT of 78% whilst maintaining a low SHGC of 0.63 and a U-Value of 1.38.
Optitherm is designed to allow the natural light and sun enter whilst providing natural insulation
Providing year-round natural insulation and maximising natural light has an immense positive effect on occupants due to far less reliance on artificial light and cooling/heating, not to mention the associated energy savings and environmental benefits.
