PASSIVE SOLAR CONTROL GLASS
When the weather turns frigid, Cardinal LoĒ-180™ glass is the perfect cold remedy. It keeps homes warmer and more comfortable by blocking heat loss to the outside and letting the sun’s heat stream in. With a glass U-Factor of just 0.26 and an SHGC of 0.69, LoĒ – 180 is the ideal product for passive solar applications. It extends a warm welcome home while achieving the highest ER values.
LoĒ-180™ glass provides you with the highest level of comfort and energy savings year-round. Go beyond ordinary Low-E glass – choose Cardinal LoĒ-180, the ideal choice for passive solar designs.
INSIDE GLASS AND OUTSIDE TEMPERATURES
The superior insulating capability of Cardinal LoĒ-180 is a key factor in the construction of comfortable windows for cold climates. The dramatic comfort improvement from windows with warm glass surfaces also means the relative humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. Proper humidity levels (not too much, not too little) will improve comfort and promote a healthier living environment.
Who says you can’t do anything about the weather? Cardinal’s LoĒ2 coated glass delivers year-round comfort in all types of weather. In summer, it rejects the sun’s heat and damaging UV rays. In winter, it reflects heat back into the room.
Cardinal LoĒ2 glass includes two variations, LoĒ2-272 and LoĒ2-270. LoĒ2-272 offers a little more light transmittance, while LoĒ2-270 gives a little more solar control.
Regardless of where your home is located, choosing windows that provide you with the highest level of comfort and energy savings year-round is extremely important. And choosing the right glass for your windows is the most important factor in that decision. Go beyond ordinary low-E glass. Let LoĒ2 glass help you handle the weather – any weather.
Frigid outside, cozy inside.
During cold weather, the insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on how your rooms feel. Typically, 75% of the exposed surface of a window is glass, and the temperature of the room-side of the glass directly affects the air temperature in the room. The better insulated the window glass, the warmer your room will be.
In fact, the Efficient Windows Collaborative (www.efficientwindows.org) sug- gests that when glass surface temperatures fall below 52°F, there is a risk of thermal discomfort. To maintain the best comfort during the winter, select a glass product that produces surface temperatures that will stay above this point during the coldest outdoor conditions.

The superior insulating capability of Cardinal Loå2 glass is a key factor in the construction of comfortable windows for cold climates. The dramatic comfort improvement from windows with warm glass surfaces also means the relative humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. Proper humidity levels (not too much, not too little) will improve comfort and promote a healthier living environment.
Glass so smart, it controls your comfort.
Although windows provide beautiful views and wonderful natural light, they can also account for up to 50% of the heating and cooling energy consumed in a home. In the summer Cardinal Loå2 keeps your home cool and comfortable by rejecting the sun’s heat and damaging rays. In the winter it helps your home stay warm and cozy by blocking heat loss to the cold weather outside. In short, it can save energy year-round.
*Thermostat settings are the largest variable in establishing the heating and cooling energy savings potential with window replacements. If you tolerate the discomfort from your current windows and don’t change thermostat settings with the weather, consider the savings suggested from the “Fixed Thermostat” column. If on the other hand you frequently adjust the ther- mostat, add space heaters to compensate for cold rooms, or close drapes/blinds to block the sun, consider the additional savings suggested in the “Equal Comfort” column.
The difference is clear.
Cardinal Loå2 glass is ideal for all weather conditions in most climates. In summer, its patented coating blocks 86% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and 63% of the sun’s heat. It even out- performs the tinted glass often used in warm climates. You can see out and the light shines in, with no heavy bronze or smoke colored tints to darken the personality of your home. In winter, it reflects heat back into rooms.
Loå2 glass can also be purchased in hurricane-resistant laminated glass and in a variety of shapes and sizes.
To learn more about Loå2 and other Cardinal glass products, ask your window manufacturer, contractor or architect.

LOW MAINTENANCE, EASY TO CLEAN
Cardinal introduces Neat® naturally clean glass. It harnesses the sun’s UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. Your windows will stay cleaner longer and will clean easier. Homeowners and builders will enjoy the
effects that a little sun, rain and Neat glass brings to windows. Not only that, because Neat is applied to Cardinal’s LoĒ® coated glazings, homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Clearly, Neat glass is the choice for your windows.
It starts with the Sun.
The titanium dioxide layer of Neat glass reacts chemically with the sun’s UV rays and causes organic materials that are on the glass to decompose. It works even on cloudy days, as 80% of UV radiation gets through cloud cover. Thus when it rains, the decomposed dirt no longer clings to the glass, easily rinsing away.
Smoother glass is cleaner glass.
And Neat glass is ultra smooth. A thin layer of silicon dioxide makes Neat glass exceptionally smooth and hydrophilic, much smoother than ordinary hydrophobic glass. This allows water to disperse evenly or “sheet off” and evaporate quickly, greatly reducing water spotting.
LoĒ comfort and efficiency.
When Neat glass is fabricated with Cardinal’s low-emissivity LoĒ coatings, it provides maximum comfort indoors. Therefore, you enjoy year-round comfort inside the home and an average of 25% energy savings annually.
ENHANCED WINTER PERFORMANCE GLASS
DOUBLE˜PANE WINDOWS BECOME TRIPLE˜PANE PERFORMERS.
Lo°-i89 is sputtered onto the indoor lite, the #4 surface, thus re˛ecting escaping heat back into the room and lowering U-factors. Coupled with our Lo°² or Lo°³ glass and argon ÿll, this double-pane unit delivers performance much better than clear triple-pane – a center of glass U-factor of just 0.20 compared to 0.37 with clear triple-pane.
To surpass the U-factor performance of our Lo°-i89 double-pane unit, you would need to go to a triple-pane unit with a low-E coating in each gap.
Lo°-i89 o˙ers several other customer-pleasing beneÿts. Its surface is smooth and scratch resistant, making it easier to clean. Rather than absorbing internal heat, Lo°-i89 re˛ects it back into the room, making your living space feel warmer and more comfortable.
