ClimaTech® Your solution for increased window performance.

Low-E Glass filters long-wave radiation. This reduces heat gain in your home from the sun in the summer, keeping your home cooler.

The optional ClimaTech Insulated Glass Package combines PPG s Solarban® 60 multi-layered Low-E Glass with the Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer System and argon gas. The ClimaTech glass package is up to 40% more energy efficient than most other low-E or mid-E glass systems, and provides more than twice the energy efficiency of clear glass units.

Alside UltraMaxx or Sheffield Windows with ClimaTech are so efficient, they far exceed the performance requirements set forth by the US Department of Energy in conjunction with the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) test criteria. The NFRC is an organization that was established to oversee the implementation of performance ratings by manufacturers of window and door products.

Low-E takes on a new duty in winter months. It lets warm solar rays into your home while blocking the heat in your home from getting out.
One of the most critical NFRC tests measures the rate of heat loss through a window or door. This is known as a U-Value. The lower the U-Value, the better the product is at resisting heat flow, which results in a product with a greater insulating value. The chart below clearly indicates that an UltraMaxx or Sheffield Window with the ClimaTech option will be far more energy efficient than a window with a clear glass unit.

Another critical NFRC test is for Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). This procedure measures how well a product blocks heat caused by sunlight. Again, the lower the number, the less solar heat the window transmits into the home. As shown here, the performance of the UltraMaxx Window will increase substantially with the addition of the ClimaTech Insulated Glass Package. The benefit to this is that your air conditioner will work more efficiently, thereby lowering your energy requirements.

UltraMaxx Windows earn ENERGY STAR® approval.
The advanced components and design used in Sheffield and UltraMaxx Windows exceed all criteria required by the ENERGY STAR® program.
The ENERGY STAR® program is a joint venture between the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Energy (DOE) designed to encourage homeowners to purchase energy-efficient products. Using less energy in our homes reduces the amount of CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.
