High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ Glass with Heatlock® Technology™
- If you have SmartSun™ glass, coating it with the Heatlock® Technology™ will give your home a feeling of having a triple-pane performing window in a dual-pane. The Heatlock® Technology™ is new to Renewal by Andersen®. This technology applied to windows will take the escaping room heat back into the room. Great for areas that have to deal with cold weather.
High Performance™ Low-E4® Sun Glass
- This form of glass is a great option for those that live in hot/dry climates with little to no shade. The glass has a subtle tint coating to reduce visible light and keep your home cool. Low-E4® Sun Glass filters out heat from the sun which will help lower cooling costs in your home.
