Energy Efficient Windows Glass Installed on Empire State Building

We Offer The Ultimate, Energy Efficient Glass

That's Good Enough And Green Enough For The Empire State Building!

The Empire State Building has become one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the United States in large part because of Heat Mirror Technology. The Empire State Building upgraded its 6,514 dual pane windows with heat mirror technology, the same technology used in our FreedomGlass™ Heat Mirror Technology. The project reused all of the existing glass and created super insulating glass units in a dedicated processing space located on site in the building.

We Are Now Offering as Upgrade Options: i89 Glass

i89 Glass Technology

Introducing Loå-i89™, our new energy-saving 4th surface coated glass. It offers more light transmittance and less reflectance than Loå-i81. And it’s now available in annealed making it less expensive. Yet it still delivers a center of glass U-Factor of just 0.20 when coupled with our Loå³ or Loå² glass and argon fill in a double-pane unit.

Without argon and with or without capillary tubes, the unit still delivers a U-Factor of just 0.23 – perfect for high altitudes. When Loå-i89 is used in conjunction with Loå³-366®, your windows are in compliance with ENERGY STAR guidelines across the country, including the stricter northern guidelines taking effect in 2014.

What’s more, Loå-i89 is easy to clean and there’s no haze to mar the view. That’s our new Loå-i89, our enhanced performance glass.

There’s no need to go to triple-pane windows to meet the various energy-saving guidelines. No need to invest in redesigning your windows and altering your manufacturing processes either. A double-pane IG unit with Loå-i89 can meet the guidelines.

Loå-i89 is sputtered onto the indoor lite, the #4 surface, thus reflecting escaping heat back into the room and lowering U-Factors. Coupled with our Loå² or Loå³ glass and argon fill, 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 Loå-i89 double-pane unit, you would need to go to a triple-pane unit with a low-E coating in each gap.

We Are Now Offering as Upgrade Options: 366 NEAT+ Glass

366 NEAT+ Glass

Special high Performance Low E366 NEAT+ glass, is a specialized type of glass with nanoscale coatings of metal which helps to regulate the transfer of heat and light. — The "366" refers to the glass's ability to block 95% of harmful UV rays while allowing in abundant natural light. — The NEAT coating on the glass allows for easier cleaning, as it reduces the buildup of dirt and water spots, providing a clearer view.

Neat+ glass is an advanced type of glass that has a special coating designed to enhance its performance and appearance. This coating is made up of a thin layer of titanium dioxide and silicon dioxide, which work together to offer several benefits.

One significant advantage of Neat+ glass is its self-cleaning properties. The coating has a photocatalytic effect, meaning it harnesses the power of sunlight to break down organic dirt and grime on the glass surface. This process is called "hydrophilic action," which allows rainwater and water droplets to spread evenly over the glass and wash away any accumulated dirt, resulting in a cleaner and clearer view.

Additionally, the Neat+ glass coating has a low surface tension, which encourages water to sheet off rather than forming droplets. This "hydrophobic action" enables the glass to dry quickly and more efficiently, reducing the chances of water spots and streaks.

Furthermore, Neat+ glass also exhibits excellent resistance to smudges, fingerprints, and oily residues. The coating makes it easier to clean and maintain since these types of marks can be effortlessly wiped away with a soft cloth or mild cleaning solution.

In summary, Neat+ glass offers a combination of self-cleaning, hydrophilic, and hydrophobic properties, making it a highly desirable option for windows, skylights, and other glass surfaces in residential and commercial buildings. It not only improves the aesthetic appeal of the glass but also reduces the time and effort required for cleaning and maintenance.

Below are the features and benefits of 366 Neat+ glass;

  1. [BLOCKS 95% of HARMFUL UV RAYS]: helping to prevent furniture, flooring, and other belongings from fading due to sun exposure.
  2. [ENERGY STAR]: Energy Star Glass significantly reduces heating and cooling costs.
  3. [ABUNDANT NATURAL LIGHT]: Allows abundant natural light to enter the building.
  4. [SELF-CLEANING] NEAT properties: NEAT GLASS has a photocatalytic effect, breaking down organic dirt and grime when exposed to sunlight. This results in a self-cleaning glass surface that requires less manual cleaning and maintenance.
  5. [HYDROPHILIC ACTION]: Allow rainwater and water droplets to spread evenly over the glass. This helps to wash away dirt and ensure a cleaner and clearer view.
  6. [HYDROPHOBIC ACTION]: Help water to sheet off smoothly, reducing the chances of water spots and streaks. This ensures that the glass dries quickly and maintains its visual clarity.
  7. RESISTANT TO SMUDGES/FINGERPRINTS]: Resistance against smudges, fingerprints, and oily residues.
  8. [ENHANCED VIEW]: self-cleaning properties and resistance to dirt and water spots for enhanced HD view

Triple Pane vs Heat Mirror® Comparison Chart

The chart below shows how triple-pane windows compare to Kensington High Performance Products in several categories: Thermal performance, weight, winter glass temperature, UV blockage and more. Kensington High Performance Products outperform triple-pane windows in every category.

Window R-Value Avg. Winter Glass Temp. (F) SHGC Weight Per Ft UV Blockage Tuned Solar Control System
The Freedom Window Up to R-10+ 65 .20-.60 3.4 99% Yes
Triple Pane w/Low-E Up to R-5 65 .27 5.1 94% No

R-Value: the higher the number the better the insulating value

SHGC: the lower the number the more comfortable the window in the summer heat, while a high number can be used on certain elevations for passive winter-time heating.

STC Rating: the higher the number the better the sound abatement.

Weight per ft: important to keep weight low to minimize wear on operating hardware.

Tuned solar control: the ability to provide windows/gass with different R-value, SHGC, and visible light characteristics to maximize comfort and energy efficiency.

Energy Efficient Glass Heat


FreedomGlass™ Heat Mirror Technology systems achieve warmer interior glass temperatures in winter (and cooler in summer), which makes sitting, working and playing near windows enjoyable. Ideal for any climate, we believe that the combination of improved thermal performance, reduced condensation and blockage of 99.5% of UV rays makes this the premier window solution for homes in the Western Pennsylvania area.


FreedomGlass™ Heat Mirror Technology delivers premium thermal performance — without compromising natural daylight. According to studies, increased exposure to natural daylight reduces fatigue, improves sleep quality, encourages positive moods, increases alertness as well as improves visual performance. Could our windows make your quality of life better? We can’t guarantee that, but we do guarantee the maximization of thermal performance daylight by ensuring high transmittance of visible light through the glass.
