offer more grid options. All our grids are internal (in between
the panes of glass) so you don't have to clean around them when
washing windows. Choose from flat, split color, contour, or
wood interior grids (or muntins) in colonial (square) or diamond
V-groove glass is beautiful. It adds an element of sophistication
to a room or a particular window. V-groove also comes in colonial
or diamond patterns, as well as Double Prairie (double border
around the edge of the glass).
Brass pencil muntins (if your style calls for it) makes your
Bronze, gray or bronze solar cool (almost mirror like) tinted
glass options give you protection from bright sun or nosy neighbors
and can be selected for any window.
Often referred to as "frosted", obscure glass is a
translucent glass, which allows light in, but prevents outsiders
from seeing inside. It's perfect for bathrooms or any room where
you desire this effect.
Building codes control where and when tempered (safety) glass
must be used. If broken, tempered glass splits into thousands
of tiny pieces and can reduce possible injury. While tempered
glass can add to the cost of a window the safety factor can
be well worth it.
glass is commonly known as the glass that filters out ultraviolet
light. It helps to slow fading of carpets and drapes, Low'E'
is also a heat reflective coating within glass that raises the
R-value (insulation value) of glass. It bounces heat back to
its source, whether that source is the sun in summer, or your
furnace in winter. You stay more comfortable and save money
on heating and cooling your home. We use the best Low'E' glass
in our area. Pilkington's Energy Advantage hard coat. The #1
rated Low'E' glass in Canada for energy efficiency.
When injected between two panes of glass, Argon gas is completely
invisible, yet it slows down the conduction of cold from outside
to inside, again increasing the R-value of glass.
