LoE2 Glass is coated with two microscopically thin metallic layers, which reflect radiant heat while permitting the passage of visible light. In hot climates, LoE2 glass reflects unwanted solar heat, helping to keep your home cooler and reduce cooling costs. LoE2 glass helps keep your home warmer in the winter as well by reflecting radiant heat back into your home. This not only keeps you more comfortable, but also helps to reduce heating expenses. LoE2 glass blocks 84% of ultraviolet rays, which will protect your drapes, furnishings and carpets from fading caused by the sun.
LoE3 Glass delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility by rejecting solar heat while maintaining clear visibility, making it the perfect glass for any climate. The secret is an unprecedented triple layer of a transparent, reflective silver coating that allows daylight to pass through while reflecting heat back to its source. Upgrading to LoE3 glass will ensure even lower heating and cooling costs while providing optimum year-round comfort and the highest energy savings.

Handing is how a door opens. Generally, you want a door to open toward a wall if one is nearby and away from the traffic flow. Imagine yourself standing in front of the door, outside the room or building.
If the door swings in and opens to the left, it’s a left hand swing. If the door swings out, it is a left hand reverse (for outswing).
If you’re standing in front of the door and it swings to the right, it’s a right hand swing. If the door swings out and opens to the right, it’s a reverse right hand swing (for outswing).
