If you are thinking of building green, your first thought should be your windows. By upgrading the glass in your windows, you can ultimately save more energy in the best way possible. Fibertec is one of the only fiberglass window manufacturers that offer heat mirror glass as an option for fiberglass windows. Heat mirror glass is a superior insulating option that can be added to windows for added thermal performance.
Heat mirror glass is created by placing a unique film between the panes of glass which reflect heat back to its source.These films allow for high light transmittance whilst providing energy efficiency and high performance. With several types of heat mirror films, you can customize your glass to fit your objectives. Heat mirror glass is highly recommended for green building projects, both residential and commercial.
Using heat mirror film in combination with fiberglass windows has become the most advanced system used for insulation. The heat resistant film allowing both heat and the cold out acts as an additional layer of insulation, greatly increasing R values of windows. With the high energy ratings of fiberglass frames, heat mirror glass is a great match with fiberglass and can be used in addition to other insulating options. When heat mirror glass is used with fiberglass frames, a heat mirror fiberglass window is capable of reaching R values of a wall, making the R values uniform throughout an entire structure.
