and Single Hungs as Vertical Sliders.
What is LowE ?
Often confused, LowE does not mean Low Efficiency,
it actually means Low (thermal) Emmisivity.
LowE coatings are made up of microscopic metallic oxide particles that reflect infrared radiation while still allowing light from the visible spectrum to pass relatively unaffected.
In simpler terms, LowE coated glass reflects the heat in the summer and keeps the heat in during the winter
What is Argon?
Argon is an inert gas (not a coating or film) that has almost 40% less thermal conductivity that air meaning it helps keep heat or cold from transferring though your windows.
Argon also has some sound reducing qualities.
