GLAZING OPTIONS

Columbia will manufacture any size skylight in any of the following glazing options as well as any other available glass or acrylic types.

GLASS

LoE³-366 CLEAR

• Ideal balance of solar control and visible light transmission.
• Provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings.
• Coated with microscopically thin, optically transparent layers of silver sandwiched between layers of anti-reflective metal oxide coatings.
• The LoE³-366® coating is virtually invisible, still allowing 65% of visible light through.
• Blocks 95% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays (a leading cause of fading), helping to protect your furniture, carpets and curtains.
• Provides at least twice the condensation resistance of ordinary glass.

LoE³-366 NEAT

• Naturally clean glass that harnesses the sun’s UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless.
• The titanium dioxide layer of Neat glass reacts chemically with the sun’s UV rays and causes organic materials that are on the glass to decompose.
• Exceptionally smooth, allowing water to disperse evenly or “sheet off” and evaporate quickly.
• Works even on cloudy days, as 80% of UV radiation gets through cloud cover.

LoE³-i81

• All the benefits of LoE³ Clear, plus an additional LoE³-i81 coating on the inside pane of glass which gives you close to triple pane performance in a double skylight.
• LoE³-i81 in combination with LoE³-366® is virtually invisible, allowing 58% of visible light through.
• Provides optimum thermal control for your skylight at an affordable price.

LoE³-366 TRIPLE GLAZED

• Combines three glazing layers and two LoE³-366® coatings to create the most energy efficient option.
• 48% visible light transmission and the best performance against solar heat gain and heat loss.
• Ideal for the Prairies, Northern Ontario, Quebec and colder climates.

LoE³-366 BRONZE

• Reduction in visible light transmission and solar heat gain.
• Helps reduce glare.
• Ideal for rooms that are south facing or require a softer light.

SOLAR REFLECTIVE BRONZE

A mirror finish that reflects the sun, resulting in less visible light and less solar heat gain than a simple bronze tint. The mirror finish offers daytime privacy

HEAT MIRROR 44

• A clear colourless film is suspended between the two panes of glass which divides the airspace into two smaller compartments, providing additional insulation and thermal performance.
• Blocks over 99.5% of ultraviolet rays which cause fading to furniture and finishes.
• 50% better in reducing outside noise versus a standard double glazed unit.
• Superior condensation control, particularly beneficial in high humidity environments of kitchens and bathrooms.

TEMPERED GLASS

• All skylight units include both panes tempered which is up to five times stronger than ordinary glass.
• Ensures protection against hail and windblown debris.

LAMINATED GLASS

• Produced by permanently bonding two pieces of glass to tough plastic interlayer under heat and pressure.
• The sandwich behaves as a single piece, and is same in appearance as plain glass.
• Use laminated pane of glass for additional safety, as glass fragments adhere to plastic interlayer when broken.
• Blocks 99% of ultraviolet rays.
• Effective in reducing noise transmission and fading.
• Available in clear or white interlayer. White will offer privacy, reduced visible light and solar heat gain.

ACRYLIC

CLEAR

Allows maximum amount of visible light.

BRONZE

Allows a clear view through the skylight while reducing the amount of visible light and solar heat gain. Results in softer room lighting.

WHITE

Offers privacy along with reduced visible light and solar heat gain

POLYCARBONATE

Acrylic skylight sizes also available with polycarbonate glazing in clear or choice of colours.
