THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR NORTHERN CLIMATES
Cardinal LoE3 366® glass is the ultimate performance glass, designed for fluctuations in hot and cold temperatures, such as we experience in our northern climate. It is the ideal choice for Canada’s extreme climate.
LoE3 366 delivers the ideal balance of outstanding solar control and high visibility. It provides the highest levels of year round comfort and energy savings.
Cardinal’s triple layer LoE coating blocks solar gain, reflects heat, and it lets light in. On tempered glass the coating is on the interior and exterior pane (see diagram below).
Other skylight manufacturers only have one surface with LoE3 366 coating, Columbia has two surfaces.
- Triple pane glass with two chambers filled with argon gas. It delivers the best triple glazed U-Value in the industry.
- The 2 coat advantage. LoE3 triple coating on surface 2 & 5 – two of the three panes of glass. Each pane receives 3 layers of coating.
- Reduces sound transmission from outside
- Best U-Value in industry.
- Offered in all standard and custom sized models since 2010.
- 10 Year hail warranty.
DURING THE COLD MONTHS TRIPLE GLAZING KEEPS YOUR HOME WARM & COMFORTABLE
- We love a warm comfortable home during Canada’s long winters. High quality triple glazed skylights with LoE3 coatings have a direct impact on how your home feels. Typically, 85% of the exposed surface of a skylight is glass, and the temperature of the room side pane of the glass directly affects the air temperature in the room. The better insulated the skylight glass, the warmer your room will be.
- The Efficient Windows Collaborative (opens in a new window) suggests that when glass surface temperatures fall below 11°C (52°F), there is a risk of thermal discomfort. LoE3 366 triple glazed glass offers the best protection against the coldest outdoor conditions.
ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF THE SUN – NATURAL LIGHT WITH MINIMAL SOLAR HEAT GAIN & UV RAYS
- We all love sunlight, but when the temperature soars and the sun is high and intense, an ordinary skylight does not handle the extreme heat as well.
- Cardinal’s LoE3 366 coating has been specially formulated to reflect the sun’s heat without affecting the view. It lets more light in and keeps more heat out, so your home stays cool and comfortable. Cardinal’s patented LoE3 366 coating provides the ultimate in performance of all LoE products – each pane receives three layers of the coating.
- LoE3 366 provides exceptional fading protection as well. It blocks 95% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays (a leading cause of fading), so it will help your furniture, carpets, curtains and wall coverings stay beautiful for years to come.
SOUND REDUCTION – HELPING MAKE YOUR HOME A QUIET PEACEFUL SANCTUARY
- Triple pane glass provides insulation from exterior noise, such as traffic, general street noise and planes.
- Enjoy the calming experience of living in a quiet home.
