When the temperature is heading to the top of the thermometer, ordinary window glass simply welcomes in the heat. Cardinal LoĒ², however, has been specially formulated to reject the sun’s heat and damaging rays and keep your home cool and comfortable.

The patented LoĒ² coating provides high performance solar control and visual clarity. The end result of all this engineering is that Cardinal LoĒ² provides the ultimate in comfort because it reduces window heat gain by 50% or more when compared to ordinary glass.

Frigid outside, cozy inside.

During cold weather, the insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on how your rooms feel. Typically, 75% of the exposed surface of a window is glass, and the temperature of the room-side of the glass directly affects the air temperature in the room. The better insulated the window glass, the warmer your room will be.

In fact, the Efficient Windows Collaborative ( suggests that when glass surface temperatures fall below 52°F, there is a risk of thermal discomfort. To maintain the best comfort during the winter, select a glass product that produces surface temperatures that will stay above this point during the coldest outdoor conditions.
