AGC Launches Energy Select™ 20 High-Performance Low-E

AGC Glass Company North America continues to drive innovation for new products to meet and exceed the most stringent energy code requirements, while also providing architects greater options for aesthetics.

Following the introduction of AGC’s new triple-silver Energy Select™28last year, the company is now offering this high-performing coating on three of its most popular tinted substrates: Pure Bronze, Pure Grey and Meadow Green. Energy Select™20provides maximum solar control, yielding the highest level of performance available with a solar heat gain coefficients (SHGC) as low as.20, and light-to-solar gain ratios ranging from 1.58 to 2.02, depending on the tinted substrate selected.

The NEW range of Energy Select 20 tinted low-e options and Energy Select 28 offer the combined benefits of maximum solar control and high visible light transmittance—designed for commercial buildings where cooling costs are of primary concern, and the energy code requirements are more focused on the SHGC.
